Good backpacks are hard to find. I own several, and only a few of them actually get regular use. Sometimes old school gear is the best and worth checking into. So I was pleasantly surprised with a new purchase of a cheaply priced Medium Alice Pack.
I recently did some searching for a ‘good’ field backpack that I could use for weekend excursions into the woods for remote camping. I didn’t need a big backpack, just something large enough to carry some basic camping supplies. I have always been a fan of ALICE packs, so when I came upon a medium sized bag that was new on Amazon, and that had some good reviews, I figured why not buy and check it out for myself.
The bag came about a month ago and since then I have loaded it up and carried it around with me a handful of times for day hikes in the woods. It carries all of my basic camping gear for roughing it under a tarp tent. I can pack the needed gear, plus about three days of food and water. We are finally getting some warmer temps in my part of the country, so this weekend I am heading out for a relaxing get-away into the woods.
If you are looking for a medium sized ALICE pack that is new and not used military surplus, these are worth checking out. So far I am happy with the construction of the bag, and can see it being used for many years to come for my basic hiking/camping needs. It would make a good bug out bag.
