The Quest for a Modified ALICE Ruck -Update # 1

A quick update on the rucksack Mod.

I finally got my modded medium ALICE ruck back from the shop yesterday. I had the pockets removed and a MOLLE/PALS rack installed on the outside and had quick release clips added to the compression straps. Now I just have to get down to business putting it back together. My goal is to have a BOB that does not exceed 45 pounds. I used to hate humping a monster ruck in the Army and I see no reason I need to now. I am going to pare my gear down to absolute essentials for a 3-Day + BOB.  As you can see, I had the goofy spring buckles on the main straps replaced with quick release (QR) buckles so I can open it all the way without the straps constantly getting in the way.

As I rebuild and pack it over the next few weeks I will post updates.
