This is the official military issue assault pack used by the US Army. This assault pack can be worn alone or attached to the MOLLE Rucksack (not included). Consists of a large main pocket, zippered front cargo pocket, and a small utility pocket with Velcro closure for smaller items. Also has a slot for a radio antenna or hydration drink tube. This assault pack is approved for airborne operations.
These packs have been previously issued and used by the US Army, and as a result will show some signs of wear. Examples of wear include slight fading, dirt, stains, writing, or tape on the pack. The packs are in good condition, are fully functional, and have many years of life left in them.
Inspected all over and found no holes, no frays, not even any stains. All the clips are in good working order. It is only very slightly faded. It is a bit grimy but nothing too bad (about as expected for used gear). It smells like deodorizer but definitely does not stink, which is a huge relief, as I've bought many used packs in the past and most of them were very stinky and impossible to get the smell out. I'm very glad that's not a problem. Overall I would say this pack does not disappoint. However, for those of you wondering if the back stiffener is worth, I am slightly disappointed with mine (its a bit bent up, and I have a feeling I could have just made my own stiffener by cutting one out of an old polypropylene storage container. Its about the same thickness and similar material type. But the stiffener does come with some 1/4 foam padding, which again I could have cut from an old yoga mat. Well, hey its there if you need one, and not a bad deal, sinceceven including the stiffener the pack is an amzing price for its good condition (I just didnt know what to expect from the stiffener is all, and had I known I probably would have opted out). Over all I am very satisfied! Thunderhead does it again!
quick shipping and was quite pleased with the pack. Did not appear to be a used and abused and was in quite good shape all buckles and fastners works and no rips or repairs .
