    Upgrade your alice pack for a few dollars. The biggest compaint about the Alice pack has always been discomfort especially when carry a heavy pack for any time or distance. With the Molle shoulder straps and Molle waist belt you can have the strength of the Alice pack with the comfort of the Molle system. The shoulder straps have 18" of padding instead of 8. The straps have extra padding behind your neck, they also include the dump buckles or quick release and the stenum strap for load stability. compare the two packs. The original style is on the left.

    Notice the wide straps and padding.

    The waist belt is designed like a weight lifters belt to give your lower back plenty of padding and support.

    The straps or pads are $10 each or get both for $15. They are brand new in the wrap. Each piece normally sells for more than the combined price. Shipping is cheap, Send me a pm with your zip.



    If you dont like the DCU pattern, Check out what a $3 dollar pack of Ritz green dye will do in 20 minutes just by adding hot water in a five gallon bucket.

    You have a standard issue set of pads and straps. My low back has deteriorated alot as I have gotten older. If I have to bug out or if I need to transport supplies or carry items over a longer distance, Im going to be hurting. My wife and kids are not going to be the "mule" in this scenario. I figured that I need to plan ahead and make this the most comfortable and safest way to carry my stuff. This set up gets the pack up on the hips better and keeps my low back and abdominal area compressed more so my disk are not taking a beating. The load is better stabilized and my disk are not as likely to shift. If my back goes into spasms, I'm out of commission for a few days. If something bad happens, being down is not an option.
    This upgrade is the ticket for me.

    I'm interested in some of your belt/strap sets. Do you know if the used ACU pattern will dye as easily as the DCU? PM sent with shipping details...

    I have not tried ACU with the dye but suspect it would work just fine. I was extremely dissapointed with a large purchase of the acu shoulder and waist belts. They are usuable but need to be thrown in a washing machine because they are dirty. The other issue with the shoulder straps is that they are missing the lower strap that connects the quick disconnect buckle on one end and the lower portion of the frame on the other. I do have new DCU shoulder straps that are complete.
    I am going to use fastex quick release buckles on the straps and make my own. I think it is a great solution to this issue. Seems others have had the same experience with the missing lower straps.

    I may not have mentioned this but I recently recieved a truck load of new in the wrap Molle shoulder straps and waist belts. These are complete and super nice. Buy the set for $20. The shoulder straps are normally $20 by themselves.
    Thanks.

    Just got back from a backpacking trip with my Alice, 60lbs of gear and on my way down the mountain both straps broke and I had to carry the thing over my shoulder. If you still have straps available I would like to buy some and when the straps broke they broke at the rings and so i need new rings, do you know where I can get some replacements? my Zip is 83815

    When you say the rings, are you speaking of the connection between the upper and lower portion of the straps? There are D rings on some of the packs themselves. I have just straps for $10 for very nice set or you can get a nice used pack complete. Frame, straps, waist pads, and ruck for $20. If you want just the Molle gear upgrade, I have new DCU sets for $15 or good condition ACU sets for the same price. Includes waist belt and shoulder suspension system.
