Manufacturer: Military 8465-01-515-8620
Designed by Arc'teryx, manufactured by Propper, these Improved Load Bearing Equipment (ILBE) Main Packs were first introduced in 2004 to replace the heavier MOLLE Packs for the US Marine Corps.
Designed to carry a load of 120lbs, but distribute it better than the MOLLE system. Feature an internal aluminum frame, thicker more comfortable shoulder straps and kidney belts, padding on the back and compression straps allow you to keep the load more centered.
Heavy duty construction in Digital Woodland Marine Camo Patern (MARPAT) also features a thick rubber tubing around the heavy-duty double zipper pulls that are easy to find by feel in the dark or grip with gloves on, and has zippers the full height of the pack on either side so you can reach into the bottom without removing everything above.
The buckle-on lid also sports an easy to access zipper-close pouch, and the main pack features two elastic-collar pouches on either side on the bottom, and tall pockets that run the full height for longer items like poles or tools, as well as buckle attachment points for the ILBE MARPAT Assault Packs.
Pull the front snap closure to unroll the integreated Hydration Pouch pocket, which buckles in three places. Inside the huge bucket-design pack, there is a collapsible divider to allow separation of the upper and lower areas. Quick-release shoulder straps are height-adjustable, the whole system is one-size-fits-all, and features waterproof Cordura Nylon and ITW Nexux Fastex GhillieTex Infrared-Reduction (GT IRR) Polymer Buckles.
These packs are rugged, very comfortable, and had an initial acquisition cost of over $700.
