Here's the pictures:

I didn't picture any of my Shelter components. I have a Eureka Solitare tent, tarps, sleeping bag, gound mat, wool blanket, etc. Depending what I'm doing/going I'll pick and choose. My hatchet and trowel didn't make it out of the side pockets for the pictures either.

As you can probably tell, it's a little disogranized. If anyone has any suggestions on that front, or stuff I'm missing, let me know.

It would save you some space if you field stripped your MRE's. Plus 1 for the LF RAID man. Love ATS and Lightfighter.

This is true. I also have the philosophy that the MRE is the like a Buffalo to an American Indian... Ever part is good for something. You can use the cardboard wrappings as fire starter, you can cut holes in the main pouch and turn it into a carry bag. (I had a picture of that one, but I can't find it.) Etc. Etc. Plus, when your pack is already XX lbs. what's a couple ozs.? *shrug*

With the most basic field stripping (pretty much just throwing out cardboard and combing 2 meals in each bag, sacrificing 0 calories) you can save 24% weight and something like 30% volume (this is my actual results from a case of '07 MREs). This comes out to 6oz per MRE and almost 1 whole liter of space....

I'm not saying you should do it, but I think the significant savings are worth thinking about. Yeah, you can use the MRE packaging for various things, but there are lighter, more compact options for all of those applications. The big drawback is the reduced lifetime of stripped MRE's, but if you use your bob at least a couple times a year, its pretty easy to cycle through the food.

edit: do you have a link to that pack? I can't find it...

Wow, that is a nice looking pack man!

So, it looks like one main pack and 4 separate added on outer bags?

What was the total price for the whole system, if you don't mind sharing? Thanks.

That pack is bigger than it looks if you can cram all that in there.

Good luck trying to find it in anything but ACU these days. I did some serious bidding when I saw it in Coyote on eBay.

As for the extra pouches, there are 2 open top Nalgene pouches, 1 close top Nalgene pouch, and 1 hydropack w/ pockets. All of that together was only a fraction of what I paid for the pack.

I do like your thinking on the MRE packaging being useful. Its just standard practice for me. It really does save on space, especially when you take out all the icky parts of the meal (rice pilaf)

Icky is a scientific term. Trust me, I'm a medical professional. :mrgreen:

Murph, I think you finally convinced me to replace my issue assault pack with a RAID.

+1 on the tarp clips. I don't see them in many BOBs here but I think they're useful as hell!

Shot of my "stripped" RAID Pack. Same design, just one of the original Eagle Products made versions. With the pack being covered in PALS webbing the add-on pouch options are almost limitless. Great for allowing the mission to drive your equipment. Good packs, good design, hard to beat. (ACU Sucks!)

OK, someone please tell me where I can get a CB RAID pack??!! PLEASE!!!!

That pack looks awesome and after the 100+ bags I've looked at, now that is the one I want!

My google-fu is weaksauce and I just can't seem to find anything other than horrendous ACU. Ugh!

Thanks so much in advance!

-Zack

I presume the tow truck driver that impounded my car two years ago still has mine. If you can find him (Murr's Motors D/B/A Auto Store Towing on Levy Road, Atlantic Beach, Florida), feel free to remove his teeth and/or fingers in any fashion that amuses you and you can have the pack. Just send me pictures is all I ask.

Sorry, but if I'm beating a guys teeth out for a khaki/coyote brown RAID, I'm gonna be keeping it. Thanks though!!
