Re: ILBE mods: Cutting the Fat *NOW with ghetto pack frame*

I will try and get out with mine in the next few weeks and really spark your juices. Loving this pack. I had 60# in it a few weeks ago and it felt fantastic and no hot spots or pain points. It really is a great setup. I would put the ILBE next to any of the top packs out there Kifaru, MR, Exo Mounta...

Re: ILBE mods: Cutting the Fat *NOW with ghetto pack frame*

Update? Let's see the transformation. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Life intervened. I started trimming and had to set it aside. Money is super tight and the current belt is really messed up. $15 for an ILBE belt off Amazon or save up for the PB I really want. I always go by the theory of buy ...

Next steps for me will be to remove the rubber tubing and order a HPG belt. The belt on mine is already fubar and I want the MOLLE on the belt. We'll see w...

Re: binoculars

If you got a bass pro shop close by check out the Pursuit X1 Binos. I picked up the 10x32 they are small compact and run around 100$. Great little bino's.

Re: Easy way to carry some extra paracord

I found one of these tools pretty handy for keeping my Paracord http://5col.com/collections/cordage/pro ... spool-tool but I also does as the OP does and use them for shoelaces That tool keeps everything nice and tight comes with a way to cut it and it can carry a small bic lighter slot.

Re: ILBE mods: Cutting the Fat *NOW with ghetto pack frame*

The PITA of going from the kifaru belt to the HPG belt is that they are enough different that you really have to re-bend the stays to get maximum potential out of each. just weighed my ILBE again, down to 5lbs 10oz with HPG harness and belt. http://i803.photobucket.com/albums/yy317/lucasbfowler/ZS/...

Re: ILBE mods: Cutting the Fat *NOW with ghetto pack frame*

Hey Ronny can you do a Photo of the HPG Harness and how you connected that? Bending stays isnt much of an issue for me. Where are you in Colorado? Wish i could have you over with your pack so I could see what all you took off. Can you do another couple pack pictures for me? Tomorrow I start hacking.
