I was recently at one of those high speed gear stores and saw an "alice backpad" it was a full backpad/kidney pad that has two pockets on it for hydration bladders. Looks to me like the bladders would be in the way and rubbin on your back. I was just wonderin if anyone has used one of these and if they are worth the price. I am lookin for a more efficent way to carry these minimun quarts of water ;) thanks

It doesn't really sound too practical. I would need to see it but I don't really see how that would work.

I've been using the mystery ranch NICE frame and I think it's pretty much the best thing since sliced bread. I've owned a lot of civi packs, some rather spendy, and the NICE is by far the most comfortable pack system I've ever used. I have an internal frame mystery ranch pack with the NICE setup as well as a bolstered NICE frame with an ALICE pack on it. Both are a joy to carry compared to my other packs.

That is a nice (pun intended) frame but we cant Jump it unless it's in an Air Bag and my Ruck is usually to big to fit in one.

They have a jumpable version too. I almost bought one in Fayetteville last week, but decided I wanted the bolsters, which they didn't have in stock on a jumpable frame.

I don't Remember if I knew that or not:doh: (going to take another look) but I do know it will/ would be awhile for my Unit to add it to the ASOP. But hey change has to start somewhere, thanks for the heads up.

HOLY HIGH DOLLAR BATMAN! Now I know why I forgot about it, 465.00 for the Frame! A Sherpa would be cheaper!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Holy shit, you're right! I just saw how much the jumpable one is on their site. Must have the damn chute built in or something. I shoulda bought the one in Fayetteville. I don't think they were charging that much for it.

I bet you are right, SC saved me over a hundred bucks on my LBT geting it down there. If you see a deal on one please let me know. I know they are "nice" yuk,yuk but not 450.oo nice. If you hit the Jackpot I'll make it up some how at the shoot.
