When using the CFP-90 LRP pack, I also have the Day pack attached. Inside the day pack is ammo, mags, gloves, batteries, med supplies and some MRE's. The principle of using the day pack. is that if one has to abandon the CFP-90 pack, one would detached the Day pack and you would still have 3 days worth of supplies with you when one makes a quick getaway....

A trick I learned as a kid in scouts is that you can take a standard GI canteen cover (the ALICE type or earlier) and get the inside matted furry stuff wet. When it's warm out, use cool water and it will help keep your water cool, and in the winter, use warm water/hot water to help keep the water from freezing.

Of course, an easy way to get hot water in the winter without much difficulty would be to use the leftover wster from an MRE heater.

I'm not sure you'd want to get it wet in cold weather. The round canteens with wool sides are also meant to be dampened in hot weather to cool the water inside.

Yep, evaporation cools the water in the summer, in winter it would just freeze solid once the warm water cooled.

And I wouldn't want to use MRE heater water anyway, the heaters work by using salt to form an electrolyte and react with the two metals in the heater, meaning it is saltwater when the reaction is over. Saltwater dries out, leaving behind microscopic salt crystals in cloth fibers, cutting them to shreds.

For sustained cold temps the .MIL solution is an insulated canteen.

Any chance that we could bring this back from photobucket hell? Or did anyone archive the first few pages they could send me? I recently figured out that my medium ALICE fits the back of my kayak like a glove and would love some of that info again!

He's been significantly less-active ever since his favorite popcicle-toting punching bag got the permaban. He's posted some since then, but nowhere near as often.

Would be nice to have him come back and do some updates on this thread.

Found a USGI Molle 2 Assault pack in woodland camo recently, it was buried in a pile of the dime a dozen Patrol packs in woodland, these are fairly uncommon and they didn't make them long before the switch to desert camo, the woodland Molle 2 Quart canteen cover isn't that common either.


$40! when they pop up online their usually like $100

Hell yeah, the pics are back! Now for a trip to the surplus store for some pouches and whatnot. I wish I could have done it before my kayak trip last weekend but oh well.

Side note - I loaned my spare medium ALICE to a friend for the trip and it fit the back of her kayak like a glove as well and packed (almost) everything that a female needed for a 3 day trip. I have come to absolutely love this pack and haven't even begun to mod it. Medium ALICE master race!

Those packs are such shit. There is a reason why they were quickly gotten rid of. The zipper is the big issue with them, but all around they are uncomfortable and never balance correctly. I used one most of the time I was in. Not the worst piece of gear I used, but the replacement was so much superior.
