Gasman, this particular thread is for the Tropical Ruck. There are threads for all of the other packs you mention. Please add your pics of the other packs in the proper thread.

Gasman while continuing to edit the manual TM 10-276 I ran across a listing for the Tropical Ruck where it is called light weight. Thought you might be interested.

That thing is wild! Are there any markings? If not, it is probably a post-war sporting goods knock off.

 

Did anyone determine the purpose of the Velcro strips on the ARVN pack? This definitely wasn't a field modification done by "some troops". Every ARVN pack has them.
