Tubular riveted backpack frame and Medium Alice pack?


Recommended Posts

I have been researching these on the forum and looking at EBay....the more I look the more confused I get. I will try to get help here in sorting this out.

 

These two items came together but I think the frame is earlier than the rucksack. The rucksack is nylon and looks a lot like a medium ALICE pack but there are some differences. It has a US and some other unreadable ink stamps. The tubular frame I am thinking is Vietnam period? The ALICE pack is later than the frame? Thanks as usual for the help. keith

Thanks again Ken. I need now to find a reference on how to assemble the pack to the frame. As you can see in the frame photo the shoulder straps are now wrapped around and tied to the frame. Regards

We used these at Ft Bragg in the late 60s.

We just called them "Jungle Rucks."

Got one hanging in the garage.

Some had instructions inside and also a metal tray.

We used Indig rucks in VN.

I am unfamiliar with the above; can you explain? Thanks.
