In my opinion, There are many factors such as enough money provided to army services of US army because of war on terror, the small total equipment because of the smaller scale of the marines than the army which is not astronomical and the contempt mentality of the marines for the army that the marines are stronger than the army, the backpack of the marines also should be better than the backpack of the army.

You do NOT want to be in the middle of a 20 mile hike over a mountainous region ulbe a pack full of about lbs of gear and have one of these break on you. They are easily discernible by the heavy leather-like material that they are ran through.

Below are some pics of their air bleeder valves. Notice the small black area at the top of the assault pack which looks like a tear all the way across the top; that is merely ventilation for that pack. There are pockets which are used for carrying the foot stool, moisture-proof manuzl and other objects in the bottom of the two packs.

It provides the option to hold longer items or you can split it into to compartments with a center flap. Opening the main cabin by unzipping the two-ways zipper, we can see that the opening of the pack is enough big to take objects, at the same time, we can see the difference of the two packs that there are three inserters which were used to carry medical instruments and medicines. Then fold to one side the excess lip of the bag and hold it flat while you fold it again.

Once you disconnect the rear buckle you gain access to mnaual main compartment. Next the pack includes soft padding on both the hip bet and shoulder straps.

It is a small pack although its volume is 39L in my opinion, the pack with a volume of more than 40L is a medium-sized pack, the pack with a volume of less than 40L is a small pack. Three compartments and a net bag, velcro controls the opening and closing of two compartments, one-way zipper controls the opening and closing of the third compartment.


The corpsman pack without medical inserter is same with assault pack. Source water bags can be used separately, and be used as an external water bags combination, for example, the water bags combination can be attached to some kinds of packs like MTV or SPC.

The BLUE arrow is pointing to one side of the chest mxnual, which can help alleviate some weight from your shoulders. The marking on the shoulder straps are the contract number of army of USA and storage number of US army know as two numbers.

I pack has the black padding and features and the Gen. The holder at the top of the pack is very sturdy, the bottom part is the water line outlet of hydration. Underneath this carry flap you can find a larger surface of molle webbing if that will better suit your needs and you can simply roll the flap up and out of the way of the molle system.

The main cabin was separated and connected with separating cloth with fasteners when we keep the packs open. About the pack body, the designers adopt the combined design of woodland marpat of the marines and the coyote brown CB for short as the the signature color of the gear, helmet and footwear of the marines.

Took me a minute to figure out how to do the pics. Diversion pipe can be fixed on the straps with fixing strap with elasticity at the left of the pack or right.
