Just did another All-Fastex buckle mod, this time to a Medium ALICE in Woodland from the early 90s. Used salvaged USMC FILBE buckles and Ranger Green thread. Previous owner of the frame had a MOLLE II shoulder strap set, belt and a paracord grab handle. I swapped the shoulder straps for a set of Woodland LC-2 Enhanced strap pads, and added OV Innovations' Improved ALICE Lower strap set. I might pull the trigger on a DownEast Inc 1606 frame in the next week for this pack so that the MOLLE belt is secured better and so that I can add horizontal lash strap to it. Not quite sure yet. This bag is much more likely to be something I would use more often in the woods.
