My understanding is that it is not an Alice pack but a North Vietnamese army back pack. they looked very similar but only had 2 pockets? I recently purchased one from Vietnam and am waiting for it to be delivered so that I can check it out.

The very early ALICE packs had 2 pockets. Not long after they were introduced the style changed to a 3 pocket*main body design.
I git a vintage Polish or Czech pack from Ebay.

hi Pugs , welcome to the forums. this is not correct, the colors and texture are wrong.

the majority of us start out with tan/khaki BDU pants, and paint them. I find them pretty cheap on Ebay by searching Khaki BDU. The ACU is laid out very differently than the BDU.

I followed Mac Braggs painting system on mine and love how they came out. I have painted the others in my Base so we all match style, shading and color.

Google "Czech small rucksack"

https://www.google.com/?gws_rd=ssl#q=czech+small+rucksack

An acceptable rucksack is still available on Amazon for $20

http://www.amazon.com/CamoOutdoor-Czech-Small-Rucksack-Used/dp/B0058CWZYE

and here for $9.95!

http://www.keepshooting.com/czech-m60-rucksack.html

4 of em' for $15!

http://www.majorsurplus.com/Czech-Small-Rucksack-4-Pack-P16075.aspx

ALICE rucksacks are made of Nylon. That alone removes them from consideration, regardless of how many pockets, etc.

Maddie

Tan is the base color for the pants, and a lot of it shows when the painting is done.

this is like what we use in the Base

I can assure you...
you won't be sorry...


With the changes being made to the website and forum, I am seeing some links and such that no longer work.

Here's the corrected link for my offering of Donut helmets that Phyllis referred to in her post.

http://www.forum.rebellegion.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=38021

One of my finished helmets all painted and detailed.




More photos of some of my finished helmets here:
