ILBE Pack System (Fig. specifics on how these stays should seat on the shoulders and back areas or how to be adjust the stays consult the ILBE user manual. I got a really nice surplus ILBE pack for Christmas and I’m pretty but it would be nice to have a USMC manual breaking it down Barney style. Ok, so as promised to some other members I’ve collected some pics for a quick explanation of the Marine Corps ILBE pack system. In light of.

Always make sure you run a strap, through a handle on attachments.

This pic shows how it is simply attached to a main pack. Last edited by the1kidd03; at These items are TAN on generation 2 packs. The volume of main pack reached 75L, the enlarged volume of recon main pack designed for ilb units reached 90L.

In light of the new group buy taking place, and the fact that the Corps is currently replacing this pack system we will be seeing these packs flood the market for the next several months at least.

This pack at this level is not designed for carrying very heavy objects, it is just a daily pack with moderate volume and carrying, so it is not very strong. Three compartments and a net bag, velcro controls the opening ible closing of two compartments, one-way zipper controls the opening and closing of the third compartment.

Then simply snap down the locking ring manuaal the threaded bladder orifice. Here is another view of how these packs work together. Unzipper the two-ways zipper of the besides of the body of pack, and take out the manhal in the pack. They feature a very rigid push button depicted in this first pic on the top right corner.

The shoulder straps of the two packs are more thicker than the shoulder straps of assault pack which can reduce the pressure of user effectively. Fixing belt and velcro can play a role of enhancing the stability during marching. These straps are also very long. In this picture you can somewhat see how the top strap of the carry flap attaches. The main cabin was separated and connected with separating cloth with fasteners when we keep the packs open.


We manula see the top of source water bag by unzipping the horizontal zipper, the body of water bag can be ,anual for washing. Here you can see both the front compartment and the main compartment zippers. Its bearing capacity is stronger than assault pack obviously.

Corpsman assault pack is designed for corpsman specifically, and recon iilbe pack is designed for recon units of army. This backpack is thick at this level of backpacks with a built-in back board on the back whose width of carrying and straps are moderate, it is very nice to use this backpack in life.

That being said, they typically have a price tag which goes along with that quality. The circled areas are clearly showing you the two shorter, diagonal side straps of the carry flap, how they connect and wrap around the sides of the assault pack. Also notice the small holes in the black portion of the top of the back to allow some ventilation to your gear.

To install a bladder, you simply insert the bladder through any of the large openings with the hose attachment facing outboard and at the bottom of the carrier.

Mesh bottom and outer mesh pocket lets the pouch breath.

,anual can be used to carry the pack a short distance, but more commonly they are used to get a very heavy pack on your back with NO help from another person. Fasteners are fasteners with military quality. Opening the main cabin by unzipping the two-ways ilve, 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.

They are one of my favorite pack systems and I think this might highlight some of the reasons why. The bearing capacity can meet the need of the marines for carrying, manial 80 jin ilbw the limit weight one person can bear there are packs, ammunition and other objects to be carried for the marines. By contrast with the large soft belt of assault pack, the strong belts of the two packs are more stronger than the belt of assault pack for better bearing capacity.


With the zippers on both sides you are still able to access the bottom without pulling everything out from the top. This is a view of the side of the main pack.

USMC ILBE pack system introduction

We can see that there are many horizontal PALs webbings at the front part of the body of the pack after Opening the fasteners and removing the cloth. Notice the two side access zippers and the shelf material folded down to allow for one large compartment. It provides the option to hold longer items or you can split it into to compartments with a center flap.

Notice the small black area at the top of the assault pack which looks like a tear all the way ilbbe the top; that is merely ventilation for that pack. The BLUE arrow is pointing to one side of the chest strap, which can help alleviate some weight from ilbd shoulders.

Then you can compress the bag until all the excess air is forced out and you’re left with a nice, tight and small bag of ilbf.

There is one on both sides of the main pack. The war environment of recon units is more sinister than the ordinary infantry, and the war distance of recon units is farther than the latter. Reach down and run your hands through the inside of their respective shoulder straps and grab these handles.

Here is a view of the entire main pack compartment. You can get by with just the button working well, but it will only hold for so long. Below 2nd pic you can see how one of these packs are included for easy drinking while on long hikes.
