That video is truly inspirational.

I know I want this one. Here is the packframe:

Uploaded with ImageShack.us

It is a "Modular Rack Carrier - Multicam" for the huge military "Alice" pack, size medium or size large.

Fortunately, I have put no pictures of me online, I think.

My website is "ultralightbackpackingonline" and so no one need know I am shlepping a really big "Alice" pack on a packframe.

I didn't listen to it but watching sure was fun :lol:

The Total Totem backpacker :mrgreen:

He needs a brighter flag attached at the end so fellow hikers don't walk into the end of his pack :mrgreen:

Hilarious when he topples of the cliff

Thanks!!!! put a smile on my face at the end of a long day :D

Connie,
I like the downeast stuff. Those are awesome packs/frames. I could mount my quiver and take-down right to that bad boy.
What are the Alice packs made of now? I had one as my hunting pack for years that was canvas.
It was heavy but I could put my whole climbing system and Tree suit inside it.

My "Alice" pack looks like the same durable stuff they give pilots.

I am going to use it for high volume, but lightweight, winter gear.

I have OD, because I like OD or coyote brown, for the purpose: knock about, don't worry about a little dirt.

My 3-color (obsolete) Desert Camo is better quality material, as well. It was a gift jacket, boonie hat and ranger hat.

I have no idea where I will wear it. I generally avoid "the military look" for backpacking.

Maybe all the early years of "military surplus" and hand-me-down Boy Scout gear?

I am a girl.

My multicam tarp I sent for, however, is absolutely deluxe material and a first-class job of sewing and fittings. The material looks very durable.

Even the woodland camo and foliage green "modular" bivy is the new durable water-repellant breatheable material.

I will look for my camera, and see if I can get some closeup pictures of the inside surface of these newer fabrics.

This is not Gortex.

I appreciate Gortex for bringing attractive outdoor wear to market, I won't own it. It is just too expensive, for me.

I get a few washings, and it is ruined. And yes, I use only the recommended fabric products.

I need more durable outdoor products, than that.

I am working on closeup photos of the materials. Plug and Play is disabled in Administrative Tools > Services.

cadyak, Have you considered if you use one of those "Cat in the Hat" packs in the video?

you wouldn't need a "tree stand"?

...set the pack against a tree, and climb up to the top?

that pack looks like the "swiss army knife" of all packs. Tree stand/polevault/ shelter all in one.
:)
I believe that equipment that is used for hunting and the like has to be a light more durable that the superlight backpacking only materials. I like good old fashioned high denier nylon packcloth. I actually really like the camo too.
I dont use treestands too often anymore. I actually went "lighter" in hunting before backpacking
with the treesuit. I hang my alice pack on the tree a couple of feet over my head for easy access.
