I swear to god this is the best pack I have ever owned. I bought it back in 2005 and it has survived just about every imaginable situation and condition. Just down right rugged as hell.

If a plain bare bones IBA is a soft skin humvee then the IOTV is an MRAP. It provides increased protection for more weight and less maneuverability.

I know some people who love old alice packs for recreational hiking/backwoods camping. I can't imagine one would be all that expensive.

You don't want an ALICE for hiking. They really are not that great for any distance. I know from experience. Get an REI brand or Kelty bag if you are on a budget.

I never had any issues with them for rucking. I had a frame break on me on like mile 4 of a 12 mile and that was pretty painful with it stabbing me in the back but in good order it was never too bad.

You can make do with them and if it is all you know they are ok. The problem is they don't really have much adjustment. There are much better options for people on a budget.

Yeah now that I think about it my friends are suckers for punishment.
