The pack is rugged and comfortable.
It refuses to wear out. I'd better like it as I'll have it all my life.
I decided to wash it and pulled out the aluminum stays before putting through the washer.
Now I can't figure out where to put them back in
Any clues? hints?

As a true RTO pack, its great with all the little designs for commo gear. The only issue is the radio holder being built around the PSC-5 or PRC-117F. Both radios have been or soon will be replaced with the PRC-117G. Kelty needs to address the radio holder issue to fit the significantly slimmer PRC-117G. What I have done is just zip tie the metal bars of the 117G onto the inner frame to hold the radio high and centered. Works great. I also use this pack routinely as a 24-48 patrol pack, which it works wonderful for. I prefer it over many other packs I have been issued or bought. This is my favorite of many backpacks I own.david

I purchased this bag for Afghanistan and so far have no complaints. It is a great medium size assault ruck if thats what you are looking for and the side pockets are great for Mags and any other gear you might want to stuff.1LT Sean
