The French Army Alpine Backpack is a large backpack that was designed for use in the French Army Alpine Brigade. These soldiers operate in the remote Alpine regions of France where the environment and operating altitudes require nothing but the best equipment. With many operating areas being remote and requiring long hikes to reach, these soldiers require their backpacks to be tough and have the ability to carry everything necessary to be effective in the field.
With these backpacks you will be able to appreciate how well the French Army Alpine Brigade is equipped. Virtually all military forces have backpacks of this size, but few if any are as well designed and manufactured as this one. One of the best designed features of this backpack is the padded removable frame, which is one of the best we have ever seen from any military force. This padded frame will spread the weight of a fully loaded back across your entire back, providing an ergonomically designed carry load that results in less fatigue or back muscle stress. Recognizing an opportunity to add additional pockets, the padded waist band includes an external zippered pocket to complete the design.
For any backpack the cargo volume and storage options is essential in considering a new backpack. These French Army Alpine Backpacks have over 70L of storage space and multiple storage options for your gear. The first section to examine is the main cargo compartment, which for this backpack is enormous. Inside this compartment are multiple segmented pockets in addition to the main storage area so you can organize your load to match your own needs. There is a double drawstring style closure to keep water and debris out and your gear in with a large day pack sized top cover that folds over and buckles into place for security. On the outside of the pack there are two mesh style open compartments for storing things like bedrolls, or other large soft goods.
