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.

Features:
  • Fully Padded Back Support
  • Adjustable Padded Shoulder Straps
  • Drawstring Closure Top with Buckled Lid
  • Water Resistant Construction
  • Authentic French Army Backpack
  • CCE Camouflage - Close to Woodland

Nice pack!
Bought two of these packs, one for me and one for the wife. We'll use them to keep in our cars as portable bugout bags. These are well thought-out bags, and very sturdy. As other reviewers have noted, they are used but have plenty of life left in them. I spent an hour going through one one night, just looking at the pockets, flaps, closures, and such, getting to know the bag and becoming more impressed as I went along. I found a couple of very minor repairs, but nothing at all that worried me. I must say, the French Army doesn't play around - everything about the bags is economical and clever. I haven't loaded one and put it on either of our backs to test balance or load yet but I did put one an empty one on my back and it felt ... well, RIGHT. Money well spent here, and I do recommend you grab two for you and your spouse before they disappear. Military surplus, it's just the smart way to go.

THE FRENCH DON'T PLAY
Once I reviewed the attributes of this pack I simply had to pull the trigger and purchase it. The waterproof bottom along with the adjustable frame were the selling points that won me over. After receiving the pack I was quite pleased that these aspects were indeed as advertised. Despite a minor rip the pack was a delight to behold. After making the necessary repair the pack was fully loaded and put to the test. A measured forty pounds felt like twenty. An additional strap made up for the lack of a quick release. The hip belt worked to perfection and was easy to adjust. This is the third French surplus item I have bought from Keepshooting and all have been exceptional. Like I said "The French Don't Play."

Legit
So I got this pack today...Yeah it was used, a bit dirty and little beat up but after a few minutes of inspecting it and checking it out I am very pleased. So many unique parts about this pack. Extremely spacious and well built. I wanted something durable/tough for the woods and I got it with this pack. This is definitely a budget friendly steal of a pack. Thanks KeepShooting.
