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

Outstanding if you get a good one...
The first pack I ordered arrived in *Outstanding* condition... So much so that I ordered 3 more for Give(GAW) aways on a YouTube review featuring this pack. Unfortunately they were not so good. One had a main shoulder strap broken with a couple holes in the bottom rubber, but otherwise in good shape. The other two were quite awful, worn, used, abused, dirty, and with more than a few holes in the bottom. Don't let that discourage you since customer service is also *Outstanding* and they aim to please. And, you are likely to get a gem of a pack at... wait for it.... an *Outstanding* price.

More than I paid for! Paid for used item and received what is practically new!
I ordered what I thought was a well worn but usable pack. What I floored when I opened the package and realized that it is for all I know never used. Maybe I was lucky. There's not even a scuff or any signs of wear and tear anywhere. The pack is well designed and looked slightly different (better) than the pictures. You can go on YouTube and look at a review done by The Outdoor Gear Review. Look for his video "French Alpine Backpack - Military Surplus". It's the model I received. Will purchase more as they become available.

A nice, useful, and well built pack.
The second pack delivered was a earlier vintage, and made in Korea, (Coree), as opposed to China, (PRC). The build was excellent, very high quality. Subtle differences in the shoulder strap system were evident, but still very similar to the other pack, and by extension the USGI CFP-90.. This one did have an adjustable divider to separate the upper and lower sections of the main compartment, unlike the later version. Nice removable, internal aluminum frame rails as well (in both packs). Condition was minimally used, just a faint shadow of the owners name and rank on the lid, otherwise not too far from new, so again, no complaints on a very good deal.

Very nice pack, especially considering the fair price.
Waited a while for these, saw they were back in stock in the AM, they were gone in the PM by the time the email back in stock notification arrived, so keep on your toes if you want one. A very nice non- military type pack, made in PRC, (China), but superb quality non the less. Very similar in many ways to USGI CFP-90, just no ALICE/ MOLLE capability, Great shoulder strap padding and adjustment options and lots of external attachment options, both vertical along sides, and horizontal near bottom, rubberized bottom, large main compartment with bottom access, (but no internal divider) for sleeping bag removal. A real nice pack worth every penny, Received mine in very good minimally used condition. The zipper on the top of the lid is for a small accessory day pack, it would be nice if KS could snag some of them on the next buying trip.

Solid Pack
I wanted something less Military looking (I was using the ILBE) and this pack is perfect. I really love the easy access bottom zipper and the interior has a separation layer that can be adjusted. I put my MSS bag on top, with clothes inside that for easy access from the top. Add a shovel and axe to each side and you have the perfect BoB. Everything can be accessed quick and easy. There is even an interior zippered compartment useful for storing maps and additional documents that you want to keep dry.
