Fellas, y'all remember awhile ago I was asking to see pics of this? Well, here ya go, here's my assult pack as a generic(not mission specific) load. First off its a gen1 kifaru marauder wich is a great aussult pask. Ive got a TAG(in oceanside) eod tool kit with a long horizontal pouch on top of it, a vertical pouch on each side, double mag pouch abouve that on the right as you look at it, BDS naalgene pouch(gonna replace it with kifaru's) on the fron is an eagle utility pouch



pack contents from top left: 2 liter nalgene square bottle, native shemagh,oakleys in hard case,surefire battery carrier, small nalgene bottle for foot powder,leica trinovid 10x32 binos,booney cover, 1pair socks 1pair underwear 1shirt,cleaning gear with hand towel sized rag, cabelas kangaroo leather shooting gloves( I highly recomend these, especially the insulated ones for coldER weather), hygene kit, in the middle is a pair of gloves I picked up at Dixieline:CLC Gelpro Framers they come with the trigger, midle and thumbs cut off.So far they're working great.

next is the contents of the maxpedition cocoon from top right:small nalgene for soap/shampoo,toothpaste,Zicam nose swabs(if you stard to get pluged up, rub one of these babys in yer nose and you'll be fine in awhile),toothbrush cut in half,eye drops,large nail clippers,good tweezers,bic blue blade style double edge razor( I love this thing! I used to go through a mach 3 blade every 2 days!),blades,sunblock stick, all this fits in the cocoon, and can sustain me for quite awile

in the chamber pocket, two halves of a pencil wrapped in Gorilla tape(really strong, really sticky), extra surefire lamp,chapstick, outlet adapters(just in case), Buck diamond sharpening rod, compas clock thermometer combo

and finally old glory, just in case we move into Syria and take over.

there's some other stuff in this pack that I didn't shoot pictures of, i.e: pure aloe extract, shoe goo, pens and pencils, a small nalgene for foot powder, so I hope this helps anybody trying to decide between this pack and anther one. I have become more and more fond of this pack as I have used it. A great pack, thanks to all of you at Kifaru

Nice kit. I like the loadout.

I've got a shemagh just like that, picked up off the floor of a torture chamber in Falluja, Nov 2004. Mine still has some blood on it, too. /images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/wink.gif

Oh, and your room SUCKS! But what at the Stumps doesn't suck? /images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/wink.gif Mine at Camp Pen wasn't much better back when I was there.

I actually found the BDS Nalgene pouch to be one of the best for one handed extraction and replacement. Although that only matters on the your gear and not assault pack. Just waiting for Foliage or ACU to roll out /images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/smile.gif

When I got out, I was a senior Cpl living in a condemned building while all my PFCs and Lcpls were living in a brand new building. I had to go to the next building over (also condemned) to use the shower and head. Believe, I feel you, bro.

Neat set-up. I've got a 1* patch on my Maruder. Haven't been able to find any more patches in about four years. Neat story behind it.
