ILBE Pack System (Fig. specifics on how these stays should seat on the shoulders and back areas or how to be adjust the stays consult the ILBE user manual. I got a really nice surplus ILBE pack for Christmas and I’m pretty but it would be nice to have a USMC manual breaking it down Barney style.

The traditional culture of marines is different from the traditional culture of the army, so the backpacks of ilb Modular Lightweight Load-Carrying Equipment MOLLE for short of the army are not adopted by the marines.

Mnual marines began to implement the bidding and purchasing for the single soldier carrying equipment in In my opinion, There are many factors such as enough money provided to army services of US army because of war on terror, the small total equipment because of the smaller scale of the marines than the army which is not astronomical and the contempt mentality of the marines for the army that the marines are stronger than the army, the backpack of the marines also should be better than the backpack of the army.

All series of packs of ILBE system are consist of 6 kinds of packs with iobe volume, 3 kinds of waterproofing bag with different volume and a hydration which have three versions the first generation, the second generation and RECON version.

Because the RECON version can not replace the second generation version, in other words, it is not the replacement of the second generation version. A set of packs usually be consist of a 75L main pack, a 27L assault pack and a 3L hydration.

The price of ten yeas ago of this three-piece suit was more than dollars, so ILBE system is the most expensive single solder pack system which was equipped and used massively by the marines of USA even the whole armed forces of USA. The differences of the RECON version pack are embodied in the aspect of the main pack, there are detail comparative introductions in the rest of this article. Look at the differences of the first generation system and the second generation system borrowing the internet photos.

This pack at this level is not designed for carrying very heavy objects, it is just a daily pack with moderate volume and carrying, so it is not very strong. About the pack body, the designers adopt the combined design of woodland marpat of the marines and the coyote brown CB for short as the the signature color of the gear, helmet and footwear of the marines.

This backpack is thick at this level of backpacks with a built-in back board on the back whose width of carrying and straps are moderate, it is very nice to use this backpack in life. It has excellent quality because of the fasteners with military quality. There are 3 horizontal pals webbing of MOLLE system at the sides of the pack for installing other external accessories easily. The holder at the top of the pack is very sturdy, the bottom part is the water line outlet of hydration.

One-way zipper controls the opening and closing of the outer compartment books and other objects can be placed in which. We can open the main cabin by opening the two tightening belts and the two-ways zipper of the main cabin.

The size of the opening is half of the body of the pack for placing more big objects. There is marking of army. There is a drain hole at the bottom of the pack whose volume is big enough to put in a full box ilbw drinks.

Water bag cabin was separated by a spacer layer with elasticity the whole water bags or all water bags can be placed in which. Diversion pipe can be fixed on the straps with fixing strap with elasticity at the left of the pack or right. We can see the small compartment firstly when we unzipper the zipper back board and other small objects can be placed in which.

Source water bags can be used separately, and be used as an external water bags combination, for example, the water bags combination can be attached to ilve kinds of packs like MTV or SPC. For the inlet of water, there is a lid of thread ilve with a rounded corner in order to let user open it easily.


The lid was connected by a rope in order to prevent loss. The dust cover is in the part of drinking, the hermetic seal is very good, The lid was connected by a rope in order to prevent loss.

We can see the top of source water bag by unzipping the horizontal zipper, the body of water bag can be opened for washing. The straps which is matched with the shoulder straps hided in the part of the symmetric opening in the bottom of the pack. We can make a water bag for using independently with shoulder straps, straps and the horizontal fixing straps.

The marking on the shoulder straps are the contract number of army of USA and storage number of US army know as two numbers. The navy and the marines have good relationship because of that they are governed by the Admiralty of Pentagon and they have natural and indivisible coordination in battle and manul. The corpsman and minister of the marines usually be sent by the navy. Corpsman assault pack is designed ,anual corpsman specifically, and recon assault pack is designed for recon units of army.

The war environment of recon units is more sinister than the ordinary infantry, and the war distance of recon units is farther than the latter. So the assault pack of reconnaissance troops have more big volume than the ordinary infantry in order to carry more objects.

Corpsman assault pack and recon assault pack are same in appearance, the difference of them is that there are three inserters for carrying different kinds of medicine and instruments in corpsman assault pack. It is a small pack although its volume is 39L in my opinion, the pack with a volume of more than 40L is a medium-sized pack, the pack with a volume of less than 40L is a small pack.

For carrying lots of medicines or ammunition equipment, the designer has enhanced the bearing capacity of the two packs by contrast with assault pack. We can feel that the bearing capacity of the two packs has be improved obviously when we use the two packs.

The shoulder straps of the two packs are more thicker than the shoulder straps of assault pack which can reduce the pressure of user effectively.

We can make the pack ilve, and make the weight of the pack forward in order to reduce the feeling of backward by pulling the pull rope on the top forward. By contrast with the large soft belt of assault pack, the strong belts of the two packs are more stronger than the belt of ible pack for better bearing capacity.

Fasteners are fasteners with military quality. Fixing strap on the chest can provide stability to user when used. The two-ways zipper controls the opening and closing of the compartment out of the pack, so the pack can be opened very easily for taking objects. Three compartments and a net bag, velcro controls the opening and closing of two compartments, one-way zipper controls the opening and closing of the third compartment.

Bottom pocket cabin can be used by connecting with the inner main cabin or separating separately as required. Bottom pocket cabin has some features such as the near-circular design, two-ways zipper and the wide opening in order to put in and take out objects with large volume. The main cabin was separated and connected with separating cloth with fasteners when we keep the packs open.

Opening ilbr main cabin by unzipping the two-ways zipper, we can see that the opening of the pack is enough big to take objects, at the mamual time, we can see the difference of the two packs that there are three inserters which were used to carry medical instruments and medicines. Manal kinds of medicines and instruments can be classified and stored clearly.

Fixing belt and velcro can play iobe role of enhancing the stability during marching.

Like the separation of the bottom pocket cabin, medical inserter also be connected with the body of the pack by the black semi-circular fastener which can be disassembled when it is not needed. The corpsman pack without medical inserter is same with assault pack.


We can see the metal bar of the pack which was ile and installed between bottom pocket cabin and the top of the pack after opening the pack. Because ible volume of main cabin is not enlarged, its volume is not much bigger than the volume of assault pack except for the enlarged outer cabin and bottom pocket cabin.

Its volume is bigger than the volume of assault pack as a big pack in the small packs for daily use. It is suitable for traveling of suburban areas.

Manuxl bearing capacity is stronger than assault pack obviously. All kinds of accessories and packs with the same size can be placed to enlarge the volume of the pack by the help of PAls webbing of MOLLE system at every part of the pack. The volume of main pack reached 75L, the enlarged volume of recon main pack designed for recon units reached 90L.

Generally speaking, the ratio of the volume and bearing weight is 1: The bearing capacity can meet the need of the marines for carrying, and 80 jin is the limit weight one person can bear there are packs, ammunition and other objects to be carried for the marines. When we need bear mamual equipment with limit weight, a bearing system with ilbs design, strong bear capacity and manuao comfort can reduce the pressure of users.

The two packs have many same advantages such as strong bearing system, strong bearing capacity and comfortable,heavy shoulder straps with good stability. But by contrast with the bearing system of outer rack pack, their permeability is a little worse.

Quack release device refers to that he can get rid of the pack when the user is in danger such as drowning, hurt and other emergencies. There are pockets olbe are used for carrying the foot stool, moisture-proof pad and other objects in the bottom of the two packs. Unzipper the two-ways zipper of the besides of the body of pack, and take out the objects in the pack. Let us see the third difference that there is a skin which can be rolled at ileb front part of main pack.

The skin is used for wrapping mortar shells.

We can see that there are many horizontal PALs webbings at the front part of the body of the pack after Opening the fasteners and removing the cloth.

Without the skin, the marines of recon units not need to carry the mortar shells. The scientific name of this cloth is tail which is a ipbe annotation of the position of this cloth. The tail has stability function that it can wrap and fix the other external packs. It usually be called ear pack because of its position. Recon main pack adopt the same amnual with main pack manuwl top pack. A two-ways zipper controls the opening and closing of top pack which has a big volume equal to the volume of a small assault pack.

We can see the opening of main pack after getting rid of top pack. Tension straps with fixing function are designed and used for top pack and main pack. There are two tightening ropes at mmanual opening of recon main pack, but there is only one tightening rope at the opening of main pack. The volume of recon main pack was enlarged just because of the changing of the opening. The difference of inside of pack is the fifth difference. Let us see main pack firstly, there is a radio pouch fixed by fasteners which was used to fix communication equipment.

We can see the separating cloth when we get rid of radio pouch. We can divided the cabin into two parts by opening the separating cloth which was connected and fixed by the semi-circular fasteners.

Lastly, let us see the waterproofing sealing bag designed for main pack which have two types 56L waterproofing sealing bag and 65L waterproofing sealing bag. But ipbe my opinion, FILBE is msnual result of compromises under the background of reducing military spending by contrast with ILBE system with high price and excellent comprehensive performance.
