I've just gotten a big parcel from the US today containing an Alice Pack w/straps, zip-up Paratrooper boots and a flightsuit (which unfortunately I seem to be a little bit too tall for it *wince*), so I'm off to a good start
Can I ask how much that set you back roughly?
I think I just really need to get off my butt and just start making a pack.
Not at all, I'll grab the break down (all in US$). Btw I bought these from http://www.armynavydeals.com
Flightsuits = $35.96
Zipper Paratrooper Boots = $58.46
ALICE PACK FRAME = $35.96
I got a lot of other stuff with that order so the freight would probably be different so I won't bother posting that. I also bought some web belts from here, but that was on store credit so I'm not sure how much they cost (it isn't on my online order page) but they do have them. I got the size US 13 boots, which fitting a treat even though I should be US 14. That being said, even with exchange and postage, it was less then trying to buy them from over here.
