Army backpack straps for treestands?

I read a post on here a while back about using the straps off an army back pack for your treestand. They have the shoulder straps and the waist strap. I found one at a flea market,brand new for $2.00. I did a search on here but didn't find anything. My searches on here never find anything. If anyone knows what I'm talking about and can help me find what I'm looking for it would be appreciated.

Re: Army backpack straps for treestands?

You're probably talking about the old back back straps that would fit the ALICE frame. Get the gen 2 ones, not the old school gen 1 things those were horrible on anything over a 2k march. Any decent milsurp place should have some.

It is foolish and wrong to mourn the men who died. Rather we should thank God that such men lived.

Thanks Double Lung. That's what I was looking for. Like I said , I can never find anything when I do a search. There must be some big secret that I don't know.

Re: Army backpack straps for treestands?

A couple years ago I wrote about using Army pack straps to carry a climbing stand I bought from Sportsman's Guide in the late '80's. I used the straps from the "ALICE" system that I used during Desert Storm (1991) so as the previous gent said.... they are from an OLD system but the work great. Last month I saw a bunch of LBE gear at the Hazen flea market.
