I would like to ask a question I forgot to add in the last post...anyone heard of Downeast Inc. I was reading up on some slice mods and ran across the site one time...apparently they also make a few other in service military products as well as the somewhat know FASTmag pouches... Anyway to keep it short the Downeast Inc company makes polymer external alice and molle frames and a harness system as well as an actual pack....mostly Im just interested in whether the frame is any good or not as a viable upgrade from the standard metal alice frame? Any insight, reviews, or experience would love to know.
