Product Description

When you get ALPS OutdoorZ Commander Pack Bag, you’re getting the Commander Freighter Frame PLUS a 5250 cubic inch Pack Bag. The Pack Bag is great for getting all your gear to your base camp. The Pack Bag includes a front pocket, spotting scope pocket, rifle holder, and two side accessory hinged pockets, in addition to the main compartment. Once you empty out your Pack Bag, it can be easily detached so the Commander can be used as a Freighter Frame also. The Commander Freighter Frame allows you to haul your meat from one place to the next. The Commander comes equipped with a unique lashing system to secure your meat. With as much weight as you’ll be carrying, padded waist belt and shoulder straps are a must. There are pockets for your flash light and knife, as well as a holder for your shooting stix on the lashing straps. With the Commander Pack Bag, you really get two products in one, a Pack Bag AND a Freighter Frame!

I purchased the Alps Outdoor Z Commander w/ Freighter frame pack along with a Kelty Cache Hauler. I have to say that this frame is very good quality and strong. I was very pleased and surprised at the quality of the pack. It also has a ton of space.
Compared with the Kelty I listed, the Alps is quite a bit larger. The frame is heavy and the pack solid. The frame is different than the Kelty but with minor differences. The Kelty pack is much heavier fabric and has metal arms to support the pack shelf instead of heavy nylon straps. The Kelty however is quite a bit smaller.
Honestly, If I knew that the quality of the Alps pack and frame were this good, I would have purchased two and saved some coin. The Kelty is $97.00 more than the Alps. I am disapointed with the Kelty. It has a short frame and pack, and it sells for around $220.00
If you want a bunch of room,a well built pack, and a solid frame for packing, at a great price , buy the Alps.

I own a MOLLE II GEN4 Pack, An Eberlestock V90 Battleship, An ILBE MAIN RUCK, a Large Franken-MALICE, A USGI CFP-90. A Camelbak BFM and a Motherlode (and a few others, truth) ... Now ... I am still evaluating these packs and the ILBE was nearly $300, new ... The Eberlestock V90 was $400 (OUCH!) ...
... I honestly cannot guarantee that this pack will meet all of YOUR requirements ... But I am confident that, for the price, it is the FIRST pack you should purchase and evaluate because I could have saved over $800 if I had found this pack BEFORE buying others. The ILBE is "worth it" but is very heavy and is not optimal ... The Eberlestock V90 is just way over-priced and ain't "all that" ... a good pack, but not **THAT** good".

This pack is really two packs in one (BOTH, at the same time, BTW) ... You can strap a large duffle or a 90 (plus) liter kayak dry-bag or even a quartered deer or a full gerry-can or a stack of 5-gallon buckets, using the cargo-shelf, in conjunction with the provided cargo straps. The ruck portion can fold up and out of the way or can be quickly and easily removed. So can the separate accesory "wings", which have pockets for critical gear. There is a dedicated, elastisized retainer-pocket for a rifle butt (along with upper cynch straps) ... This is a really versatile and light-weight pack that even comes with 3 cargo strap extensions.

Cons: Design employs split-rings to retain the mounting and adjustment pins ... Cotter-type spring-pins (with retention-notches) would be much better but are cheap and easy to source. ALSO ... My friend said that HIS Commander frame was overly squeaky and made too much noise ... He said it bugged him.

You will not find a more useful pack for the money. I intend to use this pack for extended trips, however I recommend a few modifications before you head-out. 1) It has spring rings that retain all the clevis pins. The clevis pins attached the frame and pack together. The spring rings are extremely frustrating to deal with in my dry, warm, well lit living room, so they had to go. Replaced with hair pins from the hardware store, $5, and tie or tape them down so they don't rattle. 2) The shoulder straps are too cheap and will not control weight very well. I was in the military and you want to be able to shift the load between your shoulders and waist belt while on the move. The bottom of the shoulder strap is not attached to the frame as it should be, they stitched the strap to the back side of waist belt. This is not reliable. I replaced the shoulder straps with MOLLE II desert shoulder straps, $15. MOLLE II straps attached to the frame, top and bottom, without issue and greatly increased load stability as MOLLE II uses vertical and horizontal attachment to the frame top side. Remove the lower straps, loop around the bottom frame, thread it through itself and reattach the the strap pads, too easy. Now I can shift the load on the fly and my pack is not rocking back and forth anymore. Get this pack, make some changes, and it will serve you well.

I used my sister's account to order this for a 2-week solo expedition in the Colorado high country that just ended. I used it over 80 miles of bowhunting and fishing between 10,500 and 13,000 feet in mid-late September 2015. It was not a frill item but something necessary for my survival and this review is based on use in extreme, extended circumstances. I'm a huge dude - 6'7" and 270 lbs. and my base pack coming out of a food cache was around 96 lbs. So, the pack had to deal with daily, very heavy loads plus it had to deal with a guy that was big enough to manhandle it fully-loaded. I could tell the pins/straps would have given way if I had continued the fling-it-over-your-shoulder method of putting it on with those loads, so I had to start putting it on sitting down and standing up beneath it. The design is great and I really can't ding it for anything. I wish they had used a waterproof material or included a pack cover. It has ZERO waterproof qualities. I've read the other reviews and I can't understand where they are coming from. One light rain and my 95+ lb. pack turned into a 120 lb. pack despite packing my rain gear on top and taking other basic measures to protect from the rain. I'm not taking points away from the pack because they are claiming any waterproofing, but it sure would have been nice and user beware if they are listening to the other reviewers claiming good use in the rain. Fantastic pack, especially for the money, and it held up under two weeks of extremely rigorous use with no breakdowns. How can you beat that for the money?
