Cons: a bit heavier then one of those ultralight packs you can get at REI but IMO this pack is a lot tougher and a lot more versatile. I thought it was going to be a used back but it was brand new, for the price that made it a steal again IMO. the added day pack was great. pair this up with the hydration system like the (Source outdoor tactical gear WXP Hydration system (3-Liter)) and a (USMC COYOTE BROWN TACTICAL 3L HYDRATION SYSTEM CARRIER) and you are good to go.
One thing to be aware of is at the top of the assault pack there is a faux leather flap at the rear(toward the carrier's back) for a hydration tube and 2 longer flaps toward the front or out-facing of the pack where I am told one could hang the radio pouch. Watch for wear and actual tears on these flaps. If one wants to it would be no problem to just sew up the longer flaps to increase water resistance and eliminate further tearing if this becomes an issue.
I suggest heavily applying some form of waterproofing as the only downside to the pack from a hiking or BOB standpoint is it's weight. A google search for official specs turned up nothing but I've seen it listed from 7 lbs to upwards of 10. 7.5-8.5 lbs is my guess. For comparison a gallon of water weighs 8.35 lbs. Translation this sucker is heavy. Thus my insistence on waterproofing because a pack soaked in heavy rain is gonna be 11 lbs plus. In addition to precautionary waterproofing I'm going fairly lightweight with my other pack gear to mitigate the extra 3-5 lbs of weight incurred by this pack vs a hiking specific 75L pack. Adding a lightweight waterproof cover that'll fit a 90L pack would be an option. As an example of mitigating weight I'm using a 8'x10' nylon tarp which weighs 13.3 oz. as shelter. Add 6.2 oz. of steaks & cordage for a total weight of 19.5 oz to shelter 2 people.
I went with this bag because it's big enough to do whatever I want. I wanted something fail-proof, reliable, versatile, and economical. It meets all three criteria in spades and will continue to be affordable as the usmc transitions to a new pack. I like mine enough that I'll possibly purchase another ILBE at some point. At the very least I'll be outfitting the female members of the family with assault packs and purchasing additional assault packs to equip as get home bags for each vehicle. The ability to add extra parts via molle is a real bonus limiting one's flexibility to one's imagination.
