Well I've tried to search about the topic, what backpack is used by Rangers?

I've found information that Rangers don't usually use packpacks other than the MAP but I need to find one that I can use with my Ranger impression without getting laughed at.

Any tips? AIII-P perhaps?

Wow have they stoped to use Backpacks now??? You cant use a MAP ona a LLRP now can you, or when your out in the field for more than one day. Id go withe a Jumpable ruck or a small backpack. but hey it all comes down to the mission.

Any 3 day pack would be ok i guess.

Bah, sorry Fred. My lack of typing skills when at work is haunting me :P

What a meant to write is that the only information I have is that Rangers use their regular "paratrooper" sack or an assault pack. It's this assault pack im interested in finding more info about. If it's a regular AIII or something else.

The ranger jump pack is just a modified Med. ALICE pack. You can pick up a similar one from Tactical Tailor. Also that first pic rather shocking, Multicam with rangers.

I know, holy necro, but i think i might be able to contribute to the thread.

The jumpable frame-type pack used by the Rangers in multiple pics is the large ALICE pack, not the medium. I'm assured of this, but for all you non-believers:
Picture of the medium ALICE here. http://west.loadup.com/military/surplus/330.html
And if you take a look at the pic where they are sitting on the tarmac with the packs rigged, you can see that above (or below in this case since thay go upside down when rigged) the three main poches, there are three smaller pouches that's the telltale sign of a large ALICE pack.

I hope this helps!

No one really uses the medium ALICE anyways.

The other option is the old LBT Ranger rucks..

I guess not rangers anyway.
The medium can however be mounted on the frame for the large ALICE, but what's the point? Just load up less in the large ALICE.

The large ALICE is of course a rucksack, if you're looking for an assaultpack i think that the Eagle R.A.I.D. pack is a good choice, but this is sort of a guesstimate.

@danneskjold: Was the LBT rucks jumpable? I can't recall seeing LBT rucks on pics of airborne ops.

Thanks
