The Marine Corps’ search for a new standard-issue pack is complete. Officials have settled on a final design for the USMC Pack, which Marines will begin wearing downrange as early as October, according to Lt. Col. Kevin Reilly, the pack’s program manager at Marine Corps Systems Command in Quantico, Va.
The pack will look a lot like the gear carried by Army personnel and feature shoulder straps that fit better with and without body armor, offer more adaptable storage, and accommodate pouches with more webbing than the Improved Load Bearing Equipment system Marines use now.
By 2013, all Marines should be issued one.
