What Backpack Does the US Army Use

3 mn read

The US Army uses packs in a lot of ways. First of all, it gives us an economical way to pack everything we need for military activity. Everything we use must fit into the backpack, this is a one man’s army, the more things we can carry for less money means more equipment available for us.


A lot of other reasons a military backpack is used is for its protection. Backpacks provide a number of first aid items and things that can be used in case of an emergency. In addition to this backpacks also protect us from weather conditions.


In many military schools, you will find that the students use backpacks as a means of transportation. You can see how easy it is to pack everything you need for a trip. A backpack fits perfectly inside your suitcase or your kit bag and takes up hardly any room. The only problem is that when you are done you have to fold it again.


Another reason why the US military packs such a large amount of gear is because they are constantly on the move. The US Army has to move around a lot. They are required to do military exercises, live in remote areas, and operate in different cities. It would not make much sense to pack everything in our chest and legs when we have a M.A.S.S. system that will help us with our mobility.


Backpacks are also used by military police to pack their equipment. They also have to carry heavy objects and make quick trips out of certain places. In such cases, they need something light enough that they can carry their equipment and still maintain a good body weight so that they do not feel tired when they are carrying heavy objects.


Military expeditions require that they have a pack that is capable of carrying all the essential items for their mission. Since these expeditions usually last for weeks and even months, their pack must be capable of holding up against all the basic conditions. Most army guys do not know that they are actually taking care of themselves while on a mission by using backpacks.


The M.A.S.S. system was actually invented by the US Army itself. It was first used in the 1960s to help them carry light packs while they were on patrol. But it was later used by the USNavy and US Air force for operations in Vietnam. M.A.S.S stands for Mobile A backpack System.


So, backpacks are important for us humans, but they are even more so for our troops. This is why we have to purchase a pack that best suits us and is comfortable for us as well. The same way we do when buying our regular clothing. We first need to know what we are going to be using it for and then decide what type of pack that we should buy. After this, the backpack can be an extremely important piece of equipment.


Some of the types of backpacks that the US army uses include: Osprey packs, Black Diamond packs, Gregory packs, Kelty packs, Columbia Bugaboo, and many other types. We can select a type that will best suit our needs and make sure that the pack will not hinder our movements when on a patrol or a combat mission.

We need to make sure that our pack will be able to protect us from getting wounded or killed and at the same time enable us to carry enough supplies with us that we need for our mission. By knowing what backpack does us army use, we are able to select one that will best suit our needs.
