So this is just a little MOD for the ALICE pack. These are fast release clips made for the pack that don't require you to cut the webbing loops and sew on new buckles.

You can make these easily by getting some regular clips at REI and simply cutting a slit in the middle of the female buckle. Once it's fed through the bottom loop, you can get a lighter and melt the slit closed so it doesn't break or come off. You just leave the default metal buckle on, and the new fast release buckle sits in front of it. No harm done.

To attach the "male" buckle, feed the straps out of the default friction buckle, and feed it through the loops in the male buckle. Easy as that. Now you have quick access to pockets. And if the plastic buckles break, you still have the metal ones to fall back on.

Monthly Goals

  1. Paying the Bills
    $35.00 of $50.00
    The first $50 in donations go towards paying our monthly server fees and adding new features to the website. Once this goal is reached, we'll see about feeding Matt that burrito.
  2. Buy Matt a Beer
    $35.00 of $75.00
    Now that we have the bills paid for this month, let's give Matt a hearty thank you by buying him a drink for all the hard work he's done for StP. Hopefully this will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.
  3. Feed Matt a Burrito
    $35.00 of $100.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt has a beer in his hand, how about showing him your love by rewarding all his hard work with a big fat burrito to put in his mouth. This will keep him alive while programming new features for the website.
  4. Finance the Shopping Cart
    $35.00 of $200.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt is fed, perhaps it's time to start planning for those twilight years under the bridge... if only he had that golden shopping cart all the oogles are bragging about these days.
