I use it. It's easy to load light at the bottom, heavy on top. It is more than adequate for my winter load. Compression straps keep everything tight on your back. I've used it for loads up to 50 lbs. Pocket on the side fits my cut down sleeping pad. It's not a golite, but it's durable, and works well provided you're strict about keeping the load light. Don't bother getting or using the patrol pack. It adds two pounds for an awkward purse.

Retail for a real army one is around 100. Don't get the "mil spec PLUS" versions, they're shoddily made.

Here's one on ebay.

I love the cfp 90, I started using them years ago and they’re my go to. Molle frames are shit and I always lose shit with Alice packs. My only issue is with the two metal frame bars, they tend to bend inward and jut in my back just below the kidneys, that said they’re easily removable. I’ve been thinking about taking a saws all to em and cutting them down a bit shorter and doing some sewing to keep them in place for back support, I havnt gotten around to it though. That and you have make sure the bolts that hold the straps to the pack for height adjustment tend to not want to stay there and losing both of them sucks. Making sure they’re tight in the morning is part of my general routine when I’m on the road. Other than that they’re perfect imo
