Hey everyone, I need a medium sized alice pack for train hopping and everywhere I look online sells them for quite a bit of money, like over 20 bucks which doesn't sound like a lot until you consider that that doesn't include a frame or any straps or anything. Since I'm buying those seperate Im gonna splurge a bit and go for the molle II straps and kidney belt as well as the molle gen IV frame. I was wondering where I can get some or all of that for a fair price. I can try trading the store my old pack but idk if they'd go for that. I already tried the local surplus stores and they sell that stuff for even more than online, I work at a goodwill and know we definitely don't have one and I even checked other thrift stores around the area. What can I do?
We sell all kinds of other stuff in our Etsy store!

The surplus stores your going to are probably the high end type. Try to find one of those dusty ol' type a ones with bins full of random straps and cheap older bags.

Agreed never been to a surplus store that wasn't 10x the price of online...maybe before the survivalism craze.
