ALICE or All-Purpose Lightweight Individual Carrying Equipment gear is a lot lighter than the M1956/1967 hybrid...

The bare LBE is 4.2 lb.


6x 30-round M16 magazines (loaded): 6 lb.
1x M9 Bayonet: 0.9 lb.
1x Compression bandage: 0.1 lb.
1x Canteen with 1 quart water: 2.3 lb.
1x Tri-Fold Entrenching Tool 2.1 lb.

For a total of: 15.6 lb. chaffing the back of your neck because of poor yoke design!

PLUS: to be equivalent to the M1956 kit I showed before:

1x M12 Holster and twin magazine carrier 0.6 lb.
1x M9 Pistol 2.8 lb.
2x 15-round M9 magazines (loaded): 1 lb.

Grand total of 20 lb.
