I went on my first elk hunt 2 years ago and was on a budget. I bought an ILBE pack from a guy here and it worked great on the trip. The only issue I had was the bottom of the shoulder straps seemed to dig into my chest with any significant weight.

I am planning another trip next year and I’m beginning my prep now and I would like to use this pack again as I love the pack itself.

I know guys have replaced the hip belt with one from Kifaru or HPG but has anyone replaced the shoulder straps?

Just looking for any tips. Otherwise, I’m just going to bite the bullet and buy a pack

I have an ILBE. Great pack bag. Frame and straps are meh.

i think any molle 2 straps work but am not sure how good they are.

i would look at at a Mystery ranch NICE frame. $100-150 on the classifieds or eBay. Turns the ILBE into a serious hauler.

Thanks man. I love the bag, just need a different shoulder strap option. I’ll look at both of those!
