Acquired a vintage Coleman Peak 1 pack with frame; some of the hardware is damaged, and the pack fabric has some wear and tear and seems to be not as waterproof as it used to be; being 20 years old (ITW buckles have dates of 94 on them) ; So I decided to transfer my MOLLE and ALICE parts to the frame as a test..it works without needing to be cut down like other PEAK 1 framed ALICE packs!
