I will try and explain my earlier "better things to do than look after their gear" statement. It was not a shot, but i was meaning in the job someone in the military is asked to do, the last thing i would imagine they would want to worry about being careful with a no3 zipper, or something similar.Getting into your sleeping bag with boots on is another example.Their gear has to be super heavy duty. I have never been in the military but i would imagine being in the field would be stressful enough.To say they neglect thier equipment because they chose certain items you would I believe in most cases be wrong, No offence was taken and no offence was not intended by this statement
I know what your saying about off track. Thats why i prefer small narrow packs to streamline scrub travel, because thats the hiking i like.
The dyneema fabric mentioned earlier is one of the strongest available and there was a shortage a few years ago apparently due to filling US military orders.
