    search [FONT=Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif]TRMCBK in aafes.com

    free shipping if you use STAR with order of $49 or more

    as a Marine I have to pay for my own gear but if you're an airmen or squid you probably don't even know what a camelbak is but hey, buy a couple of them anyways

    Umm, you should be issued one actually. It comes as part of the day pack.

    I've been "issued" 2 of them. Tried one with beer, didn't work out the best though.

    Pick up the latest Marine Corps magazine (official).. there's a small article on with a picture of a recruit with a camelbak.. It didn't mention anything on the canteens though. I was wondering if it was a test phase or what, but yeah.. pissed me off since the canteens besides hydrating, were another reason to get killed by the DI's. Whether you didn't have enough water, unmarked, or unsecured canteen pouch... always a good excuse for the DI's to have a sweatfest. :bigthumb:

    They can't get rid of canteens until Camelback makes one that is compatible with the gas mask. Imagine wearing a gask mask for 12 hours with no way to get water. I guess you could just lap up the sweat on the inside of the mask...

    That's what we call it (unofficially), because gas is about the only thing it will protect you from. Is the attachment issued?

    I'm at PI right now. Its not a rumor, but not 100% true. The are doing a test with one series of recruits with camelbaks. They are also testing the IBLE (spelling?) packs with a series as well. Another thing they've changed with the crucible is that the Eagle, Globe, and Anchor ceremony is no longer at the end of it. They still do something at the end but now get the Eagle, Globe, and Anchor sometime during family day in front of there parents (I think).

    i went through the EGA ceremony being before family day and just getting thrashed on top of mount motherfucker

    camelbaks changes the whole dynamics of boot camp training. canteens = boot camp
