I like the looks of this pack and others like it, but I've got a question regarding the helmet carrier/beaver tail.
In what situation would you be strapping your helmet to the pack instead of wearing it? I'm not mil, so I guess I'm having a hard time envisioning when this would be used for that application.
Because you're not always wearing your helmet, and it's one more thing to lug around with your weapon. Think of traveling when not in combat / training operations, helmets are hot and heavy so no one wants to be wearing them unless they have to.
Nobody wants to wear one when you have to, either.
