    Default Wildland Gear

    Does anyone know if Military Alice system is flame resistant. Is it an ok idea to wear a alice pack including a field pack in on a woods fire. The pack was sold to me very cheap and I cant afford a 200.00 wildland pack?

    It is not.

    I've seen guys melt their webgear.

    With that said, I'd have no problem with it. Provided it was comfortable and you took care not to lean/leave it on any hot spots.
