I would buy one at that price.
Man you guys are pretty lucky. The surplus store I went to the other day wants $90 - $100 for full setup packs in fairly good condition (even with some dude's name scribbled on it with perm marker). They want $50 for just the packs without frames/straps in not so good condition. There's another store a few towns over, thinking about checking them out to see if they are more reasonable.
When you find one in my area the Large tend to sell cheaper than Mediums because the large requires a frame.

If you get it and mod it post pics, I'd like to see a different straps set up.
Here is my pack. Did the Hellcat Mod. Also upgraded all the buckles for easier use. Paracord handle. Stuffed it full of a wool blanket and three MREs to show full size. Even rockin my original Black Hills Area Council Patch from my scout days
I haven't gotten a chance to use it yet. But hope to in a month.
