    I'm looking for a Molle strap to put on my Alice Pack. I'm doing a Hellcat conversion on my old medium Alice pack. I'm having some difficulty locating one locally . The Army Navy stores in my area seem to only be open on the days I work and I can't get anyone to answer a phone call. I've tried 3 different stores in my area with the same results.
    Now I'm thinking of ordering one online. I've heard that on evilbay they like to remove parts of the straps and sell them as extras. I'm trying to get suggestions on honest suppliers to pick one up from. I've already picked up the kidney pad and it doesn't really mater what color it is. (none of my other gear matches)
    Any suggestions would be appreciated.

    Thank you , after the things I've heard I just kinda hate to deal with them if I can come up with another option.
    That may be my only choice.

    That's for the straps only no frame... At that price ya may wanna look into buying the whole pack you can get them pretty cheap.
