Formerly I had a day's worth of food in each of the outside pockets (3 days worth). Now all of that fits inside the buttpack and it frees up the pockets for other things.
I was thinking though guys, mine is set up for winter but it's getting pretty heavy (around 65 pounds with water). Slogging it into camp and out at the end of the trip is one thing, but carrying it around during would be a PITA... what about carrying a smaller daypack in the space in the frame? I've managed to comfortably fit a Camelbak HAWG (minus hydration bladder) in the space. Once camp is set up, the main pack is dropped off and the hydration bladder transferred to the HAWG. You can also go smaller and lighter... the MAXPEDITION Rollypoly Extreme rolls down pretty tiny.

It is possible to attach sustainment pouches to the side of an ALICE ruck, - this really limits what goes into the outside pockets on each side. The pouches will also flop around a bit. (Shrug) YMMV. Just thought it was interesting to see.

I found that when I wove them, it caused the ALICE itself to bunch up, vertically, so I un-wove them. This is on a Large, BTW. Did your main pack body not rumple at all when you wove 'em?
