    Default Backpack w/ buckets or canisters?

    A few years back I met someone who had a pack with detachable canisters/buckets. What are they called? Do they still sell them?

    do you mean a packboard? it's a frame with a shelf on the bottom, and you can strap stuff to it, like 5-gal water and fuel cans, radios, ammuntion boxes, etc... trail maintainers and wildfire-fighters carry tools on them. ostram has a way-expensive one:

    they also make one especially for chain saws.

    military ones are simpler and cheaper. like this thing, which goes on the bottom of a $30 alice pack frame (sold separately):

    kind of a bother for regular packbacking if you ask me... but maybe you want to carry something pointy...

    None of those above are the one I saw. It has plastic canisters like a bucket but were shaped like cylinders.

    Was it the LuxuryLite? It has cloth cylinders instead of buckets though. http://www.luxurylite.com/packindex.html
    The older I get, the more I want to know.

    OK, I was wrong about the bucket part. Seeing the picture refreshed my memory. It was LuxuryLite. Mister pooh was right. Thanks!
