This style preceded the Alice lower back pads that have the black side release buckle closure. It is compatible with both Alice LC-1 and LC-2 pack frames. It is referred to as a lumbar pad. It is designed to distribute the weight of the pack across the small of the back, keeping the bulk of the pack weight on the hip versus the shoulders.

The back pad is a 17" long x 5" wide piece of high density foam covered with cordura nylon cloth. It is Olive Drab Green in color and comes with a waist strap that fastens with an O.D. Green quick release buckle (also known as a "Knuckle buster"). This waist strap is constructed of 1 1/2" heavy duty webbing and is secured around the soldier by tightening a roller adjuster buckle. Tension is accomplished by pulling on a tab attached to the roller adjuster which are located on either side of the pad. This generation I hardware (the roller adjuster is composed of steel alloy) kept the strap in a "Locked in" set position and insured that the soldier's kidney pad would not shift on him when carrying a heavy load.

It also comes with a strap  used to attach the hip pad to the Alice pack frame. The strap runs thru 2 "D" rings that are sewn on to the back of the pad and then threads thru 2 retaining clips on the end of the frame to secure the pad.
