Here's the cherry on top of the cake if you own the Improved Load Bearing Equipment (ILBE) System. This ILBE Lid serves as a "dust cover" and is designed to protect the gear kept inside. Simply buckle it to the main pack and you're good to go. It has a zippered pouch, MOLLE webbing on top and buckles for the radio pouch attachment. If you don't have the ILBE System, fear not, it has other uses. The Lid makes an excellent bug out bag when used alone.
