These days the average U.S. soldier carries at least 60 pounds of gear, with extended patrol often doubling that weight. Specialized units may carry more, without factoring in the additional weight of a rucksack, which can come in many different shapes and sizes. A large pack can hold over 100 pounds of gear, while a modest sized patrol pack might hold 20 to 30 pounds. The longer the mission and more specialized the soldier, the more gear needs to be moved.
