I’ve never liked the Space Marine backpacks. So much so, that when I was thinking about getting back into the hobby, they were a bit of a deal breaker for me and Space Marines. This posed a bit of a dilemma because I wanted to collect and paint them. Then I wondered if you could buy after market backpacks. Turns out, you can buy anything you can imagine.
I ended up buying the backpacks above from a company called Anvil Industry. You can find them here. I really like the three transverse vents along the top.
