You could definitely make some sort of communication pack or other type of pack.

Unfortunately, that particular vest wouldn’t be acceptable as a backplate though. A back plate would need to be made out of one of the approvable armor materials, as well as look non-earthy.

I hope that helps vod! Looking forward to what you come up with!

Den is correct -- it definitely wouldn't qualify as a backplate. you'd end up needing at least a top collar section to make it APPEAR you have the rest of a backplate, but...

It's also earth military, and the CRL's specifically state that all Molle has to be covered -- you'd have to modify it beyond all recognition even to use it as a soft backpack. So you'd basically just end up with a harness... which you could make a lot cheaper with some strapping and a few d-rings and buckles.
