    Has anyone ever been issued a 135 litre capacity Bergen? Just came over this whilst perusing around on waltbay, fella listing it claims it in "Shortback" config, being a fella who flogs kit myself the only 135 litre capacity one I've been across is the sh*t one by Web-Tex; their "Ultimax" Bergen which I've used myself and only lasted a few days before it fell to pieces, and this one doesn't look like one of them
