  1. At the risk of having my head bit off for writing 'another sodding daysack post'...
    I'm looking for a non Issue daysack that is small enough to shove under the lid of a bergan.
    Just a 6-12hour jobbie. Thanks

    Is that 6 - 12 hours worth of sandwiches or 6 - 12 hours worth of batteries for radios and ECM? Perhaps it is 6 - 12 hours worth of link for the GPMG if in a fierce TIC?

    Pretty pointless measuring capacity in time, don't you think?

  3. I had a 6 hour jobbie on boxing day. I blame the turkey and sprouts. Bloody awful it was. Hoop felt like it had gone a night out with 3 PARA mortars.

    As for your daysac question. What The Duke said.

  4. I know by saying this I'll probably have my account deleted but... Im OTC. The most exciting adventures we go on seperated from our bergans is say, a day and a night nav. I just need something for gortex warm kit radio orders, gloves and medkit. Something that I can badly dive to prone in for a day... A rocket pack on a straps doesnt hold half the kit we take...

  7. I have a good day sack I got from HM supplies, had it since 2004 and it's still going strong. It's big enough to carry radios and plenty of kit but will fit under the lid of a well packed Bergen.


    Though at £55 might be a bit steep for the OTC
  8. many thanks... the muroe or centurio - does the frame not make them a bit of a pain to compress down?
  9. Take the frame out and it folds down smaller than your room in student digs.

    I worked that out all by myself; and I didn't go to uni!

  10. admission standards are slipping at uni, well they the OTC ones are anyway. Good to know it can be removed.
  11. Fair one! ;)

    Why do you specify non issue ?

    Not always the preferred option to use G10 for men, but sometimes just the job.
  13. I specify non issue because our QMS is less than friendly about issuing kit. "2 rocket pouches one for bergan one with this yoke now (insert creative army expletive) off". I cant get one from stores so figured I should look elsewhere rather than put up with rocket pouches.

  14. Two rocket packs?

    No need to thank me.....
