Bergen

#1
Not sure if this is in the right place or not, But does anyone know where i can get a good quality bergen from? ive look for rucksacks on the net and in various shops but their asking £100 - £200 for a 60 ltr rucksack that to me looks like it wont last a weekend! preferably 100 ltr as ive got alot of kit to get in there ready for Wales rally GB. Wouldnt mind having one that the infantry use with the side pockets. If someone got one and wants to get rid of it cheap ill throw in an Army sleeping bag as well ( the suited ones with the arms and fold up bottom allowing you to walk in, that all folds up into the hood for easy transportation :) Cheers

I've got a Bateleur 90 going for the price of the postage;



capacity is around 80 ltr internally as far as I can figure out. Total would easily be 100+. It takes 8 x 2ltr SADF canteens around the outside, for a start. PM me if you like.

I was issued with several of these in the '60s (like everything else they didn't like the conditions in Borneo). What would they be worth now?

I use Karrimor SF stuff, the Sabre 60-100 to be exact. Can't fault it for anything except weight. Its weighty because its bomb proof! You can get much lighter kit, but it will not last if used in a typical squaddie way. Also takes standard issue side pockets..or you can buy Karrimors ones.

I also have one of the Predator Patrol which is spot on as well. The pockets are transposable with the Sabre above.
