Munro. Until some c-u-next-tuesday had mine away from Cophill down- 14 bl00dy years I'd had that. The issue dpm daysacks are pretty good- the black ones pants.

Yanks do a good desert one in their PX in those parts of the world but they are bl00dy expensive and I'm not sure how robust they are.

The NI Patrol sack thats issued in some places. Good, Strong, a fair bit of kit can be held in it and more importantly when it comes to the end of its life do as l did, exchange it with a nice new one. Thats if you get tours and the storeman is'nt a knobber!

That black issue one is crap. I loaded mine up with not very much and the seams just blew out.

You can get some very nice ones from the spams. I got an assault pack from them and it's very nice indeed.

My money would go with the old, familiar Karrimor day sack.

Got mine when I joined the UOTC 12 years ago (thought it was a bit expensive at the time) but it's still going strong - it's been on countless exercises, drill nights, adventure training, it has been my regular civvy work bag too for all these years. Totally brill. At 30 litres it can be a tadge small though.

Karrimor went bust a year or two back and whilst they're up and running again, I think they sold the rights and the name for the military day sacks to someone else, which are now marketed as Karrimor SF. Much improved over the old versions (now the Sabre Rucsac range), they also now come in more than the basic 30 litre size and in colours other then green!

I find a Morrisons carrier bag is not as good as the Sainsbury although out of choice a Tescos with some black & nasty does the trick!

I got a US Spec-ops Brand one a few years ago and its great. Had to touch it up to DPM style but its robust as hell and very well designed. Bit expensive though, but I got mine of the cheap from the PX at Camp Victory after my Highlander25 exploded.

Yer Deffo the munro I got mine 8 years ago second hand after swaping a stereo for it! An just one minor fault that the zip is on last legs
(And the stereo packed in years ago! )

Karrimor SF Sbre 30ltr or 45 ltr are both really comfy. I suggest 45ltr as you can clip your side pouches and Camelbak to the sides.

Norrøna Combat Pack for me. Expensive, but comfy as fcuk, has everything where you want it, spot on at 35l and, as they're designed to be dragged around the Arctic by Norwegian sneaky types, you'll break before it does.

Did I mention they're expensive? You won't get much change out of £100.

They do some hoofing bergans too, but they do require a mortgage.

Norrøna combat pack: A munroe of higher qualety.
If i had the money i'd go with some septic stuff like Kifaru or Eagleindustries.
Raid pack all the way!
