Daysack

  1. My old trusty daysack has failed me after 15 years. It cost me £20 from an Army suplus in York, which is now closed down. I have about £40 to spend on a new one (all my pocket money off the wife!). I'm not infantry, but it will be used in the field. Any ideas?
     
  2. Berghaus Munro 35, £56 from the ARRse shop, choice of champions and the rest.....

    Save your pennies as buy cheap buy twice springs to mind when investing in Wynstay/Gelert gear..........

    Aye, Harry's not wrong, cheap daysacks are cheap for a reason.

    The Munroe is very good,alternatively try here for a full milspec quality daysack.
    It's the same make as was sold in the Arrse shop earlier, you can even mount the issue sidepouches on the bugger.

  7. I got the Snugpac Stamina. It's sh*te.
     
  8. Sounds like a brand of condom! :roll:
     
  9. The Munro,Gleaming Day Sack...
     
  10. Disregard what I have written about Stamina backpack previously, it's pure sh*t. Went for a 20k tab this morning with weight in it (approx 30 kilos) and it murdered me, hung over the padding and ruined my lower back. My mate who was wearing a Munro got a good laugh anyway.

    Moral is - buy a Munro, I will be.

    *edit for lesson learned*
     
  11. I've had a Munro for a while now. Good kit but I've always wondered why Berghaus have never made one in DPM.
     
  12. They did, I bought one in the early '80 and its still going strong. (unlike the owner)
     
  13. The munro is awesome but I do like the Karrimor Sabre 35L very comfortable although a bit more expensive.
     
  14. I have a Highlander Forces 33 but its a tad long, pushes forward on the helmet in the prone position if its full
