Dpm Bergen or mtp

We get issued 75 litre ones that just fit in 2 days, iv been told to get an mtp one but curious cause there's no reviews in them?

Christ, I use the 45l patrol pack for 48hrs! What are you carrying as a cadet that warrants anything larger? An who told you to get one? If they want you to have one they should give one to you not expect you to buy one, what about the cadets who due to circumstances can't afford to buy them?

I think many cadets suffer from the 'bigger is clearly better' mentality, I certainly did whilst in OTC. Again, as another poster pointed out, why do you need 2+ days worth and again you are issued with all the kit you need. Stick with it and save your money for illegal drinking.
There seems to be a lot of cheaper "MTP" variants coming on to the market now (Highlander have only recently launched their HTMC, which is very similar but just a little darker), so I would suggest waiting a little while before you consider buying MTP as it's going to get cheaper as more comes on to the market.

Depending on your age (no don't post it on here), I would strongly suggest that you stick to the 65-75 Litre bergan for the moment, as you are going to damage your joints if you start trying to carry to much weight whilst you are young, which is why I suspect the cadets only issue you a 75 litre one.

110lts - you know you want one for those 4 week patrols you'll be doing!
the bigger your bergan the more shite you will carry. Save your money for beer and porn. and get your self a short back issue bergan.

Have they started issuing the MTP Bergan. I haven't seen it? Only the Afghan daysack.
Get the old DPM one. Save you a fortune.
What you need to do is get the biggest most expensive one you can, make sure there is enough room for your spare kit, 2 x pair or boots and lots of sox and underpants and at least 4 sets of clean dry clothing and your washing and shaving kit. Remember to take a spare everything including boots polish and brushes. Once you have carried it round for a few days and not used any of the kit in it you will then know what size bergan you realy need for a 3 day ex and what kit you need to carry as well. I wouldnt be to stressed over DPM or what ever either.
