    The main body os full of little dividers for little obvious reason. You could sort mail in the damned things.
  10. I removed the inner devides and to be honest it hasn't been that bad. The central part is nearly as spacious as an issue NI sack. The side pouches are a bit small though and only have poppers to hold the lid shut so small things tend to fall out if you are throwing the bag around.

    Personally I use one but will get a new daysack, purly because I want/need to attach jetpacks to the side.

    The one thing I like about the Dutch bag is that its DPM (sort of) but looks different, in a twisted (wish you are alley) kind of way...but as previously mentioned, I am sure everyone else thinks I look like a knob!

    I have a dutch day sack courtesy of a cloggie guardsman. I'd not recommend it. Stick with Brit.

    My mate has one. It's shit, he gets ripped endlessly for it.

    It's purely the fact that he's from the Falklands, therefore immune to being ripped due to long years of being a benny.
