Field Pack arctic patrol

#1
For a number of years i've been in possesion of one of these items, found it useful for various bit's. but what's the "official" use ? I know it say's field pack arctic patrol but why not use a normal daysack ?
For anyone who's not seen one here's a description.
It's made from the same fabric as the insertion sacks with a front pocket that it can fold into there are 2 50mm straps on the back made of the softer tape like you find on bandoliers, they have 4 brass eyelets to adjust the length with enabling it to be worn like a daysack, a flap over lid that tie's with a bit of cord.
A handy well made item but odd, has anyone else seen one before ?

sorry been away for a few days. Its a well made item, approximatley 30 litres in volume. Still can't upload any photos so you'll all have to bear with me on that.
I think ExStab may have hit on it though it does seem ideally suited to foraging.

Do you think the arctic would be the best place to rely on foraging for food? Might it be for collecting snow to melt for water?

Are you sure that's what it states inside the pack, 'field pack arctic patrol '

It may be a field pack 'Arctic Roll' if so it's used to carry shopping from ICELAND......that's why fat scouse women shop at Iceland (coz there skint)
