I bought a Vanguard one..you can fit issue side pouches and it rolls down to almost nothing to fit in your bergan...had it while now and it seems quite robust..so far. :)

The MOLLE (US quick attachment system) style versions are pretty good, strong, will accept a camel pak and you can attach just about anything to them :-D

er - why do you need one, you aren't doing anything for the next 6 months. Try Ebay for all the TA who are selling their kit, it will be a lot cheaper than buying new.

Why dont you hold off, see how many are advertised on Ebay over the next 5- :? months. Sure as shit folk will be punting their kit to get cash for hobby no 2

Or you can buy mine instead :x

I got a Highlander NI Clone (Olive Green) earlier in the year. Very good for hill walking and holds all my gold panning equipment with ease. To tell the true I have only used it twice for TA stuff!
There is no point in spending loads'sa'money on some thing you will use once in a blue moon.

Size wise ideal for what? Certainly not ideal for operations unless conducting a short standing patrol.

Camelbak Motherlode... by far and away the Daddy of Day Sacks. About £150 though.
On the Camelbak note, I suggest the BFM 500. Tons of space, relatively affordable, quite comfortable with body armour, a lot of good smaller pouches, and I found that the quality of construction can definitely withstand Afghan wear and tear - quite a pounding, in fact. Comes with a hydration reservoir, so money saved.

Add a pouch like this one to your body armour - you can transfer your camelbak bladder to it when you're not taking the daypack, and you don't notice it when it's empty.

PS: If you have more money, look out for some of the new packs specifically designed to be worn over body armour.
