Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Alright guys finally got my date for basic training 3rd october and few of us are going up Ben nevis to take our oath june 12 was just looking for some info on rucksack people recommend me using? looking for something use again once im in not to big just to put in a few bits in water waterproof jacket so on

  2. Search this forum but for Daysacs not Rucksacks yo may get somewhere.

    You may get issued one but not sure. Or you may also just be told to use the rocket pouches while you are in basic!!!

    Wait till you get to your new Batalion/Regt and see what others have before you jump in with both feet
  3. cheers for the reply but im actaully looking for one to use when im going up ben nevis in june as im not issue anything until basic, something that id use again later on so ive not wasted money

    Borrow one. You wont use anything other than what you get issued in Basic, and once you get to your new unit, you'll find it'll either be your NI Patrolsack or your bergen to fit most jobs.
    Don't waste any money on kit, just borrow a mates one for the time being.

  5. cheers for the info guys!!
  6. Linky no worky!
