You could try joining the Paras or SAS and asking one of the sweats! Why soldiers still use these bergens is beyond me as they weigh 15lb empty! Suppose they're okay for CFT's ect.

Ebay - go and search on SAS Para bergan and it will bring up the sort of thing your looking for. Beware of imitations though, difference between the Para bergan and the GS one. There is also a "modern" version of the Para SAS bergan being sold by a company in Colly, one of their Airborne bergans is up on eBay somewhere. Its supposed to be the next generation of Para SAS bergan.
