WANTED: Lowe Alpine Saracen

Discussion in 'Military Clothing & Boots' started by gijosh, Apr 30, 2011.

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. I am desperately after a Lowe Alpine Saracen but no where seems to sell them any more! Does anyone have one that they are looking to sell?

    I have looked at the Berghaus Crusader and it looks a good pack for my needs but it doesn't take PLCE side pouches!

    Any help appreciated.

  2. why not get an old issue one ,much cheaper and more availible ?
     
  3. was hoping to upgrade to a more comfortable bergen for extended load carrying
     
  4. And the difference between the 2 ?
    isnt it just the waist belt and a cesarean zipp ?
    oh and a floating lid !
     
  5. Try Berghaus Vulcan instead. Rvops is always a good bet, not competitive on price though.

    Lowe Alpine decided not manufacture them this year - sales were not too good last year. The Vulcan will take issued side pouches but you have to be careful about the zip configuration on the Bergen itself (they have redesigned some of them). Our Bergens are slightly more expensive as they have an additional set of zips tailored so customers can fit an extra side pouch.
