    Bergen royal marines?

    Post by british-rat on Fri Dec 14, 2012 9:30 pm

    Hello. The wide range of backpacks that paraded through the islands, my favorite is this:

    It is called "body rucksack arctic" and is a huge junk. However, its imposing frame, does not match the capacity of the bag. Apparently other experimental or first-element in the conflict. Was attributed to royal marines for visual evidence but, in a documentary, I could see a welsh guard with one of these. So what is the specific body of marines arctic rucksack? Does the conflict continued to use after? I think not. regards

    Very nice item many were made by Karrimor.
    look on the alloy frame there is maybe a smaal id tac.

    The Dutch marines also used these!

    The upper cross bar of the frame is screwed in, if removed the Bergen can be sling lower on the frame bringing the whole thing up above webbing height. That left the side bars sticking up but they could be cut down. It reduced the carry potential but made it much more useable, it could be purchased like that from SASS in Lancaster. Ten million times better than the 58 pattern large pack.
