British Army RUCKSACK SHORT TRIAL NO 117

ARMY BERGEN RUCKSACK (RARE TRIAL ITEM)


Thanks to : mickybiglegs
















GENUINE BRITISH ARMY
SHORT BACK BERGEN

LABEL INFORMATION

RUCKSACK SHORT TRIAL NO 117
VERY UNUSUAL BERGEN

TRIALLED BUT NEVER PUT INTO PRODUCTION.
(MUST HAVE COST TOO MUCH TO WARRANT PRODUCTION)
THIS IS ONE OF TWENTY TRIALLED AT SANDHURST I AM LED TO BELIEVE.
IT IS THE SAME TYPE OF BERGEN USED BY THE BRITISH FORCES TODAY.

BUT WITH A DIFFERENCE
THE BACK IS BLACK MESH LINED AND HEAVILY PADDED LIKE THE FIELD PACK AIR SUPPORT BERGEN
THE WAIST BELT IS PREFORMED AND IS FOAM PADDED
THE WAIST BELT AND METAL FRAME CAN BE REMOVED LEAVING A STRIPPED DOWN BERGEN

THE BACK OF THE BERGEN HAS AN ENCLOSED FOAM PADDED BACK

THIS IS THE SAME CONFIGURATION AS THE INFANTRY BERGEN ON ISSUE NOW.
WITH ONE LOWER OUTER WATER BOTTLE /BASHA POUCH.
ONE LARGE OUTER LID POCKET ZIPPED
ONE INNER LID POCKET ZIPPED.
ONE LARGE INTERNAL COMPARTMENT

DOWN EACH SIDE ARE 2 SIDE COMPRESSION STRAPS
ATTACHED STERNUM/ CHEST STRAP
ALSO INCLUDED ARE 2 X SIDE ROCKET POUCHES ZIP ON.(GOOD CONDITION).

THE BERGEN BACK LENGTH CAN BE ADJUSTED VIA AN EXTERNAL FRAME
( LIKE THE KARRIMOR SABRE 60-100
AND
KARRIMOR 80-130 PACKS)
