British Army RUCKSACK SHORT TRIAL NO 117

ARMY BERGEN RUCKSACK (RARE TRIAL ITEM)






























GENUINE BRITISH ARMY
SHORT BACK BERGEN


LABEL INFORMATION
RUCKSACK SHORT TRIAL NO 117


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)
