Der er købt nye rygsække til Forsvaret. Tre forskellige rygsæk-typer på 35 og 70 liter, samt en special rygsæk til tunge og uhåndterlige genstande såsom vanddunke, flightcases, morterplader mv. 

It is now time to retire it a "good" old backpack M / 96, who served the defense forces in just over 20 years. 

FMI has sent the purchase of backpacks in the contract, and have now found a winner. The manufacturer is English and called Karrimor SF. They also delivered backpacks to the British army. 


There are purchased in total 18,064 new backpacks 

11,250 pieces of backpack M / 17, 35 l (daypack) 
6,500 pieces of backpack M / 17, 70 l 
314 pieces of backpack M / 17, HLC. 


All backpacks are Multicam ® and is made of flame resistant Cordura 500

A part of the overall evaluation was a 14-user trial conducted by gardehusarer on Bornholm in June.
User testing included blah. trade lanes with inlaid wounded moments, sharp shooting, packing exercises, marching tours and a special load test, where both soldier and backpack came to the test.


Karrimor SF scored really high in both the soldiers and the experts who assessed the backpacks alongside soldiers testing.








The soldier had to wear a backpack filled with 60 kg sand over a given distance in the shortest possible time to try on the backpack's construction was strong enough. Backpacks were tested both with and without protective equipment M12.

Handed out in the middle of the 2nd half of 2017 

Backpacks soldiers will be able to pick up in the middle of the second half of 2017 and it will be SCCS that determines which devices are the first to have the new backpacks.
