The latest version of the Forces 66 military rucksack, used by soldiers in the British army and Special Forces.
Made from tough and durable 1000D Polyester fabric this reliable, heavy duty and water-repellent 66 litre rucksack features one, flap-covered main compartment with a drawcord snow collar and closure straps with top quality, UTX Flex branded quick release buckles. Moreover it goes with six separate compartments, including one front and two side zip-fastening pockets for smaller items, both with storm protection flaps, one zipped pocket in the top flap for maps or accessories, a useful zipped pocket on a waist strap, as well as one lower pocket. It is worth adding the main compartment is integrated with a bottom pocket which has its own zipper access. This section can be used as a 'false-bottom' compartment itself for carrying of items required for easy access. 10 gauge self repair curved zips guarantee improved access to all of the parts.
The pack goes with ergonomically designed and adjustable in length padded shoulder straps, about 8cm wide, an adjustable chest strap (2.5cm) with an elasticated section and plastic clip, and a waist strap, approx. 5cm wide, partly padded and fully adjustable, which opens with a large fastex buckle. Moreover it has stiffened and specially shaped padded back: the Airmesh no sweat funnel back system with full flow ventilation channels to quickly dissipate sweat and aid cooling. The back length can be fully customised to place even the heaviest load close to the centre of gravity. New design focuses weight towards waist rather than the shoulders.
The rucksack gives a possibility to attach additional equipment through a number of nylon straps all-round, as well as sewn-in webbing and D-rings on both shoulder straps. It also has an elastic bungee cord on a top lid for external carriage of sleeping bag etc. and allows for volume control thanks to a number of compression straps. Perfect for military as well as camping and hiking.

Have this bag far a while know and I didn't want to write a review before properly testing it. I have to say, this bag will last you more then a life time. Mainly using it for multi day hikes. The durability of this bag is incredible. Super strong, great zippers and carrys like a charm. I do recommend a rain cover for long walks in the pouring rain. Its extremely water repellent, but not waterproof. Great bag non the less.
