A British Army issue day top loading day pack in DPM cordura designed for use during patrol and short range recon work. Patrol pack has fully featured top flap and two non-detachable side pockets. Top flap is elasticated on the sides for a better fit onto the main compartment, and has two zip pockets - one for the expandable map pocket on the top and one for documents to be stored in the flap itself. Main compartment has integrated nylon stuff sack made from basha material, closed by drawstring. This is complemented by a drawstring around to top of the cordura body of the main compartment as well. Side pockets each have an integrated nylon stuff sack made from basha material which is closed with drawstring. Top flap and side pocket flaps are made of cordura and buckle down with adjustable fastex buckles. Front of rucksack has two sewn down straps for the addition of camouflage material or utility straps and carabiners. Side pockets each have two sewn down straps for the addition of camouflage material or utility straps and carabiners. Rear of rucksack has carrying handle and padded back. Shoulder straps are also padded and adjustable. Shoulders have loops on either side at shoulder height for the attachment of carabiners or other useful items. Back of rucksack has loops at waist height for a PLCE belt or similar to be attached giving the rucksack more stability when worn. Some rucksacks come with waist straps as well, but most have been removed so as not to interfere with the wearing of a belt kit below. The 30 litre rucksack shown is one of two designs, the other being a design with zip side pockets and top shoulder strap adjusters to help distribute the weight over the shoulders and upper back.

The rucksack allows easy movement through woods, and also allows enough room to fit all necessary short term equipment. - Submitted by Ian
