Alright, everybody knows Berghaus, this here is one of their latest military rucksacks, the Cyclops II Atlas. If you're looking for an anatomic, military grade rucksack then this is your #1 choice! Berghaus knows their stuff, Atlas combines decades of military experience into a single, superb package.
Berghaus started their conquest of the military world during the Falklands War, when British troops needed kit that was up to the challenge they were sent to win. Since then Berghaus has been kitting out the British military and many other European armies with their excellent quality rucksacks.
Along with the obvious choice as a hiking rucksack, this works wonders for the traveller too: sizewise it can be adjusted to ease navigating in dense traffic (trains! God-damn trains!) by removing the side pouches, and the not-so-overtly-military appearance could really be an important factor in some places. The most important thing is that the ruck will not disintegrate on you.
These came from the German KSK, which is such a recommendation that these should be good enough for just about anybody!
- External measurements approx. 75 x 35 x 27 cm, excluding the side pouches.
- Roughly 100 liter capacity, but you can fit much more.
- Weight 2,90 kg (with frame).
- Upper main compartment, covered by a large flap which can be adjusted to accomodate even another rucksack under it.
- A internal divider, which can be opened or closed with a drawcord.
- Lower main compartment, accessed by a zipper and secured by two compressionable straps.
- Removeable side pouches, capacity 10 liters.The long zipper makes accessing the stuff inside easy.
- The side pouches can be attached to one another and carried separately (shoulder straps are not included).
- The side pouches are secured by two horizontal straps each, which can be used to compress the main compartment.
- A small zippered pouch inside and a larger one outside the main flap.
- Well padded, sturdy shoulder straps, adjustable in just about any direction.
- A stiffened, well padded waist belt with a studry plastic buckle, either of Berghaus' own design or the usual Fastex type.
These come in four different sizes according to user height. A shorter size is often perfectly useable for a taller person, it simply sits a few centimeters higher up, something of a personal preference.
- Size 2: 160-173 cm
- Size 3: 170-183 cm
- Size 4: 183-198 cm
