Särmä TST Utility strap, 110 cm
A proper no-bullshit general purpose tie-down strap, generous length (110 cm) and operated by a quick and easy to use SR-buckle. A no-brainer accessory for any backpack for lashing sleeping bags, sleeping pads or even tents. Also doubles up as a belt, if the need arises.
Berghaus Crusader 90+20 rucksack
The successor of the legendary Crusader, this is the updated version of the old work horse, now with all the fancy little luxuries the 21st century has to offer! Lots of PALS attchment points, hydration bladder compartment etc.
Terävä Skrama, carbon steel
The Skrama is a versatile heavy duty bush knife - a tool that builds shelters, chops firewood and even carves feather sticks! If you're taking just one knife into the bush the Skrama is a viable option. This is naturally no axe, nor a precision tool for extremely meticulous work, but something in between and a solid and dependable companion above all.
Berghaus Centurio 30 rucksack
A very versatile medium size military backpack, highly adaptable, works equally well as a smaller daypack or for hauling enough kit to keep you going for a few days. Compatible with Berghaus MMPS side pockets!
Särmä TST Backpack cover, M05 woodland camo
A waterproof camouflage cover for backpacks, available in three sizes to fit anything from small combat packs to huge overpacked recon packs. Shields your pack from both rain and surveillance, including the NIR spectrum.
Särmä TST CP10 Mini Combat pack
A smaller, lighter, sleeker variant of our full blooded Särmä TST Combat Pack. 10 liter volume, lots of PALS on the outside, a flat zippered pouch on the back, hydration bladder compartment on the inside, tie down straps against the back and a large mesh pocket on the inside of the panel lid.
Särmä TST RP80 recon pack
The RP80 is a large, top and bottom loading sustainment pack that carriers enough gear to keep you going for weeks. Although streamlined and straightforward the pack design offers almost endless possibilities for modular scaling and optimizing. Extra effort has been put into making the carry system as solid and comfortable as possible.
Särmä TST DP10 Roll-Top daypack
DP10 as in DayPack, 10 litres, is a small roll-top pack with generous PALS webbing for additional pouches and gear. Extremely simple, extremely reliable (and easy to repair if ever necessary). Can be integrated into a rucksack (as a daypack lid) or vest/body armour (as a combat pack) using separate adapters.
British PLCE rucksack, DPM, surplus, with frame
British design at its best. The PLCE ruck is a giant leap forward from the old Pattern 58 Large pack and the GS rucksack. Total capacity up to 110 litres, this is among the best mass-produced army rucksacks ever.
Probably the most beloved of all Berghaus rucksacks, the Vulcan represents an older, military design - simple and robust. An excellent ruck for military use and works equally well in civilian excursions, without even looking too warry.
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.
- External measurements approx. 72 x 34 x 28 cm, excluding the side pouches.
- Roughly 100 liter capacity, but you can fit much more.
- Weight 3,10 kg.
- 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, closes with a strong zipper.
- Removeable side pouches, capacity 10 liters each.
- The side pouches can be attached to one another and carried as a daysack.
- The side pouches are secured by two horizontal straps each, which can be used to compress the main compartment.
- A large pocket 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
All materials used are high quality, combat proof polyester and nylon, YKK zippers and Berghaus buckles.
Made by Berghaus
These are not military surplus pieces, but new stuff straight from Berghaus. Like most others, these are made in China too, but to robust specs - Berghaus doesn't fool around.
