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.
After the Falklands war the British army were convinced they needed a large rucksack, which - unlike anything issued at that time - would be ergonomic to carry over long distances. The civilian manufacturer Berghaus had provided rucksacks for special forces in the Falklands and these were the starting point to develop a "Regular Squaddie" version, which would become the PLCE rucksack.
The rucksack has volume to spare, but it's also well designed for use and carry. It has received compliments even from the end-users, who commonly complain about everything you can imagine and even if you can't.
Separate models are made for those with longer or shorter backs, and because we're nice and careful people we have sorted them in the warehouse. Here's a short size guide:
Used but in serviceable condition. The camo pattern is faded and these are not washed. Take a mild detergent,
brush and elbow grease to it if you want to. The rucksacks are likely to have small fixes, names or initials marked with a sharpie and so on.
