A fully modern, well-designed rucksack for an unbeatable price - a Dutch army copy of the Lowe Alpine Saracen ruck (made by ARWY). Featuring 100 + 20 = 120 liters / 7322 cu in. carrying capacity and an adjustable back. Modern stuff through and through.

The Dutch are out of their mind to let stuff this good go. This kit is as good as they come, suitable for situations where poor quality items could mean serious failure. These are current-issue army rucksacks with a pretty much direct lineage to the Lowe Alpine original, just made for the Dutch armed forces. It's a large-sized ruck that carries a few weeks' gear for the woods or everything you need to own to live in urban environments.

Modern design

The bag

  • Total volume 100 + 20 liters / 7322 cu in.
  • A large main compartment, with two low-profile pockets
  • A bottom compartment divided from the main compartment with a drawcord sock
  • Free floating lid with a pocket on top
  • Weather sock on the mouth
  • Removable side pouches (10 l / 610 cu in. each)
  • A huge amount of attachment points for extra stuff and PALS/MOLLE compatible stuff.
  • An inside pocket for a standard hydration bladder (Source WXP will fit)
  • Reinforced bottom

Compression straps on the sides, hidden behind the side pouches. When you remove the side pouches, the side zippers can be closed, making the pack extra slim. The side pouches can also be zipped together to form a daypack, but the straps for this are not included. The space between the rucksack and the side pouch is left open for carrying longer stuff.

Carrying

  • Internal metal frame
  • Padded shoulder straps with proper good adjustments
  • Strap location can be adjusted according to user's size
  • Sternum strap often included
  • Padded hip belt with "Bergbuckle"
  • Padded back

Dimensions

  • Fully packed ruck measurements about 70 x 90 x 40 cm / (27.5" x 35.5" x 16")
  • Main compartment size roughly 40 x 70 x 35 cm / (16" x 27.5" x 14")
  • Side pouch dimensions about 20 x 35 x 12 cm / (8" x 14" x 4.5")
  • Weight pretty exactly 4 kg / and a few grams / about 8.8 lbs.

Material and care

The material is water-resistant, IRR treated DPM camouflaged Cordura. military-grade stuff, very strong. As for care, brush the dirt off, use a mild soap if necessary. The pack won't mind getting wet of course but don't try to stuff it inside a washing machine.

Dutch army surplus

Used but in serviceable condition. The fabric may be faded and there's bound to be some signs of use, but all of the vital parts work. Below is a little list of notable things:

  • The frame might require some re-shaping (use your hands)
  • There might be extra general-purpose straps somewhere attached to the ruck, or not.
  • The chest strap might be missing.
  • Some random not-so-important bits may be damaged.
  • Most things are easily repaired!

Best value for money ever for a rucksack. I bought the previous version and tested in Swedish Lapland for a week long trekking in the wilderness. Excellent ergonomy, lots of space and side pockets can be used as a sizable and easy-to-carry small backpack. Details are well designed, e.g. access to the hood pocket from both sides and lots of MOLLE attachment points all around the pack. Definitely recommend!

One of the best designed rucks I've ever had my hands on. Mine came in very nice used condition with one shoulder strap attached to one of the detachable pods. The pods don't seem to zip together to make a daypack like similar designs, but that's alright. Some small modifications will fix that.

Yes, there are scuffs on the buckles from where it got slid into a truck or dragged across the floor by a previous owner. Yes, there are a couple of small mends here and there, but they were done professionally and are probably stronger than the original material. One small zipper on the lid needs to be replaced, but that's all of 15 minutes of work and a $3 zipper.

Absolutely worth the purchase if you're the type to actually use gear and not just take pictures of it to show off on the Internet.

Sain tämän lahjaksi isältäni, kun täytin pyöreitä ja tekisi mieli ostaa omalle pojalle samanlainen valmiiksi, kunhan tuosta kasvaa sopiviin mittoihin.

Erittäin toimiva kokonaisuus.
Säätöjä löytyy jopa hämmennykseen asti. Varsinkin lantiovyön liukusoljet ihmetyttää, mutta kai niillekin oikea käyttötapa on. Bergbucklea ei minulla ollut, mutta se nyt ei haittaa. N. 30 kg testikokonaisuus oli hyvä kantaa ja tärkeimmät säädöt oli helppoa ja intuitiivista tehdä.

Irroitettavat sivutaskut on ihan 5/5. Alta paljastuu lisää PALSsia ja sivutaskutkin saa vaikka jonnekin muualle PALSsilla kiinni. (Kompressiohihnoja täälä ei ollut, mutta mahdollisuudet sille kyllä)

Rakkotaskuna en päälokeron pikkutaskua allekirjoita. Ainakaan 3 litran Source WXP ei omaani mahdu täytenä kunnolla, enkä löytänyt rakon letkulle läpivientiä, niin kansiläppään se oli käytännöllisempi heittää.

Alaosioon meni helposti Defence 4 ja Defence 6 sinne varmana kompressoituu myös. Alaosassa on myös kolme kompressiohihnaa pistosoljilla.

I considered laying down on the carpet and weeping for joy like a bitch when I received this pack.

Everything pristine, not one of the billions of straps was out of place. Clean. Looked barely issued. Absurd capacity. Fit very well. I expect it will last until I am dead. Intent is to wear it doing ruck marches around my land while singing the patriotic songs of lands I'll never see.

For the price, unbeatable. Thank you for offering it on your very addictive site!

The pack is huge and works as intended, and mine even came with all the straps attached! A quick warning though, some of the packs are an older model in different camo, and don’t have the bergbuckle. Mine was in a us style woodland pattern and closed with a regular Delrin buckle but I ain’t complaining, the pack is bombproof and will outlive me.

Tässä on kyllä rinkkaa kerrakseen, ei voi kuin ihmetellä miten paljon pientä ja suurta tavaraa tuonne voi sulloa - tulee mieleen runsaudensarvi kun tätä alkaa leirissä purkamaan. Ilman sivutaskujakin mahtuu omat ja lasten romppeet telttoineen kyytiin oikein nätisti ja alaosan makuupussiosioon menee heittämällä 2 makuupussia ja kolmaskin jos on untuvan kanssa liikkeellä. Ergonomia on kyllä kohdallaan ja isoakin lastia kantaa mielellään ja kantamuksen huomaakin lähinnä siitä kun polvet rupeavat natisemaan liitoksista.

Erilaisia remmejä ja säätöjä on sen verran ettei ilman 40 tunnin käyttökoulutusta osaa edes sanoa mitä kaikkea niillä voi kiristää ja mihin ne vaikuttavat. Monipuolinen rinkka ja erittäin jämäkkä. Ainoa miinus tulee 4kg+ tyhjäpainosta, mutta eipä tällä ole tarkoituskaan kilpailla keveydellä vaan sillä, että voit vetää vaikka oksasilppurin läpi ilman näkyviä jälkiä rinkassa.

Tällainen tuli sitten innoissaan tilattua. Kyllä leuka venähti lattiaan ja kulmakarvat nousi niskaan asti kun kääntelin käsissäni postin tuomaa likaista, haisevaa ja tahmaista räpsää. Katki olevia, teipillä korjattuja hihnoja. Ihan päin helvettiä vyötettyjä remmejä, joista on mahdotonta sanoa, onko kaikki tarvittava edes paikallaan. Kaikenlaista tahraa, tahnaa ja tahmaa siellä täällä. Revennyt oikean olkahihnan pehmusteen sisäsivu, josta täyte pullottaa esiin. Kaikkiaan aivan loppuun kulunut, haalistunut rinkan raato. En voi kuin pyöritellä päätäni, millaista pokkaa vaatii heittää tällaiseen läjään 140 euroa hintaa ja vetäistä hehkutusten kera nettiin myyntiin. Paskan maku ja kusetuksen tuntu, lähtee viivana takaisin sylttytehtaalle.

How does this compare in size with the "long back" (174 cm) British PLCE ruck? I have one, and it still seems a bit short. That is, it can't sit up as high as I'd like with the belt comfortably around my waist. I'm 188 cm tall.
