A fully modern, well designed rucksack named after a famous singer for an unbeatable price - Lowe Alpine Sting that has visited the Dutch army. 50 + 20 = 70 litres carrying capacity and adjustable back. Modern stuff through and through.

Note: the sleeping bag & sleeping mat shown in the extra picture are not included.

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. This is essentially the Lowe brand rucksack but just DPM camouflaged and made for the Dutch army.

Modern design

The bag

  • Total volume 70 litres
  • A large undivided main compartment, save for 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
  • Removeable side pouches (10 l 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 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
  • Main compartment size roughly 35 x 70 x 25 cm
  • Side pouch dimensions about 20 x 35 x 12 cm
  • Weight pretty exactly 3 kg and a few grams.

Material and care

The material is water resistant, IRR treated DPM camouflaged cordura. military grade stuff, very strong. As for care, brush dirt off, use 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 a little list of notable things

  • The frame might require some re-shaping (use 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 or something, we have no resources to meticulously check every tidbit of a pack this complex. By purchasing a used military rucksack for about a third of its actual as-new value, you just have to accept these things.
  • Most things are easily repaired!

It was in a very well used condition, broken zippers, missing straps, probably washed in a stone crusher and then left in the desert sun for years. Over priced and in a poorly shape..the bag has been a good servant for some one, some time,not me thou . I'm putting it on the fire, don't want to resend it, risking some one else will end up with the disappointment owning a worn out over priced crappy bag..

Todella kestävä rinkka ja tuntuu mukavalta selässä hieman raskaammassakin lastissa. Sivutaskut sen verran isot että meinaa mennä epäkäytännöllisen puolelle kun niihin saa melkoiset määrät tavaraa. Hyvin säädettävissä, vetoketjut tuntuisi olevan kestävää sorttia. Kunto näissä vaihtelee aika reippaasti, suosittelen paikan päällä tonkimista.

Pari vuotta ollut käytössä ja hyvin toiminut. Ollut mukana thaimaan reppu reissulla, mökillä, metsässä jne... Tilaa riittää ja sivutaskut vaan plussaa. Kestää hyvin riepottelua, ei tarvii sääliä käytössä! En vaihda pois ennen kuin hajoaa käytössä.

Reppu on ollu käytössä muutamalla vaellusreissulla ja ei voi kuin kehua! Reppu oli hieman haalistunut väriltänsä, mutta se ei vaikuttanut sen kestävyyteen. Remmit olivat ensiluokkaisia, kuten myös muutkin kiinnikkeet. Reppuun mahtuu sisälle vaikka koko omaisuus ja ulkopuolelle saisi roikkumaan vaikka matkakumppaninkin tavarat. Irrotettavat sivutaskut ja niiden kantoremmit muodostavat pirun näppärän pikku repun kalastusreissulle tai ihan mihin keksitkin.
Jos etsit todella monipuolista rinkkaa, joka taipuu viikon metsäkeikkoihin tai miksei lyhyemmillekin reissuille, niin tilaa heti!
