    I'm kind of intrigued all the same. Like.you say, it's odd the Germans would have picked a bad pack and I see berghaus here all the time.

    I can try, but I'm crap...

    I don't doubt it looks fine - indeed it looks great, and obviously I've fiddled with it - but it just feels wrong...

    That's odd, a lot of reviews I've seen have been relatively positive about it.

    Can you post some pics?

    I have a backpack I got in Aldi a few years ago and it's done me so far, though the straps feel a bit weak. It's done me this far, but I'm always keeping my eyes out.

    Generally I have a 25l highlander forces for day to day and it's naffing bombproof.

    It felt like it was about 30ft long....

    It felt like nothing would ever stay strapped down - the lid just never felt like it was stable, and because of the sculpted shape of the bottom of the sac I never felt stuff was rammed down into it, more that there was a great load of uneven space all through it that screwed up the centre of gravity.

    I hate it, absolutely hate it - I realise this isn't a good advert - I cannot for the life of me understand why the Germans chose it for their general issue sack...

    I use either a 25 year old Cyclops Roc or a 25 year old Crusader.

    I'm very tempted to flog a 'as new' Berghaus Cyclops Atlas II rucksack...

    90l + 2 5l (I think...) Side pockets with the normal shoulder straps.

    Used once i think, but the truth is there's a reason for that - I found it unwieldy to the point of being uncontrollable.

    If someone has experience of the Atlas and likes it then I'd be happy to sell it on - they are £200+ new - but my experience with it was so negative that I'm hesitant to pass it on to someone who hasn't tried it before...

    Views?

    If you are going overseas you will be issued goggles and safety glasses so don't go buying anything.
    The glasses on issue are Ess and bolle I think the bolle ones are general issue. As for goggles bolle are issued and I think there was a couple of other types

    ESS "profile" is the version used by the DF
    I bought my own pair - to my shame - RDF dont get them on issue, ive already been in eye and ear hospital once due to an exercise in which I had no goggles and have a scratched cornea as a result.
    bought on ebay for about 50 euro - much cheaper these days though - my own are tan brown in color, couldnt get OG version, but looking now you can get any color easily. Use them as safety glasses at home as well.
