Highlander military rucksacks go from strength to strength and now have an unbeatable reputation for ruggedness combined with versatility. All the Highlander rucksacks include the 1000 Denier PU coated XTP fabric which is the ultimate fabric for outdoor products that require an above average resistance to abrasion, punctures and tearing. The fabric is also specially coated to provide maximum water resistance. Includes top quality Duraflex buckles, accessories and nylon webbing. There is improved access using curved zips.
Available in olive green, DPM and new HMTC, these rucksacks are especially suited for cadets and outdoor enthusiasts. Camouflage patterns help you blend into your surroundings and hide the dirt better than plain and black colours.
The rucksack features a main compartment (with the option of being split into two), 2 side pockets and one compartment in the lid. This Forces 66L is great for trekking, camping and situations where you need to carry a lot more. Suitable for a range of heights, this rucksack has an ABS (Adjustable Back System) allowing for the straps to be moved up or down so that you can find the most comfortable position. This rucksack is all about comfort, and wide shoulder straps, waist/chest straps, back padding and removable support bars all help distribute weight evenly and reduce pressure while carrying heavy loads.
Great for Duke of Edinburgh, hiking, camping, travelling, carrying gear on a motorcycle and numerous other activities.
All highlander rucksacks come with a lifetime guarantee.
Please note that the velcro patch for attaching badges is only on the rucksack in HMTC colour.
Approx weight of the 66L whilst empty is 2200g.
