Evening guys,

I am after a specific type of pack. Its one I intend to use for mountaineering, but will also use in work (as the two can sometimes link together - I used to work on a SAR unit and may well do again in the future - but something that I can use around camp and for general duties).

Basically, I am after something like this - but in Multicam:

Nice and streamlined. I dont mind it having MOLLE - thats a bonus to be honest - but my only other option would be to buy an existing pack like this and then krylon it to within an inch of its life :lol:. I'm pretty handy with krylon, but I dont fancy my chances of doing a good job of multicam!

Short of there already being an existing one, anyone know how much something like that would be to get custom made?

Cheers gents,
Matt.

The Arcteryx packs are really streamlined. You don't mention how big the pack is supposed to be but that seems like it would go along the lines of the Khard 45 or Khyber 50. If you need Molle, check out the Echo although it's bigger.

I recently bought a pretty big pack which can still be compressed and tightened up - the Granite Gear Chief Patrol as seen here: viewtopic.php?p=84338#p84338

It's pretty slick and very stable when tightened down. Besides, its lower top profile makes it easier to look up while wearing a helmet, not to be underestimated in mountaineering no doubt. It might be too big for your needs but I would say it's worth a look anyway.

Seraph; my bad mate, I'm looking for something in the vicinity of 35-45L. Basically enough for 2 days worth of kit, so I can walk out of an area if the aircraft can't get to me for whatever reason.

The Khard has featured quite a lot in my research, but its a hell of a chunk of change to drop for a pack. Don't get me wrong, I'm sure the benefits justify the cost, but I'm looking for something a bit lower in the price range. That said, it does look ideal.

The Chief Patrol does look very interesting, ill have to do a bit of poking around and learn a bit more.

Cheers,
Matt.

Having a CHIEF as well, this is by far the best pack I have ever owned.

Tasmanian Tiger, Mystery Ranch.

Can't recommend a specific pack, they have quite a few with various sizes and functions. Having handled both brands, they are good quality.

There's also the Tactical Tailor Extended Range Operator Pack though it might be too large.
