Hi guys. I am looking for your ideas and suggestions regarding my new pack.

My requirements are following:
It needs to keep me going for 3 to 5 days with my sleeping bag included.
I mainly move with APCs but sometimes I need to have it with me while moving on foot.
Colour preferred is RG, I can cope with MC.
Good back support.

To be worn alone or with a PC?

I guess that I should've been more specific. I was writing while I was busy.. (Still am)

I would use it without a PC mostly.

Looking for a pack from a quality manufacturer.

3 to 5 days would mean what capacity approximately? More like 60L or 100L?

60L: http://www.mysteryranch.com/military/as ... sault-pack
70L: http://www.mysteryranch.com/military/as ... a-bvs-pack
100L: http://www.mysteryranch.com/military/su ... k-bvs-pack

Available with removable BVS for stability over armor (removable = you can remove it to be comfortable if wearing it without armor).

That being said, being in Europe shipping would probably cost a lot, maybe Bergens or Tasmanian Tiger have good options too... not being too familiar with these, I'll let others talk about these options. From my experience, however, Mystery Ranch is an awesome option.

More like 60 to 70L.. The MR packs are really nice but you are right that with shipping and customs it's quite a bang for my wallet.

So far I have only bought day packs/assault packs so anything bigger is kinda grey area to me and your help is really needed. I am going to have a look at tasmanian tiger and bergens packs now..

Double post. Anyone have experiences with Karrimor Sabre 60-100? or with their other packs?

I had one, pretty well build an worth the money. But damn, I loaded this Bastard uo ONE time and sold it after wards. Just too large for my needs if blown up.
But Karrimor is a solid manufacturer, theire SF Packs are like Berghaus but more comfortable in my opinion.

Think about a Kifaru Zulu or ZXR too, very nice packs and I heared there will be some in the sales section shortly :D

I've got a karrimor sabre 75 it's quite comfortable. At the moment it's away being modifies with a couple of water bottle pouches on the front.

I own the EI aiii pack in RG. It is extremely comfortable and you can easily strap a sleeping bag to the bottom of the bag using the allotted straps. This pack has plenty of molle real- estate to put basically anything you could of on it. It is very hard to find it in RG these days. I bought mine in March 2012 I believe. Great pack, plenty of room, solid construction.
