These Original South African 83 Pattern Large Backpacks live up to their name! Made with a strong, durable, water resistant Cordura Nylon, you can be sure that this bag can handle the toughest terrain.

A favourite with the 32 Battalion and SADF Parabats, these Nutria brown backpacks also feature padded straps, back, and waist belt. There is a top compartment which is great for lighter items such as clothing, a bottom compartment ideal for heavier items like footwear, and four side pockets for smaller items like mess tins and canteens. The rucksack was designed to wear with the P83 Chest Rig and P83 Battle Jacket.
