LK70 Swedish Army Rucksack
The Swedish Army LK70 rucksack is basically a larger version of the popular LK35. A external frame pack of, surprise surprise, 70 litres capacity!!
I recently took one of the excellent sacks with me to Sweden for a weeks hiking and winter survival training and I have to say it is a excellent sack. Mine was a cheap surplus graded one off ebay but even so the whole rucksack is rugged and built to take some hard work - the waist built is leather and the lid straps are also leather which is a good feature on packs being used in cold climates, although straps on mine were a bit stretched and frayed they still performed well.
The large external rear pocket is ideal for your stove, fuel and food while the two side pockets are long but aren't that large - in mine I carried wet weather gear on the left and my laavu on the right. the lid has a small external pocket ideal for easy access items such as a first aid kit. There is also a larger lid pocket on the inside while is where I store my wash kit, maps etc.
Overall a excellent sack - I would love to get myself a new one so if anyone knows where I can get one let me know!
But even graded for less than £30 I don't think you will find a better - more comfortable sack! Really is a pleasure to use and best of all no sweaty back!
