Due to the fact it was not released in UK Armed Forces MTP we took it upon ourselves to find a MOD manufacturer whom could copy the design of the Dutch Army Lowe Alpine Saracen and its features to spec and thus make with genuine MTP fabric! This rucksack is as good as they come, suitable for situations where poor quality items could mean serious failure, we’ve checked the quality to ensure you are getting top stuff.
This is a direct reproduction of the Lowe Alpine Saracen in MTP it is NOT endorsed or made by Lowe Alpine
1000D MTP Fabric, IRR (Infrared Resistant), DWR (Durable Water Repellant) and comes with anti-bacterial coating”.
A fully modern, well designed rucksack for an unbeatable price – basically the same thing that has visited the Dutch army. 100 + 20 = 120 litres carrying capacity and adjustable back.
Modern stuff through and through.
