Colour Name: CedarSize: Size 2
I've had my Vulcan for 14 years now and it's still going strong.
The back support system is extremely comfortable for long periods carrying heavy (25+kg) loads.

I've had a couple of the external straps tear off when they got caught in an airline baggage hold. Sent it back to Berghaus and they just repaired it - was a few years ago but I don't think they charged me. Be sure to tie the straps down by rolling up the excess with duck tape or similar to avoid this. Apart from these minor issues it's extremely tough and I've given it all sorts of abuse with no problems.

Make sure you get the correct size (the size guide is on the Berghaus website) as one that's too big or small won't transfer weight to your hips effectively and you won't get the benefit of the load being distributed comfortably. Difficult when buying online - if you do get a chance to try one out make sure you load it up so it's heavy rather than just use the shop lightweight packing - the way it sits changes a lot when carrying a big weight.

It's certainly not cheap but if you're walking any distance with any sort of load it's a bit of kit you will depend on over the years. Thoroughly recommended.

This thing is built to last (main reason why its loved by british military) and can hold more gear than you'l ever need. The back system is very comfy and offers good support with its metal frame. Very light as well. If your a student off on a gap year or someone who just spends long periods away from home, do yourself a favour and get this bag.

Taken over to Aus' as a gift to replace an earlier one that was vandalised during a break-in. He LOVED this one and within minutes of our arrival had it unpacked, stuffed full of weights and on his back. He uses it for army-style training yomps, etc, as well as real backpacking and there was rarely a day this wasn't in use. Excellent product. Very high quality. Apparently the Australian Army's backpack of choice. Great supplier here in the UK had this to us in record breaking time.

its a really rugged tough bit of kit, feels like its indestructable and perfect for my son to go backpacking on his year out after uni, very big and comfortable with waterproof like backing on the inside, huge buckles and straps and versatile too as the two outside compartments zip off and zip together to create a 20 litre smaller backpack, i recommend this to anyone and everyone, look no further.

Colour Name: CedarSize: Size 4 Verified Purchase
Really good piece of kit. Not as much room in the pouches as i was expecting. They seem to be narrow.
Other than that i like it. Very comfortable and the design distributes the weight nice and puts a lot of the
lifting to the hip with the waist strap rather then the shoulders. Good for taking pressure of the spine.
I think i will be keeping this one for a long time.

Colour Name: CedarSize: Size 4 Verified Purchase
Probably not much point commenting on a Vulcan rucksack, everyone knows there are super robust, carry heavy loads effectively and for that reason are often used in a military capacity. If your looking for a lightweight trekking sack this will probably be too big and heavy. I can say that the item came very promptly and most importantly was the size I had asked for.

the best Bergen I have ever owned it does everything you could ever want it to end more!! this is an excellent price are you looking to pay this for just the bag excluding the two side pouches from a millitary store. extremely strong very comfortable holds everything you could imagine you need to take when you go camping. I like the way you can take one side pouch of use that as a day bag Or you can zip the two side pouches together and use them as a slightly larger day back. You can also zip the zips where the side pouches should be together to turn the main Bergen into a slightly smaller Bergen, good for 1 overnight stay.

I 100 percent highly recommend this excellent bag. I can imagine I'll be passing this down to my children to come as it is so strong.
