Arctic Rucksack Modified to be worn without external frame.

I'd say a civvy mod. Too crude to be a service modification. Most Royal Marines I have spoken to hated the arctic rucksack. Used in the Falklands war but there were far better options available post 1982.

Most of these arctic rucksacks were fitted with new frames around 1983, a bit sturdier than the original type. The bottom of the rucksack also attached in a slightly different way.

They were still crap even when modified! The one you show seems to have mismatched shoulder straps too...the left hand one is the original version the right hand strap is from the GS Bergen.

 

cheers
