This water-resistant Forces 44 Rucksack is tough and strong making it ideal for military, camping and hiking with its practical features.
The rucksack is made from 1000D polyester, which has been triple PU coated to make it exceptionally water-repellent and waterproof for all-weather expeditions.
The large central compartment has a tough nylon lining and a drawcord closure to keep out the rain, dirt and snow. There are also two side pockets and a handy pocket in the lid for keeping smaller essentials close to hand.
There are also additional nylon straps, webbing, stick loops, D-rings and bungee cords for attaching extra kit to the outside. The 10 gauge zips are self-repair and the UTX Flex buckles are strong and easy to use.
Ergonomically designed for enhanced comfort, the back of the bag has been stiffened and features an Airmesh no-sweat funnel system to help improve airflow.

Highlander Forces 44L Rucksack Olive Green
Bought mine a year ago. No signs of wear and tear. Tough, well made, quality materials, very comfortable. So, I've bought this second one for my daughter. I re-did all the googling to find the best budget backpack about and the Highlander Forces 44 was my choice again.
I bought this as a birthday present for my son & he’s very happy with it so therefore so am I.
Comfortable when fully loaded with over 30lb, just what I needed.
I haven't used it yet, but it looks well made and it seems comfortable to carry. The loops on the outside to attach a trekking pole or a small axe are really handy.
Brilliant backpack. Strong, well built and reliable. I'm 6'6 and the backpack fits me perfectly. The adjustments on the shoulder and waist straps are excellent. Can't really fault it.
After spending hours and hours reviewing rucksacks all the effort and weighing up the prices it boiled down to this highland 44l As an ex soldier I had a pretty good idea what I wanted this makes the grade in terms of size and robustness. It's good looking bag.
Very happy with the service and quality of product. Have used the rucksack numerous times and is very comfortable on. Can pack plenty of gear in it. Hardly notice the weight due to the padded hip straps. Well recommended quality piece of kit and great value.
