London Bridge Berghoss Just found this one-off London Bridge concept military pack. Don't think the project ever got beyond this prototype. It's their take on the Rocket Pack, a British army design, patterned after the famous Bergen. They were going to call it the "Berghoss" -- a long range mission pack roughly the same capacity as a large Alice, same concept only more modern. It came without any suspension and was set-up for internal stays. Having great respect for the Alice packs, my first mod was to attach a padded shoulder slot for a DEI frame. I broke my last DEI frame and they gave me a new one, upgraded for the USMC. They nailed the mods and it is an awesome design, I need a frame because of back issues. Next mod was to put on CP Gear shoulder straps with Tactical Tailor pouches for small items. Next mod was to remove the zipper attachments for the side pouches. They are on permanently now, and the pass-through slot still allows long items to slide behind the pouches. Next upgrade is CP Gear hip suspension which was made to go on the DEI frames used by Canadian military. I found out the Kifaru pouch also fits in the slots on the frame. Next upgrade was to attach two Kifaru long pouches to the hip belt. I fold them in half and they will still hold a Heavy Cover canteen kit. When extended down, they are similar to a military drop leg pouch. I didn't like the high lid and extra storage on top. The Alice concept of "nothing above the shoulders" is best for off trail bushwacking and lying prone. So I lowered the lid flat and added lining for map or poncho storage. Here's the finished project. After the take-offs and the mods & upgrades, it tips the scales at 9.5 lbs. Not exactly ultra-light but it will do anything and take a beating. Hope you like it !
