Dutch Long Range "Sting" Patrol Pack

Designed by Lowe Alpine and improved by ARWY, this Long Range "Sting" Patrol Pack is the big brother to our Dutch "Landmacht" Assault Pack and successor to the Berghaus Vulcan Rucksack. Sporting an 80-liter capacity between three compartments, a smart design, and quality construction—the only mistake the Dutch made with these packs was in letting them go.

Luckily for you, between the padded shoulder straps, back pads, and waist belt, once you've got one on it's not going anywhere. This pack is ready to go the distance—and an innovative suspension system, emphasizing both ergonomics and comfort, ensures you'll get there. Adjustments can be made along the back so that the waist belt and shoulder straps sit properly regardless of your height, guaranteeing a snug fit and tailor-made feel.

Made out of Cordura material, the pack's both sturdy and waterproof. The main compartment holds 60 liters, and like the "Landmacht" rucksack there's a document pocket tucked inside the elastic lid. There's also a pouch for a hydration bladder with a right-side passthrough. The bag's internal metal frame means it'll stay firm against your back, no matter how much kit you stuff inside.

What's more, the lid has an external cargo pocket as well as fasteners to affix gear, or even something like a solar panel for longer excursions, and the shoulder pads have clips for holding the hydration tube, or for attaching small items like a compass. There's also MOLLE webbing on the outside of the pack (front, sides, and bottom), allowing you to add even more storage, as well as velcro on the external straps to help organize the slack.

Along the sides are two smaller zip-on bags, each adding 10 liters per pouch. (Each holds about 20 standard STANAG mags each.) Each pouch has a stowable padded strap, and the pair can be zipped together once to form a small assault pack, zipped together twice to form a duffle bag, or relocated to the back or bottom of the bag using the MOLLE straps/clip. If you've got compressible gear, put your tent in one bag and your sleeping bag in the other to keep your main compartment clear.

The backpacks come in two types, sorted by the buckle on the waist strap. ARWY's first generation of bags were almost identical copies of Lowe Alpine's original "Sting" design, complete with your standard fast-release buckle. Later iterations made slight improvements, swapping that out for the "Berghaus buckle", similar in design to the one seen on the SADF Pattern 83 "Grootsak".

      Help me

      I was threatened to be wacked for not doing this in time please you gotta help me they're almost he-

      Good stuff. Lots of straps, lots of adjustments. Took it on a 17 mile backpacking trip. Altogether gear weighed probably 40 maybe 50 pounds. Yeah, my shoulders were a little sore, as well as a few spots on my hips where the pack straps in good, but those were the least of my worries after rucking through rugged mountain terrain. This stuff is good, waterproof material. I like it's versatility and functionality. Will enjoy it for year to come! Ps. Photo is just of auxiliary packs that strap to the side, but can be used as an individual backpack.

      great pack especially for the price

      it's a great pack and priced just right my one gripe is that the padding on the hip belt is a bit lackluster. the two internal frame bars are slightly different shapes although this is not noticeable at all while wearing the pack

      GLORIOUS BAG

      Let's start with the unboxing; it came in a regular cardboard box, flattened (but not compressed). Opening it gave me the best rucksack I've ever seen and felt. Currently owning a desert war/war on terrorism era U.S. ALICE pack, the sting sack is better by a SIGNIFICANT margin. I ordered a serviceable condition bag, expecting heavily faded camo and missing zippers. Looking at the sack i would have said it was in great condition. Barely any fading, no missing or broken zippers, zero rips/tears, nametags etc. Of course there is enough space to steal an entire Latino family, with 80 liters at your disposal. By far the best sack for the price. Cannot recommend it enough (assuming you have a use for 80L. If you need a smaller bag I highly recommend the wz93 rucksack, also sold here) [Reference for pictures: I'm a 5'6" manlit and it fits me just fine]
