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".

      Spacious, Comfortable.

      Great pack for extended time out. Durable, and the buckle is awesome. Not the usual clip that might eventually wear out. Locks up tight and smart.

      Sting

      I’ve owned one (bought new, sold in America as the “Saracen”). It was the last backpack I needed to buy. Everything on these is built like a tank. Mine has been to the Tetons, Isle Royal, and dozens of lesser destinations. It has never had a failing. My only complaint is inadequate padding at the kidneys, but this was easily solved with the kidney pad off another Lowe Alpine pack, some Velcro, a needle, and thread.

      Very nice

      DPM looks good, comfy and holds a lot. Somebody craftier than I could figure out a way to put those little side pockets to work as a poor man’s flatpack on a JPC or something
