Swedish Bergam Pack With Frame

Imitated by many – but never surpassed – this is the original M39 Swedish Army Backpack. Sweden maintained a neutral position during WWII but that didn’t stop them from increasing their military strength to over 600,000 during the height of the war. Fielding a force of this size called for a ruck of uncomplicated design that could handle abuse and maintain functionality during the harsh Swedish winter. Created in 1939 (hence the M39 designation) this pack was designed to fit a multitude of needs for a foot-mobile infantryman. Lightweight and compact the M39 rucksack can carry over 40 liters (2440 cubic inches) of gear and still be able to carry a sleeping system and entrenching tool on the exterior of the ruck. The external steel frame and harness leather straps provide serious strength and durability while remaining surprisingly light. The design was fielded by the Swedish military into the 1960's and highly sought after today by minimalists and vintage collectors everywhere.
