The Karrimor SF Sabre 75 Rucksack is a superb outdoor pack designed for heavy use in demanding conditions. With crampon loops and ice axe holders, the Sabre 75 was originally designed for mountaineering, but has been adopted heavily for camping and Bushcraft use. The Sabre 75 is a reliable and durable load carriage system which has been tried-and-tested by Ray Mears for well over a decade.

The Sabre 75 features a single main compartment with a capacity of 75 litres. Additional storage space can be added by attaching the Karrimor Side Pockets or other PLCE-compatible accessories.

This rucksack utilises a removable F-Format frame, which can be shaped to fit the wearers back. The S-shaped shoulder harness conforms to the user's torso which, along with the hip belt and sternum strap, helps you to maintain your balance while on the move.

A supremely durable 1000 Denier Nylon is used for the vast majority of the pack, offering long-lasting strength. This is then given a silicone/PU elastomer coating for improved tear strength, and finally a DWR finish for better water repellency.

Sewn ventilation channels, a Coolmesh-covered hip belt and lumbar and scapula pads help to wick away perspiration maintaining comfort, thereby increasing your effectiveness over prolonged periods of exertion.

  Really comfortable large rucksack, which with the additional side pockets and PLCE yoke makes an excellent modular pack for multi-day adventures. The hidden flat pocket on the front which I didn’t see mentioned in the description takes an SFA keeping it safe and out of the public eye, but still easy to get at for use.

  High quality kit, with tough fabric and plenty of compression to keep it stable on your back. If you buy the optional side pockets, there is more carrying capacity than you are ever likely to need on an expedition.

  More than impressed with this item and the speed it arrived. the bag reflects the price and I'm sure I'll perish before this bag does. Thank You to the Ray Mears team!

  Purchased for gold D of E after repeated failures from a less expensive high-street brand, The Karrimor SF is in a different league for quality, comfort and adaptability. Flawless performance on its first expedition.

  A nice rucksack, good functions, good comfort for carrying my equipment. I can also see a lot of products to attach to this Rucksack, they have specific purposes for each day and mission in the Forrest.

  This bag is excellent. All the features are listed in the description, and there are plenty of reviews on YouTube singing it's praises, so all I'll add is that, compared to smaller bags with less padding, this can happily carry a double sleeping bag, single bag, 3-man tent, trangia, wash kit, forest axe, couple of knives, compass, med kit, water, cook-set, and two air-mats easily and still somehow feel manageable. The padding is fantastic and the bag is endlessly adjustable for comfort. Yet to take it out and check durability, but everything fits that I've had to share between two bags and a trolley when camping in the past, which will make carrying the kids when they get tired a whole lot easier. You can get a family camping trip in this bag, I did need the side-pockets for that, though. I think without these pockets it would be a great solo-camping/bushcraft bag, but in all honesty, I'd carry a lot less if it was just me, and take a smaller bag. It would be great for multi-night solo excursions, carrying food etc, for a comfortable, longer trip. Could live out of this thing. Thanks for a great price on a great bag!

  After so much trial and error with rucksacks this is the best I have ever used. Worth every penny. Added the Side Pockets which I would say is a must and even bought my wife one with side pockets. So comfortable under heavy load and I can get all my kit in wherever I get sent. Love it.
