Recently purchased the phenomenal DG16 to replace current issued pack.
I cannot adequately state how necessary and mandatory this pack is, or should be imho…
Yes, I’ve added my own pouches – where and how I want them.
Have boosted from 85lt to approx 110-115lt with pouches.
Pretty much completely set this pack with a full DP1 checklist – bar a couple of full 3lt water bladders…hitting somewhere round 35-40kg.
I thought something was wrong.
I literally couldn’t feel the load, certainly not on my shoulders, and no weird pressure at the hips, or lower back.
Movement and mobility feels natural, obviously limited by load, but comfortable and functional.
I’d started to reach overhead to undo a hanging clip, without thinking, and I was still wearing the pack!
The balance and carriage feels like no other pack I’ve used.
I am keen for some looooong pack marching and field. How often does anyone say that for a pack???
If you’re here now? BUY.
Next on the the list? DG3.
