A type of rucksack supported by a frame, used by the military.
- The trend towards utility has continued, and most modern armed forces now use rucksack-type packs - ‘bergens’ - and pouches made of light and robust man-made fabrics.
- The best solution is to carry a dark coloured plastic bag, into which you can put refuse, and which you can store in an outside pouch on your bergen.
- Soldiers are expected to increase their weight in their bergens and distances will also become greater.
