Pro-Force Trooper & Forces Rucksacks – Review


Rucksacks have evolved greatly over the last few decades with each new design producing a little adjustment here and there catering for and meeting the needs of the specific user. Highlander Pro-Force rucksacks are no exception to this development having been through many designs, branding & re-branding of their unique range to the present up to date models which are highly reliable, strong, durable and not over priced for a quality piece of equipment.

The Pro-Force Forces range bags have come a long way from the original 600 denier nylon fabrics to using their own XTP 900DPU fabric and now the latest to be introduced across the range the new upgraded 1000D XTP fabric giving enhanced durability from abrasion, tears and scuffs along with the durable pu coating for water repellency, combined with their Airmesh fabric on the back pads and shoulder straps providing maximum comfort  whilst highly durable and allowing ample air circulation and breathability.

The standard features across the range include:-

1000D XTP polyester fabric

Airmesh + ABS back system

Side pockets

Front pocket (Larger models only)

Lid compartment

10 Gauge self repair zips

Waterproof rip-stop raincover contained in lid compartment

Available in varying colours, however Olive green and their British camo which is surprisingly good and popular with all levels of military from cadets, T.A to serving personnel. Subtle variations across the range can occur depending on size, however you`ll find everything you need on each model, be it 33Ltr for daysack use or the larger 66 or 88 Ltr for deployment or longer tours.

Having sold the Forces range for several years they have been very competitively priced and highly recommendable, Pro-Force have now introduced an intermediate stripped down version which still offers quality with varying useful features.

Welcome the new Pro-Force Trooper rucksack range, exception quality and value perfect for those on more of a budget or cadets just starting out. The range includes 25, 45, 65 & 85Ltr sizes all available in the British camouflage which is an extremely good pattern when considering the attempts by varying companies over the years to achieve a good likeness.
