Review: I recently bought one of these bergans and am extremely happy with it so thought I'd put up a bit of a review of the bergan itself and also the buying experience.

So, first of all the bergan. I've got the say the one I recieved is in absolutely fantastic condition so really can't fault Becketts on their grading (if anything saying it is grade 1 is doing it a dis-service!) Now there are a few very light scuff marks on the back and their is the name and number of the previous owner on the name patch, but I really couldn't care less about these. First of all, I didn't buy this to look pretty, I bought it because I needed something sturdy to move a load of stuff around in, and if anything it will only get more scuffed from my use. Heck, according to the label inside my bag is 10 years old, so I would expect it to have a bit of wear. Now, the name and number of the soldier I think actually add something to this. It's quite nice to imagine who this guy was and what he, and this bergan, went through out in the field. So I'd actually be disappointed if this wasn't there as I think it adds a nice bit of history, and a used item should never try to hide the fact that it has been previously used.

The important thing for me is that the bergan is of sound construction and all the zips and fasteners are present and working, and on this front it is in absolutely fantastic condition. Not even so much as a bit of frayed stitching, so this bergan is definitely going to give me many many years of good service.

The side pouches that came with mine were in equally fantastic condition (and they are even older than the bergan itself, so that just goes to show how rugged these things are!)

Now, a quick note about Becketts: I placed my order via the website on the Wednesday night. Becketts posted it Thursday morning for next day delivery and I recieved it on the Friday. Really cannot do anything but praise this sort of service - and as an aside, the delivery charge was incredibly low - what a bonus! I will definitely be placing more orders here without a doubt.

Fantastic quality gear, with grading that you can certainly trust topped off by next day delivery...thank you very much Becketts!
