The Karrimor SF Recon 40 is the smaller partner to the Karrimor SF Commander 45. It shares many of the same design details of this pack but with a totally different opening system, which enables a slightly more flexible way of carrying layers or equipment you may need quickly.

The Karrimor SF Recon 40 is slightly smaller than its bigger brother but at 5 litres less it is not such a drastic difference.
The main change is with the external pocket, which combines a clamshell style opening. It’s like having a smaller pack permanently connected to the main one. The gap between can then be used to store waterproofs while they are drying or a tent fly for example. Above all the advantage being that this can be done without storing the gear internally in the pack.
