Karrimor SF Sabre 30 Rucksack Review 2014/11/03
I have been a long time user of Karrimor SF packs, they seem to be
the perfect bushcraft pack for me. I am lucky enough to now be
reviewing a very special Sabre 30 in PenCott Badlands! This is our
full review on the Karrimor SF Sabre 30.
First let’s talk about that pattern PenCott Badlands. It’s designed to
be used in semi-arid conditions where the main colour palette is brown
green and dark sand. Badlands has some slight resemblance to digital
camo but doesn’t stand out nearly as much nor does it look blocky in
that digital way, it’s rather interesting to look at and admire the fine
details in the pattern.
The Karrimor SF Sabre 30 itself is the
daysack alternative to one of my favourite and most used packs, the
karrimorsf sabre 45. Unlike the Sabre 45 version the Sabre 30 cannot
take additional side pouches. On the other hand you do gain a little
pocket on each side which you could use for water bottle storage.
One other difference is the lack of an internal lid pocket, you only get
an external one of the Sabre 30.
Using the Karrimor SF Sabre 30 inspires confidence. Being very tough 600
denier material with a silicone pu coating that repels water very well.
These all work together to make the pack very tough, keep the water out
and enable the user to travel confidently. Out of the box you get
strapping organisers. Therefor you don’t have to bother with sniper tape
or plumbers tape to sort out those annoying straps! Good for an urban
gear bag too, for example I use it to carry my indoor climbing gear.
