This robust and all-purpose tactical Ratel Mk2 from Helikon is designed for very demanding individuals looking for a roomy and versatile action or Every-Day Carry backpack.

This fully hydration-compatible rucksack comes with a large admin front compartment, which allows fitting all essentials for almost every mission or hike. Furthermore, the pack goes with compression straps equipped with hook-and-loop ties, ergonomically designed and adjustable in length padded shoulder straps, as well as removable waist system, which helps to distribute weight evenly throughout the upper body and ensures comfortable carry even for long periods of time.
