Hi All,

I may be a dunce for this but I can't figure out how to get this backpack on properly without it not being uncomfortable.
Could someone be nice enough to make me a mini guide would be amazing.

Thank you

Ummmm.... Nonce? You realise that means paedophile right? Do you mean dunce by any chance?

That aside, if you're referring to the 37 pattern small pack then it's a case of adjusting the straps to a length that suits and kind of just muddling about with it until you manage to get it to sit in a way that's the least uncomfortable. It's not a very comfy pack to wear tbh, how you pack it helps too. There's a fair few guides knocking about, should be some on this forum too if you delve deep enough.

The main thing is that the straps need to be tight, and ideally the side straps horizontal. Mine always ends up sagging a bit though as the utility pouches are stuffed with chocolate and BBs instead of 100 rounds of ammo and two Mills bombs:) So not enough weight to balance it.

If you shove part of the gas Cape down the inside, it makes it more comfortable.

You could always wear it as a haversack off your left hand X straps too.
