Military rucksacks are designed to be able to cope with very hard and tough conditions, such as war zones and very damp climates. Thanks to their durability and strength military rucksacks have become increasingly popular with civilians who take part in outdoor activities such as hiking, cycling and climbing. British Army Rucksacks are made out of a material called Cordura. Cordura is an incredibly tough and reliable material which helps prevent abrasions, tears and scuffs, making it an ideal material for creating Military Rucksacks. Cadets UK have been supplying the M.O.D. and different armed forces worldwide with specialist military equipment for years now and they have always viewed our outdoor equipment with respect.
