User review of this accessory.
Once in a while a piece of ancillary equipment comes onto the metal detecting market that makes you wonder how you managed without it; and that’s exactly how it is with Garrett’s beautifully engineered backpack. It’s a well thought piece of kit; a fact that becomes evident on closer inspection.

Made from waterproof, heavy-duty ‘cammo’ pattern nylon, measuring 19” x 13.5,” it sports two main zipped compartments with three internal pockets along with an internal spring-clip for safe storage of one’s car keys. The backpack is comfortably padded at the pressure points where it comes into contact with the body and the weight distribution and balance are perfect.

To increase carrying comfort, the adjustable shoulder straps are well padded, and there’s a sternum chest strap with a quick release buckle. The waist strap can easily accommodate a finds pouch, Pro-Pointer, trowel holster, and there’s a utility pouch for a spectacle case or mobile phone. On either side of the backpack are two exterior mesh pockets for drinks bottles. Delving into both zipped main compartments you’ll discover lots of internal pockets and nooks and crannies; some zipped.

The outside of the backpack sports MOLLE-type webbing grid to which ancillary coils (connected to their lower stems) can be are easily and conveniently attached. Lower down, two quick-release straps enable an extra jacket or rain-wear/cape to be carried. Usefully, there is a ‘D’-ring on each shoulder strap to which a bungee cord (supplied) for right or left handed users can be clipped to offset the weight of one’s metal detector.

It’s worth remembering that even on the coldest days in winter, cold food is as nutritious as hot food, though nowhere near as morale boosting. To this end, especially if I’m doing a remote coastal spot, I carry an ultra-lightweight butane gas stove and a small aluminium backpackers’ kettle and a litre of water. Believe me, a mug of hot tea/coffee/Bovril on a bitter winter day is one life’s greatest pleasures…well, almost. I try to limit my all-up weight in the backpack to 71/2-lbs including water, a litre of which weighs one kilogram or 2.2-lbs. Unlike a vacuum flask, water becomes lighter the more it’s used and this is one of the reasons I stay well clear of those stainless steel flasks.

Food usually takes the form of an apple, 4-ozs of cheese, a flapjack bar, and boiled fruit sweets, along with an unbreakable plastic drinking mug inside which, in resealable plastic food bags are a few tea bags, dried milk powder and plastic spoon. I have at times substituted these for one of those packs of self-heating food packs (chilli and rice, curry and rice).

Inside the backpack I carry a basic First Aid kit, penknife, mobile phone (with camera facility), spare ultra-lightweight Garrett ‘Treasure Sound’ headphones, one of those waterproof capes that folds to the size of cigarette pack, toilet paper, spare battery pack, small torch, mini-binoculars, and a tide table.

The £59.95 price tag well reflects the backpack’s high-quality construction and materials.
