    Is it Stridssäck 2000 (Combat Pack 2000) you are referring to? If so, have a look here: https://www.soldf.com/ss2000.html
    If google translate acts up, give me a shout and I'll try to help out.

    Weight: 1.3 kg
    Total volume: 35 liter
    Volume, top lid: 2.5 liter

    I haven't used it myself, btw.

    Ahh...That one, I still use.

    A bag with shouldestraps and a smallish pocket in the lid. Nothing fancy. Robust.
    What dimenstions were you interested in? Will have to check later this evening, though.

    Height width and depth. I love my lk35 but as a day pack it's too big.
    Im looking at mounting one of these day packs to my spare frame as I have found it all but stops my sweaty back problem.

    You can find them with both bare carrying straps and with padded ones.

    I love these sacks! :)

    They're called "uppdragssäck" or "mission bag".

    Typically they would be loaded with ammo, explosievs or other equipment
    when the solders went out on a mission. Transporting the stuff from base
    to the target area. And mostly used by Ranger regiments.

    They were genuine issued, but don't appear in any instructional books from
    the time as far as I know and I have never seen any sacred MOD issue number
    for these sacks.

    It may not have been the one that the original poster was after but it looks to be a really nice pack. Do you have any further information about it - who makes it? Are they easy to get hold of? - that sort of thing.
