Well, bought the side pockets for my Sabre and got a yoke chucked in . So far so good. Attaching the side pockets to the Sabre - easy peasy.

Attaching the yoke to the side pockets :confused: :confused: :dunno: :dunno: :dunno: No idea.

Can anyone show me a picture of how it's done please?

Heers hoping

Hi Red

Been a while since i've done this but here goes......

Zip the 2 pockets together
At the top of the yoke there should be 2 male snap connecters
Snap these into the two female connectors either side of the zips
Again do the same to the bottom of the pouches
Then my pouches had 2 little straps on the bottom, looks like you could attach a kip mat or something similar.
Unsnap these and they connect to the front straps to complete the daysack.
I think there was a longer strap that went round the middle, i used to feed these round the back to hold both pouches in place and stop them banging around.

I think thats right i always found my daysack a little too tight under the arms but i am quite a big bloke

No pictures sorry as i am at work at the moment, but if you are having any more problems let me now and i'll dig mine out and do some piccies for you.

Hope that helps a bit :confused:

I know there's a good pic around somewhere, but I'm buggered if I can remember where...

Anyway. Zip the two side pockets together side-by-side. Attach the top buckles (two on each pouch) to the two corresponding clips on the top of the yoke. Thread the waist strap through the loops on the back of the pouches. Attach the inside lower buckle on each pouch to the corresponding clip at the base of the yoke. Finally, attach one end of an extension strap (you do have two extension straps, don't you?) to the buckle on the front shoulder of the yoke, and the other end to the spare outer buckle on a pouch. Do this so that the adjustable end of the strap is attached to the yoke.

Clear as mud, I'm sure... I may have some of the terminology a bit wrong too. ;)

Then you have a main webbing yoke rather than an daysack yoke. They are not the same. You want to get yourself the right yoke rather than mess about trying to convert one into the other.

If you want rid of that yoke, I could perhaps be persuased... ;) I'm toying with a Rappelby-style webbing set, and could probably use one.

I'll dig mine out tonight and post a photo or two on here so you know where they should go.....


......in fact never mind as i mentioned before i don't get on with mine and my bergan is well and truly shafted after many years of faithful service.
PM me your address and i'll send you mine, It's from SASS a bit of a custom job.

Nice to be able to help you for a change after all the help you gave me with knife polishing! :D

Red, when you have the correct yoke, you will be able to attach your side pouches either as a double or as a single. so you can be carrying either ten or twenty litres.

I normally have the yoke attached to one of my side pouches even when it is attached to the Sabre 45, it works as a handy grab bag.

I'll put some pictures up later on of how it is configured if you wish:)

That's a point actually - I've never been happy with my single pouch arrangement. How are you doing that? Are you just not connecting the lower clips to the yoke?

Lol well thanks Peter, Martin, Dunc and Leon.

Dunc - you win the PLCE yoke (only fair since Martin is sending me a proper one!)

Large glasses of mead all round I feel
