Rare, good price and well made.
Buy this and fit the pack off the LK35 good internal storage and external space for bedroll.
Comfy as long as your not too wide as the frame can pinch.
I may be getting this wrong, but looking at the pictures it seems that the LK35, LK70, the fabled LK50 and now the Medic LK, are all different canvas work on the same frame.
Is this the case, and if it isn't, are there any images showing the different frames side by side for comparison?
I am led to believe that the frame of the lk70 and the lk35 are different sizes.
Having (at least three) Sam might be in a better position to confirm ... BUT ... I've had a 50* and a 70 and, the frames, back to back were different dimensions. Not that much different but certainly enough to become obvious when viewed side by side. That said it is possible that the size of pack frames could have changed or varied over time or by manufacture . I should have some pictures somewhere ...
* There is some disussion about whether the 50 actually exists. I've seen 35 packs and they're definitely a bit smaller than mine was ~ and it doesn't take much of a dimensional increase to create an additional 15L
Well mine arrived today, dated 1988 and not a mark on it. Don't think it was ever issued. Going to get it loaded up tonight and see how it sits. Next move is to add the sack off the lk35 for a little more internal space.
Cheers Cliff for the heads up.
