If your going to put that heavy arse radio in there you may want to stenghen the bottom of the ruck wear one layer has worn away just an idea should be fine with lighter gear !

Should be able to then. SOG style, PRC 25 in the main body, antenna and handset come out from under the flap.
Still room for foodstuffs too.How about this, would you mind bringing it to our next event where I can try to fit it in, then if it's all kosher I'll taker her there and then?

Stevie,
Re the ARVN ruck and a prick 25, i've put one in along with my loadout of gear,, it's tight but it'll fit ok, all depends on how much other stuff you need to put in, in my ruck i had, a spare uniform,   2 poncho's and 1 liner, 2 pairs of socks, claymore mine and clacker etc in one of the pockets, food in the other pocket, so as you can see, you can get a few things in, just pack it in nice and tight. but that was a recon loadout, you can only try it out and see how you go, hope that helps stevie, cheers mate,
 
Chris.

I'm going for more of a recon loadout myself, for my Spotter get-up. Thanks for the info, it's going to come in handy!
