English term or phrase: bergen
Military, probably kind of a rucksack

English translation:Bergen (rucksack)
Explanation:
I presume Bergen is the brand name for this kind of rucksack and is now used as a noun. I have found references where it is used in conjunction with rucksack and some where it is simply used on its own.
