    Bergen Backpack®? Does ® mean they have trademarked Bergen? It’s a generic term for a backpack and also the name of a city in Norway

    • Lasse says:

      It means that they have a registered trademark for “Bergen Backpack” somewhere in the world. It’s a very common name, so I wouldn’t expect it to mean much.

      And isn’t the propper name Bergan? As in Bergans of Norway? At least ARRSE says that Bergen is just a common mis-spelling of Bergan.

      • Sommerbiwak says:

        Exactly, the term is derived from norwegian Bergans rucksacks, that long ago were bought by the British Army and Navy for the Paras and royal Marines respectively.
