This sluice which used to be called the JOBE Backpack sluice has been rebranded and is now called the GOLD BUDDY Backpack Sluice.
It Comes complete with 3 folding sections, expanded aluminium and black ribbed carpet under all riffles, a detachable flare, and a section of Deep-V vinyl mat.
The carry strap is removable and extends so that it can be used as a hand or shoulder strap.
The riffles are a Uni-Body construction that are precision laser cut from a single piece of 18 gauge steel and then formed into ultra light, sturdy steel riffles. These are zinc plated for a long rust-free service.
The sluice body is designed to lock in place by tightening two wing nut screws when the sluice is unfolded. From our own experience however, we recommend to take a Phillips screwdriver and a spanner along when heading out. This way you will be able to tighten the normal bolts and screws as well and make the whole sluice more rigid.
When folded up, the small package measures 240 mm wide x 385 mm long x 110 mm deep and it only weighs 3.5 kg.
