    I´ve found a thread with an interesting discussion about rat packs. But I need to know what´s a pack rat, and I don´t think it´s the same. Here´s the context: Dad packs five rat packs and a flask of brandy into his rucksack...
    Can you help me, in english or spanish?

    I´m sorry, charisma. What I need is the opposite, rat pack. I mixed everything up, because I´ve read the thread you cited. I suppose it may be a sort of a bag.

    En ese contexto pienso que pueda ser: Commonwealth military colloquial for Ration Packs

    Que haya empacado en la mochila cinco raciones de comida y una petaca de brandy (?).

    It´s exactly that! Thanks very much! I´m so glad that my question about «rats» was answered by two «cats».
