Austrian "ALICE" Style Rucksack w/o Yoke, Surplus

Price 19.99 USD excluding sales tax

Awesome and dirt cheap Austrian rucksack for DIY folks. The trick is that these don’t come with the carrying yoke. Worry not because a handy person can make the shoulder straps from scratch or modify some existing ones to fit here. This way you’ll get the most high-tech carrying system that the '80s can offer at a very nice price. Perfect for a few days' journeys back in time.

Features

In the golden '80s, Austrians had a carrying system that consisted of a largish rucksack and a smaller bag that could be carried as a front pack or a butt pack. The smaller one could also function as a shoulder bag or a small backpack. We have previously sold the ass bags, then we got the rucksack, and now we ran out of the shoulder straps. Maybe one day, we’ll have the whole set.

This is pretty similar in outlook to the US Alice pack, except that it doesn’t have any kind of a frame. The minimally padded and detachable shoulder straps are not included. The ALICE-style attachment points are, of course, there, and you can pretty easily make new shoulder straps and fix them to those permanently or with hooks.

The large main compartment has a separate compartment closeable with a metal buckle, where you can slide in e.g. the BW sleeping mat. The bottom is rubberized; on some on the outside and on others on the inside. This will prevent all your crap from getting soaked when you set the rucksack on wet moss or grass. The main compartment is closed with a double drawstring and a separate flap. The double drawstring enables you to overpack the rucksack to some extent or make really sure that your stuff won’t fall out.

The rucksack has a small pouch on both sides and a bit bigger pouch on the outside. There are rucksacks from different decades, so the colors and small details can vary a bit. They are all made from Nylon. The weight is c. 1.1 kg (2.4 lbs)

Condition

These have been used with varied intensity. So, they can have some surface rust on metal bits, small stains, slightly frayed straps, and other typical signs of use. These are in perfectly serviceable condition though.

Austrian surplus

Functional, neutral, clean. That's what the Austrian Bundesheer gear is made of. Our Austrian surplus revolves mostly around the Anzug 75 and Anzug 03 clothing systems, but who knows, maybe the "Tarnanzug Neu" will make it's appearance if the Austrians decide to clear the stocks in the future. Get your OD gear while the stocks last.

After the Second World War the Austrian soldier looked like a weird mixture of Allies and Germans; the M1 style helmet and general profile really tried to bring that NATO vibe up, but a lot of the gear and even the dotted camouflage pattern looked surprisingly much like WW2 German issue. In the 70s they took a major leap towards NATO with the introduction of the all-green Anzug 75 clothing and equipment system closely inspired by the American equivalents, finally letting go of the "old stuff". The Anzug 03 brought the game up to date with some changes in effort to modernize the whole thing. Now the Bundesheer is again moving over to camouflage.

If you can, you can, but the results may not be AS good as with a "normal" Alice.
