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 and now we got the rucksack. Maybe one day we’ll have both at the same time. In case we only get the smaller one next time, too, you should buy this rucksack now though.

This is pretty similar in outlook to the US Alice pack except that it doesn’t have any kind of a frame. The carrying straps are quite minimally padded and there is no hip belt. Well, too much padding screws up your shooting, and ergonomics and other comfort nonsense are devil’s inventions to the vintage folks anyway. The straps are attached to the rucksack with metal hooks. In case you don’t like fast detachability, you can bend them properly shut if you want.

The large main compartment has a separate big pocket 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 made at different times here, so the colors and small details can vary a bit. They are made of Nylon.

Condition

Used Austrian military surplus. These have been used with varied intensity. So, they can have some surface rust on metal bits, small stains, a little bit frayed straps, and other typical signs of use. These are in serviceable condition though.

My pack, dated 1984, would pass for new/ unissued were it not for the signs of having been used on the metal parts - places where the black paint was worn off and some minor surface in couple of places. The yoke is suspect is older, and does show it has seen use, however it is in great condition for its' age. The add photos show off the pack quite well. My is an old school, dark OD green.
If you want an ALICE style rucksack, I would recommend getting one NOW, before they are sold out. It's great buy for the money.
