An old timey, smelly canvas combat pack, not at all a common sight anymore. A copy of the French Mle. 55 pack, this Belgian version is surprisingly modern for its time, charmingly obsolete today. Get yours now while the stocks last!

With the approximate volume of a shopping bag and provisions to sort your shit too to some extent, this should do pretty well as your daysack or a retro outdoor pack. Inside dimensions 32 x 37 x 12 cm about. The flap covers the whole mouth and has an M-1910 wire hanger attachment, mainly meant for an e-tool. Rough canvas shoulder straps with metal "speed" clips on the bottom. There's also a pair of straps on the bottom for your sleeping bag, kip mat or tent.

We can't stress enough the properity of it all - the canvas is military grade and the stitching is done crudely but effectively. We're not even going to talk about any dry weight thingies, or heaven forbid, what these weigh when wet!

Used army surplus

Old, used, the general look may be salty and there might be some repairs. Still serviceable. These have that classic old Eau de Militär odour, so if you can't live with a musty smell (for a while), look for other options.

Tämä on jännä hipsteri/historioitsija reppu. Todella kestävän oloinen ja ihan kohtuullinen käytettävä. Jännästi taskuja ja kiinnitysmahdollisuuksia. Ei todellakaan mikään moderni ratkaisu, eli käyttömukavuus ei ole paras mahdollinen. Kuvauksen mukaisesti painava ja haisee aivan järkyttävälle. Reppu on nyt mulla ollut jo melkein puoli vuotta enkä ole ihan varma onko sen haju lähtenyt vai olenko vain tottunut siihen.

Reppu itsessään on ok. Tuo siitä lähtevä haju sen sijaan ei ole, aivan hirvee käry jää sisätiloihin leijumaan aika sitkeesti, eikä lähde edes pesussa pois.

Reppu on jees , mutta haju jotain kuin Ranskan Indo-Kiinan sotien aikainen . Yritin tuulettaa muttei auttanut .
Tulee mieleen kun ostin jotain 20 vuotta sitten Libanonilaisia papuja purkissa . Koirakin pelkäsi hajua ja oli räyhäkäs .
Vein repun saunaan ja pesin . Hieno reppu . Kyllä tämä tästä .

Ok, first things first. This thing smells - badly. Very musty and mildew smelling even sickly so. Other than that mine came in really good shape in a nice olive drab color. All the metal and stamps are in great shape, with just a small tear at the top of the shoulder strap on one side being the only problem I saw. Tried soaking it in white vinegar to get the smell out for days and the sucker still wreaks. This bag isn't very practical in this state, as such I can't recommend it.

Outstanding cuality! Very sturdy, although heavy. The smell is strong but vanishes over three weeks or so (it's a pity, as it automatically social- distances face-masking sheeple)

Vaikea tästä valittaa, kun sai just mitä osti. Ehkä vähän paremmankin, kun on vielä vihreä sävyltään. Pienellä lisähinnalla saisi todennäköisesti jotain kevyempää ja mukavampaa, mutta tämän uskoisi ainakin kestävän niin kauan kun sille on tarvetta. Haju on kieltämättä aika pistävä, mutta jos puuvillasäkin tuoksu ei itsessään haittaa niin kyllä ne muut möhnät, mitkä tässä kirjoitellessa kieltämättä yskittää, pikkuhiljaa haihtuu pois.

I've been using this as my daily wear rucksack and I have no real complaints. However, this thing smells and is dirty as fuck, this is a given. If you get it, you will get an extremely sturdy, nigh indestructible bag that can fit a respectable amount of items. However, you MUST wash it. I left it in a detergent bath for a day and the water was straight up black. Gave it a proper wash in the washmachine afterwards and the bag will be in perfectly usable condition. However, get used to the salty smell, it will stay more or less forever.

All in all, a great bag with cool history behind it but requires extra work and care.

Just when I thought I’d bought enough surplus packs from Varusteleka they pull me back in.
