Bulgarian breadbag, surplus
A traditional military breadbag with a very historical appearance. Country of origin Bulgaria, so the production standards were relaxed, if there even were any.
This typical WW1 or WW2 style soldier's shoulder bag is about the size of a supermarket fruit bag and meant to carry this and that. Dimensions about 30 x 30 x 6 cm. Carried with a shoulder strap.
Made of cotton fabric, just the kind of thin but strong stuff many a tent quarter is made of. Lid strap made of leather. Both the fabric and the leather colours vary. No bag is exactly the same, but the cotton colours are always on the grey-green-tan axle.
Used but intact. Bear in mind these are decades old, so they might require cleaning and greasing the leather parts. The seller claimed these to be WW2 era stuff, but go figure. Could well be.

Thus, there was no need for "production standards". The fear of being crushed worked well enough.
PS: and one note for the gnomes. The teutonic devils love to hate "their" bulgarian workers, when the same workers show them how much they work for a given salary. In part, because of the reasons above!

Bag 1: Dark O.D. style green fabric with classic light brown leather, pretty nice condition all around, some rust on the hardware (all of these had some rust on the hardware) the best example I received, I'm giving this to a friend as a gift.
Bag 2: I don't remember much about this bag because I gave it to my friend in the spur of the moment as we unboxed, I believe it was a slightly faded green with brown leather. same condition as Bag 1.
Bag 3: Desert-like darkish tan, brown stiff and dry leather, heavily rusted hardware, though quite intact. This one is obviously in the worst condition, the buckle dongle and strap holes are rusted over, so it's tough to manipulate the hardware. Many stains on the fabric, although it had some cool stamps inside the flap. I'm attempting to restore this one since I have nothing to lose, I think the cleaning is working but I may have accidentally made the leather worse.
Bag 4: Lighter O.D. syle green, light brown leather, rusty but fully intact hardware. Decent condition, seems to have the least stains of the bunch. This was my mail bag, I will also use it to transport pistols to the gun range.

If it's half the price I would say it's a nice buy.
I got two with light olive drab, No.1 has some pen drawing mark. No.2 has no drawing but the hardware is rusty. Both have weird irregular shaped cap leather like they were cut by a toddler, and No.1 has only one pin to keep it there.
You can carry things with them no doubt. But don't expect to have a good classic retro look as I did.
