Särmä cargo trousers

Särmä cargo trousers

36.99 USD

Lightweight, practical and comfy polycotton ripstop trousers with an excellent cut. Because we had these made in huge volumes, the end price could be kept very reasonable.

German efficiency and practicality at its best. These medium-sized rucksacks are meant to carry everything that a German soldier needs in the field. A very affordable pack for what it is.

In short, a good smaller rucksack for situations where a huge pack is simply too much and a daysack too small, like a classic overnighter or a couple of days hike. The volume of this one is about 65 litres.

Besides the main compartment, this ruck has several others: bottom of the pack has a separate compartment for rainwear, which is closed with a zipper and snap buckles. The two side pockets are quite large and are only stitched on from the sides. This has been done so that other equipment, e.g. an axe or a shovel, can be stuffed in behind the pocket. The web loops on the front are meant for a rifle, but can fit skis for instance (you'll have to come up with suitable straps yourself). The flap is large and has a pocket on top of it, and straps for a sleeping bag.

Although this pack does not have a frame, the Bundeswehr issue folding sleeping mat slips into a separate compartment and keeps the pack rigid and makes it really comfortable to carry. This also eliminates the need to carry a traditional roll-mat outside the pack, essentially allowing more stuff to be strapped on if needed. Sleeping mats sold separately when available. An alternative option is to secure a traditional roll mat to the rifle attachment points and use the folding mat pouch for something else, like a DIY stiffener and a hydration bladder.

Made of tough and durable cordura.

German army surplus

Used, but in good serviceable condition. Of course the signs of use are there along with the possible well made repair, but these are good to go.

Reviews of BW combat rucksack

My rucksack, which has seen the freezing Finnish winter and the African savannah, has passed the tightest security inspections in London and has fulfilled this experienced traveller's needs. There are multiples pouches in this rucksack (at least seven) which can hold a traveller's most important items. The two large side pockets are easy to use and can easily fit a litre-sized bottle each. There are plenty of straps, so those of you that love that sort of thing will love packing this ruck.

This used rucksack smells like a used rucksack. It brilliantly served as the only storage solution for a travel guide in a group of 13, and it's highly recommended for backpackers going to Asia.

A major plus is that this ruck is carry-on-sized, so going abroad to any airport is fast and easy!

Traveller to Mozambique

I used the Bundeswehr rucksack on our march and I can once again say that it is suitable for those longer journies. More suitable options are available for scouting competitions, marches, etc. The BW rucksack's features are listed in detail on Varusteleka's website, and the only downsides I have experienced, after a few years of use, are a ruined zipper pull and a slipper shoulder strap adjuster when soaked, covered in sand, tears, failure, etc.

The BW rucksack is suitable for a two to three day journey, but I also like to use it when hunting when I'm dragging a bit of gear along. I once took the ruck on a week-long hike in Lemmnjoki and I discovered that it wasn't really suited for such a long journey. Even though I had the ground mat for extra back support, a ruck weighing more than 25 kilos, including a tent, Trangia, and sleeping bag, began to be too much for me.

Those of you with many hobbies need lots of backpacks and rucksacks for every occasion, and this is a good addition to your arsenal.

Hyvä pikku rinkka. Saksassa kaupunkilomalla kantoi 5 päivän tarpeet hyvin, ainoa miinus tulee olkahihnoista jotka aiheuttivat hieman tuskaa harteille kun täyttä reppua kantoi. Kuvista poiketen mukana tuli myös rintaremmi.

Muuten noin niin hyvät taskut ja säädöt, otan kyllä seuraavalle reissullekin mukaan. Tällä ei tavitse lentökentällä kuin kävellä sisään ja ulos, ei turhia odotteluja!

Jos haluaa naurattaa Berliinin poliiseja, kannattaa tämä olla selässä terveisin kokemusta on.

The description says serviceable, but the pack is practically brand new. More robust then expected. Perfect size for 3-5 days. I don't think you can beat this ruck for the price. Shipping to Florida, US, only took 6 business days and is incredibly reasonable at less than $10.00. Highly impressed with the speed of service and the quality of the product all at a reasonable price. Make sure you get the sleeping mat, it's a necessity.

This is a great pack for weekend backpacking trips. It can fit two days worth of gear quite easily, I even managed to rig a daypack to the straps for longer trips. This pack has a bunch of well thought out pockets and straps, the rifle holder for instance fits my fly fishing rod like it was meant to be. Asides from one well excecuted and awesome looking repair it even looked new!

As far as comfort is concerned the pack has adequate strap adjustments for people of all sizes. The shoulder pads are fine for the thirty pounds or so I usually pack but the waist strap leaves a little to be desired. Some sort of back stiffener is a necessity! Whether it is a BW mat or some plywood and a bladder you will want something, otherwise it's just a really cool duffel bag.

Bombproof quality, preferably needs a back foam stiffener to hold it up but will do on its own. Can't say the same for the comfort which wasn't as bombproof with short shoulder straps and 32 lbs in it, can't see myself carrying it all day that weight. I added a chest strap so that help a tiny bit. The lack of an actual hip belt was probably a big factor, the one it has is more like a strap to stop it from swaying. In comparison my large Alice pack I can carry 50+ lbs all day without the same discomfort. Different people might have different experiences. Probably works much better as an oversized day pack with a lighter load or go much lighter if comfort is important to you. Weighs around 3.1 lbs so its good for the lightweight crowd who wants a surplus bag and are used to carrying similar style packs.

The one I got is almost like new. It must have been issued to the cook. This is a great pack you don't even have to add " for the price", but once you do it makes it even better!

Hintaan nähden ihan ok rinkka lyhyemmille reissuille. Tätä pakatessa huomaa, ettei ole kyseessä mikään satalitrainen rinkka, mutta pienellä suunnittelulla saa yhden tai kahden yön vaellusvarusteet pakattua talvikeleihinkin varautuen.

Ainoa ongelma tässä rinkassa on kantomukavuus, varsinkin kun painoa on yli 15kg. Suurin ongelma on lantiovyö, joka ei juuri auta siirtämään painoa lantiolle. Ongelmaa pahentavat suht kapeat olkaimet, joille suurin osa painosta päätyy.
