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 (3965 cu in).

Made of tough and durable cordura.

Traditional for the most part

Besides the main compartment, this ruck has several others: bottom of the pack has a separate compartment for rain wear, and is closed with a zipper and secured with 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 behind the pocket. The web loops on the front are meant for a rifle, but can fit skis or a tripod (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.

Weight-saving with alternative frame

This pack does not have a frame but 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 are sold separately when available. An alternative option is to secure a traditional roll mat on the outside and use the folding mat pouch for something else, like a modest stiffener and a hydration bladder.

German military 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.
