It really doesn't get any Czechoslovakier than this. Although the full vinyl appearance of this pack might make you a bit nauseous, we are deemed to defend this contraption in the form of the following list of features.

Glorious features

Build: Made of nylon-reinforced vinyl fabric, which means 100% waterproofness and will not deteriorate over time. Magic! The Y-straps are nylon webbing and helluva strong. Stitches, rivets! Will not break!

Compartments: One large main space with tubular side pockets for the entire height of the pack. Inside the weather flaps are hidden smaller pockets to keep any valuables in.

All the things outside the pack: On the top you'll find a carrying handle and attachment points for gear. The main flap has two different height settings. Carrying straps are adjustable. We believe the narrower fixed straps are meant to be used with the bread bag of the same series. Also, note the place for a nametag.

Ugliness: The hideous appearance has a side benefit, as it does make the contents less desirable in the eyes of thieves. Also makes the bag's owner appear less trustworthy.

The price: Ridiculously cheap.

OK, if it cost €30 it would not get full stars but for the price of a coffee and Danish you get a damn tough sack that is well made and just begging to be added to a good frame, my LK35 frame for instance. With a tolerable bit of faffing about you can add a bit of molle webbing to the sides and make this the old school pack of your dreams. I did and I love it. I bought several and expect to be using it/them until they take my boots away and send me off to the Old Bushcrafters Home.

For the price, unbeatable. There are zero frills with this bag but its tough and dependable just don't expect any of the modern amenities in a more modern bag.

Good looking pack and for the price unbeatable only one question the y-straps have a 3 arm which goes down the back side of the pack and through a loop about 3/4 down the pack it seems award what does it do? is it necessary?

On hyvä ja vedenpitävä.hyvä sateessa.
Laitoin palan makuualustaa selkää vasten repun sisään.
Mahtuu kiitettävän paljon tavaraa reppuun.
Lähes ilmainen reppu

Five stars for quality of construction and function. Can be comfortable to wear if properly loaded. Great for walking to buy groceries or other shopping items. Great for all around use it not hiking more then 9km.

Ihan päteväkapistus kestää veden ja kovaakin kuritusta. Näyttää vaan tosin pirun rumalta mutta hommiin jossa sillä ei ole väliä tämä on ihan täydellinen.

I... well... it's odd, I grant that. However, it's sturdy, simple and not horrible on the shoulders. I'm using a West German folding pad to give it structure and it can carry stuff for 6 km with no complaints but it kinda tends to hug my back which could be a sweaty issue in summer. Also you need to take your time to set it properly, no throwing everything inside and go.
