Mil-Tec sewing kit
A small sewing kit with a couple of luxurious features, as well as the basic needle and thread. If you think sewing and knitting is for girls, watch "Demolition Man".
CCCP M43 Gimnasterka shirt, heavily used
Old Soviet Gimnasterka shirts, which soldiers had to enjoy through the latter part of the Great Patriotic War and long after that too! These seemed to be mainly 60's and 70's manufacture, but the model is still the classic M43. Not a very common sight these days. One-off lot!
Swedish prisoner jacket, surplus
Like a modern men's blazer, but even more like an early 20th century worker's jacket, which it sort of is! This jacket is very likely vintage prison wear, definitely Swedish. Garments like this just look better with use and wear. These are in excellent shape, and with a surprisingly good size selection too.
Czech M52 steel helmet, surplus
The Czech helmet is modeled directly after the Soviet SSh40, but with different lining. The chinstrap is either nylon or leather, depends on when the pot is made. All of these are old Cold War surplus.
Soviet Plash-palatka, rain cape/shelter half, surplus
A truly versatile piece of kit. Like most shelter halves used by armies worldwide, the Soviet model bends to a multitude of uses.
Polish combat rucksack, "leopard camo", surplus
The saddest, most terrible attempt to make military gear, ever. Even empty, this bag is horrible to carry, and the suffering just deepens when you pack something into it.
Hungarian mess kit, surplus
Used for decades, this classic aluminium mess kit is just like all the others - not to say it's a bad thing! Very likely Hungarian surplus.
Polish steel helmet, surplus
The Polish vision of a Soviet steel helmet, classic egg shape with leather liner, sometimes the "majestic" and "cool" Polish logo on the forehead finishes of this fine piece.
Brazilian hessian sack for coffee, surplus
A real deal hessian coffee bean sack from Brazil. If you have a coffee shop of some kind, these are perfect stacked in the corner for that rustic touch.
Soviet hairclippers, ylijäämä
These used to be best gifts of industrial revolution - now you could do your home barbering without scissors! Works without electricity and comes with that communist touch of 'I don't care'.
What's like the classic Soviet Veshmeshok sack but even more like a bag of kittens? Well, it must be this Czechoslovakian bag of untold horrors. Made of tough hessian fabric like sandbags, this honest-to-God potatosack is actually like one but with shoulder straps! Made according to the hi-speed low-drag school of thought, this one has no useless features like pockets, dividers or a top flap.
Tired of the modern packs and their pompous amount of dividers, pockets and attachment points for even more stuff? You can say goodbye to that shit with the Czech bag; it's just one space, promoting care in packing and making sure everything can be found in the same place, unless the smallest items fall out from an unfortunate hole in the bottom. Dimensions when flat are modest 50 x 70 cm, or even a few cm less if you're lucky. When filled to the max you'll see why it's not wise to top this up to the brim.
Do you like ventilation? With this pack the contents will get their dosage of fresh air and dry quickly when they get wet. The lack of a flap eases taking the stuff out (now probably riddled with loose hessian threads), and also saves you weight; these are about 500 to 800 grams depending on the individual.
Very safe to travel with!
If the rustic straight-up no-bullshit looks won't manage to steer potential thieves away, the strong smell will do it. Thieves aside, any remaining hipsters will soil their trousers for this pack. Even more exciting is the colour variations, ranging from bleak looking brownish tan to dead forest green, always some wonderfully scruffy shade!
Easy to carry around!
Although simple, the Czech sack has a great deal of things that make life easy. Luxuries like adjustable and narrow hard nylon shoulder straps, naturally with a quick-release system which also tends to show its working charasteristics at whim. This won't happen if you anchor the metal bits to each other with a piece of string. Usually you also get a piece of string at the mouth for secure closure.
Genuine army surplus
We do know these come from the dark depths of history and are made in Czechoslovakia, where some poor souls actually had to use them. Rough even straight from the factory and not very high quality, in used condition these are even more horrible. Get yours now!
