In many situations more visibility means better survivability, like amongst urban traffic or when hunting (conversely, probably not during the Italian hunting season). Around here the weather is usually crappy too. Thus, a perfect accessory for anyone wearing a backpack is a rain cover for it.

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.

Flag of Japan, 150 x 90 cm

100% polyester.

A small, brown canvas or linen backpack from Czechoslovakia. These are probably made in the earlier part of the Cold War, copied almost directly from the German World War 2 era rucksack. Actually a pretty nice piece, especially considering the price!

Czechoslovakia kept the old tradition of copying western (especially German) stuff alive even under red pressure. The overall design looks very familiar to anyone who knows their Wehrmacht kit, most obviously the attachment system is reversed: rings on the backpack, hooks on the Y-harness.

Features

Volume maybe 20 litres, with two smaller outer pockets. No frame on this, but you can slide in a piece of a foam mat in the internal pocket for support.

The included Y-harness is designed to keep your beltkit up, but this feature is redundant for most users. A neat trick is to bend the metal hook thingies "shut" if you have no need to take them off. Alternatively you can tie the hooks to the rings with pieces of string. Failing to do this will cause misery everytime you put the pack down and a hook comes undone.

Practical use

Compared to modern rucksacks, this little thing might look a bit archaic, but it's genuine vintage stuff made to military specs so it won't be falling apart anytime soon. If you enjoy modern features and advances in anatomic design, look for something else. For a bit of a crusty person who doesn't give a shit, or if you have a good eye for fashion, this is a must-have.

Used army surplus

Used, but in good serviceable condition. One day these will be gone forever, get yours while still available!

A very rustic rucksack , old model, but it's good for taking some tools for working or a little hike in "vintage condition" for the day . Use of a piece of the BW carpet , for the back , and use the BW shoulder straps ... and all is ok !! A good base for some upgrades !

it feels rustic and very vintage, but the straps are kinda naff. its a pain to figure out where all the right straps go, and the strap have a habit of falling off when you put it down as it isn't secured to the rucksack securely which is a pain. im going to try and secure them properly to the rucksack permanently with string or bending the metal as i will not be taking it off. it comes with a string to close the top of the opening, but i had to re-thread it though the holes. not in great condition, dont expect anything in too good condition.

Backpack looks nice, is lightweight and holds enough for about a days easy hiking. The suspenders / shoulder straps are an absolute disaster. They fit the pack so badly I'm questioning whether they are actually made for carrying the pack without being attached to your pants... Still though, love the pack.

Pienikokoinen, jos se ei vielä tullut selväksi. Repussa leima: miekat ja "86", oletan siis 31-vuotiaan tuotteen olevan kyseessä. Hirvitys jonka itse sain, on kunnoltaan hyvä, valjaat sen sijaan eivät. Varsinkin olkainten alaosat on tosi kulahtaneet. Näkemällä vaivaa niistä tosin saa siedettävämmät. Reppu haisee vahvasti varastolle, niin kuin moni ylijäämäkama. Kolme tähteä tulee jo pelkästä retroudesta ja hei, maksaa vain kympin. Kyllähän tässä kamat kantaa.

Durable and cool looking, you can't beat it especially for the price. Biggest tip I can give is get rid of the Y straps and replace them with a set of ALICE shoulder straps!

Mine were junk. Straps had rusted hardware and rotting leather. Bags were worn so thin I poked my finger through spots that didn't already have a hole. Varusteleka has many great surplus items, but this isn't one of them.
