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!

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!

Compared to modern rucksacks, this little thing might look a bit archaic, but hey, it's genuine retro stuff made to military specs. Means this still wipes the floor with most cheapo civilian packs when it comes to durability. And definitely looks refreshingly different.

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

Comes complete with Y-harness for carrying. The same suspenders keep your beltkit up. The pack looks a lot like the German World War 2 rucksacks, but the attachment to the harness is reversed (loops in the pack, hooks in the Y-suspenders). A nice trick is to bend the metal hook thingies "shut" if you have no need for taking them off. Or alternatively, just anchor them on the loops with, say, pieces of string.

Czech army surplus

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

the main compartment strap was ripped off and re-sewn with a another strap of a different size so it closes for shite. but all in all a sweet bag with a unique look.

Despite its age, this backpack is a must-have for anyone who appreciates vintage military equipment. It has the style of the WW2-era design, while being functional and durable. The one I received is made of a thick khaki canvas which will not wear easily, the only imperfection being a line of discoloration where the fabric had been left folded-presumably in storage-for years. As it is based off the German design, it fits onto my older model Bundeswehr suspenders perfectly. This is a great improvement from the Czech straps supplied, as they do not fall off as easily and they are far more comfortable. Very well suited to hiking, with the two roomy front pockets being able to hold lots of stuff for easy access when on the move. Some reviews note that the buckles which fasten the flaps closed tend to slip a bit and do not stay tightly fastened. I have managed to overcome this by putting the strap through the buckle, and then up looping it again through the top half of the buckle providing the grip necessary to keep the straps from slipping. A change from some of the dodgy eastern bloc surplus which can tend to be poorly manufactured, this backpack seems to be a very well-built product. Overall a great backpack, especially for the price!
