Features

The main compartment has a 2-way zipper and a compartment with hanging loops for a hydration bladder. A passage for the drinking tube is concealed under the carry handle.

The secondary compartment has a significant volume to it and also features a 2-way zipper. It is unaffected by compression straps, which makes the contents more quickly available.

Finally, there's a third pocket with a slant opening and a regular zipper for small stuff. The pocket extends all the way up so it's not really tiny.

Other features include:

  • PALS-webbing for expanding and customizing
  • Compression straps to make the pack small (doubles as a fail-safe of the main zipper)
  • Ice axe / accessory loops at the bottom
  • Sleeping pad straps
  • Hook-and-loop bases for a name tag and 3" flag patch
  • Padded and ventilated back and shoulder straps

Specs

  • Total volume: 35 litres (2135 cu in)
  • Outer measurements: 48 x 37 x 18 cm (20" x 14.5" x 7")
  • Weight: 1.2 kg (2.65 lbs)
  • Material: PU-coated nylon, 280 g/m2

Dutch army surplus

As the model has a long service life and the manufacturing is high-quality (typically by Arwe), you can't get into trouble with these packs due to the product itself. These were made for serious business and you can expect these to outlast anything you could buy new for this price point or a notch or two above.

Used, but serviceable condition. You might want to wash these before use. Sternum straps and waist belts may be missing. Luckily these can be replaced easily without sewing, using standard webbing and buckles.

P.S. The availability is uncertain, act now!

I've had one of these for a year, to save me from using the awkward bergan side pouches as a daysack on exercises. It's large enough to hold my gore-tex suit, warm kit, 24hr ration, Camelbak, with kneepads and gloves in the smaller compartment when I'm not using them. The coyote tan colour matches well with MTP and most other Multicam based patterns.

Mine has seen a fair bit of abuse, including use as a cushion on stag duty, and has held up nicely.

Update: While the above is still true, there is a slight snag; The shoulder straps are really wide. On occasions where you swing your arms a lot e.g. loaded marches, this can cause chafing around the shoulders. Still, it's a steal at £44; The Camelbak daysacks used by a lot of soldiers are around the £150 mark.

Ei voi kyllä suositella, sen verran kaltoinkohdeltu yksilö sattu tulemaan...

Erinomainen reppu joka kummasti vaikuttaa ulkoisilta mittasuhteiltaan 35 litraa pienemmältä, mutta pystyy imemään sisäänsä järjettömän määrän tavaraa ilman mitään erityisen tarkkaa pakkaamistakin. Omastani puuttui lantiovyö, mutta nappasin sellaisen hieman risasta Särmän assault packista, jonka jälkeen painavienkin kantamusten roudaaminen sujui oikein mukavasti.

Ensimmäinen kappale meni vaihtoon, vaihtokappale tuli tänään 03.08.20.

Parempi, lantioremmi löytyi, vetoketjut ehjät ja kohtuu siisti yksilö. Yksi kompressiohihna poikki mutta korjattu ompelemalla (kiitos vaimo) pari paikkaa ja pienempää ruhjetta löytyy mutta käytetystä kyse joten niihin en puutu. Hyvä ja tukeva selässä ja tilaa omiin tarpeisiin riittävästi. Nyt uskaltaa suositella. Yksilö valmistettu 2019 joten selittää kohtuullisen kunnon.

Päivitys: Hyvä kantaa, on kuin paita päällä. Mikään paikka ei rasitu eikä repun asentoa tarvitse korjailla reissun aikana.

Easily the nastiest piece of gear purchased from Varusteleka. Looks like it was stored in a vat of light oil or grease and it stinks! Washing it a 3rd time, hope it is usable this go around.

Sain varsin hyvän repun. Ehyt, kaikki toimii. Oli myös lantiovyö ja rintaremmi mukana. Pesukoneen kautta käyttöön. Täytynee hankkia vähän pienempi juomarakko, koska entinen on tähän hieman turhan iso.

This Dutch 3-Day Assault Pack is exactly as described (and more, if you're lucky). In fact, the one I received exceeded my expectations! Despite Varusteleka's recommendation to wash the backpack before use, mine came sufficiently clean out of the packaging, so I didn't bother washing it; a little "surplus smell" never hurt nobody! As far as the sternum strap and waistbelt go, both were present on my pack which I was pleasantly surprised to see. The backpack as a whole is in near-mint condition, aside from a negligable tear (about 1 cm wide) on the inside of the main compartment and slight discolouration from use in the field. Being Dutch Army surplus, there is (presumably) the previous owner's last name written in permanent marker on the right shoulder strap, which I think is a cool historical element that makes the pack unique! Currently, this pack is serving as my everyday bag for university, but I also plan to use it on short hikes, while travelling, etc. so the sky is the limit for how you want to use it! For example, I am utilizing the water bladder pocket to store my laptop. Bought as an upgrade to my 5.11 Rush 12 and I can honestly say this pack is superior in almost every way.

It has 11 L more carrying capacity, larger surface area (more webbing), four compression straps instead of two, sleeping mat straps underneath (I recommend rolling and taping up when not in use so they are not tickling your rear end as you walk), lockable main compartment zippers (nice for travelling), plus it's nearly half the cost; the only downside is that the secondary compartment doesn't have additional pockets on the inside, but that can be remedied with external pouches! I know it's like comparing apples to oranges, but I seriously think this pack also beats 5.11's 3-day equivalent, especially considering price. This is a high quality pack made with rugged materials, plus it's surplus! Who doesn't love army surplus?

For those interested, there is one ID tag that reads: "DAYPACK, 35 LITER, COYOTE TAN NSN 8465-17-123-0411 SAMENSTELLING [COMPOSITION]: POLYAMIDE GECOAT PU"

this is basicly a LBT 3-Daypack in a differnt colour and without a tag, issued for Dutch SF. and that for ~50€.(instead of 220$)
I made a Lucky pick with this one beside a loose thread and the mandatory mil-surp smell there was nothing to complain about. Best price-performance ratio i ever had for a Backpack
