Dutch 3-Day Assault Pack, Coyote Tan, surplus
We got a one-off batch of the classic 3-day Assault Pack made for the Dutch armed forces. This type of pack has been issued to various special forces for a long enough time that the design can be considered historical. Still a very fine backpack for anything you need.
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 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
- 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. 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!

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