Finnish Bread Bag, surplus

Price 14.99 USD excluding sales tax

What a treat for Finnish military history fans! These kinds of shoulder bags were used by our soldiers through WWII, heck, almost throughout the last century. And they will serve you for a long time, too. These are very hard to get these days, but our surplus wizards managed to conjure up a very nice batch. However, this will probably not happen again, so get ‘em while you can.

  • In stock 2120 pcs. Sold 120 pcs in the last two weeks.
  • This product is unlikely to be restocked and will be hidden from our website once it's out of stock.

Features

This bread bag is an old classic. First fielded en masse by the Germans in WWI, and in Finland, this shoulder bag saw use through WWII up till the introduction of the M/85 load-bearing system in the early 90s! Most of the ones in this batch were made in the 1960s and feature four strap attachment points on the flap, but there can very well be older ones in the mix, too. No point in stopping to use a perfectly good bag just because they give you something better.

The lid covers the whole bag and is closed with two leather straps and buttons. The mouth can also be closed with a separate strap & button combo. The original idea was to attach the mess tin and the canteen to the flap. The mess tin was attached from the handle to the clip and secured in place with a strap to the attachment points. The canteen was hung from the D ring found at the top of the bag and secured to the attachment points with the strap found on the canteen itself. On the backside, you will wind belt loops that can be opened. The shoulder sling is adjustable and detachable.

An overwhelming majority of these come in field gray. However, there are a few green ones in this batch, so don’t blow your cosmic consciousness if you get such a rarity. The shade can also vary from darker to lighter colors.

Measurements roughly when full: 25 x 25 x 15 cm (10" x 10x 6").

Use

As the name indicates, these were often used to carry the soldier's daily rations. However, people also hauled ammunition and anything else needed in the field inside these. In WWII, a very common kit used by Finnish troops was simply a leather belt and this bag to which mess kit and canteen could be attached.

This is also an excellent everyday bag for all style-conscious vintage fans who appreciate the old ways. Combine it with anything, and you look great.

Condition

Classic Finnish military surplus that is becoming rare these days. These are used and decades old; some might even be from the WWII era, so they can be patched up, stained, and include other signs of use that only make them look even cooler. A product made well is a well-made product, thus they are still in perfectly serviceable condition. Some buttons might be missing, so be prepared to get new ones.

Oman leipälaukkuni hankin jo kymmenen vuotta sitten kirpputorilta, mutta se on edelleen käyttökelpoinen ja toimiva huolimatta kovasta kohtelusta. Pieniä korjauksia olen vuosien varrella saanut tehdä, kuten ommella nappeja uudelleen kiinni ja paikkailla reikiä. Laukku on kuitenkin luonteeltaan sellainen, että korjausten jäljet vain parantavat sen ulkonäköä. Erittäin hyvä, perinteikäs, kestävä, monipuolinen ja suhteellisen tilava olkalaukku, joka sopii moneen muuhunkin kuin eväiden kuljettamiseen. Ympäristöystävällinen valintakin vielä, kuten ylijäämä aina.

Sen verran täytyy moittia, että hinta näyttää kivunneen kymmenessä vuodessa enemmän kuin inflaatio antaisi odottaa. Maksoin lähes puolet vähemmän omasta laukustani kuin tällä hetkellä tuossa ylhäällä näkyvä 14.99 euroa, vaikka kunto oli silloin hyvinkin priimaa.

Tuttu härpäke tämä leipälaukku minunkin intin ajoilta. Laukku oli kiinnitetty taisteluvyön/taisteluliivin taakse kun kävin inttiä vuonna 85/86 ja laukussa kuljetettiin ruokapakkia. Koskaan ei nähty, että tätä laukkua olisi käytetty olkahihnan kanssa.

Incredibly soft carry strap, can verify is worth rubbing on your face. No frills, big'ol sack. Single pocket, buttons shut from under the flap. Looking forward to using mine as a budget buttpack on my cheapo walmart belt when foraging in the morning. Truly lovely piece of kit, will likely buy more as gifts and to have lying around.

品質不是很好 不堅固 有損壞 需要修理 給,原因是這個袋子很小~~比A4小,用來裝一頓飯應該可以。我給它4星是因為袋子很小~~比A4小,所以應該足夠裝一頓飯了。

I ordered two of these bags and waited with a gear-junkie's anticipation as to what I would be getting in the mail. I love the old canvas/leather/metal construction that simply kicks ass when compared to the nylon/plastic/rubber designs. Here is what I found when I opened the package. Man, these bags have SEEN shit, and DONE shit, and they do indeed have heavy stitched repairs. The leather pieces were perfectly intact, the metal had no rust at all, and no pieces were missing. Not sure if these bags could withstand an apocalypse, but it looks like they have already. As advertised, they are old, bashed, and fashionably trashed. In short...absolutely perfect! Very happy with both of them. Anyone reading this...buy one now. Or two. Believe me, it's worth it. Another gold star to the wonderful people who made this possible. Thanks again.
