Show the product description

A canvas case used to hold marking equipment, or that's what it says on the lid. A nice multi-purpose manpurse, real deal Finnish army fashion design. One-off lot!

Consists of a divided main space, small holders for various things on the front and two blobby pockets on the side - these take in chargers and such. Lift-the-Dot closure. Carried with a shoulder strap and a waist strap, both adjustable of course. These have a real premium feel to them compared to many others, with high quality materials and workmanship.

Main space dimensions approx. 25 x 22 x 8 cm.

The Perfect bag for a hammock. You can roll the tree-huggers/straps in the outside pocket and add a few carabiners too.
Inside there is ample room for a Nalgene bottle in the shorter compartment and loads of room for your hammock in the large one.
Mine arrived all new, not a speck of dirt, not the slightest discoloration. Just that familiar surplus smell we all adore.
So if you want to make the perfect gift for a "hanger" friend or want to make the dream hammock kit, this is it.

I have several Finnish gasmask bags (also sold here, they are excellent, buy them!) but even though they are excellent, there is no 'one bag to rule them all'. I try to buy used stuff, because I love how it looks and feels, and you can't beat surplus quality for the money. This bag is superb, as it is of massively high quality, and will probably outlast me.



The gasmask bag is what I use everyday, but it lacks a divider for a water bottle, and some other basic organisational features. the pockets on the inside make it pretty much idiot proof, but they can be hard to reach, and the bag sags a bit when it's full. all very minor things but enough to seek out a complementary piece to go with it.



Enter this bag, mine came brand new, no dust, no stains, no nothing. It even lacks the typical surplus character. It has the smell though, which is a good thing for me. The pockets on the side are big and bulky, and made for a specific piece of equipment, probably. you could stick a charger in there, or a mouse for a laptop probably, but unless the pocket is full, the flap does not properly close it, so small stuff could fall out. My solution is to fold the pockets and their lids flat, and stitch the lid to the bottom of the pocket so that they lay flat. Two stitches on each side is enough to keep them closed, but will easily be cut to use the pocket when i want to use them.



The rest of the pockets and sleeves and all that are good for storing the small things I keeps with me on a regular basis, and the bag is pretty much perfect for a water bottle and a pair of binoculars, flashlight, basic first aid kit, small snack, flask of whisky, you name it, it's all good.



So I don't like the pockets on the side, which was easily fixed. There was however another issue with the bag, in that the shoulder strap was sewn on backwards. This means that the sliding buckle on the strap has the flat side on the outside, and the 'pointy' side was on the inside. Super uncomfortable, and probably an uncommon mistake as the bag is of excellent quality otherwise. I could have sent it back, but that would cost money and as I am a grown ass man, I can sew a strap. Anyway, I cut the stitching off the sliding buckle, flipped the thing over and sewed the thing back together. Took a couple of minutes, and makes a man feel good! Regardless of the 'defect' the bag still gets the full 5 stars as it is excellent.

Really great man-bag. For when a rucksack or something bigger is just too much. I've used this bag on a few occasions now. Out for the day in the countryside, you can stick some food, phone, pens, compass, knife, maps or whatever in here and you're good to go. And on a trip to a local city, had what I needed for the day in here. For the price, it's wonderful, looks great, and blends in really. (Apart from feeling a bit self-conscious about walking around London with some Finnish on my bag, but, dare to be different!!)
Save the pockets on your jeans, shove everything in your Finnish Marking Equipment Surplus Bag!

Great little bag, Really cool with the Finnish writing on it. Nice little compartments and pockets and loops for pens, mobiles, headphones, charging cables etc etc. I can fit a few shirts, underwear, toiletries for trips into Europe for a few days in it for traveling light on planes and trains.

Fast delivery to the U.K. from are friends in Finland, Hope to buy something from Varusteleka again in the near future. Kiitos ja kippis :-)

Bag arrived in used condition, with some very local discoloration from wear on the lid and on the snaps. The shoulder- and hip strap has a black discoloration from rubbing on what I'm guessing was a leather belt or oxidizing metal.
The bag is a bit smaller than what I thought, from looking at the pictures. Will probably fit 6-7 50 cl beer cans in the larger compartments, and a plethora of slim-jims or sausage snacks in the smaller compartments.

I own two similar milsurp purses, the polish breadbag and a Swedish small general purpose shoulder bag from the 60s (oldies says it's a "grenade bag"). Of the three the most design time was probably spent on the Finnish bag, as it is clearly sewn with the intent of holding a specific kit. Material qualify and workmanship is about equally high in the Swedish and the Finnish bag, but the Swedish one has luxury leather straps which is always a big plus.
The polish bread bag can't compete with the Finnish or Swedish bags in either material- or workmanship quality, but on the other hand it's way cheaper and probably holds more stuff.

The Finnish marking equipment bag is a lovely piece of vintage manpurse, if Vausteleka restock them do yourself a favor and buy one. You can always find a use for a fine bag like this!

A special shout out to Magnus at Varustelekas customer service, who hooked me up with two free cans of Shokakola when my order was delayed. The professionalism of Varustelekas customer service is why I keep coming back here, despite Sweden obviously having the best military surplus :)

Sain laukun, jossa ei lukenut mitään, eli kaikissa ei siis välttämättä ole tornilogoa saati tekstiä. Lift-the-dotit tuntuvat olevan jäykempää tavaraa kuin useimmissa nasselaukuissa ja pysyvät jopa kiinni. Taskujen koko saattaa vaihdella hieman: omassa laukussani tuo kuvassa näytetty 4.5 cm tasku, jossa on joko veitsi tai yleistyökalu, oli jaettu kahteen osaan, jolloin kumpaankaan ei mahtunut juuri mitään - siitä selvisi kuitenkin ratkojaa käyttämällä. Laukku oli käytetty - ulkoisen taskun läpässä oli jotain oranssin värisestä kynästä tms. peräisin olevaa suhrua mikä ei kuitenkaan juuri näy ulospäin - mutta muuten kaikki oli hyvässä kunnossa.

Wonderful little butt bag, mine is in perfect condition with a nice darker od green shade.
In the city there is just enough space for my studio headphone case, a 1L canteen and a notebook with a few pens.
While doing some hunting its perfect for a poncho, the same bottle and some extra shells!

The push/pull buttons have a positive lock and the connected belt makes it almost safe to run after the bus.

25 Maple bucks!?! God bless this shop.

Ehkäpä paras olkalaukku minkä olen hankkinut. Juuri sopivasti taskuja ja lokeroita kaikenlaisille taiteilutarvikkeille ja luonnoslehtiöille. Ulkonäkö omassa laukussa oli vielä aivan priimaa, eikä pelkäämääni "Merkitsemisvälineet"-tekstiä oltukaan läppään painettu.

I have both the marking bag (FMB) and the gas mask bag (FGMB).



Previously, the FGMB was my daily use bag when a rucksack was too much.

My first FGMB has a weak set of snaps on the front. Coupled with the issue of the bag hanging at an odd angle, anything too heavy would invert the bag and the snaps would open, spilling everything on the ground.

I hazarded a second purchase & the second bag has branded 'arrow' snaps which were much more secure.



The FMB doesn't have the same 'tilting' problem as the FGMB & has the branded arrow snaps.

The cover is deep enough that I'm not worried about anything falling out - it goes 3/4 of the way down the front of the bag.

It DOES have the same 'backwards strap' problem that another user reported - so it's not as uncommon as it might be thought to have been.
I will be cutting off the default strap and be replacing it with an AK sling.


I wasn't fond of the text, so I increased the utility of the bag by sewing a quick loop-strap to the front.

I'd pick this over the FGMB just about any day.

The bag I got was a completely different shade of color than the one in the photo. I mean, not even close. It also stinked heavily of mold and was extremely stiff. It had probably been stored moist and had gotten stuck in the shape it was stored in and got moldy. But the shape and size is nice.



I don't like the lottery system Varusteleka uses. If you get a brand new bag in good shape, 20 euros is dirt cheap. If you get a moldy stinky stiff piece of shit, it's a rip-off. I also don't like the fact that they put the best ones in the photos and then send you something completely different.



So if you order this bag, it's probably best to order like four or five, pick the best and send the rest back. That's obviously not very good for anyone, especially the environment, considering all the excess shipping.
