The F2 backpack is a huge improvement over the earlier F1 model. This is basically a remake of the old '40s paratrooper pack, just made from more modern materials. Lots of pockets and details, a good solid pack and really cheap too.

The F2 backpack is a huge improvement over the earlier F1 model. This is basically a remake of the old '40s paratrooper pack, just made from more modern materials. Lots of pockets and details, a good solid pack and really cheap too.

Lots and lots of pockets and details:

  • Large lid, closed with two straps and buckles. The top of the lid has attachment points for tie-down straps.
  • Two buckles near the mouth of the pack to attach the lid when over-packing.
  • Main compartment, dimensions approx. 30 x 27 x 15 cm (12" x 10.5" x 2").
  • Back pocket, dimensions approx. 30 x 20 x 5 cm. (12" x 8" x 2").
  • Side pockets, dimensions approx. 30 x 15 x 6 cm (12" x 6" x 2.4").
  • Flat pocket against the back, dimensions approx. 25 x 25 cm (10" x 10").
  • Carry handle.
  • Attachment points for tie-down straps on the bottom.
  • Nicely padded shoulder straps, the left hand one has a quick-release buckle for emergencies.

The material is a really strong rubberized canvas. Buckles vary a bit depending on the age of the back. Some have metal buckles, some have plastic ones.

Used military surplus

These have clearly seen some use, some more, some less. But they are still in perfectly serviceable condition.

I love this fucking thing. I have 12 types of rucksack, and though I wouldn't think to call this "my favorite" because it's so basic, if you judge by my actual behavior, it must be my favorite, because I use it literally every day and take it into the field several times a month. This isn't even a case of "value for money" or "best daypack for your dollars," it's just a great daypack, period. The rubberized material is brilliant, the straps are broad and comfortable, it expands and collapses so that you always have a tight pack, comes on and off very easily, and it has points on the top and bottom for attaching extra items. (One of them is for a rifle grenade. Maybe that's a feature you've been needing.) It rides nice and high on your back, and so when you load it heavily, it still sits more ergonomically than any other surplus daypack I own.

I used this backpack couple of years for training and marching and the attachments in the bottom were quite painful against the back when not in use, and I wasn’t the only one. Also the main closing straps were not the most tactical. I switched them right away for plastic buckles as soon as I could get a pair.
Since it doesn´t have "belt" it can move quite a lot when running even if you are using carrying belt. The shoulders straps get untightened often if loaded heavy. Anyway, all in all a nice backpack with smart and simple design that fits everything you need for a few days and stays up in the back. For this price I would defenitely recommend to give it a try. I specially liked the flat outside pocket against the back, for either documents or cushioning.

It's a rugged, waterproof, simple, no-bullshit combat pack. Many pockets, very useful, padded shoulder straps are surprisingly comfortable. I have them set so the backpack puts pressure on my back near the kidneys. It's a bit dirty, has a few blemishes but it gives the damn thing soul.

Autre que ca, R.A.S.
Vive la France !

At the time of writing this review, this bag is out of stock. To those in the future reading this while this bag is available, it is a cool bag.

(I got the older metal loop style buckles on mine so I will need some time to get used to it.)

The crazy thing was I found a fork and a knife in the back pocket of my bag. Both the fork and knife have "Inox France" marking on, and I presume they belong to the previous owner of my bag (poor guy, what are they gonna use to eat now..). I don't know how often this would happen when buying surplus gear, but I can only dream of some authentic utensils whenever I buy a bag. I guess I got lucky there. So, maybe if you buy this bag you might get a surplus rifle grenade of some sort, who knows?

Excellent. It arrived a little dirtier but completely intact and usable. Extremely firm and reliable, and bought for peanuts.
With a little cleaning it became like new. Thanks Varustelek

Excellent thing this is. Roomy with lots of compartments, including one on each side big enough for a thermos or bottle.

I would have given this pack a 5 star rating were it not for the following: One of the shoulder straps is badly frayed and will need to be professionally repaired. I will need to obtain four pronged clips for the plastic buckles, which are missing. Annoying, but ought to be easy to deal with, by buying the replacement parts. It does have the been in storage for a long time smell to it. It has seen use, but still in very serviceable. I do appreciate the retro, old school look to it. I am looking forward to using it. It would seem to make for a good day pack. I like the basic, solid design. I do expect to get many years of service from it. It was well worth the price I paid for it.
