Best used as a ladies' handbag, but the intended purpose for carrying magazines of a rather shitty machine gun isn't far behind. Anyway, if you need a small vintage bag (in this case real vintage), get one now!

These have very wide leather belt loops on the backside and a drain grommet on the bottom. Inside measurements about 20 x 20 x 8 cm (8" x 8" x 3"). Weight about 350 grams, probably four times more when wet.

The overall construction quality is something you don't see on civilian bags - these are meant for war after all. Also, you won't find any polyester or other plastic in this, it's all old school materials like leather, cotton and steel. The leather colours vary, sometimes it's brown, sometimes beige, some times even green.

French army surplus

Old, used and stored for a looong time. We suggest a good cleaning before use. The leather should be oiled just in case. Hey, you can't expect army stuff made in the 50's to be clean and dandy right out of the box. At this price, who even cares?

I bought a few of these elsewhere, as tool bags. Talk about massive construction, the leather is at least a couple mm thick, at least, the canvas not far behind. They are heavy for the size, very much meant to be filled with lead. The strap is leather and would be perfectly at home on a pair of pants.
Ladies, if this is your purse, look no further for a weapon.

Muuten ei ole valittamista, sillä tässä on tosi vahvaa nahkaa ja kangasta, mutta ikävä kyllä minulle ei sattunut tuota ns. "väliseinää" vaan se oli parsittu pois ja hävinnyt minne lie. Ymmärrän ettei siellä Varustelekalla valkkailla, sen olen kokenut jo aiemminkin, mutta tähän vähän petyin. Suosittelen silti, kyllä tää jotain tulee ajamaan vaikka olisin sen välin sinne halunnutkin.

I would not call this item "pretty", and the image on this page is likely of a top condition specimen. But David V's comments are accurate. I imagine that with some clean up work that this bag could possibly pass as a lady's purse.

This is not a pretty bag but it's a tough one and well formed. I use it every day. I doubt if anyone makes a bag like this anymore and I would recommend it to anyone. It would more likely last two life times and a bargain too.

This bag is exceptionally well made. The fabric is nicely waxed and pretty thick. And the leather is even better. It's really thick and thoroughly well stitched. I'm sure this bag will last more than my lifetime and at a price of a mere 15EUR it's an absolute bargain.

Nice side-carry.
I use this for shotgun shells during hunting, looks great on your hip to an awesome price.

Asked the staff here to pick me out a nice example, and they did--my only gripe being that the leather is green, not tan like the pictures. The bag looked so good and at such a price that I bought one intending to find a use for it, not the other way around. You might need to hit it with a few shots of Fabreeze but otherwise you likely won't regret picking up a good example.

Oma yksilöni oli melko ronskissa kunnossa, mutta kuitenkin ehjä - pesu ja rasvaus auttovat asiaa, vaikka eivät pinttyneitä ruosteläikkiä poistaneetkaan. Pohjan vedenpoistoaukko on sitten aika iso, joten pikkuesineet saattavat pudota siitä pois. Toimii hyvin kiikarilaukkuna.

My specimen was in a pretty rough shape, but nothing was broken - a wash and greasing helped somewhat, though embedded rust stains weren't removed. The drainage grommet on the bottom is quite large, so small things may go through. Nice bag for my binoculars.

Fantastic!
Looks almost unissued. The leather is clean and supple, the canvas in similar condition.
I almost wish I bought two.
