BW mountain troops rucksack, surplus

BW mountain troops rucksack, surplus

29.99 USD

Let's just go ahead and say that this is the best surplus rucksack there is. Very simple, rugged, just the right size for general use, and if it breaks, we'll give you another one.

Finnish water bottle, 1 l

Finnish water bottle, 1 l

7.99 USD

Finnish Army current model water bottle. A very practical canteen with a large opening and a metal hook for carrying without a pouch. You know a piece of kit is pretty good if the soldiers don't complain about it.

BW mountain trooper rucksack, old model, surplus

BW mountain trooper rucksack, old model, surplus

39.99 USD

An older version of our best-selling medium sized rucksack. Almost as good as the newer, and way more retro. These are getting rarer by the shipment.

Mil-Tec sleeping mat, Olive Drab

Mil-Tec sleeping mat, Olive Drab

11.99 USD

The most basic sleeping mat is a piece of foam plastic. Affordable, but not really that high quality. However holes and damage do not alter the function much.

Paracord, 15 m

Paracord, 15 m

9.99 USD

Originally soldiers had to snatch their paracord from used parachutes. Being just the right size for general purpose use and fairly strong too, paracord has since become the de facto universal cord for US military and many others.

Do you keep falling on your arse on slippery surfaces? The neighbour's kids have kicked the football again on your yard and you forgot the knife into the other trousers? Fear not, here's the solution!

Swedish air force rucksack, surplus

Swedish air force rucksack, surplus

39.99 USD

This obscure pack is the Swedish air force variant of the better-known LK 35. Overall the appearance is more vintage style - leather reinforcements and thick, tough cotton canvas construction. A steel frame keeps the sack in shape and makes it more comfortable to carry.

Italian Fez hat, surplus

Italian Fez hat, surplus

29.99 USD

Lacking a quality fez? Seen all the crap the dimestores have to offer? Well, how about a real army surplus fez! We might not get more of these, unless the Italians go to stir shit up in Africa again.

US waterproof bag, surplus

US waterproof bag, surplus

9.99 USD

A large heavily wateproofed nylon sack. A cheap way to make your rucksack reliably showerproof.

Särmä TST Dry Bag

Särmä TST Dry Bag

14.99 - 29.99 USD

Lightweight, waterproof dry bag with roll top closure. A basic piece of kit which can be used to organize and waterproof your gear inside your pack or, especially in this case with the NIR compliant camouflage print and all, lashed to it´s outside.

A large canvas/linen blend sack, with some very Italian details. Even though not actually a very good rucksack, this certainly is tough and has a certain retro charm to it.

Made in the days when luxuries like frames and sternum straps were seldom seen, this pack, as far as we know, was meant for mountain troops. It is probably for this reason that the main compartment's closure system is very secure, although thoroughly Italian in complexity: under the lid there's a huge array of metal grommets with a chain to put it all together. "How?" you ask. Well, don't ask us - we have no idea of the correct way to do this. We bet the Italians don't know either. See the picture for how we went about this. That took us a lot of time to do. The mouth itself doesn't have any tightening system - any piece of cord will do. Or chain, if you stay loyal to the style of the pack...

Apart from these oddities the rest of the pack is pretty run-of-the-mill: very basic shoulder straps with a quick release system and two outer pockets. You could easily come up with a DIY stiffener for the back. It could a be as simple as a cut up piece of foam mat.

For you all canvas and flax lovers (we know there's a lot of you around) this is an excellent deal - bomb proof army issue quality for tenth of the price of modern "retro" stuff. When was the last time you saw a linen rucksack as modern manufacture anyway?

Ítalian army surplus

I am amazed at how much this holds. The contents of my LK35 packed to the brim makes this thing look like it's carrying a few pebbles inside. Also, I got it in a new condition with the fabrication notes and everything still attached to the pack. I put a Polish poncho down each of the pockets, fits very snuggly. The only complaint I have is that the clips and the material used in the fastening straps won't cooperate.

I enjoy this basic rucksack. Old look , old style, rustic ... a mat inside , additional shoulders straps ... Useful like a duffle bag too , in a corner of a jeep, in the trailer , and , easy to load a saddle of a donkey and go across the moutains . I bought several of this italian " zaino alpini" ;-) i like that's , a good deal !

The Rucksack arrived in pretty much brand new condition and was a dark olive brown/green colour. After checking it out I used my pocket knife to remove the internal flappy bits with chain link attachments by discretely cutting away their stitching - in my opinion the flaps are a silly and complicated design and unnecessarily heavy due to the chain. I replaced the tie down draw string with a piece of paracord and a toggle - perfect closure system. Once I figured out how the shoulder straps went together I also removed the big square metal webbing buckles that sit near your shoulders that served no purpose and jangled noisily. This bag doesn't look that big until you start packing but holy smokes it can hold a lot of gear! Very tough construction. Excellent value for money and a few small mods make it simpler, lighter and more enjoyable to use.

Bought 2 now. 1st was the darker colour and looked unused. 2nd was the lighter thicker material, it stunck to high heaven of that well know storage smell. Sadly people on the underground did not like it so much when I carried it home. Quick wash in the bath and all sorted. I also use shoulder pads sold on here to attach to make them more comfier.

Loistoreppu, ollut minulla jo vuosia käytössä. Kestävä, tilava ja miehekkään karunkaunis, eikä hintakaan päätä huimaa. Laatua halvalla. Ketjusulkua ei ole suunniteltu kiireisille matkaajille, mutta senkin oppii näppärästi hoitamaan. Ketjusulku ja karu ulkonäkö pitää varkaat loitolla.
