BW mountain troops rucksack, surplus

BW mountain troops rucksack, surplus

27.99 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

36.99 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

10.99 USD

The most basic sleeping mat is a piece of foam plastic. Affordable and durable - holes and damage do not really alter the function.

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.

Swiss crampons, surplus

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!

Czech sackpack, surplus

Czech sackpack, surplus

7.99 USD

What's like the classic Soviet Veshmeshok sack but even more like a bag of kittens? Well, it must be this Czechoslovakian bag of untold horrors. Made of tough hessian fabric like sandbags, this honest-to-God potatosack is actually like one but with shoulder straps! Made according to the hi-speed low-drag school of thought, this one has no useless features like pockets, dividers or a top flap.

Bundesmarine jackboots, surplus

Bundesmarine jackboots, surplus

63.99 USD

Although traditional leather jackboots weren't a large part of the image of the Bundesrepublik Deutschland, nothing stopped them from making them. These are German navy issue boots.

BW survival vest, Tropentarn, surplus

BW survival vest, Tropentarn, surplus

9.99 USD 13.99 USD

German army Tropentarn camouflaged service shirts converted to intricate vests by East German ladies.

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?

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.
