Altough this model hails from somewhere in between the ages of dragons and Vikings, it was still issued in the Norwegian armed forces until recently. And why shouldn't it be? This is a really tough, soldier-proof basic rucksack that will surely outlast most modern plastic-fantastic contraptions. Nowadays getting scarce, get yours while stocks last!

Please note: The extra equipment, genuine enemy skull, Norwegian snow monster pelts and traditional close combat weapons are not included! The same goes for all the extra straps in the pictures, these we can't guarantee.

Features:

  • Estimated total volume approx. 40 litres.
  • One large main compartment and two side pouches.
  • Large, well covering flaps with leather straps.
  • Adjustable leather shoulder straps.
  • Removeable steel frame, which can be carried separately. Things otherwise difficult to carry may be easier to lug around when fastened to a rigid frame.
  • Leather reinforced bottom.
  • A small zippered pouch inside the main flap.
  • Skis or two-handed axes can be carried behind the side pouches, but the straps might not be included. The same goes for any straps that are not permanently fixed to the ruck!

Extra kit can easily be strapped onto the ruck in many places, or directly to the frame. We recommend you stock up some utility straps just in case!

Materials vary a bit, most of these are green nylon, with some brownish ones in the mix too. Some are made of canvas. The straps, frame, and style remain the same in all types.

Genuine army surplus

Used, but still perfectly serviceable, even in the pretty nice condition generally. Many straps are fixed onto the ruck with multiple rivets, and some of these may have come loose (but this is rare). This rarely causes any trouble and is easily fixed with a couple of stitches or other own patents.
