The East German Sturmgepäck (assault pack) is not as bad a piece of kit as you'd think: a simple, square shaped pack made of thick, waterproofed fabric with Strichtarn camo, carried with Y-suspenders or anything you clip it onto. Can also be attached to bike racks with very little work!

To increase the carrying capacity, loops for extra stuff (blankets, Zeltbahns) are provided on the outside. Inside measurements about 30 x 30 x 12 cm (12" x 12" x 5").

All of these are waterproofed in some way, be it a PVC sock style or just rubberized fabric. Please accept that we won't pick, you just get the next in line.

Hey, bicycle fanatics!

Get two of these, attach them to your bike and hey presto, you have pannier bags for much less than the actual ones cost! The cheap price doesn't even reflect quality: these are army surplus kit and made for real use.

East-German surplus

All of these seemed to be unissued, in pristine condition. However, long storage time might be seen in some slight surface rust on a few metal parts.

These are fantastic - I bought two for use as motorcycle panniers, but now I use them for everything. They're each about the right size to use as a weekend bag (They'll take a couple of books, t-shirts, socks, a wooly jumper, and a bottle of wine each) so with two of them you can really pack luxuriously. They're not padded at all, so you'd probably not want to put them in the hold of an aircraft, but they're small enough to carry on. They're waterproof enough that even after a few hours in really driving rain, the only wet things on the inside were from a small trickle that had worked its way down between the many layers of flaps.

Their real strength is the strap system - They come with a detachable yoke, which is a Y-shaped arrangement of straps, but they're covered in attachment points (Four on the front, four on the back, two on the sides, and a carry handle on the top), so they can be worn as a backpack, a shoulder bag, around the waist, clipped onto bits of your bike frame, attached to a service dog's harness or whatever. The d-rings also mean that you can hang other things on the outside of the bag, or clip one of them to the other to lift both at once.

My one complaint is the external buckles that hold the flap down; They work on friction alone, so they're very adjustable, but they also don't feel incredibly secure and sometimes they take a bit of fiddling to get right.

Not only would I recommend these to a friend, I already have, and he bought two and loves them as well.

funky pack, slightly stinky but nothing to write home about. lots of extra straps you can take off or put on as needed.

Maybe it's my Ostalgie, but I love these things and I look for excuses to use them instead of some more practical backpack. The problem is they're so small (12L?), pretty shrimpy even for a trip to the grocery store. But the integrated waterproof bag is a thing of genius--WTF is this not standard on all backpacks--and the East German plastic & vinyl aesthetic is awesome. Plus I love raindrop camouflage. These things do off-gas some kind of evil Communist rubber smell and should cleaned and aired out well, and I don't think I'd want to leave one in a hot car for days on end for fear of stinking it up.

While there is the problem of capacity, I find it's mostly a case of packing smarter, not harder. I like it's waterproof lining, which is particularly useful in Irish weather going to school, and It's also a nice piece of Strichtarn if you like collecting it.

Functional and stylish. :)

THE MOST COMFORTABLE BAG OUT THERE
It was -15 out side in the bush and I was wearin thin Canadian Military combats and this bag kept my back so warm and could carry many useful things inside it was great for carrying my MRE’s in when running around.
And I love the rubber bag lining inside overall very good and durable

Works GREAT with my old-school 80s' bike. Heavy-duty, waterproof, plus good looking, in this price, this's all you can get.
The yoke works well for preventing the bag from touching the tire (I placed the bag at the front ).

For the price, you cannot beat a deal like this. I bring it to school and get a lot of positive comments on it. It really is a great backpack that works well for how old it is. Only thing was the smell, to get rid of it I put dryer sheets in it, left it overnight and even put it in the dryer for about 15min. Really nice and works well for the job. It even goes on your bike, why pass this thing up?
