In many situations more visibility means better survivability, like amongst urban traffic or when hunting (conversely, probably not during the Italian hunting season). Around here the weather is usually crappy too. Thus, a perfect accessory for anyone wearing a backpack is a rain cover for it.

Czechoslovakian M60 backpack, brown, surplus

9.99 USD

A small, brown canvas or linen backpack from Czechoslovakia. These are probably made in the earlier part of the Cold War, copied almost directly from the German World War 2 era rucksack. Actually a pretty nice piece, especially considering the price!

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.

Makes a really great bicycle bag. Good quality, looks pretty water resistant. Has a strong plastic smell

One of the best day packs out there, I really like more straight tornister style. I must admit that I didn't buy it from here, but I've experimented a lot with the pack and found one way to avoid having to wear an external belt for the three loops on the front and back. You simply run the first rectangular "d-ring" of one of the belt loop into the loop used for the blanket strap located on the sides, connect it to the "hook" and tighten, repeat this on the other side and now you'll never have to worry about straps dangling around. (You can still run blanket straps through the strap loops with this method) Now for the rear belt loop, if you receive or already have blanket/zeltbahn straps, you can just drag the strap that sits on the top way down and connect it to the rectangular d-ring, (You won't be able to fully use your blanket straps with this method) or you can suspend the belt loop from two short lengths of paracord from the two d-rings sitting on the bottom of the pack. I wonder if the material of this pack allows for dyeing?

Ei käytännöllisin, mutta hyvännäköinen ja simppeli reppu. Huijannut jo useita nuoria, että kyseessä olisi kallis muotilaukku (muotitietoiset huomio!). Hinta-laatusuhde täyttä timanttia. Yksi tähti pois hajusta, joka estää laukun käytön sosiaalisten tilanteiden parissa. Haju tosiaan muistuttaa kissankusen, juoppoputkan ja perinteisen ylijäämätavaran yhdistelmää. Haisee siis voimakkaammalle kuin osasin odottaa.

Tl;dr käyttäisin useammin, mutta tyttöystäväni ei anna, laukun hajun takia.

A great and flexible little day pack that can be stacked together for bigger load capacity, i.e. you can hang another pack behind and/or under the one attached to the webbing set. Obviously you can't fill the outer pack with a lot of heavy things, but it's fine for lighter bulkier thing that you want to put inside a pack rather then letting it hang outside.

The yoke probably isn't the best but the comfort can be highly increased with a pair of shoulder strap pads or if you hang the pack on some other webbing set.

I bought one at first and then came back for another two. You really can't go wrong with a price like this considering the flexibility of the pack. All three of them was unissued by the way.

The pack itself is great - sturdy, waterproof, and a good size for a day pack/assault pack. However, the yoke is absolutely terrible. It fastens onto the bag in a strange way - there are D loops at the bottom which attach to little "clips" - however there is nothing to really keep them in and when they're not under tension they come unattached quite frequently, so you end up picking the thing up only to have to put it down again and re-attach the yoke. Secondly, there are loads of spare straps on the yoke that are meant to be attached to an NVA belt - great if you have one and want to wear it, but not so great if you don't have one or don't want to wear it. Even if you wore the belt with it, there is a strap at the back which is awkward to get off and this means that actually taking the pack off is much more hassle than is necessary.

With all that said, it's not unusable and it's going for such a cheap price I can't really mark the score down more than 1 star. I'd recommend it but just be aware that it is not really the most practical pack.

I received a pack without a vinyl liner, for what it's worth. I also received three small straps with attach to the sides and top of the pack. I am unsure if every pack will come with them since they aren't directly mentioned. The yoke (or Y-strap) is an ordeal as others have described, but I haven't found the pack too uncomfortable while not overloaded and while wearing at least a light jacket.

For the price, the construction quality is excellent. It seems to be a good option for a dependable backpack.

I made bicykle pannier bags out of two.
They work perfectly, and ooze with retro style.

Got two as bicycle bags a year ago. Even after some junkie slashed the closing straps, I improvised some cargo straps, and they've been going strong since. They look like sour mold, but I don't need them to look five-star. They work, and for the price, are over-performing.

Simple shoulder pack that's sturdy and waterproof (relatively). You can also buy one of the webbing belts to really completele the thing. It's strong and cheap, perhaps not the most comfortable. But then again, isn't that most communist things? Great buy!

Got mine a few days ago. Love it. Not sure if it was fully waterproof so I threw in the tub and showered it while singing the Sakkijarven polka and only the name tag got wet.

It does get some time to get used to, though, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CQZWe_YGPwk
