Soviet medic bag, surplus
Despite the common consensus, "field medicine" in the Soviet Union wasn't always the 7,62 mm magic pill, they honestly tried something else too. This bag is meant for the team medic and used to contain various bandages, very illegal substances and a bunch of tourniquets. But the bag itself is actually a very nice piece of kit!
Made of coarse canvas with stiffened front and back and a multitude of small compartments on the inside. If you remove the divider, this case will take in most laptops. The lid works with the old timey quick release straps. Dimension from seam to seam about 31 x 23 x 12 cm.
Carried with a very strong strap, which is the same stuff the Soviets have been making weapon slings since the times of the Golden Horde or something. It runs all the way under the bag and is of course adjustable. There's also a waist strap, which is not so formidable.
Genuine Soviet kit
Usually very little used or not used at all. Each and every bag is real Soviet army stuff. There's some small variations with the models, see the extra pic.

One could easily cut the divider in the main compartment to allow the bag to accommodate a laptop or larger books. Also, there are leather straps on the front of the bag, underneath the main flap, that allow the bag to be adjusted for a more open or closed fit. There was a minimal amount of verdigris on the metal strap fittings and adjustment points, but no damage. I am quite happy with these bags and I hope my family members will be as well, when they get them.
