A truly versatile piece of kit. Like most shelter halves used by armies worldwide, the Soviet model bends to a multitude of uses.

This can be used as a groundsheet, shelter half, rain/camouflage cape, stretchers, or a top layer for sleeping bag/blanket.

There are two variations of these, one with leather reinforced corner holes, one with brass grommets. Both work just as well, we do not differentiate.

Made from tightly woven and impregnated cotton, measurements 170 x 170 cm, weight 1,310 kg.

Russian army surplus

Most are in totally unissued condition, but since some are used we simply label these all as "used army surplus". Still, even the unissued ones might well be a bit dusty after decades of storage and some have other signs of storage, like slight fading here or there from the sun.

Ostin enimmäkseen koristeeksi koska ajattelin et jos haluaa olla ruski niin se viedään sitten loppuun asti, yllätyin.

Tuli yöllä kuulasotiessa aika kylmät kelit yllättäen, ja tästä tulikin täydellinen mukana kulkeva peitto ja piti kaiken epämukavan irti muusta sotasetistä, ei päästä vettäkään läpi. Mokoman pakkaaminen ja mukana rahtaaminen on joskus hyvin ikävää Vesmeshok repun lenkeissä, mutta silloin kun silloin kun sitä tarvitsee niin korvaakin kaikki ikävät hetket, plussana tyylikäs. Toimivuuden näkee kopioiden määrästä.

"Kangas" on tuhoutumatonta, mutta napit ja narut ei, joten kannattaa solmia jokaisen narun päähän joku pallo hidastamaan purkaantumista, tai saatat joutua vetämään omat pieniin "kauluksen" koloihin.

Leka yllätti (kuten usein ennenkin) ja laatikkoon oli tungettu lytätty kasa kurjahkoa kommunistinarua joka oli ilmeisesti säilötty kuivissa oljissa (ja pienissä puulastuissa???), joten kokemuksesta suosittelen pysymään kaukana matoista ja vastaavista innostuksissa repiessäsi laatikkoa auki.

En voi sanoa kuin, että Saatana!

Välittömästi yksi siisteimmistä asioista minkä omistan.
En oikeastaan ymmärrä miksi en tätä aiemmin tajunnut ostaa. Hintakaan ei kelpaa selitykseksi...

Helposti rullaa vaikka repun ulkopuolelle hihnoilla kii. Ja jos nyt roudaaminen ahdistaa ihan hirveästi niin kannattaa varmaan ottaa lääke...

Kaksi VSR-kuvioista omistan, toinen nyt väliverhona eteiseeni ettei myrskytuuli puhalla läpi kämppäni. Näitä on olemassa kolmea eri kokoa ja nämä täällä myytävät edustavat sitä pienintä mallia . Kulmareikien määrä sen paljastaa. Näihin saa napitettua kiini myös DDR- telttakankaan ja käyvät laajennusosiksi unkarilaiseen taisteluparintelttaan, ymmärtääkseni. Näiisä itsessään on aika kämäisesti kiinnitysnappeja/muovihärpäkkeitä .

Satelliittiyhteys toimii Plash-Palatkassa paljon paremmin kuin noissa saksan vastaavissa telttakankaissa ja uniriepunakin on Plash-Palatka voittamaton :-)

Excellent bit of kit, will last for a lifetime and is easily maintained, as its made of impregnated cotton its easily reproofed and/or waxed for weather resistance. It is also easily repaired with buttons or patches able to be sewn on. Excellent, very multifunctional and extremely tough bit of kit.

Even though I haven't used it in the field, I can see why it's so popular: good fabric, easy to store (folded/rolled), lots of different uses, all at a reasonable price. Mine came without two buttons (a common thing with surplus stuff and easy to fix) and a footprint on the back (removed with a wet sponge). Finding the owner's name tag still attached was priceless and its value increased massively for me. The pleasure of buying surplus equipment.

As if God intented it to be this way, a short but rather intense rain shower moved past my house just hours after my plash palatka arrived. So of course I immediately tested it out in my backyard.
It blocked the rain wonderfully, I could hear it hit the plash palatka like I was sitting in a very expensive tent. I even got visited by a bird who was looking for worms, he didn't even seem to notice I was there.

If I had to list a downside I would say it's a bit heavy. But only menly men who don't care about a little weight shop here right?

Spot on piece of kit, mine came and shows zero signs of use what so ever. I've done a bit of reading up and if the reenactor's information is correct the Plash Palatka I received dates from the Second World War! Apparently post war models have brass grommets and metal buttons (like the NVA equivalent) where as the one I have has the wooden toggles and sewn leather grommets. If it's truly that old there's no wonder it stank so bad of old warehouse. Thankfully that washed straight out and I've been left with a very cool piece of history.

Great piece of camping gear or just Soviet memorabilia, definitely won't break even if you use it for what it was supposed to be used for! Probably one of my favourite items to come out from the Soviet Union.

Amazing piece of equipment. Quite waterproof, extremely tough and enough for a survival shelther. Damn, I spent so much in fancy tarps and fjellduk and this is the one I always carry with me when I have to care for the minimum. Even in pouring rain it will protect you as a poncho. It will become finally wet but, don´t ask me how, you will not. And come on, for this price you don´t have to worry about the fragile-super-cool-light-weak-material tarps around the market.

An excellent piece of history, post WW2 manufacture, but identical to ones used in WW2.
That charming Soviet crude sturdiness.

Just received mine as my first order from Varusteleka. Exactly as described and shown in the pictures. Gave off a helluva smell, like sticking your nose into an abandoned 100 years old root cellar, but that's to be expected. Sturdy Soviet quality, will probably last longer than I.

Only drawback is it's weight. Haven't tested it in the field yet, but it'll probably become quite heavy to carry with you after a while. But that could also be seen as a boon I suppose, as weight often magically translate to warmth somehow.

Leather grommet versions are circa 70s. V customer and YouTuber Lars @ Survival Russia has excellent vids showing proper lacing of two together and fitting out as a cape. I gave one with a wool blanket to a emotionally ill and homeless young woman in our recent rains and cold weather. She survived while another
died of exposure. She is now in a care facility and refuses to be parted from it. This is one of those humble items you throw in a vehicle or kit and find a thousand uses for.
