Polish combat rucksack, "leopard camo", surplus
The saddest, most terrible attempt to make military gear, ever. Even empty, this bag is horrible to carry, and the suffering just deepens when you pack something into it.
Mil-Tec Roll-up Sack
Just like the legendary Soviet Veshmeshok, but sprinkled with the wonder confetti of the modern age! Straight outta Transformers, this nylon sack folds into a belt pouch sized contraption.
Finnish M05 pack sack
A Finnish military waterproof packsack, perfect size as a daypack liner. These are quite a leap forward from any standard plastic shopping bags. Made in Finland - these are no bullshit. Available in brown and green.
Vietnamese rubber sandals
Just like the classic "Ho Chi Minh sandals" made of car tyres and used extensively in the Vietnam War, but these are updated to the 2000's and made of regular rubber. The "updated" basically means that the soles come from dedicated moulds, not cut from tyres. Vietnamese manufacture. Sizes on the smaller end of the scale, good for women and men with slightly smaller feet.
Russian sleeping bag, Flora, surplus
Ever wanted to experience sleeping as Russian soldiers do today? We got just the ticket here for you - these sleeping bags are current issue from Putin's warstores, are used and definitely not washed! Ever!
Czechoslovakian foot wrap, surplus
Not often do you find such relics today - after all these years the Czech army finally let go of their foot wraps. Being Finns we naturally were very interested in them. These are tied up probably like the Soviet and Finnish wraps, which are close relatives. 1 pc means 1 wrap! Buy two if you are lucky enough to have two feet! Buy one if you just intend to use it as a rag.
Soviet epaulettes, old model, pair, surplus
Blue-tan Soviet epaulettes of the good old days, these are fit for Gimnasterka jackets - they have an old style buttonhole & loop attachment like German WW2 stuff. These could be used either showing the tan or the blue side. One-off lot!
Pretty as a hatful of kittens, the Soviet "Veshmeshok" rucksack is quite likely the best carrying sack in recent history.
The same kind of sacks were probably used during the Napoleonic wars. However, at some point during or after WW2, these were modernized with four side straps for blankets/shelter halves/greatcoats. Even today it sees action in the modern Russian army. These were still made in the 90's, and if you're lucky, you'll get one of these recently manufactured pieces of ancient history. The dates on the sacks we get range mostly from 50's to the 80's. No, we will not rummage through the wares for the date of your choice.
The Veshmeshok is a very simple, very rough and very durable potato-sack type carrying solution. The sack is closed with a tie-string and its own shoulder straps. Amazing!
Old military surplus
These are mostly in used condition, but nevertheless fit for purpose for a long time to come.
Omani sain vuosia sitten silloiselta anopiltani ilmaiseksi. Oli ilmeisesti ottanut tuotekuvauksen vähän liian tosissaan, eikä sitten enää tykännytkään. Hassuna ja ah, niin venäläisenä yksityiskohtana omassani on ommeltu ulkotasku väärälle puolelle reppua. Muuta tästä ei aiheudu kuin se, että rintaremmin solki on ja pysyy nurin päin niin kauan kun en jaksa ratkoa & ommella asiaan muutosta. En arvellut jaksaa jatkossakaan.
Jos tiedät mitä olet ostamassa, suosittelen. Omaani en anna pois ikinä enkä usko saavani sitä rikkikään niin että jään itse ehjäksi.
You are the only people who can cater to our hilariously niche gear needs - and who knows, perhaps you'll start a new trend!
Anyways, I love this pack! I purchased one through an independent retailer but probably buy one from here as well! The quality and durability is as remarkable as it is crude. Once thoroughly cleaned and maintained, the vesh makes a lovely thing to take along with you onto the subway or around the city with all your belongings tucked safely away - I've received many compliments on mine, a tan sample from Afghanistan.
