Russian blanket, flanell, gray, surplus

18.99 USD

A cotton flannel blanket, genuine Russian manufacture! For a reasonable price you'll get a quality piece of fabric with a depressing colour scheme and a pseudo-cheerful decorative pattern. If wrapping yourself in this blanket doesn't make you feel socialist enough, you can also try to pay extra taxes. If it's easy enough, you'll get rid of excess money, and if transactions with the taxman are difficult, it will only improve the experience!

Polish combat rucksack, "leopard camo", surplus

9.99 USD

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

Mil-Tec Roll-up Sack

11.99 USD

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.

A Finnish military waterproof packsack, perfect size as a daypack liner. These are quite a leap forward from any standard plastic shopping bags. Available in brown and green.

27.99 USD

Pretty as a hatful of kittens, the Soviet "Veshmeshok" rucksack is quite likely the best carrying sack in recent history. This is the hallowed and feared black navy model!

NVA side cap, wool, enlisted men, surplus

2.99 - 4.99 USD

East German enlisted men's side cap. Made of gray wool cloth. Complete with textile cap badge.

Soviet enema nozzle piece, plastic, surplus

Soviet enema nozzle piece, plastic, surplus

0.99 USD

A plastic ("Ebonite") mouth piece made as an everyday accessory for an enema, Soviet origin of course. "Mouth piece" being a funny word by the way in this case, as, well, you know. The plastic nozzle is pretty humane by the fact that it's very difficult to break in use, unlike the glass variation. On the other hand it doesn't give as much satisfaction from successful use.

Czech sackpack, surplus

Czech sackpack, surplus

7.99 USD

What's like the classic Soviet Veshmeshok sack but even more like a bag of kittens? Well, it must be this Czechoslovakian bag of untold horrors. Made of tough hessian fabric like sandbags, this honest-to-God potatosack is actually like one but with shoulder straps! Made according to the hi-speed low-drag school of thought, this one has no useless features like pockets, dividers or a top flap.

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 material is treated to resist water and quite often actually does. The sack is closed with a tie-string and its own shoulder straps. This system prevents pick-pockets going through the contents when you're wearing it. Amazing!

These rucksacks have one external pouch, straps for attaching a greatcoat or blanket roll, and a name tag holder. Most WWII models were made without these, so remove all excess stuff for that extra special "fighting the fascists"-feeling. Do note that you'll leave holes where the stitching was any stronger.

Pro tip: Are you suffering a bad case of diarrhea? Don't feel like you're able-bodied and fit for service? Don't worry, Veshmeshok will help you! Load your Veshmeshok with a couple of 10 kg lead ingots (large rocks or scrap metal will also work) and go for a run. Run and shit yourself until you feel you'd rather be doing anything else. Voilá, you are once again fit for service! Pro tip provided by Soviet army garrison hospital '79.

Old military surplus

These are mostly in used condition, but nevertheless fit for purpose for a long time to come.

Hinta/Laatusuhde 11/10. Ollut käytössä jo pitkän aikaa päivittäin, enkä vielläkään luopuisi. Kevyt, tilava ja kulutusta kestävä. Hyvä reppu !

Ei tämä varsinaisesti säteile semmoista mukavuuden vaikutelmaa ympärilleen, mutta tälle on ihan oikeasti paikka maailmassa. Puolikiloinen päiväreppu, jonka saa rullattua vaikka reisitaskuun sopivaksi jos tarvis vaatii. Ehanaa! Pakkaamisessa joutuu käyttämään järkeä enemmän kuin jonkun topatun ja luontaisesti ergonomistillisen mukavuuslaitoksen kanssa, mutta ei siihen kuole. Pikku harjoittelulla ja säätämisellä tästä saa naurettavan mukavan kantolaitteen. Siis oikeasti.

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.

A very good backpack, simple to use and hard to replace once you have tried it. Cheaper and way cooler than a normal backpack, I use it while traveling and it never failed on me. Consider purchasing a "plash-palatka" to copleat the kit.

Oma tuli ilman tuota nimilapputaskua, mutta tuo ulkoinen pikkutavaran tasku ja lenkit sadeviitalle/päällystakille oli. Tosiaan tämä on pohjiltaan perunasäkki (ihan tosissaan välillä olikin) johon läimästy hihnat, eli pakkaa järkevästi sillä huonosti aseteltu esine pistää ikävästi selkään. Tuhoutumaton tämä on ja ainoa käytönjälki mitä omassani (puolivuotias näin 11.12.2016) on lievää halkeilua/naarmuilua noitten lenkkien nahkapalojen pinnassa, ja ne ovat olleet ostosta asti kireästi sadeviitan ympärillä. Taitaa jopa kestää vettä johonkin pisteeseen, mutta en laittas mitään kovin kosteusherkkää jos keli sanoo ei. Jos ostat Neuvostoliitto settiin niin ota samalla mukaan Plash palatka, sillä yhdessä nämä tekevät nätin ja erittäin käytännöllisen systeemin.

(VARUSTELEKA, PLEASE GIVE US M/05 VESHMESHOKS! FOR THE SAKE OF ALL THAT IS PURE IN THIS WORLD!)
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.

I carried a full ham home from the store in mine. A insecure security guard asked what was inside? I replied a major body part. He called the police. They thought I was a funny guy and the security guard had ham for brains. IF you carry a full ham the straps can be murder on your shoulders without heavier clothing.

Varusteleka is an amazing company with top notch customer service. I ordered two of these bags and the shipping company damaged one. Customer service shipped me out a replacement as soon as I contacted them even though it was NOT Varusteleka's fault . The bags are excellent com-block quality and you can't go wrong especiallt when turned into oil cloth. I can't say enough about how wonderful a company Varusteleka is, and that they have amazing customer service. Thank you!!! I will always check Varusteleka before any other company, I have already stared telling every one I can about how good the products are and how amazing the people are. I'd also like to thank Lars from the You-tube channel "Survival Russia" for turning me on to such an amazing company. Thank you Varusteleka, you are to notch for sure!!! Cheers

Hieno ja hyödyllinen ryssäreppu joka kestää kaiken perkeleen painon mitä saa tungettua tähän ryssäreppuun. Minun kappaleeheni joku ryssä oli tussilla menny kirjottamaan suurin tekstein jotain joka vitutti hieman jos totta puhutaan mutta kyllä ne tussin jäljet saa varmaan jotenki pois.

Jumalavita! Tämä tuotehan on selkeästi aivan 5/5 tuote niin kätevyyden, käyttömukavuuden ja kurjana muovi-kertakäyttökulttuuri- 2000-luvulla myös ulkonäön osalta! Kyllähän nyt edes hieman klassisesta ja vintage-henkisestä pukeutumisesta tykkäävän ihmisen pitää myöntää, että kyllä tämä reppu hakkaa särmikkään muodikkaalla ja perinteikkäällä tyylillään sen nykyisin jokapuolella eri army-kaupoissa tyrkytetyn inhottavan näköisen, surkeita vetoketjuja, muoilenkkejä ja sekaisin olevia lokeroita täynnä olevan jenkkien Assault pack- kiinanmuovihirviön!! Kuin vertaisi McDonaldsin mautonta hampparia ranskalaiseen Gourmet-ateriaan.
