US Modular sleeping bag system, surplus
We suggest you get these too
DD 3x3 Tarp
A bloody fantastic tarp, a bit like the British army Basha, but a tad better! Large enough for all kinds of setups, with a LOT of attachment loops. Works well on its own or over a hammock. Comes with a stuffsack, ropes and even pegs!
Särmä Erakko tarp, 2,5x2,5 m
Our very own little tarp, made in co-operation with DD Hammocks. Erakko (for all you foreign devils that´s "hermit" in Finnish) is as the name suggest a loners tarp, designed for packability whilst still being comfortably large enough for one person to sleep under. Lightweight and packable, this is one fantastic tarp for pitching one-man shelters!

BW folding sleeping mat, surplus
A great example of German design. This foldable mat also acts as a frame in the Jägerrucksack and the larger infantry ruck (both of which we sell).
US 1qt canteen, Olive Drab, surplus
Issue US Army 1 quart water canteen. Probably one of the most ubiquitous water canteens out there. The same stuff has been issued since the M-1956 load bearing equipment came into use, and this is still going strong!
British PLCE rucksack, DPM, surplus, with frame
British design at its best. The PLCE ruck is a giant leap forward from the old Pattern 58 Large pack and the GS rucksack.
Jerven Fjellduken Extreme
The Jerven bag is honestly the best thing money can buy. The Fjellduken Extreme is a real work of art, designed by order of the Norwegian military. A sleeping bag, shelter tarp and a coat-like windsack all in one, but without compromise - the Fjellduken excels in all its forms! 10 year warranty!
Jerven Fjellduken Original
Heat reflecting, waterproof, simple and reliable, the Fjellduken Original, or Jerven Bag, is a tarp, poncho, bivvy bag and more all in one. This is what Norwegian hunters and soldiers have been using for the past 30 years, as the makers say "The wheel can not get any rounder!"
The US Army modular sleeping bag complex is still a very good system for the buck. Here's the whole package: the Intermediate Bag, Patrol Bag, Gore-Tex Bivy Cover and the compression sack.
Note: Some of the Intermediate bags are Foliage Green. We do not separate them from the black bags, as the only difference is the colour.
Meant to be usable in any environment or weather, the US Army modular sleeping bag system has it all. The innermost bag is the black Intermediate bag, and it is buttoned inside the outer green Patrol bag. If waterproofing or additional protection is required, a Gore-Tex bivy cover will snap on top of the whole thing. The intermediate bag alone offers tolerable sleeping conditions officially for up to -10 degrees Celsius, the Patrol bag to 10 degrees Celsius, and with the whole deal, the system should provide comfort for up to -30 degrees. The modularity has the added benefit of "capturing" insulating layers of air between the bags.
The green Patrol bag is a good choice for summer use and does not take much space either. The outer material is 70-denier nylon fabric, and the stuffing is polyester, which does not absorb too much moisture and dries pretty quickly if it gets wet. It closes with a heavy duty zipper, and has a large hood. The zipper can be opened from both ends, so if required, the feet can have some air too in warm weather. The zipper is accompanied by snap fasteners, to which the other components can be attached. The patrol bag is 229 cm long.
The Intermediate bag is quite similar, but black, thicker, and has a double insulating in the feet. It also features a slight tightening around the chest area to prevent cold air from entering the bag from the hood opening. The intermediate bag is 216 cm long.
For wet weather the bivy cover can be used. Although meant for this system, it can still be used with most other sleeping bags, as it is quite large. It offers good waterproofing capabilities and a bit of extra insulation while still letting moisture out.
The bags attach to each other with snap fasteners and can be used in whatever way you like. Like said before, this is a modular system. The combined weight of the bags, bivvy and compression sack is 3,9 kg.
Also included is the compression sack.
Genuine army surplus
Used, but in good serviceable condition. No bananas inside. This is an affordable choice for a year-round sleeping system, suitable almost every temperature and weather imaginable, and probably beats every civilian bag in durability.
kokeilussani sivuvetskarin ergonomiset ominaisuudet olivat huonot; nimittäin viimeiset 20cm vetskaria oli mahdoton saada kiinni,
koska se sijaitsee niin hankalasti olkapään sivussa ja siksi möin pussin pois ja nyt on tilalla Savotan makkari.
