Versitile and affordable

Mine may be used but looks new. Very useful pack. Strong, sturdy, not completely waterproof but it is moisture resistant. Midsize pack that has unlimited uses. Mine came with backpack straps, shoulder strap, 3 closure straps and 2 straps for attaching items to the bottom. 3 interior and 2 exterior compartments. Great for a day pack and large enough for 2 or 3 day trip. I can put in my saddlebag or strap to my luggage rack, this pack is strong and protective. This pack has so many uses, just use your imagination. For this price you can't go wrong

I've bought 4 of these great bags, 3 from other sources, and the latest from KS. This very large butt pack is part of the Austrian Army pack system from the '80's. I've passed two on to friends, and have the one from KS and another one. The one from KS had instead of the strange shoulder strap, the full web harness straps that are actually for the big "Austrian Alice" pack that is the large companion to this butt pack. The web harness straps are alone more than worth the price! I agree with the comments on the features that other reviewers have made here.
This bag/pack is the most versatile I've yet found. I've used the top and bottom metal grommets and paracord to lash it to a US Army DEI 1603 plastic pack frame. I have used a set of surplus US Army MOLLE II desert camo padded pack shoulder straps with the padded yoke, along with 4 keyring metal loops, to turn this bag into a Patrol pack. I've combined the padded full web harness straps that came with the KS one with a US Army surplus pistol belt to make a full web harness--and, this Austrian web strap harness has six straps, not just four! So this harness is to me, more comfortable and distributes weight better, than any surplus or aftermarket web harness I've seen. Using the plastic belt keepers on a pistol belt, and the two rear harness straps on either set of upper grommets on the bag- gives an especially comfortable carry.

There are likely other ways to use this great bag. IT's rugged, uber-versatile, and suitable to configure as you like. Just get it while it's still around!
Bag is fine, included straps suck !!

Both bags I ordered were used and one had former owners name. Both in nice condition and will be useful once I find a suitable "shoulder strap". Included harness straps are nice if you need load bearing straps for a pistol belt but useless for the pack. After screwing around rigging straps on pack finally did smart thing , took them off and threw into trash. Not real impressed or happy with this purchase due to useless shoulder strap and time wasted in attempting to use. Next time KeepShooting needs to put something with pack that is useful and actually can be used. Feel like purchase was a waste of time and money...
Great bag!

Mine came in good condition! Did not have the clips on back to slip over a belt but inside the pack I got the combat harness. That alone is worth the price of the pack! Thank you Keep shooting!
Great Shooting Pack
Review by Vincent

I take this pack shooting with me all the time. Holds a few items or a full load with ease. Once you figure out how to rig the over the shoulder strap, it carries very well and is very comfortable.

Straps work well to cinch down your load. Plenty of small interior pockets for small items. Rugged material and heavy duty straps and buckles make this pack an item that will take the pounding. I really like the cross chest carry system.

This was money well spent. Excellent addition to my kit.
Would Have Been Great

Missing buckle parts. Two of three straps are not useable. Guess that's the gamble with surplus. If the middle one had the buckle it wouldn't be so bad. Only the left side one has all the parts. Other than that the bag is good.
The pack is great...

I got this along with the East German Combat Belt and for less than 15 bucks had a big butt pack setup.
New, from all appearences, in a plastic bag.
It fit the German belt perfectly.
It looks ALICE compatable.

The strap it came with was not so hot, nicely padded canvas but unravelling in spots.

And it does not fit the pack.

My pack has only 2 top lid straps and that's fine.
I will buy another, and some compatable backpack straps.

Could this be put on a frame???
Good quality bag

Good quality pack . Condition was great looks unissued . On the large size for a shoulder bag, more like a sm/med backpack.
