Austrian Combat Pack with Shoulder Strap

The Austrian Army issued this combat pack to soldiers in the 1980s. What makes this combat pack very unique is it can be either worn on a belt, or it can be carried using the included shoulder strap. Each combat pack is in very good condition and is capable of serving as an every day carry bag.

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... Review by Mike (Posted on 4/7/2017)

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! Review by Thomas (Posted on 3/25/2017)
Great Shooting Pack

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.

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. Review by Ray (Posted on 8/28/2016)

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 pack . Condition was great looks unissued . On the large size for a shoulder bag, more like a sm/med backpack. Review by Derek (Posted on 8/12/2016)

This is part of a backpack system. The good news is this bag can be used as a stand alone bag. Outstanding quality no matter where you use it in the field or for school or work.
The shoulder strap is also more rugged then needed be and you won't be able to hurt it. If
you something alittle different that will last for years this is it! You'be surprised how much you can stuff in it. Great people to deal with very prompt shipping no hassels at all.

For 11$ just get it. The strap that came with mine is not the same that's in the picture. If you just want something for hiking or even a SHTF bag on the ready, this is it! I also got the Austrian pup tent & the 2 pack of German insulated canteens and all fits perfect in this bag with room to spare. Review by Victor (Posted on 4/11/2016)

I plan to use this bag to hold all my recovery gear for my 4x4. But it really can be used for so much more. It's a convenient size and the one I received was in great condition. Clearly used, but not very much and no signs of repairs or severe wear. The strap is handy, too, and what I like most about it is how many different ways it can be attached and, therefore, carried. The ability to put it on a belt, too, is cool but not something I plan to use. Review by El Mystico (Posted on 3/11/2016)

This is an excellent quality-made combat bag that I'll use for turkey hunting. I ordered 2 of them and both look only very slightly used. I couldn't figure out how to use the strap the right way (hooking it on the top and to the bottom of the pack) and actually comfortably carry the pack, but figured out if I just hooked it across the 2 top strap holes it works well just like any other shoulder pack I own. It's large enough to be a 2-3 day recon or hiking pack and hold enough gear for the trip. There are also 2 nice straps at the bottom of the pack for attaching a bedroll or whatever suits you. This is a great buy and for the money you really should get two of them. Review by BlackBelt (Posted on 2/29/2016)

Great little bag with a multitude of possible uses. The one I received was in "gently used" condition with just some slight discoloration in two spots. Unique strap that is durable and allows for different configurations. A perfect "get home" bag! For the money, get one! Review by Walt (Posted on 2/4/2016)

I needed a more weather resistant alternative to my M-1938 musette repro, and the nylon construction of this particular shoulderbag fit my needs nicely.

Though the arrangement of the shoulder strap takes some getting used to in fitting to your personal preference, the snaps and strap lock hardware are very pretty to look at with their copper sheen and work very smoothly despite their age.

For 10 bucks, you can't go wrong here.

Definitely not in "very good condition". The bag I received was in poor condition with at least 6 repairs one of which was ~3x5 inches. That said I do like the bag and the cross shoulder strap. If it had been in half decent shape I would have been happy as it is I probably should have returned it. Review by NJ (Posted on 11/11/2015)
