Previously Issued - May Have Soldiers Name Written
I love this bag! This is now my favorite general-purpose shoulder bag, and I have 6 or 8 other types of surplus bags (often gas mask bags). Very well-made; very tough! (Also looks great, for whatever looks are worth to you). Heavy Cordura nylon (or similar product) the only way I could tell this was issued is that some Brit (no offense to my UK buddies) wrote his name inside of MY bag with a ballpoint pen... Has MOLLE attachment points on both sides and back. Comes with two deep Velcro MOLLE pouches- one on each side (removable, of course). Has three inside pockets (actually 2 with stitching down the center of one to divide it- you can cut out the stitching is you want two larger internal pockets). I might get another.
Review byTom Horn
Great shoulder bag (man purse). This thing was hardly used; I imagine because they mostly used their back packs (bought a British Short Pack, they used the snail snot out of it, but still fine). Makes a great scout concept bag, for a time when you need to drop your bug-out bag, "go to ground," and travel light (keep one in the truck). Nice hunting bag, too. Will hold plenty of shells for dove/waterfowl/squirrel hunting. I like it so, much I ordered a 2nd one for my son.
Big Black Letters
This is a great bag, if it didn't have the soldiers name in big black letters across the front. I have bought many surplus items from all over the world but I have never came across this. Yes some item have the soldiers name and other things written on it, most times it's hidden from plan view other times it is not. I bought some issued combat pants from Finland they contacted me to ask if I minded ink stains on two of the pairs. (thats customer service) thats checking the product before shipping. I could return this bag but the cost of shipping will outweigh the price of the bag. United Defence did not offer to cover shipping. I live in Canada so shipping is stupid. Foreigners beware if there is a next time I purchase from here (I'm a first time buyer) I'll be sure to ask more questions. I will keep the bag as it's great for a day hikes and minimalistic overnighters.
Mods I have made. added a top handle, cut the inside pocket separator stiching to make it one big pocket, sewed webbing to the back molle to carry my hatchet, sewed adjustable webbing to the bottom to carry a roll, added a soft foam velcro pad to the carrying strap. I really like this now, "Haversack" and can see me having it for yrs to come just pissed about the writing on it. Peace
Roomy & rugged
Slightly bigger than expected, which was a good thing. Still had the gas mask form in it when I got it, but it pops right out easily.
