The Croatian Army Woodland Backpack is a combat-proven backpack that served soldiers in the Croatian Army. These mid-sized backpacks are designed to give soldiers a handy pack that can carry essential gear into the field for the mission they are deployed for. You'll find this design makes these backpacks one of the most practical military surplus backpacks as they are sized perfectly for daily use, feature a familiar US-style woodland camouflage, and have just enough features to make these backpacks a step above the rest.
With these Croatian Army backpacks you are not just buying a functional and practical backpack you are buying an authentic military backpack with history. Many of these backpacks saw service in the Croatian War of Independence where they helped the Croatian Army achieve victory. This service means your backpack was likely used in a combat zone and may have signs of use or personalized markings which will give your backpack more character. No matter what, you can count on these backpacks to serve you well, just like they did for the victorious Croatian Army.
Pack looks brand spanking new out the box. I was very pleased with the condition and how big it actually was. The perfect pack for longer day hikes or one night trips. If you feel like you could do with some more space in your pack, this is the answer. You throw that sleek Woodland Camo into the mix now you Stylin' and babes smilin'.
I needed something that wasn't big that could hold a few items for a day of fishing, hiking, etc. This fits the bill - and it doesn't look used to me. Looks like a brand new un-issued item. Very happy about this purchase.
Nice little day bag for hunting or hiking. Good collectable bag too if you are in to collecting military surplus bags.
This bag is exactly what I've been looking for to carry the armload of stuff I usually need to take back and forth to my car when I start and end my day - things like my wallet, gun bag, glasses case, cellphone, pack of gum, shopping list, and on and on. I used to try to wrap my arms around all that junk and make it to the car, leaving a trail of dropped miscellaneous stuff behind me. Then it dawned on me - I needed a "murse" (my wife's term) to carry all my stuff in, but I wanted something that looked manly and brawny. This bag fits the bill nicely. Mine needed a good washing or two, had a sort of funky, stored-a-long-time smell to it, but it came out after a few rounds in the washer, and now works exactly as intended. It shows signs of wear but still has a lot of life in it, and is well worth the price. I recommend it to any guy who's tired of trying to lug all his doodads around and had rather drop them in a bag for ease of transport, and not look girly while doing so.
Condition was great looks to be unissued. Nice size for a daypack. Daughter plans to use as her hunting pack. Can't beat it for the price fabric is soft and quiet.
Nice bag, can carry your essentials. Also doubled as a shoulder bag - just unhook the carabiners and clip them together.
Pouches on the side hold small water bottles or a canteen, all in all, a good back. You may consider padding the straps a bit more for a heavy load.
