Just in from the Czech Republic, we've got brand new M85 Backpacks from the Czech army!
These bags are really awesome! You can carry a large amount of gear and not worry about it getting wet. At the price these bags sell for, this is a great piece of gear to take into the woods with you or build your own bug out bag.

Heavy duty waterproof pack for less than $10??? Yes, it's real! Very nicely built. It would be awesome for a pack to keep in the car or to go from the car to base camp with. Thin straps can be replaced by ALICE straps but no frame and no waist belt mean that you probably won't want to trade in your Kelty for one. Then again, that's not what it was designed for. Buy one before they run out or be prepared to kick yourself. Also don't forget to grab the matching shoulder bag for a couple of bucks!
this back pack has many uses, as storags, etc .
This is a great addition to any survival equipment complement. Waterproof is a understatement. Can add other bags/pouches to the mix as a superior backpack system. Think B.O.B.
This pack is large and made of a durable, waterproof material. I purchased it for hauling clothes etc. in a bug out situation. Can't wait to test it out camping this year. Straps are thin and I doubt that they would be comfortable for a long haul. Will replace them with old A.L.I.C.E. pack straps. For $10, this bag is worth it! Buy one!!!!
My old Kelty external frame pack from the 1980's had started to rip from age,so I bought this waterproof tough bag to go on the external frame.I used zip ties and sewed a few attachment points on with grommets.Mine came new and had an awesome smell of rubber :)!
This pack is worth every penny. It appears waterproof and spacious with plenty of room for both sleeping bag and shelter items. The two I received look brand new and never issued. Another great product at a fair and reasonable price from "Keep Shooting".
This reminds me of old fashioned portage packs for canoeing. Holds a ton of stuff, waterproof fabric. Won't really take a dunking (not designed for it). Straps are thin. But if you need a big gear bag for short hauls, like a portage around the rapids or from the car to the campsite, and something that will protect your stuff from damp ground or a short rain event, it's hard to go wrong with this one.
This pack is awesome. It is very large on the inside and came completely new and unissued. I have already fit a sleeping system and a parka inside with plenty of room to spare. The vinyl material it is made from seems to be basically waterproof. The only thing I might change on this pack is the straps. They are very small and thin, and I imagine they would not be very comfortable to wear over long periods of time. Other than that, great product!
Good water resistant bag with plenty of room. The shoulder straps are tiny for the size of the bag and the weight you could possibly stuff into it, but for $10, it's still quite a deal.
This is a great piece. As advertised, it's huge. The two sepearate inside compartments are a plus. While the pack is not submersible, the multi-flap closure system will certainly keep the weather out. I have not taken it on a hike yet, but the seams and stitching appear to be heavy duty.
The only con was that the shoulder straps are very narrow and would probably dig painfully with a heavy load. Easy fix: I put some $15 Alice pack straps on there. To my delight, I found that I could then re-purpose the pack's shoulder straps as a belly strap. Works great.
Not yet tested it by fully loaded it yet. I can folder it up and store it inside the Czech M85 Shoulder Bag. Because of its waterproof quality, planning to use it as a Winter (Rainy) Emergency Kit for the Car when we need more heavy clothing. How can you lose for $10 with a huge pack?
Bought two of these to hold emergency supplies in the back of my Jeep and in my pick up truck gang box. Perfect for that use, they are well made and water resistant. But, and it's a big but, they do not come with the load bearing straps that are needed to carry them. They use the same German-like Y strap system that the Czech M60 pack uses. But I can't find them anywhere, except in leather, which kind of defeats the point of having a waterproof pack. The East German equivalent uses a completely different fastener system. I do have a 1960's vintage West German canvas Y strap that works great, but good luck finding that now. So if you want this for a pack, you need to figure out the straps. If you want it for soft sided storage, great deal.
This pack is no-frills but it is extremely watertight well-built and will last you a lifetime another really good to keepshooting.com product!
Well I got this pack a couple days ago and I'm loving I winter is somewhat upon us here in Washington and the water resistant construction is great and has been tested in a downpour already I got this this the shoulder bag and together they can carry everything i need in my bug out bag the only issue being the straps are not the best but throw on some old Alice pack straps and she's a comfortable mainly I use the backpack and my close and tent and bivey bag and the m85 sholder bag as my emergency equipment (flashlights,ammo,waterproof matches, radio ECT.) all and all like this bag its great for me because we get random downpours and I no longer have to shield my pack from the rain

Very good price. A big ruck with one huge compartment and two little inside compartments. The ruck straps are a little skimpy.
Nice, water-resistant backpack, perfect for emergency supplies in the basement or trunk of your car!
Real neat. I currently have this bag sitting in my bedroom in case the $#!% hits the fan, stocked with food, water and other basic supplies. And at ten bucks, holy cow. You guys have never disappointed me.
