East German Combat Pack – Includes Adjustable “Y-Strap” Suspenders
East German Combat Pack
The East German Combat Pack is an authentic military surplus combat pack from the former East German army. With the distinctive Raindrop Camo, these well designed packs immediately bring to mind the height of the Cold War. With the included suspenders you can wear this combat pack like a backpack or carry it attached to your main pack by using the integrated metal hooks.
Very cool bag, looks great, and the water resistance makes it very convenient for the rain.
I ordered two, and they were obviously very different issues, with very different qualities so YMMV depending on what you get in the mail, but the clips can get unhooked from the bottom of the bag, it's nothing a paper clip or any other kind of external clip can't fix, but is definitely something you may need to keep in mind.
At first, the bag may be very awkward to use in civilian life because of it's opening mechanism, but once you get the hang of it, you can open and close the bag quite quickly.
Not a lunchbox!
Review bySeth Verified Buyer
I wouldn't call these a lunchbox or try and sell them as one - this is a rugged bag good for hard wear, not the office fridge.
These are not meant for civilian use - they are designed to be worn with a specific combat rig. If you have some DIY skill, though, you can easily adapt this bag for a variety of purposes!
With their clips these can easily be attached to a bike frame and be used as a GREAT and long wearing pannier!

Ordered two. Both were unissued. One was rubberized wasrubberized inside, the other was not. Perfect bags for anything. Using mine as first aid/emergency kits for the vehicles.
Great little pack!
Review byJake Verified Buyer
This pack is great for a day trip, or to pack a lunch. I got one with a vinyl lining and one with out the vinyl lining. But great packs anyway. Just buy one before they're gone!
Better than advertised
Review byDaryl Verified Buyer
I ordered 2 packs one was used and the other brand new. The used is in very good condition. They are well worth the money. I Went back to order some more but they had been sold out. It just goes to show you if you think keep shooting items are what you want. You better order double they are worth it!
Amazing value for a functional piece of history
Review byCzechguy Verified Buyer
Bag was received in like new condition, completely clean and smelling of fresh surplus. Straps are kinda hard to figure out at first, but once you do its actually surprisingly comfortable, even stuffed to the brim with rock/core samples. Which brings me to its durability, which is also excellent. For 5 bucks too? I may need to get me a backup.
love these packs
Review byEric Verified Buyer
Great all around bag , small pack , storage bag .The Y strap has alot of extra clips hooks and loops for attaching to other gear, after all its part of their equipment. looked and felt brand new , These are waterproof and have big flaps to keep stuff dry. Can fit giant lunch plus drinks and keep it dry while atving.
SUPER DURABLE Fabric
Review byJustin Verified Buyer
This pack is sturdy and thick. It almost stands up on it's own. The straps it comes with would be worth the purchase price. You cannot go wrong with this bag. Would make a great lunch bag (if you are a big eater!). Mine came in issued-great condition. No concerns or complaints. I'm hooked on KS!!
I paid $14.45 on Amazon for the same bag -> I am big believer in KS!
Review byDavid Verified Buyer
I ordered 4 bags to be used as the carrier for my car emergency kit. One of the 4 bags is used. The other 3 are unused. The only differences these bags do not have the extra straps (3) just the Y-shoulder strap - still a great buy considering the big price differences. Keep up the good job - Keepshooting.
Great waterproof Pack for the Money...
Review bymatt Verified Buyer
Great pack was out In the bush on a hunting trip and had this pack loaded down for a day trip when out of no where the rain came down.But I was prepared my pack kept all of my gear nice and dry and kept it all in reach. I would tell any one that pack is worth its weight in gold out in the field and its at a great price for a camp pack I give it five Stars.
