Huge, I could quarter a deer in this thing lol!
It does not have all those little pockets like the modern ILBE packs the USMC uses but I purchased some MOLLE material and sewed it on myself using fishing line. This bag was as described.. It was large, in decent shape and showed some wear. There were no holes, rips or tears. I have had this bag loaded with 130+ lbs of gear and the shoulder straps and all stitching held. Great bag get yours!

Big, sturdy, comfortable rucksack...great value.
Big pack when fully extended, but upper portion reverses into bag for smaller loads. Straps and padding are comfortable. I like the side handles for picking up and moving around. Even with pack extended, the closure straps are long enough to store a tarp, blanket, etc on top of pack. I plan on buying a couple more.

Great Bag, Poor Condition
The bag looks like it would be great if you got one in decent condition. Good size, lots of useful features. Other reviews have already covered this.

The condition of my bag was poor. It may have been issued multiple times. (There were three names on the bag, two of them crossed out.)

One shoulder strap was torn half way through, and the water-resistant material has worn through on both the bottom and the top cover. I was expecting I might need to repair or replace the straps, but there's nothing I can do about the waterproofing.

Other than these issues the hardware is all there and functional. There is some corrosion, but not enough to impair functionality. It should be easy enough to clean up and prevent from spreading.

YMMV. Its poor condition limits the potential applications for my bag. The water-resistance was a big selling point.

Nice Rugged Car Bag
This bag is big and can be put to many uses. About the size of your standard issue duffel bag. You can't tell by the photo but it is an olive drab color. It has a water-resistant cover that snaps over the top and it can be adjusted down to handle smaller loads.

The top cover has a small zippered compartment that you could store a sweatshirt or poncho in.

The bag smells like it has been sitting in a damp warehouse for about 50 years, but that's no big deal. As a Get Home Bag for the car, it should really fit the bill.

There are padded strips on the back, providing some back relief but this thing is not built for comfort. Just remember that it's not suitable for backpacking heavy loads. I plan to just load some supplies into it and throw this in the back of the car. Hopefully, I'll never need to carry it too far. The top straps are long enough to strap on a sleeping bag or other gear.

One of the metal ends for the straps was missing but I think I could rig up something. Overall, this knapsack is a good deal. I may sound like I am complaining but this is a really rugged bag that could be used for a lot of things. A range bag maybe? Gear bag for your boat? Or do like I am going to do and throw it in the back of the car as a Get Home Bag. I like it a lot.

Like a favorite pair of Jeans, worn yes, but perfect fit.
This is a classic. It's got no useless pockets or wasted space. It acts like a medium duffel, but one that you can backpack. Or it's a tough backpack that's collapsible into a bag or can be rough handled anywhere. Mine came with plenty of signs of wear, but nothing detrimental to the usefulness. I got lucky, mine has all the hardware in tact. It's got character for sure.

I stuffed everything I needed for a four day trip, got it wet in a canoe, and still had no complaints. It's just a good, tough flexible item that you wont worry about if it gets a bit dirty, or takes a tumble, it will handle it.

Get one.. or two use em as transport bags, or pack-em out.

By the end of my trip my companions with packs that cost 10 times as much wanted mine. nuff said!
