The French Military Shoulder Bag is the original cotton canvas gas mask bag that was designed and issued to soldiers in the French Army. Replaced later by the same bag just made from vinyl, this original gas mask bag has a more vintage look and is made from tough cotton canvas material instead of vinyl.

While these bags were originally designed to hold gas masks, they are capable of holding virtually anything. The size of the bags make them ideal for holding tools, job site equipment, range gear, or other essential daily use items. There are D-Clips on the back of the bag that allow it to be attached to existing belts, or you can use the shoulder strap to wear as a traditional shoulder bag. There are two large exterior Velcro closed pockets that can be used to organize important gear or tools, with the main compartment being used for general storage.

  • Authentic Vintage French Army Bag
  • Originally Designed as Gas Mask Bag

Bought this bag and it was in very good shape. Ran it through the washer to get rid of the musty smell. Cleaned up very nice. Looks just like the picture.

For 8 dollars it's hard to go wrong with this thing. It's not huge but, its the perfect size for an over nighter at a friends house or something of that nature. I've been taking it pretty much everywhere I go. Really nice heavy material. Definitely not going to wear out for a while.
Good tool pack!

Clip these on to your handlebars and you have a great portable toolkit for your bike! They work well as a bottle carrier too, for those of you that tote a SIGG.
Top Notch Bag
Review by Sam
Verified Buyer
Ordered two of these French Military Shoulder Bags from Keep Shooting and could not have been more pleased. Both bags were brand new, perfect condition, and still sealed in plastic, obviously never issued surplus gear. Made of very heavy duty canvas with a plasticized bottom. There is also a rigid plastic support built into the bottom of the bag to help support heavier items. Nice sized outer pockets with good quality Velcro closures and also has interior pockets for keeping things organized and in place. Nice heavy duty cotton webbing straps to carry over your shoulder or to use to hang on another item. Would definitely recommend this useful shoulder bag and would not hesitate to purchase again.

Great little bag
Review by Dan
Verified Buyer
Very nice bag. I got two and they were very clean perhaps unused. They are very good looking and high quality. So many uses - ammo bag for a rifle, tools, small gear. The side pockets are spacious and can easily accommodate magazines.Get a couple of these for sure. I will be adding a couple more to my next order here.

Great for holding first aid gear. The hooks on the 2 straps on the back clip on to a cord behind my front seat.
