German Alpine Rucksack

Each rucksack features an olive drab canvas construction and includes a synthetic leather bottom that serves as an abrasion-resistant surface. The overall dimensions of the pack measure approximately 17 inches by 13 inches by 8 inches. The pack is characterized by its large main compartment, which includes a smaller, Velcro®-sealed pocket inside – suitable for separating the contents. The main compartment is secured by a cotton drawstring with access provided by a large storm flap that utilizes large, quick-release plastic buckles. Each side is flanked by identical secondary pouches, each of which measures approximately 9 inches by 5 inches and includes small storm flaps that are secured by another set of large, quick-release plastic buckles.

Though each rucksack appears to have been previously issued, they remain in good condition and ready to continue service. As they have been issued, some of the rucksacks show signs of wear and tear, with some even showing evidence of being repaired in the field by soldiers, which provides a unique historical aspect for those pieces.

An interesting aspect regarding the German alpine rucksack is the fact that the NATO Stock Number (NSN) is printed on the interior pocket. An NSN is a 13-digit numerical code that identifies all standardized materials of supply that are recognized by NATO countries. The NSN for the German alpine rucksack is 8465-12-323-9348, which identifies it as a feldgepaeck, or what I assume translates loosely to "field pack." The "8465" identifies it as a piece of individual equipment in a category that includes an array of packs and bags while the "12" signifies that the piece is from Germany. The remaining digits signify its item number.

The German Alpine Rucksack makes a fantastic day bag. It's similar to the US military duffel bag in terms of utilizing a waterproof bucket style system but on a smaller scale. This rucksack is about the same size as a medium ALICE pack but lighter when it

Like it alot
Just a quick clean up and hang dry and this bag is ready to go. Took it for a test load out and yes it will in the dead of summer make you sweat BUT I don't hike then! Its a great and CHEAP 30 L bag for day hikes and over-nighters. Bag has no damage at all and looks like it could survive the worse that you could throw at it.

Quality ruck at a great price
Mine arrived very quickly and in great shape. It is used but mine seems barely broken in. This a great pack for day trips or longer term camping. I also use mine as my get home bag and keep it in my truck. There is plenty of room in this pack. The rubberized liner helps keep everything dry and I suppose could be used to carry water in an emergency. If you are on the fence about this just get it, you won't be disappointed with your purchase.

Great ready to use rucksack
Size is perfect for 3+ days, condition is great, straps are good. Thsee are the real deal not one of the crappy "military style" ones that are all over the market and cost more. Your defiantly getting more pack than the asking price.
