German Flecktarn Combat Rucksack – Authentic German Military Issue Rucksack
German Flecktarn Combat Rucksack
The German Flecktarn Combat Rucksack is the main combat pack issued to soldiers in the German Army. This large rucksack features the unique German Flecktarn camouflage pattern that has become popular since it was first imported decades earlier.
The German Flecktarn Combat Rucksack is constructed almost entirely of water-resistant Cordura nylon. This synthetic fiber is known for extreme durability and resistance to abrasions, which make it a great choice for construction of packs like this one from the German Army. With any backpack but especially with large packs like this durability is essential. Cordura nylon construction will ensure that your pack holds all of your gear and does not fail when you need it most.
The carrying capacity of this back is enormous and it has been specially designed to maximize loading and carrying. With the main compartment you have both top and bottom access with a carefully designed opening. The bottom access point is achieved by exposing the covered zipper and unzipping the entire length of the bottom of the pack which will expose the bottom waterproof drawstring extension. You can quickly access gear that may have been loaded at the bottom of your pack without having to remove items that rest on top. For top access there is a buckle closed top flap that is designed to also offer three smaller external pockets that can be used to store essentials that you may need frequent access to.
This is a great bag. Well designed with plenty of space. Extra long straps on the top and middle which personally I love for being able to tie extras down. Large side compartments hold a lot of water. Small pockets tucked away all over as well as a large top section. Cinches up to seperate the bottom section from the middle. Some folks don't love the lack of frame but I find it really comfortable with my tarp folded up in the sleep mat pocket. Mine arrived in excellent condition, light use only evident from the braided excess straps. Seriously one of my best milsurp buys. Do it now before they're gone.
no visible wear on the pack at all and it is a good size bag and made well.if you are looking for a large pack you won't be sorry with this one.
Spacious and comfortable, definitely worth the price of admission.
Pack is next to new. Waist strap shows slight wear. A few very light scratches on a few buckles. Pack fabric looks brand new. No visible wear on bottom. Excellent overall condition. Maybe it was only used for a photo op & no actual real use. Mine has a 10/98 date. NATO number is also on label. This is the real deal & not a German "type" knock off. Great pack Keep Shooting!
BEST PACK I HAVE EVER HAD
I LOVE IT. ITS VERY WELL MADE. CANT BEAT IT FOR THE PRICE
BEST BUSHCRAFT PACK HANDS DOWN!
I got this pack for bushcrafting. It is by far the most ideal pack for this that I have ever used. The Germans are extremely clever designers.
You can see that in this german made pack at every angle. The features, are integrated seamlessly. It is very comfortably, can extend nice and tall, and has all the bells and whistles one could ask for.
Mine was like new. Beautiful pattern. Has slots at the bottom for blanket roll, comfy shoulder straps, ax slots in the side pockets, a rifle sling down the middle back, a slot inside the back of the pack for a folding mat or foam pad to prevent items from jabbing your back and give support, waterproof interior, stability belt which does help bare the load, genius side pockets that are quick access (no need for buckles and I love this).. The list goes on and on.
I found the perfect bushcraft pack (after much testing) and I'm in love. Condition is great, build quality is amazing. Holds a ton of kit.. And best of all, it only weighs 3.2 pounds! Amazingly lightweight for the build quality.
If I was wealthier I would buy two more at this price!
Superb Ruck At A Superb Price
I got this ruck specifically for a multi-day camping trip. It fitted all my gear with ample room to spare. I really like the adjust-ability and accessibility of its components. Mine appeared to be very lightly used, if used at all; more likely it was issued at the unit level, and sat in a supply room locker. I'm in the process of having Tactical Tailor change out the non-fastex buckles to fastex, and they're also making a closed-cell foam insert for the pocket where the original issue folding sleeping mat fit-it'll also double as a pillow, as well as providing structural rigidity when rucking. Keep Shooting was exceptional in their shipping of mine. It's a very well made ruck, and (as usual with Keep Shooting) a steal at the price.
Its of Great quality
I really want to like this pack alot but here are my Negatives:
Waist belt hits to high on my stomach and bugs me while hiking
I had to buy a plastic pack stiffener to make it useful in the field
The Positives: Big pack, plenty of pockets to stow things, Sleeping bag pocket good for a 3 season compression bag and even fits a US Army Patrol bag in the small compression sack, and it just looks cool!
Exactly as advertised
Great quality, I packed everything I needed for a week of camping. The main compartment is large and the bottom zipper worked well for easy access to rain gear. The side pockets are large and though only a flap enclosure, everything stayed in place. The shoulder straps and waist belt are thin but adequate. I added the sleeping pad which works very well to add support to the pack. It is simple, effective and tough. A good value for the price.
This pack goes well with the flecktarn camo smock, which look great. It will hold up for a while based on how it was made, and has lots and lots of storage places. Only downside was the price, but i got over that once i got it.
