German Flecktarn Haversack – Authentic German Military Surplus
German Flecktarn Haversack
"Haversack" is typically the name given to a backpack-style bag that features a single shoulder strap. These bags got their name from their original intention of carrying "havercake," a staple food made from oats and water that is baked into a biscuit.
As noted, each German flecktarn haversack offered by Keepshooting.com is an authentic German military surplus item. These haversacks were originally designed for and used by service men and women enlisted in the German heer, or army, which is one of the five service branches that makes up the Bundeswehr, or unified armed forces of Germany. Interestingly, these haversacks serve as a singular component of the German LKS load-bearing equipment system, which includes a variety of packs, pouches and holsters that are designed for attachment to the LKS webbing belt and is similar in nature to the United States' All-Purpose Lightweight Individual Carrying Equipment, or ALICE, system.

Flecktarn Camouflage Pattern

Most gas mask or haversack or musette or bread bags or similar bags are built to take some mistreatment and these adhere to that principle with zealousness. Not too big, not too small. Will fill many rolls very well. It can be attached to a belt with a adapter
This is a bag that can be used for many things!

You wont find a better bag "anywhere" for this price! In face you'll pay way more than $10.95 for one half as good as this one. I know, I've been searching and looking at different ones and the prices just turn me off! I could not fine anything wrong with the one I received, in fact it looked rather new. I made a good buy on this one, Thanks Keepshooting!

This bag really surprised me of its size when I received it: much bigger than I was anticipating. Now I understand why it was called a butt pack here and there. Aside from that, the bag is brand-spanking new and had a funky smell that has dissipated since being outside the sealed bag it came in.
It will serve me well whatever I decide to throw in it. Never saw a better price online anywhere for these. Very pleased!
my new lunch bag for riding
Review byEric Verified Buyer
Bought it for a new lunch bag while out riding trails. The bag is strong water resistant with drain holes. Good sized buckles and straps can hold stuff on top like a shirt rolled up or jacket . Inside 2 pockets can hold a bottle or can on each side. Of course the camo is good looking too.

I ordered 2. Really versatile accessory for storage and the strap makes it easy to grab in a hurry. Roomy, large enough for my lap top, weather resistant and plan to rig the pair for saddle bags on the trail bike.

Review byDon Verified Buyer
I bought 2 for a range bags, but the kids took them to use as purse's . So I had to order more, fantastic quality and very heavy nylon .And you got to love the price. Order while you can this Flecktarn camo is getting popular with the kids.
Review byyankee Verified Buyer
Seems to be sturdy and well constructed. Thickly rubberized on the inside. The smell was strong and not pleasant at first, but after letting it air out outside for a week most of the odor subsided. The shoulder strap stows without affecting the cover, but when the shoulder strap is in use it doesn't allow the cover to lay flat. Overall a nice looking bag that should hold up to whatever you throw in it.
Review byAdam Verified Buyer
Glad I ordered this. I love to bushcraft but don't have the time to go out as far as I would like as often as I'd like. This brings me to using a few different setups depending where I go. I use this for the sort couple of hour jaunt. I've set up with the alice adapters and use it on a belt. Very sturdy.
Good accessory bag for camping
Review byDavid Verified Buyer
This has become my accessory bag for camping. It replaced my old shaving kit bag from bootcamp that I was using before, as it was running out of room inside. I do like this better for a few other reasons. It has a carrying strap, it has more room (main reason for replacement), and it has a couple of extra compartments stitched into the interior to help keep my gear better organized.
Only thing I don't care much for is the stench it came with, as it smells like it sat next to something dead combined with a chemical overtone. Ive never smelled anything like it to be honest, and I hope it eventually fades.
Aside from the unpleasant odor its a great bag, and it will be getting used quite a bit on my camping trips. Get one if you are needing a water resistant bag with compartments inside, that's easy to tote around.
