Military backpacks and rucksacks have always been popular ever since the first batch of military surplus packs were released. Soldiers who served in war using what later became surplus packs were able to tell stories about how good or bad their military issued backpacks were. The quality backpacks quickly developed a reputation from their military service and became highly sought after when they were sold as surplus.
With military backpacks ranging from small day packs to giant rucksacks like this Italian Army rucksack there is literally a bag for every scenario. In the case of this Italian Army rucksack, it is THE bag for every scenario. This rucksack is capable of expanding to hold a larger volume, or you can use the compression style straps to cinch the bag down to a smaller size. With the included two Molle attached small pouches you can increase the amount of external storage and best of all they are water resistant designed just like the main bag itself. You will not find a single scenario where this bag wouldn't be appropriate for hauling your essential gear and doing so comfortably and efficiently.
When looking at a new military rucksack you shouldn't just consider the storage capacity but should also consider the features. This Italian Army Rucksack is packed full of features that make it a clear winner. First and foremost is the comfort enhancing features that include adjustable padded shoulder straps and waist padding that make even the heaviest loads feel light and manageable. Secondly the type, configuration, and layout of the storage compartments is a key consideration. This rucksack has storage for every type of gear including a lanyard style setup in one of the top pockets for keys. No other military rucksack has this amount of storage options. Third and final consideration should be how the pack looks and this pack has a very unique and distinctive look. With the use of Italian Vegetato camouflage you can be virtually guaranteed no one will have a bag that is identical to your own.

The Italian Army Vegetato Rucksack is a great large bag. The quality of the materials and stitching is top notch. If you really want a good look at the ruck, head on over to:
The Outdoor Gear Review on youtube: for a lot more detail than I could provide on this post.
They have this ruck listed as used but the folks at Keep Shooting sent me a bran new one. Pretty good deal and fast shipping as always from Keep Shooting.
This pack is new tags still on it! Great value, very strong durable & well designed & constructed. only negative is it is heavy, but it is not going to break & is comfortable. Made very expensively & well designed.
My ruck arrived very fast, and appears to be un-issued. came with 2 sustainment pouches that also appeared to be un-issued. It's well made and has tons of room. Much more than my old Large ALICE ruck. Shoulder straps are well padded as is the back of the ruck. All in all it's a great deal on a high quality ruck.
This may just be the best deal ever !! I have Osprey 48L and 85L , a Gregory 65L , a Kelty Redwing 50L , a Granite Gear Leopard 58L , two Surplus alice packs , two Camelback hydration packs 1 and 3 L bladder , 2 Source packs made in Israel 20-30 L . And this MAY be the best pack I have ever seen . The one I received I don't think was ever issued . If it was , it saw very, very , little use !! Ya want a B.O.B ? Ya want a Bomber 90L pack that may never die ? Ya want probably the best ( or some of ) material and zipper's on a pack ? Zombie hoards :) , WWlll god forbid ? This is the pack !!! Shoulder straps and hip belt are X-tra thick and feel GREAT !!! Room for ALL the reasonable gear you will ever need . This pack is a Goody !!!!!!!!!!
What can I say? This bag is insanely cool! I have a need for a large bag as I have a little girl and need a bag that can handle lots of gear. I have yet to try it out fully loaded, but just trying it on empty I can tell it's going to work out well. This thing appears barely used and the materials are bomber. I've got a Kelty Redcloud 6400, and this bag is far more comfortable. Keep Shooting always has killer finds and I will definitely be a soon returning customer. Keep up the good work guys!!!
I'll try to remember to write another review after its maiden voyage.
An awesome value for a great product. Opened it up and found 2 molle bags and a large assortment of extra strapping. Holds everything from my tent, sleeping bag plus everything else you'd want in a BOB, and then some. of course, will make an excellent camping/hiking pack as well. Ultra comfortable, straps fit well, and for a "big" guy, that's hard to find.
The pictures do not do this justice, this is a really nice quality bag. It is well thought out and really doesn't feel that heavy, it has some pretty ingenious storage designs and the side panels are pleated to expand if needed but to make the pack thinner if not in use,the bottom sleeping bag area expands so if you wanted to throw an mss system in there you could but limiting pack space. The hood is really nice and has multiple ares to organize things. I love it. This one is now my favorite pack and has turned into my primary BOB.i couldn't find this anywhere. Thanks KS
