Here's what we like to carry in our Swedish Rucksack's when we go out in the field:
That sounds like a good start for a bug-out-bag, doesn't it?
|Manufacturer||Swedish Army Surplus|
I bought this item used, once I received it the only part that I could tell that was used is the frame. It has a few scuff but they may even be from storage. My is dated 1984. I would definitely buy another. I ordered the Swedish combat harness as well so I can sew the pouches on the side of the pack for more organized storage. Get both while you can!!
My pack was received in fantastic shape. The bag itself looked like new and is a nice, quality material. The frame was in excellent shape with only a few scrapes in the paint. No big deal to me. Pack is comfortable and I plan an adding an ALICE pack waist belt for added support when needed. Pack has great potential for mods and I appreciate the straightforward styling and simple, rugged design.
Received this pack, it appears to be very, very slightly used if at all. Waterproof lining with 35L of capacity, metal external frame which is well made. Shoulder straps are of good, sturdy construction with webbing across the frame to keep the pack away from your back. Plenty of room inside which opens wide at the top. Room for a lot of stuff for whatever you use it for. Long adjustable straps on the top for securing wet clothes or anything. Worth the money and a very useful size.
This is an outstanding pack! It makes a great foundation for a lifetime bushcraft pack! It is lined with vinyl and is waterproof, has a big pocket inside for a shelter or bladder and has replaceable straps! Its a great pack to start with, but is easily modified to suit your needs!
Mine is in near excellent condition. A few scrapes on bottom of frame. Yeah, I'm ordering another one soon!
This rucksack exceeded my expectations. I've already received numerous compliments and questions as to where I'd purchased the bag. The quality of this bag beats anything I've come across at my local surplus stores hands down; it's worth at least three times the amount I bought it for.
okay always wants a nice rucksack but never could find a good one i could afford until now typical patches and what not but i love the used look gives it personality nice all the way around can't wait to go backpacking and try it out
Recommended to friends and family. For a pack this quality and size with an external frame at this price is an unbeatable purchase. I will use mine for camping. I was originally going to have this to give to friends when they camp with me but Im going to use it myself.
I love this backpack for its simplicity compared to an ALICE pack with frame. Looking forwards to using it in the field. Get one before the supply ends.
Simple design, kind of '60s style external frame pack without a waist belt. While not designed for heavy loads, there is plenty of space and weight capacity for overnight trips or longer if gear is chosen carefully. Lack of waist belt will bother some folks but since the belts sometimes bother my hips, it is not a problem as long as I keep the weight reasonable. Adding a Molle type belt and even upgrading the shoulder straps should not be too difficult if deemed necessary. Simple, rugged...within its limits, it works very well.
The other rucksacks in this LK group have belts, but this one didn't. And that's a shame, since it is a good pack and it would be better with a belt. So I got a MOLLE II belt for under $10 and attached it. Presto! This can carry serious stuff now, inside and out, and it feels like part of my body. I was going to put MOLLE straps on but it's not necessary now.
The rucksack arrived quickly and well packed. The rucksack I received is in like new condition except for some scratches on the frame. I think this is probably the most practical military surplus pack available for hiking and woodcraft activities, nice forest green color, good size and very comfortable to carry light to moderately heavy loads. I don't think it would be possible to ever wear out one of these rucksacks. I glad I was able to get my hands on this great piece of gear before the supply dried up.
I am not a fan of external frame packs having just given away my large US alice pack. However, for the price I could not pass this one up. Very nice bag for a very fair price! Mine appeared to be in new un-issued condition. A cool piece if you like the external frame style. durable straps and the rubberized top is a nice touch for waterproofing. Thanks Keep Shooting!
Ordered 3 so far and will definitely order more. It will hold plenty of gear internally plus you can strap bedrolls or whatever on the top or bottom. Quality construction and very comfortable. You can stitch on side pockets and increase the versatility. The loop under the top flap and compression strap at the bottom are perfect for carrying a small axe.
I have one and will order another for my wife. They make excellent backpacks for camping and hiking. Look to be unused!
Very nice sturdy pack with steel frame. The two I ordered appear unissued..
Mine arrived two days after I placed my order. Great pack just as I wanted. One issue though: in the picture it shows a cordura nylon pack which has a rough texture to it. The one I received is the waterproofed canvas. Not a problem though I love it its in pretty much new condition except for a couple scratches on the frame and that stored forever surplus smell.
Nice pack. Well built and light. Mine looked like it was unissued. Grab one while you can!
Best bang for your buck w/ frame. Straps on top are excellent for holding gortex military sleep system in compression sack and tons of storage for a camping trip/ survival situation with inside pocket to keep things organized and fully adjustable straps- very comfortable when packed to the brim- if you get the chance, buy at least one.
nice pack, good size. well built, not heavy. good for a 2 or 3 day trip. only thing I would think will make it better is a sternum strap to distribute the weight better.
Very nice pack, good size (day trip/over nighter) well built, not heavy.
Ever since I have had this bag, it has been my main bug out bag. You can beat it. Great bag if you are tight on cash also.
After a lot of thought I ordered the bag just hoping for the best, I'm glad I did. Well worth the price and value, upon arrival I took it a part and threw it in the washer came out looking new. Definitely ordering another.
This has to be the best deal anywhere for a rucksack and frame. Incredibly well made. It is much better than I expected. Perfect size and very well thought out. I am sure these will go real fast. Get it while you can. Where else are you going to get something like this for less than $20.00?
I needed a new medium sized pack and ordered one of these after others told me about them. When it got to me I was so impressed that I ordered another for my son. Cant beat the quality or the price!
WORTH 3X THE PRICE/NICE FRAME
This was more than I expected. It arrived in record time. I do a lot of traveling different places and hiking for enjoyment. I can't wait to use this on my next getaway.
