Swiss Military Bag

Switzerland is generally known for two things: neutrality and precision crafted watches. Officially known as the Swiss Confederation, Switzerland is a federal republic with a long history of neutrality. It has not been in a state of war internationally since 1815 and didn’t join the United Nations until 2002.


But enough about their foreign policy, on to the watches – or more specifically the craftsmanship they convey. Switzerland has long been recognized for their fine timepieces. However, that is not their only product that displays the high quality artistry they have come to be known for. Available now from Keepshooting.com is the Swiss military bag, a fine example of Swiss craftsmanship.


Now you can prepare for the best – or the worst – with these used military surplus bags. Each bag is generously sized and includes interior pockets to ensure the space you need when putting together a medical kit, range bag, lunch box or just about anything else.


As usual, we have saved the best part for last. These bags are being offered for the ludicrously low price of $3.50! We are practically giving them away, so act fast.

Dating back to the 1970s, these Swiss military gas mask bags were originally produced for the Swiss Armed Forces as – you guessed it – gas mask carrying bags. They are military surplus items that have been issued, but are generally in good condition. Surprisingly, many of the bags come with individual service tags, which identify the soldier of issue by name – great for those who prefer items with a bit of personal history.

Each bag is constructed from rubber vinyl, which is not only tough but resistant to water as well. Whatever you choose to store in this spacious bag will stay dry. When closed, they measure approximately 12-inches long, 8-inches high and 4-inches wide. The interior of the bag is lined with mesh and also includes two pockets featuring Velcro® closure. One pocket runs the entire 12-inch length of the bag while the other is located on the 4-inch sidewall and is perfect for carrying pens, pencils and other small items. There is also a small pouch sewn into the bottom of the bag. The exterior of the bag features a snap fastener closure and several d-rings that make attaching a shoulder strap and additional gear simple.

The Swiss used these bags for carrying gas masks and filters, but you can use them as a multi-purpose bag for virtually anything. It is an ideal choice for use as:

- Travel bags – Store your toiletries and other travel essentials when away from home

- Medical kits – Put together a medical kit with medicine, ointments, bandages and other items useful in emergency situations

- Lunch bags – Carry your lunch to work in style as this bag will easily house a good sized lunch

- Range bags – Fill it with ammunition, magazines, optics, safety glasses and just about anything else you need at the shooting range

- Roadside assistance bags – Keep this bag in your vehicle stocked with road flares, small tools, batteries, rope and anything else useful in an emergency situation

- Almost anything!

Have we mentioned the price – $3.50? These bags won’t be around for long – order now!

Great bag! There are so many uses for this bag you can't count them. Quality is awesome! The rubberized material is great for keeping the moisture and wet at bay. I use mine as a small truck medical bag. I will be ordering several more. Review by Daryl (Posted on 9/4/2015)

If you have the Russian gas mask, it fits great in this carrier. I replaced the cotton bags the Russian mask came in with these as they are easier to unsnap and get the mask out than unbuttoning the Russian one and the straps are more comfortable and more secure. Review by don (Posted on 9/1/2015)

Purchased two of these. Planning on using one as an IFAK. Nice sturdy rubberized material seems like it will hold up well over the years with the added benefit of water resistant. I wouldn't call this waterproof, but I would consider it weatherproof. If you were to dunk it the contents would get wet. I think if this was clipped to the outside of a pack, even during a downpour the contents would stay dry. Only time will tell. For the price simply can't be beat. Will be adding a few more to my next order. Review by josh (Posted on 8/16/2015)

This little bag is great for holding toiletries when hiking/camping. With the strap and D-rings, you can easily attach it to the outside of a pack, a belt or any number of other carry configurations. It's also small enough to go inside a pack as well while keeping your "essentials" in place. At less than $4, you should order several - I did. Review by Josh (Posted on 7/30/2015)

I have a dozen of these. Most are tool bags for wrenches, etc. A couple are strapped onto backpacks to hold fire & toiletry items. They stink but set them out in the sun for a few days to remove much of the odor. Review by Rob (Posted on 3/26/2015)

So I love my swiss army knife...I bought 10 of the 60 L Swiss army water carrier bags here and they were fantastic quality. Now I get 8 of these bags and they are perfect size kit bags for my bug out bags and make it easy to organize everything. I did one for medical kit, one for the LI battery pack on my ebike, one for my ham radio transceiver with charger and spare battery, one for my esbit stove with fuel tabs, windscreen and nesting cup set. Super good quality but you have to wash them to get rid of the typical mil surplus smell...twice. Review by Randy (Posted on 12/18/2014)

Utilitarian waterproof Gas Mask bag
Price

Tons of uses for this little bag. Its made of the ubiquitous rubberized vinyl the Swiss use for their packs. It has an adjustable shoulder strap or you can remove it and attach to something using any of the 5 D rings. It also has a small button connected strap for slipping through loop type connections.

The inside back has a flush velcro compartment for some papers or flat items. There is also a small flap at the bottom for keeping something flush to the bottom (a stiffener?).

Anyways, these are great for external use, or for grouping gear in a waterproof container inside something else (pack, etc.)

Odd little bag
Quality
Price

This is an odd little bag with a carry strap included. Bag is used but tough. 100's of uses. Might be an old gas mask bag, don't know for sure. It can hold ammo, several pistols, rifle scopes, knives, tools, magazines, just nothing real big. even being well used, still a lot of life left in these little bags. Can't beat the price. plenty of D-rings to hook onto a back-pack. Would make a great storage bag to store away pistols in your gun safe.
Only reason I give 4 stars for quality is that they are used bag. Included carry strap can be removed and used on something else, that cool.

Actually brought my lunch in this today. The bag is well constructed. There is one strap, sewed on one end and buttoned at the other. Mine also came with a longer carry strap that clips to the D-rings. Very cool piece of history. Review by Richard (Posted on 12/20/2013)

I ended up keeping fishing reels in one of mine. These are great little bags for keeping odds and ends in. As stated in other reviews they have straps that allow you to attach the bags to other items, kind of similar to the MOLLE system but way before the MOLLE system. The straps are attached to the bag permanently on one end and button on the other. Review by Jason (Posted on 11/19/2013)
