I recently bought one of these great bags from another supplier selling them as a "Dutch airforce haversack". This exact bag was also used in the Netherlands armed forces, both Army and Airforce. I do hope more become available at some stage, so others can enjoy them! Anyone looking for the pinnacle of quality in an army surplus shoulder bag, should definitely look to find one of these as they are truly amazing! The thickest, most durable canvas, solid blackened brass hardware and a build quality that is second to none! This is what quality looks and feels like! In a world saturated with style name brands, labels that are made purely for the name they carry and zero real quality, Army surplus items truly put them all to shame! It would be so nice if commercial brands used army quality as a benchmark with which to learn how to make quality, lasting, durable goods! This is now the ONE bag I will ever carry with me every day! My search is over. Best bag ever! Hunt one down and buy one!
Got my jacket shipped to Canada, and it only took a few days. Perfect condition. Even has a Yorkshire Regt flash on it which is a big bonus. Very impressed
Fits great and was in good shape - is truly better in person than in photos - only one problem- my son will absolutely snake it from my closet when I am at work - thanks
The cap itself is nice. The earflaps only come halfway from the back to the side of the neck. If you have your ears on the back of your head they'll work, if not I guess you could use the flap to shade your neck from the sun.
Personally, it is my favorite vest if it is right size for me. Capacity is, I believe, twice more than Ciras, if you understand this Osprey Mk4. EVA inner panel is required.
Bought this as soon as the Batman movie came out, glad I did bc it’s sold out now. Most genuine mask I’ve found yet, despite getting for that reason it’s definitely super comfortable and I will definitely be using this in the mountains because it keeps your face super warm. Great product love it!
One of my favorite pairs of pants I own. I bought mine elsewhere, but I can personally vouch for them. Relatively lightweight, comfortable, and doesn't make your legs sweat profusely in warmer weather.
Shovel is in great condition. Some paint missing on edges, but no chips or dents. Wood Handle is good, no gouges or deep scratches. East German equipment is getting harder to find and becoming very collectible. Pouch is very nice, provides lots of protection for the shovel. Hang it on your belt when camping or toss it in your car trunk for emergencies. This is a great deal.
I've had so many pairs of these shorts over the years and they are great, hard wearing and comfortable. I used to live in the UK and wore these ALL summer long, I then moved to Texas and wore them all YEAR long. These shorts are hard to come by in the States, but I am so glad I found them for sale in NZ of all places, at a great price and shipping is cheaper than ordering from back home. I just ordered another pair before Army and Outdoors sells out of them. Cheers guys!
I ordered this plus four more magazine pouches. Everything looks new to only lightly used. I like the rear pack to be mounted up between the shoulder blades..... from the location of a stabilizing loop on the pack, it appears to go there. I would recommend this to anyone!
(And, based on this, I would not hesitate ordering the rucksack!)
I ordered this along with 4 more G3 magazine pouches. I was AMAZED when I opened the package...... everything was brand new!!! After a bit, I got it all pieced together and adjusted. I determined that I like the pack attached between the shoulder blades. It appears to be made to go that way due to where the loop with a snap is placed. Altogether and loaded, it distributes the weight very nicely.
I would highly recommend!
Very comfy! Fair condition. Knees were faded and groin had repairs done to it. But this is a used product so still 5 stars
For surplus this was great condition. Nothing needed or revived repair. Slightly faded but overall great condition
Amazing!!! Everything was in amazing condition! Love the way it sets up. Main pack was very large and can hold lots of stuff.
Near new condition! Great space and pockets. Main pocket is big enough to fix about 3 stacked mres. Side pockets can hold a German canteen. Love this thing!!!
