Benin has had no shortage of internal & external conflict from varying political forces over the last century. The country also has a strong French connection - Benin came under administrative control by France up until the 1950s. It should be no surprise that some French camo influence has kept up with Benin's military equipment. These rucksacks covered in a French like 'lizard camo' have come brand new from our supplier in France. It would seem France is still supplying much gear to former French controlled Africa.

The quick and the dirty - these rucksacks seem to follow the rough format of what was going around in the 50/60s (think something like British 58 pattern). They sit quite high on your back designed to be worn above webbing, making them fairly uncomfortable to wear. Having said that, the bag itself seems dam robust made from thick cotton canvas so you might break before it will! There is one large main compartment with an internal sleeve for separating gear, accessed with a dual strap flap. Each side of the bag has a snap dome secured pouch for smaller gear, ideal for drink bottles particularly.  On the rear is also low profile pocket ideal for maps or documents.

Benin military gear is not exactly overflowing in the surplus market, let alone in brand new unissued condition. If you are a fan of French lizard camo or all things African history - grab a Benin rucksack today!
