Good quality bag, can be used as a hand bag to store all your needs. a military bag from Russia for 5 bucks! Can't go wrong. Cheers
I couldn't believe the quality of this bag when it arrived. A bit rough around the edges, but what more can you expect from the Russians ;) I actually bought two--one for my brother and one for myself. Now we can waltz around wearing "handbags" and not feel like ladies. We are HARD RUSSIAN SOLDIERS! Good place to keep my various face and hand creams, too... But without judgment!
for 5 dollars this is a bloody fantastic bag it has many uses that make it really handy
Bought as a cheap extra, but I use it everyday on dog walks :) Very handy and easily adapted to suit.
Got one to use as a man bag while my hand is in plaster (halving my pocket space).
Has plenty of room for all my pocket junk, seems well constructed.
