It’s a bit stiff after my thorough cleaning, sanitizing and deodorizing process, but it does soften with wear. I had to spirit one away for me (as naturally I would!) and I really, really like it. I've taken it on several travel adventures and it passed with flying colors as an awesome bag!! I use it as my every day bag as well, so I can surely tout its virtues!
Like the other vintage military bags, it’s easy to wash when it gets dirty. Mild soap, no soaking, shape the bag & let dry!
~ 12”w x 9”h x 3.5”d
~ Large flap with 2 buckle closure (the buckles aren’t really necessary since the flap is so large.) But they look great!
~ 47” comfy, wide adjustable shoulder strap – can be carried cross body
~ Large main compartment
~ 3 interior pockets – all decent sized!
~ Sturdy, heavyweight linen fabric

My vintage military bags have been thoroughly cleaned, sanitized and deodorized. I even press them so they look nice! It’s very time consuming (and really no fun at all!) but I would want nothing less than CLEAN in a bag I purchased. Yes, I am a geek about these bags! But with any vintage military...there may be an ever so tiny scent - generally ones with leather (minor, and it will go away with time.) Most find it negligible or nonexistent and are amazed at how wonderfully clean my military bags are!!
