Description

Large Military Backpack, Vintage Army Rucksack, Old Army Backpack, Vintage Canvas Backpack with Leather Straps, Big Military Green Rucksack
**********************************************************

This genuine unused military backpack is made from sturdy heavy duty canvas in army green shade. The leather shoulder straps are adjustable and wider on the shoulder for comfortable wearing. The bag is quite big and can hold a lot of your stuff in it, it also has a leather belt and a fabric pocket on one side where you can carry a big water bottle, a tripod or a paper storage tube for example. It closes with a cord on the inside and fastens with a leather strap with metallic buckle on the outside. It has a lot of small leather loops all over, on this loops the military equipment like helmet and tent were attached.

This type of military backpack was typically used in the Communist era by the Romanian army. My father still remembers them from the time when he had to do his military duty on the Black Sea Coast.

The authentic Romanian Army backpack is ideal for daily outdoor or urban use. The rucksack is very versatile, unisex and just looks fabulous fashionable for its age. The backpack is just cool and would make a perfect gift for him, for the traveler, for the person who loves hiking, camping and fishing.

**********************************************************
CONDITION: Very good vintage condition. These are vintage military bags deposited for long years so there may be a scent that I find negligible and that will go away with time. If you want your bag to smell like new you can wash it when you receive it. Being made of fabric it is really easy to wash. Some metal parts can have rust spots build up but all the parts are in working order.

Depending on the canvas bag, on the back of one of the leather straps there are stamps with date and place of the production: late 70's early 80's and another stamp with the word "ADMIS" - that means: valid - or passed the technical quality control.

DIMENSIONS:
Height: ~ 45 cm ( ~17.7 inches)
Wide: ~ 30 - 38 cm (~ 11.8 - 15 inches) - wider at the bottom
Deep: ~ 23 cm (~ 9 inches)
Weight: ~1.7 kg (~ 3.75 pounds)

Some minor variations from the item shown in the pictures can occur also, the stamp whit the date of production varies a bit or is not clearly visible on all bags, but they were all made late 70' or early 80'.

I do have the same bag available with 6 extra leather straps for attaching all your gear, matt, blanket, bottles, etc.. So take a look and decide wich one fits your need the best: https://www.etsy.com/listing/470979331/military-backpack-with-leather-straps?ref=shop_home_active_1

The shoulder straps did not fasten well to the back pack. I had to go to the hardware store to purchase rings to attache the straps at the bottom of the back pack. It worked out ok in the end but I would not have paid the price I did had I known there would be work and cost involved in fastening the straps securely.

Hello Karen,

I am sorry you did not contact me about how the straps get attached. The bag is designed to secure the straps in a certain way and to detach easily when needed. If you would have asked I could have explained it in detail, and also explain how you could easily fix this and secure them tightly with just a pair of pliers. The bags were designed for a military purpose, so quick and easy detaching was essential for this type of field gear.

I am sorry you had to work around this and did not simply send a message to me, as I am always here and gladly answer questions about the items I sell.
Best regards
Arabela

FAQs

Yes, no place is to far for us :)
All items are shipped with a tracking number that you will receive as soon as your product is handled over to the post. You will also receive a link where you can follow the parcel or can contact me anytime when you're in doubt.
As we send from Romania, we always try to send the items as quick as possible but we depend on the opening days of the custom office so it can take up to 5 working days till we can ship it. The normal shipping time to the US, after the package is handed over to the post, is somewhere around 2-3 weeks but given the long way around the world this can take up to 5-6 weeks in busy holiday times. (this happens almost just around Christmas)

Australia or other far, far away places will naturally take longer while Europe usually takes less.
We offer you an express shipping upgrade option (5-8 days delivery) and if you are really in a hurry just let me know to also adjust the handling time and hurry as much as possible.
Hm, maybe?! Just ask me and we will see! I do have a lot of items and can't post them as quick as I would like. I can also try finding something for you if you are not in a hurry.
I gladly accept returns and exchanges, just contact me within 14 days of delivery and ship the item back to me within 30 days of delivery. Buyers pay for the return shipping cost. Full refund ( excluding shipping cost) will be given when item arrives safely at my address .

Or, if shipping cost will be to high, how to just make someone a gift? I am sure you could surprise a loved one with a nice vintage item.
I always choose the lowest shipping option, but unfortunately overseas shipping is not the cheapest and there is nothing I can do about it. However, if you buy multiple items, I do combine shipping and as the cost is calculated per weight you could get a better deal on shipping cost for more than on item purchased in my shop.

I also refund overcharged shipping costs if something is wrongly estimated.
