We’re not sure what the Czechs used these bags to carry, but we believe that that are a 1940’s to 1950’s style bag. They have a nice elongated shape which would be ideal for carrying documents, books or tablets. The bags are a brownish green cotton canvas with a nice wide adjustable shoulder strap. Three inner compartments. To close the bag are two old fashioned wooden toggles. Measures 10” x 11” x 3 ½”. Used, nice condition.

    Nice bag, in great condition. No holes. A couple of small stains. The usual musty smell of storage, but airs out easily. Good buy for less than $7.

    Love this bag. Just the right size to carry a couple of water bottles in their own compartments and you still have another larger compartment to carry a shirt or magazines. The strap works either across your chest or on your shoulder. I use mine when riding my motorcycle.

    Stiff with that surplus smell but it is just like new. After the bag showed up I became obsessed with what the bag was used for because mine has two wooden blocks in the bottom of one side. Found out it’s a gas mask bag, the wooden blocks help support the large metal canister and the other compartment stores the mask and tube. I’m using it for a camping sack to carry some of my more important items. Really couldn’t be happier.

    Well made and great condition, the strap is short for my taste but a good value on sale.

    It’s a nice little bag that was a great inexpensive item I impulsively added onto my order. The strap system is nice. with the shoulder strap and belt strap around your chest it stays in place nicely. I haven’t decided what to carry in it yet, ammo or other supplies. It’s a good secure bag to walk through the woods with. a great addition to my woodcraft kit. There was a small snap button pouch in the middle divider that was a little rusted shut but with some elbow grease I unsnapped it. Inside was a small tin that the pouch was certainly purpose built for. the tin contained a pungent waxy substance that appeared to be wrapped in paper. I discarded the substance and cleaned the tin. Its small but might be able to contain some shortened matchsticks, pills, or something. I was unable to find out what exactly the substance was or what it was used for. Pretty sure from google research, and one other reviewer has came to the same conclusion, that this is a gasmask bag. perhaps the tin contained some sort of defogging or sealing wax. either way it was pungent and probably rancid and useless so I trashed it. Anyway It’s a good buy and will come to good use I am sure.

    Just received mine today. It looks like it was never used with the exception of a small stain, which may wash off, on the top. No rust, frayed edges, musty surplus smell or chipped paint on the metal clasps. As stated in other reviews mine also had the two wooden supports in the bottom of the large compartment and tucked into the small middle snap compartment is a small plastic/bakelite box containing a paper covered waxy square of something. No smell or marks on the box so I will research it further. There are a few marks stamped onto the inner flap but most of them can not be read. No marks on the exterior like the photo shows. All in all a very good buy that I’m happy with. Good products and fast service.

    Bought 2 of these bags and I’m glad I did….exactly what I was looking for. I also found a little black container in each, contents unknown….I’d be interested to find out what that is if anyone knows. Great Buy!!

    I love this bag, I’m glad I ordered 2. I like the fact that it can be opened and closed with one hand. I removed the divider that separates the large pocket, creating two full size pockets, which allows me to fit a couple of notebooks and my iPad. I only wish the strap was a bit longer; not a big deal though.

    This little bag is FULL of possibilities
    It holds the pathfinder kit and room left for food
    And 5 c kit
    It’s worth having a spare they are priced to move.

    I recently bought 5 of these handy little shoulder bags. 1 I use for my possibles bag for muzzleloading and the other 4 are great for day hikes. I do wish the this inside dividers went all the way to the bottom of the bag, but that’s only something I’ll get used too. The little pouch in one of the dividers is perfect for my caps and balls to rest in while there is a snap holder in the other section of the pouch that holds my colt replica revolver nicely. All in alll for the price you really could never be unhappy with this purchase. Pick em up before there gone I say!!!!!

    Not a bad bag for the price. A little stiff, but no musty smell. The snap on the inside is rusted to the point I can’ open it. I will have to drill it out and replace it.
