This is Danish army surplus from 1950s. This bag is made of very strong cotton canvas. Comes with adjustable straps for use as a backpack. Bag has no inside dividers, as was normal for this kind of bag. Bag is in excellent vintage condition. Bag has metal buckles. This bag has a lot of character and will outlast you. Good for another 50-60 years. Get it while you can, there aren't many like this left.

This listing has photos of the model of bag I am selling, but not necessarily the specific bag, since I'm selling a few of these bags I can't put photos of each bag in the listing. All bags are in similar condition though, with working buckles, straps and without holes or tears. Some may have slightly different markings but all are Danish and from the 1950s. please send me a message if you would like to see photos of the individual bag being sold. ASKING $65 SHIPPED IN CANADA OR USA.

Length: 16 inches
Width: 6 inches
Height: 14 inches
Strap drop (for messenger bag strap): 23 inches
