This is Danish army surplus from the 1950s. The stamp inside the bag has faded too much to make out, but the stamp on one of the stamps is dated 1953. This bag is made of very strong cotton canvas. Comes with adjustable straps for use as a backpack, and also a shoulder strap for use as a messenger bag. Bag has no inside dividers, as was normal for this kind of bag. Bag is in excellent vintage condition, aside from a few stitches on the lower part of the front flap, and is clean. Bag has metal buckles. This bag has a lot of character and will outlast you. Good for another 50 years. Get it while you can, there aren't many like this left.

Width, height and length can depend on how the bag is packed, this is flexible canvas. Measurements were taken with the bag unpacked:

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