    Those are great packs, they look convertable, and smarted up will be very swish.

    Are they comfy to use though?

    They are Romanian. Ever heard about the quality of the Romanian Armed Forces, historically up till now?

    If they were dodgy the Varusteleka staff would tell us with inimitable Finn humour.

    I sent a link to their site to my Auntie, not because I feel she needs Surplus, but because the humour reminded me so much of her.

    I do find their humour and honesty refreshing.

    Brilliant. :D

    “WHAT! The Romanian army rucksack was already vintage-inspired when it came out in some 70's. Today it will cause spontaneous soiling of the pants among the vintage fanatics, including us.”

    Nice pack that is, I’m hovering.

    Mine turned up. Really good quality. The leather needed feeding and the hooks repainting but apart from that it was in really good nick. The shoulder straps are set quite wide apart, so if you have narrow shoulders it might not be the best fit. Looking forward to trying it out at the weekend.
