Nice and basic, but thats sometimes the best way!
Made of cotton duck so it keeps your stuff dry! This does have an unfortunate tendency to stiffen up when it gets wets but ive had mine since 2005 and it hasnt leaked yet!!!
It can be a bit confusing figuring out how to tie it. If this is any help, what you need to do is to loop the strap around the neck of the bag, then thread it under the strap and put the loop over the now-bunched-up neck of the bag and pull tight!!
Also comes with straps on the side that Russian soldiers used to use for keeping their spare boots in back in the days of high jackboots in the Great Patriotic War, nowadays many soldiers use this for the plasch-pilatka, some simply cut them off!
Also, there is a little pocket on the back for those small essentials, and a little plastic window for a name label
OK if you dont need to transport big loads!!!!

this works great as a regular backpack (civvies), and if you're on a mission. Put a messkit in here, extra pair of undergarments and even another uniform using the outside straps.

Actually, the straps on the side could be used for a part of a tent, or used to carry tools suck as a hammer or an ax.

Sides are meant to wrap a plasch palatka (poncho/tent) around with blankets.

I should buy one or two of these for the movie. Roll up some camo netting instead of blankets. Easy way to bring camo netting around for ambushes.

I forgot to do a review on this backpack, since I received mine quite a while ago. I have to say, it's AWESOME. Pretty tough, can handle heavy loads (My Ushanka, 3 liters of water and my books and other supplies). No signs of degradation yet, as I use it on a daily basis as my school and personal bag. I will get another one to put my emergency supplies (canned goods, rations and other stuff) in.
