Genuine issue Soviet Veshmoshok rucksack, water bottle, with pouch and mess kit.

Issued to Soviet troops and used during the Soviet/Afghan war and up to the mid 1990's, the Veshmoshok is a very simple but tough, canvas rucksack with 1 x main compartment and 1 x small pocket on the front. The top of the sack closes with a drawstring and the main strap wraps around the top of the bag to form the shoulder straps. Capacity is very approximately 25 - 30 litres.

Also included is a standard Soviet issue metal water bottle, with belt pouch and a 2 piece mess kit, based on the WW-2 German design.

Please don’t forget to check out my other items; I will be listing lots of other rare and unusual items for sale in the next few weeks.

Payment by PayPal only please.

I will dispatch within three working days of receiving payment, using Royal Mail. A signature will usually be required on delivery.

The quoted UK postage cost is to the UK MAINLAND (if you are not on the mainland UK, i.e. The Highlands or Islands, then please contact me for postage costs).

Overseas postage will be by Royal Mail “Airmail Small Packet” (no tracking) or “International Signed For” (with some tracking), depending on the value of the item.

If you are outside the regions listed then please contact me; I will post to most countries.

The price of postage includes insurance based on the estimated value of the item.

I will also combine P&P; you can either ask for an invoice for multiple purchases or, if you pay in full, I will credit any difference. I will always try to use the best value postal service available, but, depending on the weight, it may still be cheaper to post heavy items separately. Overseas postage on items over 2kg is prohibitively expensive so if I don’t offer international shipping on an item, its weight is probably the reason

If there are any problems I will always work to try to find a resolution, but please note that I do not generally accept returns unless I have made an error.

If you have any questions please feel free to contact me; I will attempt to answer the same day (usually in the evenings). I am also happy to send more pictures.

If, for any reason, you can’t pay within 7 days, please contact me. I’m happy to be flexible but, for my protection, I will open an “Unpaid item case” if I don’t hear from you within this time.

Thank you.
