Known to Korean War Veterans as a Pack, Field, Cargo, M-1945, this heavy duty cotton canvas pack was the predecessor to the butt pack carried in Vietnam. Made to be worn underneath and attached to the main combat backpack, the cargo packs were commonly used to carry shelter half tents, clothing, and personal items.

Complete with a top carry hand strap, dual steel pistol belt clips, and brass suspender "D" rings, this cargo pack can be carried in a variety of configurations.

Each M-1945 pack measures 18" long by 5.5" wide by 9.5" tall. An oversized storm flap lid cinches down with two heavy duty, 1" wide canvas straps that run around the front of the pack and across the lid.

Inside, the pack is complete with a rubber liner that helps keep moisture off of your gear.

Packs are in very good condition, but will show some signs of use or shelf wear due to being in storage for many years. As with all surplus items of this vintage, once they are gonethey are gone, so get yours today while our limited supply lasts.

"I bought two of these and was pleasantly surprised. They don't appear to have been issued, but definitely do show some shelf wear. Absolutely no tears or fraying seams, just minor general wear. These are very sturdy and will handle most any abuse you can put them through. The rubber inside is in great shape, not tacky or getting disgusting. I use mine just as a general tote bag to and from work. It easily holds a 1.4L thermos, a lunch, and several personal items. You could easily hold a change of clothing, etc as well. The bags have a little surplus smell, but nothing a handwashing didn't fix. If you like old US surplus, this would be a great bag for you!"

"Mine looks like it was issued today! Been in storage but in excellent condition and will provide YEARS of rugged service. Built to last and at my age - the nostalgia can't be beat. Gladly carry this to the range and into the field."
