Title: Top loading Modded Gas Mask Bags - A Military Spec Surplus Bushcraft exclusive.
Post by: Wilderbeast on January 11, 2014, 01:46:41 PM
I just had a bunch of USGI M-40 gas mask bags modified by professional seamstresses in a factory that does military contract sewing. 

The former front loader shoulder strap was carefully removed, that seam and the strap were re-sewn on the other side of the bag.  The front loader is now a top loading USGI Gas Mask Murse.

I'm selling these for $14.99 shipped in the USA, Here are a few pictures;

Thanks.

I forgot to mention that the waist strap is still attached and worked great to keep the murse from swinging in the breeze. 


It'll also stymie a murse snatcher while used in an urban setting.  8)

Beast,

That was a genius idea! 

I've had a couple of those gas mask bags, and always thought something like that would be a great mod, but I suck at sewing... 

Very cool.

  WB, you would have saved me some frustration had you had these for sale back when I bought 3 of these that were un modded prior to purchase. I modded two of them myself using a sewing machine & I am not so good at sewing. They are usable though and my oldest son & I use them relatively often. But, I sure would have liked to have had them made by a pro,since at this price they are a bargain.
 :thumbsup:


   They are very handy for short or "minimalist" trips & I would recommend these professionally modded ones to anyone, particularly at such a reasonable price.  They sure look better than my "home made" modifications, and the price is "super!" for what ya get!
 :)


Get yours today! while he still has some on hand...
 ;)

Doesn't look like the 'beast has checked in since the middle of December, but MnSportsman has his email address and should be able to draw his attention to your query.  Send him a PM.....I'll bet he'll give you a hand. :thumbsup:

Looks like I have Wilderbeast's email address, too..... michaeldubroff@msn.com

That a great mod...and those are really a heavy duty bag.....great combination.

Have use two for many years with out mods....
One truck....... bag for various 12ga ammo.....Fits under from seat.
The other is..... a "Bag o' Bungees/and straps".....carried in the truck as well.

The mods would allow ease of carry....and opens up all sorts of uses of a great little bag.
