Italian San Marco Back Pack, the Other Italian Ruck
« on: March 22, 2014, 09:48:34 AM »


Rugged Italian San Marco Troop Backpack. Canvas construction, 2 big outer pockets, attached backpack straps. Used in good condition. Measures 20" x 16" x 14".

These are quite a bit larger than the smaller canvas Italian rucksack, close to the volume of a large Alice.  They will swallow a lot of gear.

These do not have a frame of any kind, internal or external.  They do come with that wonderful surplus musty smell, no extra charge  O:-)

I think they'll clean up real nice.


$20 each plus shipping

Upon this a question arises: whether it be better to be loved than feared or feared than loved? One should wish to be both, but, because it is difficult to unite them in one person, it is much safer to be feared than loved.

That is the EXACT pack I've been using for the last 30+ years to haul crap forth & back from my deer blind.  I've also used it on BWCAW trips for stuff we need 'right away' like flashlight, ponchos, rain fly, skeeter dope, lunch, etc......saves loading & unloading the big #3 Duluth packs all the time.

Only 30+ years  >:D, so how much longer until they earn the Wolfy Seal of Approval?  :)

I checked my records (such as they are) and it only shows it listed as "Big ruck".  But I think that was it.
