Small vintage utility military bag made in rugged canvas cotton that is soft to the touch. Roomy main storage area and flap-top cover keeps your gear secure. Streamlined profile is great for small day trips and when you're on the go.

Review: I received this bag as a Christmas gift. It is the olive drab color which appears a little darker than pictured but is very nice.
Overall the bag appears to be made of a nice heavy duty canvas material. All seams are stitched and not glued.
The logo is printed on and looks very nice. I can not comment as to how it will hold up over time but it looks good so far!
The two straps at the bottom of the bag are purely decorative. The flap fastens shut with two pieces of velcro which are stitched on.
The shoulder strap appears to be pretty heavy duty and is adjustable via a metal clasp.
Where the bag tends to disappoint a bit is in the storage pockets.
The description states their are 9 pockets. I count only 7.

You get one large compartment which can hold a kindle, iPad and additional items. The flap covers this pocket and there is not additional zipper or fasterner to keep it closed. An extra pocket or two inside this one would be a welcome addition. perhaps a nice zippered pocket to hold your credit cards etc.

On the outside of this pocket you get a large zippered pocket. The zipper is vertical and the pocket is roughly 7 1/2 inches wide by 7 deep.
Stitched to the outside of this pocket is a pocket roughly 6 1/2 by 5 1/2 inches. This pocket has no way to fasten shut so I'd be a little worried that items might fall out. A zipper, snap or velcro would have been nice.
Stitched inside this pocket is another smaller compartment. This compartment is very small and I'm not sure what you would use it for. It might hold a lipstick but I think you would have trouble fishing it back out once you dropped it in.
Stitched to the outside of the 6 inch pocket is another smaller pocket. It is roughly 4 1/2 inches deep by 2 1/2 wide.
Stitched on top of that pocket are two additional very small compartments. These might hold a pen or pencil but are so short that these items would no doubt fall out.
None of these pockets have zippers or fasteners of any type to protect your items (except the one zippered compartment mentioned above).
With a different pocket layout and some way to secure the pockets this bag could really shine.
Overall the bag appears to be good quality and looks great. I hope it holds up for years to come.
