Messenger Bag.

Quality item, great price and prompt delivery. I have waxed the canvas which has enhanced the appearance as well as giving the bag some water protection. My sister came for a visit and liked the bag so much it left my house with her! Going to order another one for my self.

Vintage East European Canvas Messenger Bag - Great value

Food this bag on Google and just what I needed. Great value repurposed NOS ex military bag.
Prompt delivery. What more is there to say.

Class item

Just received my bag this morning and am delighted. It seems entirely unused - long years of storage have left the buckles a little rusty, but that can be addressed. The canvas is so new it is still stiff. Best of all there are still three leather straps on the bag - a large one on the front and 2 smaller ones on the top. Compare and contrast this with other cheese-paring surplus shops who whip these off and sell them separately. And it was a very good price in the first place. Thank you GoArmy, well pleased.
