Vietcong NVA Chicom rucksack

Product Description

Supplied by the Chinese to the NVA from the late 1950's onwards, the 3-pocket rucksack became the standard-issue load carrying pack for the North Vietnamese soldier throughout the Vietnam War.

Featuring a large main internal compartment with draw string closure, 1 large rear external pocket, 2 smaller side pockets, and adjustable shoulder straps, the Vietnamese-made copy of this design remains in use with the PAVN today.

This is an early-pattern (c 1960s) rucksack, manufactured in durable olive green canvas with cotton/nylon fastening straps and aluminium/steel buckle fastenings on the top flap and large rear external pocket. In worn & faded condition.
