This backpack of the Federal Armed Forces Germany is a solid and sturdy bag with two outside pockets designed for regular military service. Padded shoulder straps and a simple hip belt make the wear more comfortable. The main compartment has an intermediate bottom and a slot pocket for the sleeping mat (not included - sleeping mats: 32799 and 32706). The sleeping mat serves also as a cushion for the back. On top of the backpack is an additional compartment for (e.g.) a folding shovel. A separate zippered bottom compartment can easily be accessed from the outside.
