Initial Italian “Alpini” Mountain Rucksack Review

This is an initial review of the Italian “Alpini” rucksack. This is an awesome piece of military surplus equipment that can be had for $20. Awesome value here!

That’s our combat pack… we carried a shovel in the center and a brown thin woolly blanket from the bottom straps.
My Battalion was 4BTG ALPINI ORTA
Peace and enjoy the pack

I’ve had this pack for years. Don’t know why you bought it you’re going to change everything. Mine’s very useful as is.

Is this item still available?

Hi dude, the backpack was used unitil 80′ by the whole Italian Army (sure that my father rused it !!) but it’s called “Alpini” just cuz’ they are one of the most iconic army division and they where the first to use that. For the shoulder straps you’re totally right need some modification for confort XD

Fuck’s sake . . . . what are you 12? Get your ass home and get the tape then shoot the video. Or just add the dimensions through editing. Damn. Do I have to do all the thinking around here?

Rick Miner says:

Dude, your review inspired me to pick up this rucksack. I totally love this thing! It has made me scale-down the amount of gear I carry with me into the bush (I learned I do not need to take all that stuff). Looking forward to a 3 day hike this spring with this pack.

When are you posting next?
