          Top quality from the boys down south

          10/10 Light comfortable and low profile while still having buckets of storage, wrap your bedroll around it and you're set for a week long ruck, and for the Simonov bros out there each mag pouch comfortably carries 6 clips with easy extraction. Grab em while you can it doesn’t get much better than this.

          An awesome Grootsak

          Recently received one of these in my Bundesball order. A top quality field pack that has more than enough room for everything you need, some extras, and then even more. The bag supplied was top quality, with Afrikaans writing in red marker on the underside of the flap. Minimal wear and I know it'll last for many more years.

          Handy bit of kit.

          Bought a battle damaged one several years ago for about 50 American dollars. Customized it for a water bladder and it easily carries anything needed for 24hrs. Excellent mag capacity, comfortable and durable.

          Wish I could put it to some real use!

          Haven't gotten to put it to much use yet sadly due to this whole quarantine deal but it arrived on time and the only defect is a tear halfway down the divider of one of the ammo pouches. It isn't anything worse than I'd have expected given the condition (doesn't really impact the use of the pouch) I chose and would be easy enough to repair.
