An original item in excellent condition... (2009-10-30)
Don't know how you manage to find this stuff Jerry!

I ordered 12 of these and one even has the original paper label attached to it. All in great condition, no sign of any decay etc...

They are actually going to be used to re-enact a much earlier period, Byzantine Empire infantry soldier kit, for which they would appear to be exactly the same.

Amazing to think that this simple item has been used by soldiers to carry their gear in since the Roman Empire...

What a strange item! God knows when I'll get to use it but it looks great.

"String Bag" (2009-06-29)
Looking at previous reviews, I had a fair idea what this item really was. I ordered one, which asrrived in record time, and it is, as I suspected, not a common old string bag, such as my mother brought home the shopping in, but a cavalry HAYNET: a "horse''s haversack", in which the horse carried its day''s ration on the march. It is an excellent example. Thanks, Jerry!
