Indy/Mutt's KOTCS backpack

Has anyone found the type of backpack Indy and Mutt are sporting when they're in Nazca and the Chauchilla cemetary? I haven't seen much information on it and from the brief time it's in the movie, it looks pretty cool.

It's a German Military rucksack. I heard the Swedish rucksack is similar too. You can snag one off eBay.

Thanks. I had no idea what it was even called to begin to start looking for one.

I have one. I'll see about posting pics. They have a modern version on amazon. The difference is the straps. They took away the leather straps and replaced them with cloth and plastic quick locking connections. makes it easy to use the leather with the buckle takes a lot more time getting in and out of the bag.

Here is mine

To narrow down the search, it's a german mountain infantry backpack. The standard military backpack looks a little bit different. If you're lucky, you can get a used one pretty cheap.

That's kind of ironic it's a German military bag!

I actually have a pretty "good enough" version of it myself from Old Navy. It's made of heavy duty canvas, and I found it in the clearance section for like $6.

Very true!

It kind of makes you wonder what else he might have picked up on his travels?

If there is a mast general store near you they have an Australian rucksack that looks a lot like the bag in the movie except no leather straps

I got a german military rucksac too. Mine has the cloth straps with the plastic connections and padded straps. I had thought about removing them and replacing them with more SA straps...maybe a project for the winter???

I know mine has room to spare. I take it on overnight trips like when me and g/f went to Cinncinatti this past July to see Kid Rock and Lynard Skynard with Black Stone Cherry in concert, I took my clothes in it and had room. I love that bag!

I always found it interesting that Indy uses a shoulder bag. Shoulder bags are quite uncomfortable and unwieldy when they are full. A rucksack makes much more sense for Indy to carry.

Wasn't the shoulder bag a British gasmask bag? I know that my old Action Man (GI Joe) Tommy had something that looked identical! Maybe the heavy Webley on the other hip evened him up a bit...

Good because the frames are expansive.

If you live in Europe, especially Germany, you can find these all over the internet. It's the old Bundeswehr (BW) rucksack. 16 euro at this link, that's only 22 bucks U.S., kids.

Here in the states they're harder to come by, one beat up and overpriced ruck on ebay was all I could find. Dammit.

These bags are reproduced by the Max Fuchs Company. Every online retailer that sells these is out of stock for about a month. I Found a store in the U.K. that sells them (also a month from now) and will ship to the states for about 20 dollars less than that last link, and they also do paypal.





Shipped to Tennessee that's 34 British Pounds, or $55.32.

Found THE REAL DEAL today online after searching for what seemed like an eternity:









I called them up and they said they had "like a dozen of them". $29.95 USD. Here's the link. Ordered mine today.

Make that "like a dozen of them MINUS one!"

Ka-CHING!

I just placed my order. THANKS, bro. Been looking for one of these for quite a while. Final cost around $46 with shipping.

Saw the logo of some sort in the pic, and looked around a bit.


Here's what I found on YourProps.com. Indy's initials on his bag. Very cool.

Can't wait to (carefully) put mine on the bag when it comes.

Truly, thanks for posting the link.

Better move fast. They'll go quickly, and you won't find them at this price anywhere else.

I did come across this on Amazon, an updated version of the same bag.


http://www.amazon.com/Canvas-German-.../dp/B000AB9YP6
$29.97 (without shipping)

Still has the drawstring. No leather accents or the waterproof bottom, but I do like the update on the snapping buckles. Much more functional than the buckles on the original. Padded shoulder straps look comfortable, too.

As for the buckles, I'm thinking I might try to hide some magnetic snaps or something under the straps. If you're on the street, though, have to go with the straps and buckles for security.
