    chicom rucksack?

    still bugs me what rucksack is this. its got chinese markings and says "1979" but nowhere close to the original chicom rucksack used by the vietcong where it has 2 external pockets.

    The Chicom/Vietcong/NVA ones that you are referring to AFAIK had 3 external pockets. I have this one as well and can only put it down to a post war version (sort of like a mountain rucksack) that was used to complement rather than replace the 'Vietcong' version.
