The Kit Bag 500 is a traditional log-shaped soft carry bag which folds up extremely small when empty for compact storage. It is the shorter version of the Kit Bag 650 and is also available in Kit Bag 900 and Kit Bag 1100, which is the largest kit bag. Kit Bags are especially popular amongst military staff.
High-quality 420g Ripstop canvas is used for the shell of the kit bag which makes the bag rugged and durable. Ripstop canvas is highly resistant to scuffing and tearing. All sliders are metal and will last a lifetime. Only YKK zips are used throughout.
The kit bag is 500mm long. It takes the shape of the contents eg. a sleeping bag, towel and clothes. It has an extra pocket at one end to separate shoes and/or toiletries from clothing. This pocket can be accessed from the inside of the bag through a zip.
The Kit Bag 500 has strong webbing carry handles that go all the way around the bag to give extra support. The strong webbing shoulder strap makes the kit bag easy to carry. There is also a carry handle at the zippered end to pick up the bag and carry it upright.
Available in four colours: Olive, Navy, Black and Maroon
