    Hello,

    Get this backpack used and brought back by a French SF from Afghanistan. As usual no tags.

    It is similar to the Maxepedition Falcon II.

    Yes, I know in the markets and bazaars there are allot of Chinese and Pakistani items bought in. This isnt just military items but civilian clothing, trinkets, dvd's etc. I remember checking the wrappers of some of the food food we were buying and it was bought in from Iran!

    i am hoping to be wrong, but from the pictures i don't have a warm feeling about it. In my opinion it's too similar to the generic made in china military looking packs that flood the market, under the generical "molle assault pack" name
    http://www.ebay.com/itm/Military-Style-Level-III-Medium-Transport-MOLLE-Assault-Pack-Bag-Backpack-/160722454260 http://www.military1st.co.uk/pl-cap-po-04-helikon-molle-compact-assault-pack-polish-woodland.html

    I am trying to recoup if Afghans may have access to that kind of mesh, fittings, buckles, color of velcro.
    It is different to what i am accustomed to see in an afghan made item.

    Obviously i am only wondering if this has been actually MADE in afghanistan or just BOUGHT over there. The fact that it's used by french SF is great, expecially if documented.
