Comrade's
Can anyone one help me out. I've been looking at getting me a flora camo RD 54 pack, my ? is what type of nylon are they made from
Some say made from rain coat fabric . It would be good if a comrade can post a close up pic of the fabric that the pack is made from.
Why i ask is that i seen one for sale on ebay and the pic of it looked like it was made from Cordura fabric but i missing that one.

Thick cotton like the uniforms were made in; I don't have one personally but that's what friends who've used them have shown to me evidence of.

Actually you may be right, the old packs were made with the cotton I think... The ones Vlad has I believe are the newer models that should be like a slick waterproof-ish material. I'm sure Vityaz could clarify for us.

Yea, the Afghan/Khaki ones are just the thick Canvas from what I know, I dont have either a Khaki One or a New one though, but judging on the fabric of witch my Flora cap is made of its a Close weave cotton/Nylon Mix, seams to be waterproof if I put it under the tap for an odd Minute. but its not a raincoat and it will get wet at a stage. If its the same Material, witch I think it would be
