General information about the M-36 Musette Bag
The M-36 Musette Bag was issued by The US Army during WW2 for use as a handy shoulder bag or a small pack. It was prized for its light weight, compact size and surprising carrying capacity. It was especially popular with paratroopers, who always jumped, fought and moved in light marching order.
