The MF® “Musette” pattern is our interpretation of the M1892 haversack issued to French troops from the late 1800’s to the mid 1930’s. These “bread bags” were mostly used for carrying provisions. Soldiers on the front lines frequently carried two, packed with a loaf of bread, saucisson, and the daily ration of Père Pinard (250ml in 1914, 500ml in 1916… and a full 1/4 galon bottle by 1918) to numb the gruesome reality…
Our 2011 model, the Musette “Biribi”, was initially released in NOS indigo stripe ticking. This updated 2019 “Biribi” Type II features the same shell fabric but an Olive Drab adjustable strap (Vietnam-era NOS US Mil-Specs OD cotton webbing) and matching flap facing (NOS OD cotton HBT).
The adjustable shoulder strap is cut from Vietnam-era NOS US Mil-Specs Olive Drab cotton webbing, and features a vintage-style two-prong metal buckle. The strap slack can either be slid through the buckle, or inserted through the webbing loop.
Note: This is an unstructured bag. It is not padded and should not be considered as shock-proof protective carrying sleeves for laptop computers or iPads.
