History Jungle Pack

Between 1939 and 1945, US military equipment underwent continuous development to meet the specific needs created by different climates and environmental settings.

The jungle pack was a large canvas rucksack made in plain olive green and a camouflage pattern, designed for use in the tropical forests of the Pacific. It was more practical and had a much simpler design than its forerunner, which was an open piece of cloth where the contents were assembled and rolled together.

The jungle pack featured separate waterproof bags and pouches to be stored inside the main compartment to organise and protect extra clothing and blankets, toiletries, provisions and personal belongings.

Two pairs of web straps ran horizontally and vertically around the body of the bag so that the volume could be adjusted to the contents. The bag was secured with a drawstring and covered with a waterproof flap. On top of the flap, a zippered compartment held a canteen, medical kit and other small articles.
