Rothco Classic Paratrooper Shoulder Messenger Bag- Review

Rothco Classic Paratrooper Shoulder Bag- Review
This bag is slightly smaller than the Vintage Classic Messenger bag.
I bought this bag because it has some features that I like.
I like the clasp to secure the main flap.
I also like the snaps on the inner flap.
It has 3 dividers in the main compartment.
The shoulder strap has a pad for comfort and is removable.
The cotton canvas is soft and still feels durable.
All the connecting points are reinforced.
If you need a very large bag, go for the Vintage Classic Messenger Bag.
If you need slightly smaller and want the ability to secure the flap, go for the
Paratrooper bag.
I really like them both.
I wish the shoulder strap on the Paratrooper bag was about 3-4 inches longer.
I’m over 6 foot tall and the strap feels a little short for me.

Olive Drab Vintage Paratrooper Classic Shoulder Messenger Bag –
* 12 Ounce Stone Washed Canvas Material.
* 3 Inner Compartments.
* One Outer Double Snap Compartment.
* Shell Loops.
* Adjustable Shoulder Straps.
* No Emblem.
* Dimensions: 14″ x 11″ x 4″.

  1. What militarys paratroopers used this ? I cant find it anywhere , is it just called that to sound cool?

  2. S-L-O-W down…

  3. I know someone else asked, how well does this hold up?

  4. Hey- What did you treat it with?

  5. I've had one of these bags as my daily go-to for some 5 years. Been through everything with me. The only real wear is fraying around the outer edges.

  6. How's the bag holding up?

  7. Hey I have a question. I am 6 foot tall and does the bottom of the bag hang to ur waist or the top of ur bag hang to ur waist??

  8. Would those ammo holders hold c02 cartridges?

    One should consider a sheet of foam (folded in half) to cushion a laptop/tablet in one of those pockets.

  10. I might get this and use the front pocket for paint and main pocket for a backup gun

  11. Is it waterproof?

  12. so I'm looking for a new bag and I noticed you have a few different reviews for different bags… why does 1 person have so many bags?

  13. I have one of these and love it, but are there any uses for the d-rings on the back?

  14. Lauren McAllister

    I know this is almost a year old.. But THANK YOU!! I've been SO tired of purses && my local Army Surplus downsized so I haven't been able to LOOK at the bag I want.. && online the pictures.. show.. NOTHING!!

    You broke it down wonderfully (: Thank you!

  15. Or if you want to keep the weight down, instead if the heavier messenger bag. Do you have a film on the paratrooper after waxing?

  16. $400.00 that's a little much for me..:)

  17. It looks cooler then the $400 dollar bag I was looking at before..

  18. how did you treat it with wax and oil ?

  19. They very useful..
    It's amazing all the stuff these things carry.
    I wish this one had a longer shoulder strap though.
    They are man bags. 🙂

  20. Thanks for posting this! I was wavering about buying that bag, because the Rothco catalog doesn't show the innards. After seeing your vid, I'll buy one.

  21. Ha! No worries.. I had no problems. That's the next vid…:)

  22. Ha! I did like that one..
    But, this bag with the plain front was on sale for $9.99.
    I went with cheap.. 🙂

  23. Thanks! I like it.
    It's a little smaller than I like..

  24. You should'a got the one with the bio-hazard stitch on the front. people would move out your way everywhere you go.
