Soviet M36 backpacks in a condition such as this one have gotten very difficult to find.  This pack is in fine condition overall.  There is some dryness and chafing to the leather and one crack in the leather on one shoulder strap. However, the web backing layer keeps things together strongly.  This pack is also complete in that it has the lower belt hook.  These packs come in two variations in this regard. Some are set up for it and others are not.  Packs that are set up for the lower belt hook often are missing this small piece much like  it is missing from many comparable German tornisters.  A rare opportunity to obtain this model backpack in complete state and in good condition.  Everything here is factory original, even the interior pocket buttons.
