    Default NVA Cooler?

    Just picked up a military backpack style insulated carrier. Maybe someone could help me identify the origin and its use. The model number is "NVA 1981 345" and formed into the bottom. It's green, fiberglass on the outside with an aluminum insert inside. I think it would hold at least a twelve pack of beer.

    Thanks

    Thats definitely a peculiar find, possibly for transporting medical equipment like IV bags or something? Interested in finding out too.
    Commonly found in the Nationale Volksarmee and Soviet Union boards.

    Certainly is East German, '81 dated & 345 factory code.
    I'd say it's for hot rations.

    Thank you for the info... it will be used for cold rations (beer) at my house.

    What's funny, I live in Southern California and picked it up in a garage sale for $5. Had no idea where it had came from but figured it would hold beer nicely and be a great conversation starter. Took me a couple days to find this website. I doubt the seller had any idea the origin as well.

    Good move, I use the West German counter part for my beer!

    I know first hand the US Mermites keep beer cold for a long time. The East German one should do well.

    Enjoy those cooled beers while whistling "the people's flag".
