The battle bag, or Mann bag, is a lightweight load carrying system designed to allow the combat infantryman to carry enough ammunition and ancillaries such as medical supplies, spare batteries, and radio equipment. There are a multitude of different suppliers for these, with the British Army having designed its own version for issue under the PECOC programme. The key compartments, or pouches, on the battle bag consist of the main compartment, 3 to 4 ammo pouches, an FFD (trauma dressing) pouch, and a radio pouch, which is usually mounted within the main compartment.
Today the battle bad is used to carry depleted rounds druing hunting and sporting events.
