    It is even that color of green that only the Swiss can make. I call it hangover puke green.

    Look at the quality/size of those clips!!! And look at the frame on this monster. The pack is heavier then the new fangled stuff, but this frame is actually welded together, so you can appreciate the quality. Straps are all leather. I love this beauty. It even has an adjustable headboard like you see in the 70s model Jap cars, and it is even made out of nagahide. Imagine how many Naga's had to die just to make Swis pack frames!!

    Ok, got the pack in and am now posting a photo. You will note the two BOB's loaded on the pack and held down with bungees. Total weight is about 45 lbs. The pack is serious old school. 50's era Swiss, tough. Has the kidney pads. The straps have hardcore tough clips on each end that can be adjusted to fit about any frame, even my 6 foot 1, 240 lb body. The board part is very thick metal. No cheap materials used to save weight. I am going to buy another one.


    Ignore the idiot dog.

    Sweet. I just checked the Sportsmans guide, and this is enroute. I hope to have a report next week.

    Here is my next purchase. Also on back order. I figure this will hold both of my BOB's and be easily carried around.

    I got it in today. I will try to provide some photos in the near future. Looks pretty good though.

    Yeah. The Euro's know nothing of strapping sized folks like me!! Kind of like Jap cars in the 70's. Too small for the average American!!
