CONDITION

Honest vintage wear consistent with age and heavy use. Staining/spotting throughout. All straps, rivets, seams and stitching are present and in serviceable condition. Rust and oxidization on metal hardware. Various small holes in canvas, most notably on the bottom. Slight grandma's attic aroma. Leather is worn and cracked in places but still surprisingly supple for age. Faintly visible on the left shoulder strap "Rick SP" has been scrawled. Multiple repairs through the ages. Both buckles for the tumpline strap are replacements, leather piece at top of shoulder straps has been restitched and multiple rivets are unoriginal. Leather strap in the middle of the cover has been stitched together near the top. As-is. You will rarely find this pack in such good shape with all of its components.
