I was shopping at a flea market today. I came across a couple frame packs. One is getting resold, but the other one I'm keeping. I've been looking for something just like it, and it was only $5! :up:
The material is canvas. Very nice... I've not been able to find anything like this. The frame really stabilizes it. All the buckles are leather. It carries plenty high and I still have plenty good access to my gun and everything else on my belt.
The shoulder straps are very padded, and very comfortable. The only thing I miss having is a chest strap, but I may find something to use for that.
Here's the pack...
... the frame and the shoulder straps...
... and the only logo or writing I can find anywhere on the pack.
Can anyone tell me anything about this? Who made it? When?
I'm going to have to take it out for a test hike soon. I think one pocket will be dedicated to a military canteen, and I'll have to find a place to put my Camelbak. If I carry that, plus my 2 quart canteen with shoulder strap, plus the military canteen, I'll have 1.25 gallons on me, nicely distributed. Big plans.
Anyway, comments? Info? Figure I did well? :D
