We have a weak spot for old backpacks and to be honest you should too! They have this old world ruggedness to them that is simply great. Made out of thick duck canvas material, adorned with leathers straps, pockets and loop and of course the beaten in look that only time and extensive use can acquire. Most of the modern backpacks are lightweight have zippers in strange places, nylon, velcro and intense colors that scream for attention. In vintage backpacks the usefulness of the pack is the leading design choice without wasting valuable material on unneeded extra's. This gives them a timeless utilitarian quality and it is the reason they are still as good today as they were over half a century ago.
This one is a Romanian backpack from the 1960s and features a beautiful deep olive green duck canvas, rounded off flap and various thick leather straps that give you the option to attach something to the sides and top. There is a small stash pocket on the sides too and the straps are adjustable. The back is padded so it is actually a very comfortable pack, great for a day hike or as a great looking pack for your urban commute.
