my vintage swiss army backpack - salt and pepper pattern Hello, here is one image of one of my backpacks. A Swiss army backpack with the salt and pepper pattern from 1963. For the daily use I think this one is just perfect and the craftsmanship of this bag is just outstanding. Check my blog for more images and detail shots and also the comparison with the heavier version of this rucksack. The links are here: The heavier Salt and Pepper - Swiss army backpack The comparison between the lighter and the heavier Swiss Army backpack, 1963 and 1973 both salt and pepper pattern. and if you happen to have the lighter one and have not figured out to how to close it, my latest post about to close it - my way.
