Yes, My First Backpack Looked Like This!

Heavy canvas on a wooden frame with a non-adjustable hip strap and no sternum strap; probably army surplus...

I had one that looked very similar.

A self-proclaimed "Mountain Man" made it for
me, so I didn't complain too loud at the time.

Glad somebody else enjoyed the same fun and misery. Obviously it didn't totally stunt our interest in the out-of-doors!

Do you still have yours? All my old packs have been given to others.

I gave away my bicycle that I had purchased
in 1989.

I really don't know what happened to the pack.
I bought a new Kelty pack in 1991, and I
soon found long-lasting salvation from my masochistic misery.
