This is a medics mountain pack. Used by both German and Swiss military personal patrolling the mountains on the Swiss boarder, in the alps during the second world war. There are several types, this one is a cowhide pack in perfect condition. This is a one of a kind. It would be hard to find one of these anywhere in North America. I just brought this back from a small town in Switzerland on the boarder with Germany. This pack is in perfect shape everything is strong and has not been altered or repaired.
