i had fun finding this shit on the net.

The M1943 Backpack. This is a design based on a US Marine Corp pack used in the Pacific theater. It was intended to be a replacement for the M1928 haversack. Few were issued due to the release of the M1944 backpack system that saw limited use at the end of the war.This is a mountain rucksack used primarily by mountain troop such as the 10th Division. The pack was fixed to a lightweight tubular frame. It is the predecessor to the ALICE pack used through Vietnam and well into the 1990s.

We sell all kinds of other stuff in our Etsy store!

This reminds me a lot of the old swiss army backpacks. Not very comfortable and heavy even while empty. Nice back ventilation though.

    Now that we have the bills paid for this month, let's give Matt a hearty thank you by buying him a drink for all the hard work he's done for StP. Hopefully his will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.

    Now that the bills are paid and Matt has a beer in his hand, how about showing him your love by rewarding all his hard work with a big fat burrito to put in his mouth. This will keep him alive while programming new features for the website.

    Now that the bills are paid and Matt is fed, perhaps it's time to start planning for those twilight years under the bridge... if only he had that golden shopping cart all the oogles are bragging about these days.
