    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Try looking on army surplus sites. They have vintage looking backpacks. My favorite are Swiss backpacks - they just have a cool, timeless style to them!

    I just got this Rag & Bone backpack/rucksack for Christmas and I've been thrilled with it so far. Surprisingly roomy with a really nice cotton lining, great construction and the perfect size. Do wish there was more than one interior pocket though.

    Note that the leather patch lines up directly with the nylon webbing (i.e. strap) loop down at the bottom. Traditionally, the patch holds some webbing too, with a buckle or a quick release. On packs where people actually use these things for what they were intended for, the combination of loop below and strap above allows you to strap on an icepick or walking pole, or axe or even a crossbow: secure the butt end of the polearm on the loop below, and bind the length of the webbing up above.

    Like so:

    That is looking fresh - But i would try to take a duffer bag type where you can just take out your papers and use them again.

    I have a friend who makes patch fabric backpacks in Toronto:

    I think the first big bag is available at lavish and squalor or Ruins on queen west. I think the laptop one was for a friend and the monotone ones are new.

    I love my Fjallraven Kanken laptop bag. Very light, durable (at least for the last two years of daily use) and waterproof, especially after I treated it with Greenland wax. They're a around $100 USD and great if you want function with a minimalist rucksack look.

    Sorry but I REALLY hate those they give me flash back to when I was in school and the only people you saw with them were teachers.

    I'm pretty sure Oslo was the same as Copehagen back in the 80-90's

    I don't think she has a site up yet as she is only selling them locally in Toronto, but I can talk to her and see. Price wise I think she is planning to sell the monotone ones for $60, but that seems pretty cheap since she makes them one by one so not sure. Patch bags are more expensive.

    She told me she's on a temporary hiatus as she's waiting for some materials she ordered. The messenger above is supposed to have a strap but it just hasn't been attached yet. I'll ask her for her email and PM you when she gives it to me so you can get in contact.
