    I do not think it is the receipt as I know this cost more than $44 in 1994.

    I agree with the old stuff (minus the 48 hour bag as I do like that) as I have many curly shagged rough-out straps on some of the bags in my vault, even pre-bedrock aquisition. The rough-out suede straps are prized in my opinion.

    Yup, the 48 hr duffle bag is really nice. However made of tin cloth...

    I have the small tin cloth rucksack. Really like the fabric, much more "life" than the - when new that is - quite dull twill/canvas, but it does not seem at all as durable as the twill/canvas. I have also read other posts where people have had holes in the tin cloth just out of normal wear. The parts of my rucksack where it is constantly wrinkled (topmost part where the string runs) show signs of this, small holes form in the "sharpest wrinkles".

    Is the 48 hr duffle a safe buy regarding this... Hmm

    Yes, tin cloth is a different animal over the twill. I love tin cloth. The key is to re-wax stress areas. It has good abrasion resistance, but it is not as dense as the twill. The heavy tin in my opinion is bomb-proof. That is my favorite material and wish they made more bags out of it. I have and use the 48 hour. Obviously I am not taking this bag out in the field as I do not think it is meant for that. I wouldn't think twice on buying the 48 (at a discount).
