    I see these sell anywhere from $50-$70...The type shown is preferred as it has its own straps, rather than the type that requires Y-Straps to hook up to...There should be a prominent makers-mark and a date visible on the harness...These were made by the Swiss as well, btw...
    cheers, Glenn

    Appears to be nice German cow hide pack as Glenn says there should be a maker mark and possibly a date on the leather strip possibly middle on the top of pack. I have seen some later ones with RBN NO and not makers name. timothy

    I am not familiar with the way the straps are attached to the pack. It appears the leather is stitched to a metal ring type piece which is then held in place with the normal attaching lug. I normally encounter full length straps which have 3 or 4 holes in each strap depending upon the length required. This may just be a type I have not seen but its not what I would call normal.

    To be honest I would pass on this one...

    This is a M39 Tornister which should have the hooks to hang it in the Y-belt and not the straps (which belong on a M34 Tornister.
    Besides that, the straps are not the original straps that belong on a Tornister.....

    just my opinion

    The guy is offering it for 40 euros, that's to much right?

    Well, the straps don't bug me although they are oddly attached. It might take a little work but for 40 Euros I would get it and look for proper hardware. NH

    Well, since you can get correct Tornisters for 40 - 60 euro I would pass, but it's your choice of course

    Just my opinion....
