Vintage 1950′ Swiss Army Tornister

Vintage 1950′ Swiss army issued cowhide mountaineers rucksack,
also know as the Haaraffe tornister and became a classic in our collection!

These very rucksacks were introduced to the Swiss Army in 1898 and
remained unchanged until 1950 because of their decent design.

The bag features multible compartments inside that can be folded open and a small compartment on front.

The rucksack has an outside covering made of cowhide, this is from where
the bag got it’s German nickname ‘haaraffe tornister’, which means ape backpack.
The inside of the backpack is lined with canvas.

After 80 years the tornister remains in worn condition and shows some traces of wear as it stood the test of being used for years.
Some of the hairs have come off of the cow skin outer lining but it doesn’t show any bald spots.
There is a small hole in the skin cover of the front pocket.
