New (old) Woods pack, #1 Special

Kijiji gives up another vintage pack, a woods canvas #1 in great original shape. Oil the straps, and into the collection it goes. Last made some years ago, with quality way down and a retail price north of $200, these are a bargain and becoming increasingly sought after.

 Nice original tag

New Woods branded backpack. Nylon and made overseas, but they brought back the old embroidered logo rather than the new stylized one so it was an easy decision to buy one.
