This guy's right.

However, you might be able to find comparable substitutes by looking for glacier sunglasses/goggles.

Compact pair of winter glacier glasses in the original metal case. Super dark lenses protect the extreme winter sporting enthusiast from snow blindness. They were typically used in the Swiss Army by Gebirgsjäger (Mountain Riflemen) albeit adapted for skiing, traversing glaciers, etc. Whether you use these or put them into your collection is up to you.

Back in the '80s, I saw two different kinds of these hairy rigid-framed backpacks in a war surplus store for cheap and I bought them both.

Heavy use will rub off the hair and one's leather (unshaved calf skin?) split after a decade or so.

Funny story: I had my hairy 1939 Swiss Army backpack on a table at a mall in San Jose, Ca. in the late '80s and some girl approached me while I was eating a slice of pizza and proclaimed, "You know that an animal had to DIE to get you that stupid backpack?!" I looked around nervously and replied, "Gosh, I didn't think there would be any... WITNESSES!"

Svenska Armén Kavalleriet Ryggsäck, Swedish Army Cavalry Backpack & Harness
I picked up a vintage Swedish Army backpack a couple of days ago to use with my vintage bicycles, specifically the Bundesgrenzschutz bicycle. The bag was sold with the attached Y-strap harness and I was told that it was a WW2 vintage Swedish Cavalry pack. So far I have not found any information about Swedish Cavalry equipment from that era, or any photos either. There are no markings or dates on the bag, but it definitely looks Swedish. So for now, we will just call it a "Vintage Military Bicycle Backpack". http://sharky-fourbees.blogspot.com/2011/03/svenska-armen-ryggsack-swedish-army.html

One odd thing about this bag is the leather mystery mounts on the bottom of the bag. It holds a length of 7/8 inch broom stick perfectly. It has a closing strap that seals off one end. At first I thought it was possibly for holding a bayonet, but it is definitely not going to work for that........ For now, I've just installed a piece of broom stick until I can figure out what to store there. If anyone knows what this holder is for, please leave me a comment or drop me an email!

The outer flap has a very cool closure system with brass u-studs that push through a slot and then are held closed with a length of leather thong that passes through all three. I've seen this style of closure system on the later models of Swedish canvas bags, so this also fits with this being a Swedish bag.

This is a great looking bag and it will fit in nicely with my vintage military bike gear......... I may never know exactly what it's history is, but I'm glad to have it in the collection.

SWISS ARMY BACKPACK $429.00
This is an excellent example of a Swiss made army backpack. Complete with all straps and very minimal wear to the cow hair on the exterior, and no rips in the interior canvas. This square model would have been used for First Aid and still has some of the original Swiss Army pamphlets explaining triage care in the field. Nicknamed the "Haaraffe" or "hair monkey" because of its looks. http://skicountryantiques.com/products/cowhide-swiss-army-tornister
Dimensions: 15"H 141/2" W 5"D
Era: 1940

$429??
I bought one of these (and one of the taller, narrower ones like >>15621 ) at a war surplus store, back in the '80s for around $20 each. I wore them a lot, but the hair started wearing off on the back and the thin hairy calf skin leather split on the big one. I replaced them with a heavy canvas, steel and leather Swiss Army rucksack that was terrific at carrying 80 pounds of school books and binders around.

Walls are reinforced with thin wood panels, I believe.
The leather shoulder straps are attached to a round wooden dowel threaded through a leather loop and nailed in place.
