Vintage Vault: Sierra Designs Backpack, c. 1970s

A long-time customer brought his 70s-era Sierra Designs backpack in for our resident bag repairman to fix, and we managed to sneak a couple of shots in before its return home. Note the blanket-lined straps and worn-in patina on the leather bottom and lash tabs. Vintage beauty.
