1968 Ski Hut pack needs new canvas

12:34 a.m. on September 5, 2004 (EDT)

A pack bought in 1968 at Ski Hut in Berkeley CA needs new canvas -- fabric is all fatigued and zippers are wearing out -- but the frame is still fine. It seems that Ski Hut doesn't exist any more. Where do you suppose I could look for a new canvas part to fit the frame?

(Btw, this pack *should* be showing some wear, as it's gone close to 23,00 miles in the past 34 years! 24,000 is the circumference of the earth... Is there a Retired Honored Pack Museum someplace ?)

From time to time Trailwise packs show up on ebay. You may be able to get one there if you are patient.
