My family had one of these great packs over the last couple of decades. It took a battering from myself and my three brothers through kinder, primary and high school. The canvas looks a bit worse for wear these days and the chunky YKK zip is not as smooth as it used to be, nevertheless it's still taken out on occasions.
Secondhand models can still be found, Holiak appear to have a few ex-hire rucksacks. Otherwise One Planet has a decent range of canvas packs, but I'll need another 20 years to give a reasonable comparison.

Hi. i just had to post this.
I'm 52 and I bought a little red one compartment pack "Outgear" "Down to Earth Products" when I was 22.
Mainly use for bikes and bushwalking
The thing is 30 years old and still fine! Zip, everything. Made of light canvas. Most cheapies break in months.
Truly awesome product-pity Outgear seems to have closed down-if anyone knows where I can buy another, let me know.
Should see me out!
Number of Pockets: 2
Max. Load Carried: 15
Height of Owner: 95cm
Price Paid: $100
Outgear make a great pack. mine is 13-yrs-old and still in good condition.
Where to Buy
The Outgear rucksack is not available from the stores we monitor.
