Default WTB - External Backpack

looking for an external backpack that someone wants to get rid of -- preferably load bearing (one with the perpendicular frame at bottom as well).

An external backpack? I should hope so! An internal backpack sounds like a hell of a nightmare. Not to mention the recovery time from surgery. Or is it possibly just consumed?
Oh, the possibilities!!!

Rachelo,

BC Boy is talking about a packboard type frame pack. In the 1970's they were typically an aluminum frame with a garish coloured orange nylon pack attached. The predecessor was the "Trapper Nelson", wood frame & canvas pack, used by the likes of the Mundays.

Gregory made an external frame pack board a few years ago that was quite popular with big game hunter guides, for packing animal parts out and also with pot farmers, for packing in grow-op supplies in.

Now, if we could just align the two groups, we could be packing product in both directions.

Kelty still makes a range of external. Skyview in Surrey sell the brand.

I know what an external-frame backpack is. The lack of the term 'frame' in it, made me think of what an 'external backpack' could be, and I poked fun. I had thought the exclamations and '' were sufficient to make clear my lack of seriousness. I suppose not.
