    Rich – I’m by no means an expert on rucksacks. If I had some advice to offer, it’s look for specific/unique markings on, around or within your bag, these may be able to help you identify it’s origin. Things like, buttons, snaps, zippers, stamps or even the stitching or cloth can help.

    Good luck!

    I have the Swiss large assault backpack. It has found its way all the way to Barbados. A small Caribbean island. Cool to know !
