TIP: The online Bushwalk Inventory System can help bushwalkers with a variety of bushwalk planning tasks, including: Manage which items they take bushwalking so that they do not forget anything they might need, plan meals for their walks, and automatically compile food/fuel shopping lists (lists of consumables) required to make and cook the meals for each walk. It is particularly useful for planning for groups who share food or other items, but is also useful for individual walkers.

Paddy Pallin Mountaineer rucksack

I’ve just acquired another old PP pack although this one needs a little tlc to bring it back into service.
The waist belt is missing the buckle. Does anyone have a front picture of this pack so I can identify and chase down a proper buckle..... I’d hate to compromise with a modern plastic equivalent.
Thx

Thought I might be able to help but mine is a Federation model. It only has a 1/2" waist belt with metal buckle so assume yours will be different.

Actually, if it’s 12mm then it’s probably same clasp as shoulder straps...... and I know what they look like.
Thx all the same.
