Because Switzerland is an Alpine country, the Swiss Army have their mountain troop to protect their borders. The mountain troopers work and train for combat in a harsh and hostile environment: steep, rocky paths, deep snow, thin air, and extreme weather conditions due to the high altitude.
It’s challenging to get supply and transport due to the rough terrain. Working in such a hostile environment, reliable and trustworthy equipment is an absolute necessity. For the Swiss Army, one of the most crucial pieces of equipment is a rucksack.
The rucksack uses high-density fabric woven with extra heavy yarns and unique camouflage patterns. We use this same extra tough; durable fabric for our rucksack that most certainly meets the demands of your lifestyle.
*All of the collection from this line is made by either Chrome Xcel Tanning or Vegetable Tanning Leather exclusively made by Horween Leather Co. Animal’s Skin is changed to Leather by its procedure of tanning which enables it not to rot nor stiffen.
