Original German WWII Tornister 34 Cowhide Backpack with Shoulder Straps by Wittkop & Co 1936
Original Item. Only One Available. This is an excellent condition cowhide-covered rucksack known as the Tornister Model 34 (developed in 1934) which was later fitted with new style straps in 1939. As the war progressed the design was simplified for economical and practical reasons so the cowhide cover was eliminated making these packs especially scarce on today’s collector market.
This example is in excellent condition and comes complete with the 1939 issue shoulder straps. It retains 99% of the cowhide and the leather is in strong supple condition. Nicely maker marked:
WITTKOP & CO
A fantastic early example of a hard to find backpack as used by the German Wehrmacht in WW2.
