This pack was discarded in the rich and fashionable neighborhood where I work. It seems in pretty good condition, except the buckle on the hip belt is broken. I could fix that, easy enough. The embroidery reads: Alpiniste 5 Ks 100e There are 2 tags inside, reading: Made with care in the UK. Inside there is also a foam sheet with metal bits in it, to fit the pack to the back. This slides in and out of a pocket that runs the length of the bag. I chased it around the internet a bit, and gather it is a mountain climbing pack what was a pretty good company. Would it be useful as a regular back-packing pack? (I have experience only with an external frame pack. The title pretty much sums up my questions. Thanks in advance for any info.
