These scarce had to find vintage jewels were initially issued to the Swiss Military from the 1950s to the 1960s; their original use was to carry first aid medical supplies like bandages, alcohol, surgical scissors, or a gas mask. The "salt and pepper" canvas was created in Switzerland during WWII from plant fibers mixed with cotton strands due to rationing. Since then, the fabric has become synonymous with Swiss gear.
These highly functional bags feature an adjustable cotton strap that extends up to 47.5" and can be used as a cross-body or shoulder bag. They have a flap with a slit and button closure for securely and comfortably storing your cellphone, kindle, a first aid kit, a camera, or a map. The Swiss bags are also suitable for daily use or to carry your hiking, camping, or skiing gear on your next journey.
