Vintage Swiss Army Bundle
Prepare for a lifetime adventure with the Vintage Swiss Army Bundle! In other words, it’s an iconic duo – Vintage Swiss Army Blanket and Vintage Swiss Army Backpack. Besides being the perfect combo for your hiking trip, this bundle also represents a historic, pre-used combo that dates back even to the 19th century. So, let’s see what we do have here.
Similar to the Original Swiss Army Blanket, the Vintage blanket is also made mostly of wool. Plus, it’s a historic, prestigious piece. And, most importantly, each piece is completely unique! They do differ in length, weight, and also in serial numbers and letters. Here’s a brief description:
- Pure virgin wool
- Height: 210×140 cm, tolerance +/- 5cm
- Weight: 2000g, tolerance +/- 50g
Vintage Swiss Army Blanket has 5 different classes. So, let’s explain each of them:
- Class 1 – the best condition (cross, metal button, and year)
- Class 2 – has the not so visible Swiss Cross or some small disadvantages
- Class 3 – with the number (as you can see in the photo below)
- Class 4 – no branding or metal button
- Class 5 – slightly damaged, but still good to use
NOTE: Photos are for display. Every piece is unique and guarantees the authenticity and best conditions available. All pieces have signs of use because they are several decades old.
For each class you choose, you can get the leather straps as well or not. It’s up to you. Obviously, the price is different.
Besides different dimensions, all other differences are potentially caused by shrinkage in case of improper washing. The initials of the manufacturing companies on the ceilings could not be assigned a company name so far.
One of the first things you’ll notice in photos is letters and numbers. And you probably wonder what they mean, so we tried to explain it thoroughly.
