I'd really like to find out more about it including origin and approximate age. I think there must be at least 3 external straps missing along with 3 of the tiny retaining straps off the buckles.
The shoulder straps are dark brown full grain leather as is the base of the bag. The upper part is green plasticised fabric.
I bought it for carrying bunnies but now I think it might be too nice to wreck.

What a cracking find.
You've given me an Idea @Ystranc . I've got one of the more modern Swedish packs languishing in the back of the shed I never really liked it. I might pull it out and see what I can do with it.

Lovely vintage pack mate 👍 ........I have one of the old Telemark metal framed packs.....similar sort of thing.
They used Caribu leather for the harnesses...... Looks like the back support strap on yours is a quality Bridle leather.

Very nice find. :)

I saw one of those packs with the reindeer/caribou hide flaps at the weekend as well but it was too rich for me. I'm still lamenting not buying one when you could still get them for £50
