Hotfoot,

My old external (75) is still going strong. In all those years I've had only one problem with it - a clevis pin came out and a strap came loose. No rips, tears, and no problems with the frame. Even the zippers are still holding up as new after 27 years. To me it's almost weird. I still have a shiny SVEA123 and an Optimus 99 from that time. Both work extremely well, and the SVEA fits into a series of nested SIGG cookpots that are really handy.  It's not as convenient as my newer cannister stove, but it will last a life time.

I have an older REI external frame pack.  (I am not sure how old).  I had to look pretty closely to see who made it!  It's old enough that the name isn't plastered all over it like they do now-a-days!  I don't use it, it is too big for my frame.  It is in pretty good condition, though.  
I *might* be able to be sweet talked out of it...
