The emblem featured is also called “the ruptured duck.” These patches were originally sewn onto the clothing of World War II military personnel before being discharged from any of the four military branches. They were also legally permitted to wear it on their civilian clothing. Even more interestingly, they were also unofficially worn by civilians on military apparel after the war. This was due the shortage of civilian clothing from cloth rationing and the focus of many American clothing manufacturers being redirected to supplying the troops.

Purchased a used backpack, very satisfied!
Gear is great, loved the patches, the insulated pants are going to be great when shooting those cold rifle matches, had the upper from the military but never got the bottoms back. Will definitely place more orders.
