I bought a North Face VE-23 a few years after they first came out. I could not afford the VE-24. Well, 45 years later someone gives me one! I have no idea how old it is. It is a little rough around the edges, but it is in great shape, all the zippers work etc. It smells like dog vomit inside, so I am going to strip the inside, clean it and reseal. A new project.
