These sell for three times as much new. They are great quality and don't wear out. You can't beat these for utility in the field. Some think these might be a little too heavy for a pack but you won't be sorry if you have to dig.
Purchased 2 of these recently. One was used but it great condition and the other looked brand new. Very good quality and a good price. Very happy.
Good used condition. Same quality as the one I was issued 30 years ago. These are getting harder to find at a decent price so I finally broke down and got one to carry in my trunk.
