I have a customer who wants a BLUE Dacor Back-Pac. These seem to have been available throughout the 1960s. If you have one, email me at [email protected]

Allan, I just emailed you photos of one that I have for sale. It’s in superb condition, with all of the webbing and band assembly parts.

Those were far superior to the almost identical plastic versions made by US Divers. The plastic ones were highly prone to cracking from over-tightening the bands and also from laying them concave side down with tank attached. Dacor's aluminum ones were virtually impervious to those abuses. (as were the Sportsways contour pacs).
The older I get the better I was.
