    I still have mine....I think I bought it at the Canex at CFB London in the early 80's although mine is a more Nylon material...

    Fairly common then? This was sitting at a local thrift shop for months. Finally they drastically dropped the price on it, so I scooped it.

    They were the "thing" to have for a while. Sold in the CANEX.
