1920s Fieldmaster half moon hunting vest

http://www.ebay.com/itm/281433509205
This vintage vest was made in the late 1920s. It was sold by Sears under the Fieldmaster Gun Coats label. This label design is the early version used by Sears during this period. In the 1930s, these were mostly sold under the Double Duty label, and had slightly different detailing. The vest (or sleeveless coat as period ads always refer to these as) has an interior game pocket with a belt adjuster. The half moon pocket gives front access to this pocket. The shoulders are reinforced and the vest has two large wraparound bellows pockets.

1920s Wright and Ditson canvas tennis bag

http://www.ebay.com/itm/271593818029
This vintage canvas bag was mad by Wright & Ditson. It fastens at the end with a Talon Hookless fastener. At this point, the product was still known as Hookless, while the product was known as Talon. This has the transitional pull design which bears both the Hookless and the Talon names, with patent dates 3-20-17, 10-16-17, 11-25-19, 10-13-25, and 12-22-25 on the back . Consistent with this early date, the slider is unmarked and the end has D shaped stoppers. The ball pouch on the front of the bag has a Greek key trim patterned snap, made by the United States Fastener company, which merged in 1929 with Carr to form United Carr. This hardware pre-dates that merger, which puts the dating of this bag somewhere in the 1926-1930 range. The bag was originally owned by Elmer Giesick of Billings, Montana.

The tie measures 49″ long and 4-1/4″ wide.

1930s canvas saddlebags

http://www.ebay.com/itm/281424920712
This vintage canvas bag was made in the 1930s. It has early talon zippers, with the D shaped stoppers at the top (before they switched to the solid metal stops in the ’40s) and a rare variant of the bell-shaped pull. The slider is of the plain-back style (no stampings) which was used in the early-mid 1930s. The end of the opening on the bag is leather reinforced. Unlike regular saddlebags, which are essentially two bags with a separate connection piece, these are a single, continuous bag, shaped roughly like a barbell. The ends are bucket-bottomed, and have drainage grommets both in the bottom and on both sides. The zippers open the entire bag and run vertically, as opposed to the horizontal openings usually seen on this type of bag. The heavy canvas started out life as a deep forest green, as can be seen in the last photograph, but has faded heavily over time. This is perfect for motorcycles or just as a rugged over-the shoulder carryall.
