LL: thought you might be interested in a few more names:

Buzz Rickson's sews WWII replicas. Obsessively.

Duluth makes traditional packs.
http://www.duluthpack.com/

Frost River does the same (based on images, it's likely the same manufacturer).

Apologies if I've duplicated or overlooked comments you've already made about these folks.

Thanks for the site!
