Ps. Did you know that in ancient times, the backpack was originally used as a hunting bag? It carried the hunter's larger game and other types of prey and as a way of easier transport for other materials. The bag itself would be made up of animal hide and other somewhat unsavoury bits, which I won't go into in too much detail here.
Pps. There are differences of opinion but it is thought the word rucksack is a German loanword mainly used in the UK and in Western military forces. In German, der Rücken means "the back (the part of the body)" and Sack for "bag". The name rucksack is cognate with the Danish Rygsæk, Norwegian Ryggsekk, Dutch Rugzak, Afrikaans Rugsak and Swedish Ryggsäck. The word backpack was coined in the United States in the 1910s. Moneybag and packsack were used before. (Scource: Wikipedia)
