[Civil War] REITH KNAPSACK

Has anyone any information whatsoever with regards to the
"Reith Knapsack" issued to the C.S.Army early in the Civil War ?

I understand that there are references to the knapsack in Todd's Equipage Terminology and Richmond Volunteers 1861-1865 by L. H. Manarin and Lee A. Wallace. But the corner of the world I reside in does not have these or any other references that may be of help.

Any information would be appreciated.
