I want to put a backpack up for sale on Craigslist, but I wanted to make sure I knew what kind of thing it was first -- but I can't find what I think is the brand name, and looking at the type of pack it was supposed to be also doesn't look right. What the hell kind of pack do I have?

I got this off eBay a couple years ago. Ostensibly, according to the eBay listing, this is a snowboard backpack. It's got a big main compartment, and a separate pouch (about 10" by 12") that is affixed to the back with straps which can be tightened or loosened. Also, one side of the pouch has a zippered pocket so you can put stuff in it -- but the UNDERSIDE of the pouch also has a zippered pocket with two other straps that can come out and latch onto something. So it looks like you should be able to slip something between the pouch and the pack, use the straps from inside the pouch to hold it in place, and then use the other straps holding on the pouch to further tighten it down and secure the whatever-you-slipped-under-it.
However, all of the "snowboard backpack" googling I've just done doesn't yield anything resembling this construction at all. Also, the only sort of brand name or logo I can detect on this is the name "Voodoo Child," and I'm similarly unable to find any backpack or outdoor company with that name online, nor am I able to find any company that makes a pack with that model name. I got this off ebay in 1999, so maybe I'm dealing with something comparatively old.
I wanted to check what the going price for this sort of thing is so I can just get rid of it (I meant to get it for camping and figured "backpacks are backpacks", but now that I'm finally getting into camping I'm realizing it's really not going to work), but now I'm not even sure what it is I've got. Can anyone confirm what I've got so I can list this accurately? Thanks!
