Field Testing

DSC_0167Field testing the nearly finished rucksack.  It still needs a few closures and bits but is essentially as finished as anything I make.  It’s poorly packed for a quick hike and not very full.  More pictures to follow when I get some time off to tramp around with it.

Features: Heavy, waxed canvas truck tarp with 10-12 oz leather straps and all brass hardware.  It has an axe sleeve, two long, exterior pockets, small flap pocket, two narrow pen-type sleeves, interior valuables pocket, compression D-rings on sides, D rings for shelter roll, and loops for carabiners.

All hand saddle-stitched and riveted at stress points.  I’ll put up a sketch of the pattern for anyone interested.

  1. I understand, if you do sketch it up or make the dimensions available let me know. A ruck build is moving up on my list.
    Many thanks.
