I thought I'd share a few pics of my new Frost River gear. My motives are partly to help out people who like this kind of thing (there is a scarcity of FR pics) and partly because I want to show it off!
Isle Royale Jnr Bushcraft Pack
Padded leather and buckskin straps.
Sternum strap but no waist strap on this model.
Sturdy solid brass D-ring lash points on the lid.
Leather lashing squares underneath.
Map pocket in the lid which could probably do with a zip!
The pockets have got a sleeve behind them for longer items.
You could, if you wanted to, put a knife in the wand pocket on the side as is popular Stateside. I will not be carrying my knife like this but you get the idea
I also ordered a medium pouch and a Lunchbag for internal organisation. I just loved the look of the Lunchbag, so old school. I need to mod the closure strap though, its not very secure!
The Lunchbag is for the brew kit, it gives you an idea what it will hold.
And the medium pouch is for the bits and bobs, the 'Bush Toolkit.'
Although the pack was quite expensive the pouches were real good value. The pack itself is very versatile, I could load it up for two or three nights easy but it cinches down well for just a day hike.
I'm building a good collection of canvas gear now. Its not a problem, I could quit whenever I want
