You expect a lot from a backpack at this price, but the materials and construction is second to none!
It was like going back in time when the backpack arrived, so many fond memories of my time growing up in the great outdoors & the wilds of Wales. Not too disimilar to my first backpack handed down to me by my grandfather who was an amazing woodsman and explorer. The pack is old school , beautifully hand made and a joy to behold something I will cherish and hand down to my own children. The delivery was fast and the company a joy to deal with, so refreshing to find a such service there days. Well done guys 10/10 HIGHLY recommended
Great pack will out last me.
In short... Yes! I've spent more time than I should of researching this pack, everyone banging on about the quality, brass this, life time lasting that. None of that actually compares to physically holding this pack, the smell, the weight and care put into its construction. It's a beautiful pack! worth every penny. I highly recommend purchasing the waist belt & bedroll straps (same Quality as the pack) to complete the look and functionality. Understanding service from NaturalMan ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
I haven't yet used the bag in the bush as it is a Christmas present yet to be received. However, on first inspection, the bag looks good and exceptionally well-made. It smells really nice too! I would say it is more of a faded olive colour than the brownish colour in the pictures. I actually before the greener colour but just be aware. It comes with a tin of proofer but no instructions on how to use it which would have been helpful. The main straps are super soft and comfy, and I'm pleased with the volume. I um'd and ar'd between the junior and the large back but I'm glad I went with the junior, plenty of room for overnight trips without being too big for day trips. Looking forward to introducing it to the great outdoors where I think a bit of usage will only add to its look. It's a good job it lasts a life-time as I may be living out of it when my wife finds out how much I've spent on it!
