    Just what I was Looking for!!

    I've been gearing up to start doing some overnight tracking and was looking for a period correct nap sack/backpack.
    I found this and decided to treat myself to a nice pack instead of making due with a cheaper made one. I am glad I did. This is very well made and the only complaint would be the straps for tying your bedroll to could be a little longer and more flexible. I replaced them easy enough with some I cut from a tanned hide I had. Don't hesitate if you need a pack I'd say get it.

    Top notch all around

    I just received this item and high quality, it's construction is excellent and can handle all the items that i need for an event. Townsend's is a company you can count on and delivery time is very quick.

    Exceeded expectations

    I can not say enough good things about this knapsack. It is very well put together. It looks great. Plenty of room for the soldier on the march. The leather straps on the bottom are long enough to hold a good sized blanket roll. I'm very pleased with this investment. Huzzah!
