Rucksack - Black Waxed - $280

Our Rucksack, made from stout, closely woven waxed twill, is a modern interpretation of the traditional canoe pack. With a slim profile, durable construction, and sensible features, our Rucksack is free of complications and sure to please even the most demanding user. Our waxed cotton twill is remarkably water resistant and tough enough to take years of abuse.

Dimensions: 18” x 13” x 5”
Weight: 3 lbs

Made in USA


Adjustable two inch wide shoulder straps, two outer bellows pockets, leather strap with brass roller buckle closure, and draw cord to secure the bag’s contents. Edges are bound in waxed cotton tape, and stress points are bar-tacked or riveted. A double-layer reinforced bottom ensures a long life and even wear; semi-rigid back panel guarantees a comfortable ride and prevents bag flop. Only the highest quality materials are used for our bags: highly water resistant waxed cotton twill, Horween Chromexcel leather, and thread are of US origin. Webbing and most of our brass hardware is sourced from the UK.


Wipe clean with a damp cloth or brush. Spot clean with cold water. Do not use soap. Do not dry clean or machine wash, as this will remove the finish. Our bags arrive at your door fully waxed and ready to use. Over time, you may want to re-wax your bag to maintain its water repellency. Re-proofing wax is available in the Archival Clothing store.
