U. S. War-Time Issue Double Bag Knapsack
This is our absolutely historically correct copy of the war-time issue double bag knapsack. Made from imported linen canvas with correct hand flat-felled seams and painted after construction for better waterproofing.
The V-pocket closes with buckskin ties. The leather shoulder straps have correctly scalloped ends, and the brass studs are covered with leather washers to prevent scratching the stock of the musket. If you have ever inspected the interior of one of these original knapsacks, you will remember the profusion of black linen thread that was used to chain stitch all the straps in place. You will see this reproduced in wonderful detail in our reproduction because it is not clumsily imitated by hand but, actually sewn on an original machine. All our hardware is faithfully reproduced in correct wire gauge and finish. Our bags can provide the owner with years of service if properly cared for.
We don't try to fool you by pricing our bag lower by leaving necessary things off and making you buy them separately. Our bags come complete with Blanket Roll Straps and J-Hooks. They come to you fully complete and ready to take out of the box, load and take into the field.
