This is a modern day recreation of the haversack the French soldiers carried with them during the French and Indian war. Also referred to as a possibles pouch, it is now used for monastic pilgrimages. Whether you do reinactments, bushcarfting, or soul searching journeys, we are sure this modern rendition keeps with its ancestry and ruggedness.
The bag is made from 10.1 oz waxed canvas. It is 15" tall with a width of 12". It has a 7" fold over flap which is button closed with antique style buttons (this is our modern flare), to keep you kit inside the cover. The strap is 48" long.

Martexin Original Wax uses an exclusive Martexin® finish, which makes it technically superior to other waxed cotton fabrics in performance, longevity, and dryness of hand. Martexin Original Wax is an environmentally friendly blend of food and pharmaceutical grade waxes, and is completely non-hazardous. This unique formula gives the fabric lifelong resistance to inclement weather and as the fabric ages, it develops a well-worn and comfortable patina. The patina develops with more and more use, in the same manner that leather ages and burnishes with time.
Martexin Original Wax is a highly specialized textile that precludes normal cleaning. Just as you wouldn't wash a leather product such as shoes, gloves, or jackets, you won't be able to wash or dry clean your Martexin Original Wax. Wax fabrics have been successfully used for many years without washing. A periodic cleaning with a hose, damp cloth is all that is needed. Bare areas can be refinished with our Martexin Original Wax refinishing compound which can help restore the wax finish.
Each haversack is designed, created, and assembled in our small shop in colorful Colorado, USA. Every item is handcrafted and no two are exactly alike but all are made with great care and craftsmanship to last you a lifetime. Slight imperfections are part of the charm. This is a great item that will be passed down for generations.
