Bushcraft-- wilderness self reliance skills— the ability to not only survive, but thrive for extended periods in the woods. For some, it can take a lot of gear to thrive, for others, all they need is a trusty knife, a hatchet, and the wealth of knowledge accumulated over a lifetime. Our Isle Royale Bushcraft Packs are built to carry big or small loads. All three sizes are designed narrow, for exploration, slipping between dog hair aspen and brush, these packs blend classic materials and construction with updated features for modern classic backwoods adventures. With lots of organization in the form of pockets, attachments and straps, there’s space to keep gear where it needs to be. Plus, there’s plenty of capacity in the tall, narrow pack body.

This pack is great! It is something that can be passed down through generations and should last a very long time if it's cared for. Very heavy duty and durable. I purchased this because my granite gear superior one portage pack strap broke on the 2nd protage during it's first bwca trip. This thing is much stronger and almost as big.
