Home made Haversack - Thursday, September 01, 2011 6:39 PM ( #1 )
I have been getting the Self Reliance Illustrated Magazine put out by Blind Hoarse Knives and Dave Canterbury. It had an article on how to make a haversack for a day hike or a smaller bag to take with you when backpacking.


This is the bag partially completed. One side panel attached and one shoulder strap section completed (still not attached).


Bag completed, it is about 13.5 inches across the line of my little finger and thumb on the flap.


I checked the carry height of the original strap using some push pins and did not like it so I added a 24 inch section of strap to the left side of the bag. I can tie the two straps together or I may look for a buckle Friday.

Not sure yet if it is going to get the oil/wax treatment. I need to carry it a while and see if it works as day hike bag, then decide if I want to make some of the water proofing oil/wax mixture up.
