Claim your right to roam with this fine rucksack on your back. Make it in traditional British oilskin or a sturdy canvas. Fully lined with 3 divided internal pockets. The pattern includes a cross-body bag as an alternative.
The sample in the picture is made from Olive Dry Oilskin. For the lining we suggest something like a simple cotton, our barrier lining or a duck canvas will give it more body and stability.
Please note you need to use our split cowhide leather straps. These are thinner so will work much better with the buckles. Using the brass roller buckles? Because of the large circular prong part on these buckles we recommend that you do a row of 4 holes in your leather. This will ensure that the circular part of the prong pushes completely through.
Pattern Errata: Pattern piece 10 (handle): The gap between the rivet holes should be 6cm on each side. It is currently 5cm on one side and 6cm on the other.
This is an intermediate pattern.
