1952 ARMY TENT ROLL-TOP RUCKSACK

245.00

The first Rural Kind rucksack - a limited edition run of 5 bags made from vintage 1952 army tent canvas combined with our lovely oak bark tanned leather. A simple, hardwearing and refined design, rugged enough for the hills, good looking enough for the city.

The roll-top rucksack has a main compartment that will hold all your daily necessities (including a laptop), a couple of useful internal pockets for smaller items and two external pockets sized to hold an OS map. 

The bag is made from a 1952 army tent so each bag will have its own unique character with markings from its former life. In keeping with the rugged nature of the tent fabric we have left the internal seams raw and unbound, but double stitched for strength and durability.

Each bag is individually stamped with the date of the canvas and its limited edition number.
