Dakota Waxed Canvas Backpack Rucksack - Field Khaki


Not long before our father died, my brother and I invited him to join us for a hike in Dakota valley. He showed up carrying this waxed canvas backpack from God knows when. Come to find out, it belonged to Frank, our father’s college roommate who went off to Vietnam and never came home. He had filled the ancient canvas backpack with glass jars of homemade jellies and jams, fresh baked bread, and pounds of salami. He was the walking antithesis of the go-light principle. But he carried it that day with a young man’s strength and determination, as if for that day he was reborn. My brother and I still look back on that as one of the best days of our lives together.

I still have that waxed canvas backpack, and I used it as the model for the Dakota Heritage Collection of bags. Crafted of waxed canvas and vegetable tanned leather, these bags were built to honor the memory of good men and good days.

Outfitted like the original with copper rivets, black buckles, and a safe place for your laptop to land. With vegetable tanned leather trim and leather base, the waxed canvas helps protect your gear from the elements.
