Welcome to Wynnchester Camp & Adventure – home of the Wynnchester Canvas Bedroll. We design and develop fine quality heritage-inspired camping and adventure gear. Our range of tough, functional camp gear uses traditional materials and designs and is based on principles of simplicity, durability, heritage and functionality, typified by our tough canvas bedrolls based firmly on the heritage of British military ‘officer’s bedrolls’, the North American ‘cowboy bedrolls’ and Australia’s canvas ‘swags’. We also source and refurbish classic canvas military gear bringing back to active service the very best, most bomb-proof and durable European military rucksacks ever made, and technically-outstanding but all-natural vintage military wool clothing and other robust vintage camp gear.

We were very pleased to have been asked to contribute an article about vintage military rucksacks, their history and evolution for the fantastic Ernest Journal which is now out in print – well worth a look at the iPad or Print edition as it’s full of interesting things, a real gem of a publication – some further details here. The article featured some fantastic images of three of our reconditioned packs, taken specially for the feature, at the workshops at Wynnchester HQ – the Vintage Swiss Army Mountain Pack, The Norwegian Army Telemark Bergen, and our waxed-cotton haversack.
