History of Military Rucksacks – article in Ernest Journal

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.
