I’m a big fan of Best Made Companies axes, however impractical they are as a city dweller. They’re absolutely beautifully presented and marketed which makes me want one quite a lot.
I spotted this new bag by Archival Clothing in their webstore called the Archival Clothing Rucksack and figured some of you in the market for a new bag might be interested. This fella is made up of waxed cotton, the edges are bound in waxed cotton tape and stress points are bar-tacked or riveted and solid brass hardware is used throughout. It even looks like there’s a space for a hand axe on the side, though I’m sure your nalgeen could fit just as easily. Be sure to take a visit to Archival Clothing as well to check out some more great bags.
