"Made Without Compromise from the Highest Quality Materials"
Here's what Frost River say about their Nessmuk Pack:
Historically one of our most popular backpacks. And it does have history. It is a reproduction of writer George Washington Sears' (a.k.a Nessmuk's) old Maine guide pack from the 1880's. Popular for a reason, it is a great size!
Perfect for a day's load of gear and even more if you pack right and have compressible stuff. It also works great as a second pack on a canoe trip.
A long, single 2-in-1 pocket on one side, shorter twin 2-in-1 pockets vertically stacked on the other side (2-in-1 pockets allow storage of long, flat items to be stored between the pocket and and pack body). Inside, there is a smaller hanging pocket and a slip pocket at the front of the pack. The Nessmuk has a leather grab handle and is built at Frost River from 18oz. waxed cotton canvas.
