    I bought a The Hidden Woodsmen Haversack and turned it into an essentials gear pack. What do you think?

    I know this is an older thread, but... I think that's pretty awesome actually. I have to wonder how it carries with the blanket weight added to a full haversack.

    That is a pretty nice set up. I'm not a haversack fan personally, but that's a cool looking set up.

    If it works for you then awesome! I believe for me i would prefer to share that much weight and bulk over two shoulders.

    For the last 7 years I've used a Red Oxx Air Boss for weekly air travel. Agreed it's not for everyone but I've gotten used to it. I wouldn't want to hike with that much weight on a shoulder strap, but I could if I had to. And I bet @happyjackotter's setup weighs a lot less than the 30 pounds I've been carrying. :)

    It does carry well. A wider strap would be a bit better to spread out the load. I normally put the heavier items in a back pack and keep my go to items and tools in The Haversack. This was more of an example of simplicity of kit. Everything you need in one small package.
