    I have one like that. I think it was sold as a Yugoslavian daypack, my dad bought 3 of them from Sportsman Guide I think and gave one to me and one to my brother. I used it it when was hunting in Colorado. I liked it but I did not have a proper load, a learning curve. If memory serves correctly I had...
    A space blanket tarp
    Some paracord
    A MRE entree and spoon
    Match safe
    Gerber strike force ferro rod
    Iodine water disinfectant pills, but the streams were dried up
    Map of the area.
    Battle dressing
    Israel water canteen
    My skinning knife, Old Timer Schrade 1410T from my dad that I still have
    20190719_185313.jpg

    I had my compass and gps in seperate jacket pockets. I carried a 6V flashlight as it was the brightest flashlight at the time.

    Looking back I am not so sure I would have been able to start a fire if I had to. I have learned alot since then you could say :)

    GOD Bless you and your families

    Just ordered one of these. I have the size M and I really like it for short outings, fair weather. Tried a few tactical style sling bags. They don't work for me. To date, I have used the size M for short hunts with my shotgun, and hiking with the retrievers. The quality is top shelf.

    Here’s my faithful Polish Gas Mask Bag riding shotgun.
    21420FDD-C6FC-40E0-918F-B47ED816B92E.jpeg
    Internally it has two main pockets plus a flat one up front.
    B20C49F0-E5FF-4502-BF4E-A0DDF7DD612D.jpeg
    The small outside pocket contains a flint and steel kit, pocket bellows, compass, and rosary.
    F31E377A-B9D4-4FE2-BACB-D7DBBA104996.jpeg
    Side pocket all packed up.
    98FB5972-BD41-4885-8683-DD19C1D765A8.jpeg
    One side of the main compartment contains my Brown Dog roll top ditty bag. I’ve got a sharpening kit, No. 36 bankline, little headlamp, ferro rod with fatwood handle, coffee, ear protection, and a Leatherman.
    5C1E03B1-52D4-468F-A32C-00B844D7AE10.jpeg
    The other half of the main compartment. Bottle, cup, and spork.
    03CCEBE1-C45B-480C-8DDE-D860D903F512.jpeg
    Flat compartment. Notebook with pencil, and a space blanket. The lid to my cup actually rises here too, but it made more sense to include it in the picture with the cup.
    2F0F6EA0-023A-4A17-BE37-4730F0E201AF.jpeg
    The internal divider has a little pocket and a tin for lenses for the gas mask. I filled it up with fun stuff. Hand forged fish hooks, bone needle, real and fake sinew, snare wire, etc.

    Last thing. This whistle with wood spirit (a gift from @Luchtaine ) rides tethered inside the compartment with my water bottle.

    Good looking load outs there my Haversack I'll try to get pics of it later when I can but I tend to use it more of an extension of my main pack for those fast items i want and not have to drop my pack or if im just going for a simple walk I keep a note book and some field guides in it.

    Some good colors to NOT lose in the leaves.

    Hey yall. Just wanted to add my two sense. Ive seen several people that say they hate the way they swing forward when stalking or moveing thru brush. I just wanna say that im my experience and the way that works best for me is if u adjust the strap up so instead of being at your hip or at arms lenght the haversack rides with the body at the elbow. Then when stalking thru brish the bag can be held in place with your elbow. Works especially well if carry a rifle. I always carry my haversack on my left side because i carry my black powder shooting bag and horn on my right side for ease of loading. Just my thoughts n what works for me.

    True enough. I've made a consented effort to make the items in my BushClass PSK more visible and should get to work on my regular pack contents. Thanks for the reminder! I'm often torn between wanting to blend in with the environment and not wanting to lose stuff. ;)

    I'll bet that many hiking trails and camping areas are littered with camo flashlights, SAK's, and binoculars.

    I once left my favourite wooden spoon behind after having lunch in the bush. When I retraced my steps the next day, there it was. PHEW!! Dropping my sunglasses twice this Summer was no fun either. Maybe I need to put alarms on them like my car has. LOL!

    I would just like to know is it advisable to just have your 5 C’s in your haversack? I carry a haversack and rucksack . I like the idea that I can leave my ruck at camp and go out with my haversack as it is prepared and prepacked. Does anyone else do this?

    I think it’s a fine idea. Hike your own hike!

    So I recently went on a family outing and in an exercise of curiosity I started with an empty haversack and only added the items I found I needed frequently. Here's what I wound up with:
    20190914_205320.jpg Some cotton t-shirt material, headlamp, nylon cord, ferro rod, medicine bag, micro first aid kit, tissues and a couple extra pocket knives for teaching the boys.

    I guess I had better get with the program. I do not carry anything in my haversack. It goes with me simply as a sack to put stuff in when I am foraging.

    We had a lot of water at the campsite and plenty in the well. While I agree with you on this trip we were never more than 200yds from the campsite.

    That is a good use! I usually have a Walmart bag I keep in mine to gather what I need!
