    Hello fellow bushcrafters!
    I had some free time this afternoon to try and catch up on some things I said I was gonna do.. so.. here is what I think about the PNW Bushcraft orange waxed canvas ditty bag!
    15228779616062038463083.jpg
    Specs of this wounderous ditty bag of pumpkin colored awesomeness are as follows...
    $13.00 + shipping
    10.1 oz 100% cotton canvas
    Waxed with Martexin original
    This dude is 4.25" x 6.5" and had one Tandy snap closure
    It has both running stitches and whip stitching on the interior
    Top has a nice thick seam with the closure centered.
    The snap is a copper color looks good with the bag

    Don't let it's size fool ya, it actually holds a great deal more than it looks like it's capable of.
    Being waxed and orange not only is it durable.. but easily spotted if dropped in the bush, grass pritty much anywhere that doesn't have orange carpet.

    The capacity.. like I said it a lot more than you initially gather. It compresses nicely when not being used for my fire kit, but I would like to think it could be used for other things in the bush. Being waxed and water resistant it would make a excellent bag to gather tinder on the fly or just to go out.. fill up and bring back. Tho its fairly small its pritty bright. It could be possible to use this as a visual signal of some kind. It does get dirty rather quickly but is easily cleaned if that's something that matters to ya..
    What do I think.. well.. I like it! It is a smaller bag and really basic. But simplicity is not always a bad thing. It fits into the front pocket of my pants, back pocket, side pocket on my dickie work pants.. so pretty much any pants pocket including cargos with no problem. I feel that if the snap were to break it would still function for carrying what's in it.
    Only concern....if turned upside down depending on what the contents are something could fall out.. but as in all of Bushcraft.. common sence goes a long way.. This bag for myself works perfect for my fire kits, not everyone have the same needs kit wise.. but this works for me and well worth the money! 15228805460882018259799.jpg
    Quality product all the way.. Thanks guys n gals!

    Great review, thanks for sharing!

    Pumpkin colored -- there's a recent thread somewhere about an Altoids tin kit and how any realistic kit would need to be a bit larger. Perhaps this would contain that more realistic survival gear yet still fit in a cargo pocket.

    You should have gotten a bright color though, so you wouldn’t lose it. :p
