haversack backpack The haversack can be traced to the year 1855 and especially during the time of the civil war.

Haversack bags are never out of season and throughout the years, instead of disappearing, they have become more and more popular with added styles and benefits.

The beauty of a haversack bag is its durability, its versatility, its design, its variety and its features.


Haversacks are usually made from leather, nylon (water resistant nylon as well), polyester, fustian, whisper fleece, kordura and vinyl. In the pass as well as the present, soldiers have been using haversacks on their missions. Children, day in and day out have been forcing them into lockers, dropping them on the play ground and jogging them up and down as they run.


A haversack can be taken practically anywhere and I do mean anywhere. It can be used for carrying school supplies, camping necessities and hiking gears. It is perfect for a trip to the store and astronauts have been using it for carrying food into outer space.


The haversack is usually designed as top loaders and front loaders. The top loader is packed from the top of the bag and is great for cross country outings because of its large storage capacity. As for the front loaders, these are accessible from the front, that is, quick and easy access to your gear. There are day packs and there are expedition packs. The day pack is designed for short outings, such as a day of hiking and the expedition pack, like its name suggests, is suitable for cross country camping.


Even though it is more heighten during the "back to school" periods, the backpack can be found in abundance throughout the year. There is a backpack for carrying laptops, cameras, volleyballs and even skateboards and that's not all, there are backpacks for carrying a baby car seat or a booster seat.


The backpack have loads of practical and attractive features. There are waist and shoulder support straps (foam-padded), with multiple compartments and hydro-pack systems. There's front, bottom & side pockets. You can have zippers, and laces to reinforce the zippers. Your choice, whether multi-color or a favorite single color. There're also longer backpacks as well as shorter backpacks, big and small. There are backpacks with wheels and backpacks without. There are backpacks specially designed with the curve of the body in mind and recently one have been publicize that was designed with the storage and playing of the ipod (while in the bag) in mind.


Haversack bags are never out of style, it is strong, versatile, practically designed, the variety is numerous and its features helps to make a trip pleasurable. After finding the perfect haversack for one's needs, it can become a travel companion that will be hard to part with.
