Meet the P.A.C.K. One Canvas Knapsack

  • Made in USA.
  • Heavy Duty Construction
  • Completely Customizable
  • Very Lightweight
  • UNDER $50

It’s really a solid, no frills day bag with about 700ci. of space, two lid pockets, double stitching, and comes with a blank slate for you to customize.  So who are you?  Because the answer is directly proportionate to your gear.  Maybe your pack will be dyed brown with a natural walnut dye like that of the traditional woods loafer.  Perhaps it will be waxed and have group patches sewn all over it to show your interests.   Either way, it’s a blank canvas waiting for you to express yourself.

Here is what Jeff from MTC says:

“Personally Accessorized Canvas Knapsack model One. This bag was created to fill the need for a simple no nonsense light pack that is American made and doesn’t break the bank, The P.A.C.K. One can be utilized as is but is intended to be modified by the user to personalize it for their needs”.

Let’s get on the the features of the P.A.C.K. 1

  • 15 oz. cotton canvas, undyed so that it can be waterproofed or custom dyed by the owner.
  • 22” × 17” envelope design— approx. capacity of 10-15 lbs normal load, or 700 inch³ approximate volume.
  • 2 Carry Options— Two straps for over shoulder backpack carry, and a hand carry strap for off-shoulder hand carry
  • Double stitching on all strap attatchment points
  • Main-flap nylon buckle with secure closure
  • 2 inner pockets with velcro closures

Jeff also said that you can do this:

“YOU personalize YOUR bag YOUR way. Want a certain color? The P.A.C.K. One accepts most commonly available dyes you can apply at home. Want to add on a loop or a grommet or a pocket? The P.A.C.K. One’s canvas is easily modified by a good sail needle, scissors and some thread. Field care and repair is easy as well. If you wish you may treat the heavy canvas of the P.A.C.K. One to repel water with any number of waterproofing options.”
