Canvas Bags
Traditional canvas bags having been used right through from before the first world war which at that time were essential for load carrying, person items and general kit not forgetting the very important “Gas Mask Bag” usually big enough for the mask setup and a spare filter all in one compartment and then slung over the shoulder using the strap. Today we have several versions of this type of bag which are small single strapped Haversacks not unlike a gas mask bag or larger Web Packs which can take a couple of A4 sized files and has two straps which can either be used combined as a single strap or used separately and configured and used as a rucksack on both shoulders. A Larger version of the web pack, the Web Rucksack has additional side and front pockets for extra storage and has large rucksack straps on the back. Also used from bygone military days are the traditional Kit Bags which are canvas cylinders open at one end with a small side carrying handle. The shoulder strap forms part of the bags metal loop and pin closing mechanism at the top, although once closed it performs excellently and is load bearing. All the canvas & webbing bags are of a simple design but really work well and are every popular with school & college kids and people who want a decent day to day bag knowing it will last them too.
