The Geologist Pack was inspired by James Byron Hustad and has many features that make durable and ready for your next adventure. The classic knapsack design was kept in-mind while designing this bag.

Roaming the North Country in search of Iron Ore can lead an intrepid young geologist into all sorts of adventure. James Byron Hustad was known as J.B.H. had explored Minnesota’s Iron Range in search of underground deposits for U.S. Steel in the middle of the last century. Equipped with his trusty “rucksack” he would often travel by canoe or float plane into secluded roadless areas. Our Geologist Daypack is modeled after the pack that J.B.H. carried on many of his explorations in the U.S. and Canada, Brazil and Africa. He often basecamped for weeks during the summer, and was sometimes dropped off to explore uncharted claims. He lived a life of exploration, self reliance, and survival that any adventurer could envy. Our Geologist Pack is modeled after the classic knapsack design of a drawstring topped main compartment with a flap cover. We've added more volume over the knapsack, plus rugged bridle leather shoulder straps and brass Sam Brown Post quick released front pockets. As with everything we make, it's built by hand from waxed canvas, premium leather and solid brass hardware and is backed by our lifetime guarantee.

    Geologist Pack

    Just prefect for a day of deer hunting. Very well built, I do think the straps could be a tad longer for extra clothing needed at this time of year. Also would like to see a choice of waxed or leather padded straps.
