Overview

Overview

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.

Upgrade your straps! Enhance your pack with our premium buckskin padded shoulder straps. Cut from the same burly bridle leather and built with the same care, attention to detail and cushy closed-cell foam as in our canoe and bushcraft packs, this is an upgrade in both style and function. Please note that upgrading to the buckskin straps may require us to spend extra time building your pack. All of our buckskin comes from real, wild deer hides, so each one is a little different and may show scars & evidence of life lived in the wilds of North America. They’ll most definitely be worth the wait!
