Historically one of our most popular packs. And it does have history. It is a reproduction of writer George Washington Sears’ (a.k.a Nessmuk’s) old Maine guide pack from the 1880′s. Popular for a reason, it is a great size! Perfect for a day’s load of gear and even more if you pack right and have compressible stuff. It also works great as a second pack on a canoe trip. A long single pocket on one side, shorter twin pockets vertically stacked on the other side. Inside. there is a smaller hanging pocket and a slip pocket at the front of the pack. The Nessmuk has a leather grab handle and is built at Frost River from 18oz. waxed cotton canvas.
