1800's British Hardpacks
Victor Soto and Douglas Larsen drew upon inspiration from the past. Specifically the British Hardpacks of the late 1800's which made their way into the New York Militia in 1861. We thought a flexible removable structure would work best and built interchangeable packs to further expand our organization efforts.
We settled on using Premium Grade Twill as our main material for its strength and durability as well as using bits of leather to finish off the details.
