David Uhl Design Hand Sewn Linen Two Strap Pack

$ 125 USD

For those of you doing a militia impression this is a great pack for you. Many sites who are striving for progressive Rev War impressions are recommending this style pack for those who join them for living history events. This two strap pack is based on the surviving pack carried by Capt. David Uhl, a captain of militia in the Revolution. Uhl saw service with the New York Dutchess County Militia beginning in Harlem in 1776. Our pack, made from heavy linen material, is hand sewn and the design is based on the pack carried by Uhl. The body of the bag is approximately 19”x18” and the straps are entirely had sewn using the same fabric as the bag. We use hand cast pewter buttons for the flap closure. The original had a piece of material sewn on the straps to help pull the straps together. We use a leather thong on ours in order that you can adjust as needed based on chest size and equipment load. Please allow 4-5 weeks from order until shipment.
