I'm more into bushcrafting, these types of materials better suite my style and more field repairable imo.

If there was a practical way to bring along a 14'' dutch oven, you can bet I'd bring it with me. lol
Why? Because I can.
They held up fine, I'm confident these Frost River packs will outlast any other pack I have. Will a super heavy backpack always be my choice? Heck no! But theres something about these old fashioned pieces of gear, that really appeal to me.
