    Awesome as always with your work, love the fine details to a very practical bit of kit.

    It's stronger than you think, I use it for buckles and clasps all the time. I'll be testing my packs out more over the next year to see how the buckles hold up

    Just a thought. Wouldn’t it be great to get a New Year’s Eve post every year to see how the packs doing. I think you’ll have a task for life Hamish

    Great idea, will look even more stunning as the leather 'weathers' over the years.

    I don't know, it's kind of ugly. I think you send it me while you make something truly beautiful...:D

    In seriousness, it is truly a beautiful ruck!goodjob Have you though about maybe adding a small wooden frame?

    I made a wooden fold out chair frame for this pack: https://bushcraftuk.com/community/index.php?threads/leather-rucksack.147019/

    But i'm happy keeping this second pack lighter for shorter trips. for now anyway ;) or perhaps i'll just make another!
