Linen Haversack

3 reviews

Upgrade your haversack with this durable natural linen bag and matching strap and secured with two pewter buttons. In the 18th century, the haversack was a linen bag issued with food rations to soldiers, and the rendition we have constructed is perfect for your military impression. 

The word haversack originates from the Dutch term "haverzak" or "hafersach" meaning oat sack and denoting a bag of oats carried for horses.  In 1670 the French can be found using "havresac" to refer to a cavalry trooper's bag for horse provender. By 1735 we begin to find the English using "haversack" as a term.

    Haversack

    It was nicely made but the strap was over 9 inches to short to go over my neck and hang on my hip. So I just cut it and added the extra strapping to it.

    Linen Haversack

    This haversack has quality written all over it. The craftsmanship is right up on top. The weight is not to heavy and in the same respect not to light. Can't wait to use in the upcoming Memorial Day Parade and when i March to the Revolutionary War Cemetery to pay my respects to the the fallen and thank them for all they did to make this country free from foreign oppression. Thanks to Samson and the items I purchased over the years i will be a well dressed Soldier.
