Knapsack - U.S.Army Regulation M1853/55 Non-Rigid type. With shoulder straps and brass hooks.

Configuration based on the original pattern. This regulation pattern consisting of two bags or compartments, a front section that folded into a partial envelope and rear section made of four triangular flaps that buckled together, joined by a top strip with two sewn leather loops for the blanket straps.

Knapsack was fitted with leather shoulder straps that terminated with brass attachment points allowing for connection to the armpit and adjustable cross (breast) straps. Leather straps throughout, with hide type ties on the inside bag like the original. Brass hardware and black roller buckles make this suitable for both US and CS usage. Tabs sewn onto the top to accommodate the blanket roll straps.

By all period accounts the most commonly issued type of field pack capable of carrying 40 to 50 pounds of personal kit. Found in an infinite number of variations including state models and examples made for the militia, sometimes with stenciled unit designation.

Size: 14" (35.5cm) x 16" (41cm)

Features a three point harness, a four flap (envelope) top pocket and a one flap bottom pocket measuring 12.5" (32cm) x 13.5" (34cm) x 5" (12cm) deep

Weight : 1kg
