Traditionally, outdoor kit of many types has been made out of canvas. This is because this plain-woven fabric (typically made out of cotton and, to a lesser extent, linen) is durable, sturdy, and usually of a heavier duty. Also, by blending cotton with synthetic fibres, canvas can become water-resistant or even waterproof, making it a great outdoor fabric.
Canvas configurations Jack Pyke have long had a range of canvas products on their roster, with the roe sack being a long-time favourite. Now, they’ve recently expanded the range to include the Canvas Day Pack, Back Pack, Field Pack and Fold Top Rucksack.
The packs differ for specific scenarios and are graded by size and in certain instances, overall style. All have a heavy cotton canvas build, leather piping/trims combined with faux leather straps. For comfort, they feature padded shoulder straps in varying configurations, plus most have a padded back. Colour options for all of them include Canvas Brown, Canvas Fawn and Canvas Green.
The Canvas Day Pack measures approximately 43x30x40cm (height, depth, width) and is based on a classic rucksack design. It features a leather trim across the top flap which has a leather strap and buckle fastening, plus a leather grab handle. There are two side pockets and one front pocket, all secured with a strap and metal buckle.
The Jack Pyke Backpack measures approximately 45x20x32cm. A unique feature of this pack is its strong genuine leather base. It shows a leather grab handle and features a zipped main compartment and a single zipped front pocket. There’s a utility panel inside the main compartment that’s perfect for storing valuables and documents.
The JP Canvas Field Pack measures 43x21x38cm. This cosmetically appealing pack has decorative leather patches on the front, adjustable padded shoulder straps and a leather grab handle. The zipped front panel is perfect for storing valuables, documents, or a small tablet. The rucksack also features two side pockets with elasticated closure for smaller bits and pieces. Inside the zipped main compartment, there are small and medium utility compartments plus a large compartment with hook and loop closure. All ideal for organising kit that’s stored.
The Fold Top Rucksack measures 54x23x38cm. A unique pack in the range due to it including compression straps on either side to alter its size to suit the load. Also, while it has adjustable, padded shoulder straps like the others, it also boasts a removable sternum strap for extra comfort and security in usage. There’s an over the top leather strap to secure the large fold-over opening, plus a grab handle. Its zipped front pocket once again is perfect for storing small valuables or documents and inside the zippered main compartment, there’s a zip sealed inner pocket.
