Helikon Bushcraft Haversack Bag

Helikon Bushcraft Haversack Bag

While there is a lot to be said for a backpack, the good old game bag or ‘haversack’ design can also serve as a great way to carry your gear. The single shoulder strap allows you to carry the bag at your side, where it is quickly and easily accessible and you do not have to take it off to mount and shoot your rifle.

Total refresh

Helikon’s Bushcraft Haversack brings a very modern build to an old fashioned design. This light and sturdy bag is very well made and is packed with useful features. Made from durable Cordura 500D Fabric, and incorporating YKK zippers and quality plastic buckles, the bag is built to the same high standard you always get from Helikon. Weighing just 470-grams, it is extremely light and with a total capacity of eight litres, there is room for plenty of gear.

The main compartment is secured under a large flap closure, with a strong fastener on the outside and two smaller zippered sleeve pockets inside for secure storage of smaller items. There is also an elasticated mesh inner pocket, which is perfect for holding a drinks container vertically. Plus, there is a D-ring for securing keys. A large front pocket allows you to keep key items easily to hand and it also contains a further D-ring attachment point.

On the back of the bag is a large zippered compartment that’s perfect for storing the allimportant FAC, valuables and other documents. An organiser insert can be purchased separately, for under £7, to add more slip pockets and two elasticated ribbon loops if required.

There is more

On the outside of the bag, a sleeve pocket at one end allows you to carry an axe or foldable shooting sticks. An open pocket at the other end provides easily accessible storage for anything you need close to hand. There are also several MOLLE/ PALS compatible attachment points on the outside of the bag, in case you want to add any accessories.

You can carry the haversack using the 50mm wide, adjustable shoulder strap or the grab handle. They are both very strong and comfortable, even when the bag is fully loaded. The haversack also has a flat bottom, which means that when correctly packed, it will stand up and so keep all your gear safe when you place it down.

Conclusion

This bag is ideal for a day out rough shooting or doing a bit of pest control. With plenty of storage space and a very comfortable carry that does not interfere with you shouldering your gun, you can keep your gear close by your side and not have to worry about having to take it off to get to your equipment or take a shot. The build quality is great and the fastener on the flap can be operated silently, so you will not disturb your quarry.

If you are looking for an alternative to a backpack, to carry a relatively small load, the Helikon Bushcraft Haversack Bag is a great choice.
