I'm new here, sent you a pm on this rucksack.

Welcome to B & B Bill, I sent you a PM.

I'm glad you like it, I wish our respective postal services would have gotten it to you a bit faster.  Next time you want something I may have to convince my wife that a romantic trip to Niagara Falls is in order and deliver it personally O:-)

Just a bump to let everyone know I have a few of these in stock and ready to ship.

For details see the first post in this thread.

Thanks all.

USPS International First Class is $23.95 for one ruck, for two it would be $41.12

Recent change, actually.. Roundabouts the beginning of this year. I used to be able to send small parcels to Canada for a couple bucks but now it's $4 and change. I can send stuff to the UK cheaper.

Mike,

I just got in one of the Italian Rucks. It's in great shape, doesn't look like it's been used at all. It's the perfect size for my intent. I'm planning on using this as my trunk bag, ready to go on an adventure at a moments notice. Thanks for the quick response and quick shipping.

Greg,

I'm glad you like it. 

I'm a big fan of this size bag for a day bag/ emergency/ bug out/ go bag.  Whatever you want to call it.

I call it a handy size.

Just wanted to give an update on these great backpacks. Jontok graciously sent the wife and I a pair of Wilderbeast's  backpacks for birthday gifts. These packs are the bomb! They hold more than they appear to handle, thick canvas with a water resistant coating inside. The pack as is fits my wife perfectly, she is 5'8". I'm a fraction over 6' and the pack was a little tight on my shoulders. I replaced the original straps with some Alice straps and lengthened the bottom straps so that they can carry my wool blanket or shelter half with a woobie. Now the pack is VERY comfortable and rides well on my back and shoulders.

These packs can be great as daypacks or even for a long weekend loadout! They are easy to modify and are bomb proof! Thanks again to Jontok for the packs and thanks to Wilderbeast for the great pack selection!

Darren,

Welcome to Blades & Bushcraft and thanks for stopping by my "store".

I replied to your PM.  I do have several of these rucks in stock.

I am always looking for a comfortable way to carry whatever I need to carry. Going heavy or going light.  Well, I just found the best carry ever. I added Tactical Tailor shoulder straps to my ruck.

This shoulder rig is astonishing.

I recommend the combo.

Had mine going on two years now; still love it.  I use it nearly every week to haul Scout junk, haul it around as a daypack at camp.  Only change Ive made is I added a BnB patch to the flap.  I am planning to replace the funky metal clips with plastic modular clips.  I did find a molle pouch will (barely) fit in the strap across the front.
