Oilskin Haversack

(21 customer reviews)



The Oilskin Haversack – Made by my friends at Panther Primitives here in the USA (same as the Canteen shop and Pathfinder, however my price is usually lower and without the goofy stitched on logo which I can’t help but think would compromise the waterproofing) is perfect for light scouts and day hikes. Perfect carry size, and a must for period reenactments. Heavy duty construction, double stitched, reinforced 2″ wide chest strap, repels water, and has an inner pocket under the flap.

This is my only carry when climbing the 14’rs in Colorado!! (please note the picture on the summit of Mt. Elbert, I ended up carrying a brothers pack that packed a little too heavy — no names mentioned for anonymity (ha)!) And as Kevin states in the video below it does double as a great pillow (as the picture shows at the trailhead, post climb!)


  • Measures 12″ x 14″
  • Pocket inside the flap for extra storage
  • Handcrafted


Made in USA

    Haven’t had a chance to use it yet but it is excellent craftsmanship and the perfect dive for short hikes or for venturing away from camp. Looking forward to putting it to use.

    Not exactly what I was looking for
    The main reason why i chose your product is because you advertised the bag having a 2″ wide strap. The bag I received has a 1″ wide strap. Your product description and video both say 2″ wide. Not feeling very excited about your product.

    Value for money!
    Perfect, thanks. Low profile. No need to add branding and leather trim. Recommend. Today I’ll use it to pack water bottles and sun screen to a soccer game.

    Oilskin Haversack
    Great quality from what i can tell. Fits a good amount of outdoor gear without being too bulky. No company logos is a big plus

  19. Michael C.

    Was really great service for sure

    Never “obsolete”
    A simple, well-made piece of kit that endured for good reason: centuries later , it still serves its purpose.

    The haversack is a multi-climate, weather resistant item that can be maintained (repaired/re waxed etc.) long term as opposed to the “throw-away” culture of today. A proven, useful item that is timeless. The absence of any tough-guy “looky here!” logo enhances its utility as a low profile travel Item. Well done!
