U.S. Army Regulation Model 1855 Double Bag Knapsack (Blanket roll strap included in price)

Double-Bag Knapsack is a non-rigid (soft pack) with two bags that range in size from 12" to 14" for each bag. We use 3 different cloths in our knapsacks. Materials vary from a coarse linen canvas, a cotton drill and even a striped ticking. They are mid-war and 100% hand sewn, painted black and equipped with period hardware.
These double-bag knapsacks were copied from 3 different originals from The Gettysburg National Military Park, private collection of S& S Sutler, private collection of S.G. Marinos.
