Canvas Bags and Backpacks

Military Backpacks covers a wide selection of types of packs. The first section of this blog article is about canvas military packs and bags. The Military Packs over the last 50 years have evolved from a canvas backpack with a bedroll to new nylon Cordura backpacks with multiple compartments and MOLLE attachment systems. Evolution of backpacks is discussed here. Military backpack did not evolve at the same rate as the hiking backpacking world. It is only in the last 20 years that the US military began to change it's backpacks from 50's and 60's era technology and two of the experiments the CFP 90 and Molle Backpack were never fielded in great quantities.

What has proved useful for us in the Civilian world were many of the military pack and military shoulder bags of the 60's. When we first started in the army navy business in the early 80's there were tons of cool packs and shoulder bags around, unfortunately most of these items are gone now and we have commercially made packs and bags, below are some examples of backpacks:
