Bag, Forage [SL-FB01]
It does what it's supposed to, it's a bag with a flap and a strap. I got the rust colored one and am happy with the unique color: brownish without being yet-another-generic-brown. The strap is too short for taller gents though, so I ended up giving it to my wife. When I wear it, the opening is right under the arm pit or right on my sternum and is difficult to access. A long strap version would be a nice variation. The bag also deform when heavy things get stuck in a corner, but that may be the fault of the design instead of manufacture... which as a historical recreation item may be seen as a compliment.
