A backpack — also called bookbag, kitbag, knapsack, rucksack, pack, or sackpack — is, in its simplest form, a cloth sack carried on one's back and secured with two straps that go over the shoulders, but there can be variations. Lightweight types of backpacks are sometimes worn on only one shoulder strap.
Backpacks are commonly used by hikers and students, and are often preferred to handbags for carrying heavy loads or carrying any sort of equipment, because of the limited capacity to carry heavy weights for long periods of time in the hands.
Large backpacks, used to carry loads over 10 kg (22 lbs), as well as smaller sports backpacks (e.g. running, cycling, hiking and hydration), usually offload the largest part (up to about 90%) of their weight onto padded hip belts, leaving the shoulder straps mainly for stabilising the load. This improves the potential to carry heavy loads, as the hips are stronger than the shoulders, and also increases agility and balance, since the load rides nearer the wearer's own center of mass.
In ancient times, the backpack was used as a means to carry the hunter's larger game and other types of prey and as a way of easier transport for other materials. In the cases of larger hunts, the hunters would dismember their prey and distribute the pieces of the animal around, each one packing the meat into many wrappings and then into bags which they placed on to their backs. The bag itself would be made up of animal hide and skin and sewn together by animal intestines, which would be woven together tightly to make a sturdy thread-like material.
I have for sale 2 Cannae pro gear tactical backpacks. They are both the same Legion model, the black one is a little nicer, it has an extra panel on the back and a water proof bottom, but the zipper on the eye wear pouch has broken. Other than that it is clean and all other functions work. The...
Bought this setup from Sportsman's Warehouse and only used a couple times in freshwater only to discover Baitcasters aren't for me. Everything is still in excellent condition, stored inside. Has 12lb Maxima monofilament line on the reel. $80 firm.

I bought this a few years ago, used it for a couple of seasons. I do not remember the model name, but it’s an archery specific pack, but I used it for hunting with a rifle as well. They designed these to be all about being quiet. The material is tough, but soft like a fleece or felt. The inside...

I have been looking for something to take out for scouting, hunting, or shooting days in the woods. Looking for something that has modularity with molle or attachment points, decent capacity, but simple.
I know there is a lot of tacticool BS out there, but I have looked at some...
USMC Marine Corps Marpat ILBE main pack. No broken buckles or straps. Most these packs are missing the hip belts or top cover. Everything is there including the divider on the inside of the pack. Great pack but it is simply taking up to much room at this point and time.
I also have multiple...

Pretty much complete, but fair condition. Lots of little holes and rips. Closeups of two hasty repairs I did. All buckles are present and accounted for, and the waist belt has extra long belt sections that I added to it for up to 4XL guys. Ordered a new pad and frame set for one of my self-made...
