MERCHANT and MILLS • RTR Rucksack Pattern
Claim your right to roam with this fine rucksack on your back. Make it in traditional British oilskin or a sturdy canvas. Fully lined with 3 divided internal pockets. The pattern includes a cross-body bag as an alternative.
The samples in the photos are made from Dry Oilskin.
All the hardware and leather required to make this bag is included the RTR Rucksack Hardware Kit. We recommend that you use a cotton lining. Please also note, you need to use a thin leather for the strap so that it fits through the buckles, Merchant and Mills recommend their split cowhide leather straps which are thinner, alternatively if sourcing your own, test before you buy if you can.
Pattern Errata: Pattern piece 10 (handle): The gap between the rivet holes should be 6cm on each side. It is currently 5cm on one side and 6cm on the other.
This is an intermediate pattern.
