As you might know, we are so very Hi-Tech around here…
Our R&D department was given the mission by High Command to design a simple haversack to carry inter-web computing machines in the field. Mission accomplished.
In other words, we made a new bag.
Its versatile size (approx 15” x 10” x 1.5”) allows our MF® denim haversack to house an average laptop computer, if designed post 1975. MacBook Air®, MacBook Pro® 15”, iPad® etc…
Will slide in easily and go to sleep in a warm and soft corduroy inner lining.
The strap is not adjustable, feature that is often an overkill on shoulder bags. A zip-up outer pocket will hold charger, USB, iPod and/or other supplies.
Our haversack is NOT shockproof, nor is it waterproof. So if you have an urge to boil it (?) make sure your computer is not inside. It’s perfect however to haul around or store your portable computer gear while about town or traveling.
We used assorted New Old Stock selvedge denim for the outer part. The 100% cotton corduroy lining is similar to that used as pocket warmer on older 10 button USN Pea-coats. The shoulder straps are made from US military webbing, a New Old Stock from 1966. The gray closure cotton woven canvas straps are recycled vintage military accouterments parts. The zippers we used are vintage NOS 60's-70's “Serval” metal zipper, with cotton HBT taping.
An original Mister Freedom® pattern, inspired by early French military WWI musettes, ‘bread pouches’, and other military personal effect haversacks.
* Outer: NOS selvedge indigo denim, assorted origins (USA and Japan), about 12.5 Oz.
* Lining: 100% cotton corduroy, NOS, early USN peacoat ‘pocket warmer’ style.
TRIMS: Vintage 1966 NOS military cotton/fortisan shoulder strap and recycled military closure strap with hand stitched metal buckle.
No outside labeling, but an ID cotton patch under the flap, ready for your custom markings.

Washable when needed, inside out recommended, gentle cycle with minimal environmentally friendly mild detergent. We have already cold soaked/line dried the haversack to offer them ‘preshrunk’. They are ready to go, ready to get a nice patina from natural use and abuse.
* All MADE IN USA
* There are NO overlocked seams (the low road we always thrive not to take), all clean seams inside and out, with a concealed use of the denim selvedge.
