Here is my wool bowhunting daypack in the old Trebark pattern. I bought it from Screaming Eagle when Too Short was at the helm back in the day. It has served me well and is just perfect for my whitettail hunting adventures. It has four compartments, two being on the side for water bottles and two running down the middle. The zippers were of excellent quality, and the pack was totally silent being made of wool but it is finally beginning to wear out. Another example of if you really like something buy two! Some of the gang here have given me leads on a new pack and it is greatly appreciated, but I sure wish I knew who made these or where I could find another. Even a plaid pattern would be a great idea! If I was a rich man (as the song goes) I would commission someone to make one just like it! TLM

That looks like the perfect pack. I’ve been looking for something like that. My wife got me a Badlands a few years ago but gave it to my son. To loud to me. Went back to an old field line. I’m sure Boxcall could make it.

I've got one ~very similar~ to yours. Same old school trebark pattern. I think mine is a tad bigger pack than yours. Mine has been very lightly used and still in great shape. Youre right, they are hard to find anymore.

And mine has a liner in it. Never tested it for waterproof-ness, but it looks like it would be.

Looks like just the right size. I been shopping for one.

Boxcall, The bottom is wearing out from being dragged across all sorts of surfaces. It does have a liner beneath the wool on the center compartments. Water bottle pockets are just wool.

Darrren Mine repelled rain very well, but I tried not to stay out during a downpour. TLM

That is great looking too.! That pattern just disappears when you hang it in a tree especially here with northeast hardwoods. Are there any identifying labels on it? Mine has none, but like I said it may have been specially made for Paul Brunner and his catalog. TLM

Can the bad section be turned inside out.and can the seams be reached.if so a new piece could be sewed over the bad section.

You can look at Day One camo back pack, similar to yours but not the exact same but you can get it in wool or fleece etc.

On ebay Kathy Kelly sells a great back pack but it is in fleece, Ive had one for YEARS and wears well....the title for the pack is Quiet DELUX DAY PACK Fleece Woodland Camouflage/Camo Hunting Archery Photography You might contact them to see if there are different patterns available

!. Patch bottom (even if have to hand sew

2> Tenzing has something simulated at Bass Pro not wool

3. Bison Gear does custom work; the lost river with out the side waist straps and with just regular back pack straps?

It has a white canvass type liner below the worn section. I will examine it closer, but you are probably right that it could be repaired. Maybe I can find some wool Trebark. If not wool plaid would probably do. TLM

I've never seen a label on it anywhere. I bought it in an archery shop around 1990 when I was a compound bow mechanic in that shop for several years. I do know its a quality, well-made pack. Seems like I paid around $90 for it back in '90.

If you need some trebark ,I have some fairly sturdy twill trebark fabric.

Boxcall, Thanks I'm going to explore all the options! I really need to get a closer look at the seams. TLM

I researched one of my old Screaming Eagle catalogs. It says in the pack description that they were hand made by Screaming Eagle. Too Shorts says they're as silent as an owl gliding through the night sky. I sure miss Screaming Eagle.

I have the same brand, I assume, back pack. Looks exactly like yours but about 1/2 again larger. Great pack, but I don't use it around here. No tags anywhere on it.

1. Paul Brunner does occasionally sign on either here or on Tradgang and you MIGHT be able to get the source out of him.

2.Have a seamstress or a saddlemaker overlay the bottom with a leather piece. I repaired my fleece Catquiver pack several times with leather patches and just glue.... but then the box broke and I had to buy a new one.

3. Check out Johnson Woolen Mill in Johnson,Vermont. They make a medium sized all wool backpack in a wide variety of color patterns. They are hanging everywhere when you walk into the store. I have no idea as to whether they might take on a customizing job, but you just never know unless you ask

Sew a piece of leather across the bottom and go again. That's what I would do. If, of course, it can be saved.

Get a piece of a good wool blanket and have it patched, if it don't match, who cares, it's not a fashion show. It does look like a nice design.

You have to love the LW! Besides the great advice on how to fix my daypack, I went to the Johnson Woolen mills site as suggested, and found a great looking wool pack, with multiple plaid patterns. One almost matches my Filson gray /black cruiser which is my go to outer layer! Thanks to all! I'm going to try a repair, or just maybe Sanny Clause will get me a new one!! TLM
