The original military backpack was called a “rucksack”, and appeared around the time of the American Civil War to aid infantrymen in the transportation of bulky weaponry and medical supplies.The use of backpacks has been around long before Americans coined the term “backpack” in the early 1900s. Initially used by hunters to carry their gear or gatherers to carry their harvest, backpacks have always been an integral tool to humans. Our Rucksack + Knapsacks is a total original from when we started building bags. A heavy favorite and a head turner for sure.
