Deer Stalking Rucksack

High performance deer stalking rucksack

In collaboration with Musto, I designed a Deer Stalking rucksack that could also be used on an everyday basis. Musto prides itself on having lead the technical apparel clothing and accessory market for over 50 years, combining expertise in engineering innovation with the authentic traditions of the shooting market. Over the course of this project I have worked closely with a range of industry experts and deerstalkers, with this amalgamation being at the core of the design. Not only have a wide range of innovative textiles been used to ensure a high standard of performance, but they have been carefully selected to retain a traditional and classic aesthetic. The rucksack comes with a wide range of features to help aid the hunter in the field: from an Air Flow system for added comfort; to an innovative dragging mechanism, which allows the user to drag quarry.
