Your prey is almost within range, tentative as she catches a whiff of something in the air. You have covered yourself in the dirt of the forest and smell more like pine than person, but the deer still seems uncertain. She steps forward and you pull back the string on your loaded bow.
With a sharp ‘thwap!’ your arrow hits its mark, clean and perfect. As you approach, pulling out your dressing knife from inside your RFB Backpack, you can see that your arrow was a painless end to a noble creature…and your dinner.
Epic Armoury’s Ready-for-Battle backpack is a frameless rucksack that can hold up to 9000 cubic cm (or about 9 liters). Made from reinforced cotton canvas and chrome-tanned plated leather, it straps onto the wearer using sturdy cotton cords.
The backpack’s interior has one compartment about 40 cm deep and approximately 20 cm in diameter. Its oval top is reinforced with leather set with large eyelets, and closes by pulling its cotton cord drawstring running through the eyelets. The bottom of the backpack is anchored by heavy leather patches.
The Ready-for-Battle Backpack is made especially for young players. It is big enough to hold essentials like a water bottle, dry socks and a sweater, but it is still small enough to bring along on LARP adventures. On the front there is a leather patch for writing contact information.
Available in Brown. One size fits all.
