Some things never really go out of style. The Gentleman's Shooting Bag, Possibles Bag, or Man-Purse; whatever you call it, it's an indispensable item for the wilderness traveller, and has, in one form or another, been carried by outdoorsmen the world over for many centuries. I seem to be somewhat stuck in the 18th century or before when it comes to fashion so this era informed my choice of this design.
Centuries of tweaking have given us a well thought-out design that is perfect for a myriad of tasks, from keeping shooting supplies, an extensive survival kit, or a lunch. The concave arched top keeps the bag situated over the hip and an adjustable strap suits all weather clothing or attachment to a backpack. This bag is more complex than it looks and is arguably more work than some larger projects and, because of the pockets, requires more planning during construction.
