MiddleEarthRangers.org has graciously provided this space for the Middle Earth Reenactment Society for purposes of archiving/presenting their newsletter, and to keep our community informed on Society-specific happenings.
Over the coming weeks and months, the MERS will be presenting a string of videos showing various traveller's packs and other necessaries from the inside out. None of these videos will show a complete kit, but rather one smaller aspect of the whole. Starting out, we are unpacking a Third Age Ranger's snapsack, and will continue on in the future to cover various packs, belts, bedrolls, and more!

I've never noticed any flavor transfer at all. That Goosebay Workshops tin box has a pretty wide overlap of the two halves, so it's pretty well sealed. Can't hardly even smell it through the tin.

That's a great pack. Everything you need and not too big.
Thanks! I've been cutting out the stuff I don't need for a VERY long time. Just bear in mind...this doesn't cover my belt, weapons, or bedroll, so there IS more...but it all follows the same philosophy.
I really like the format, no talk, no cheesy 'insert random medieval tune'
Does the cattail mat do much to break ground contact? Or does the chill still seep through?
But the white fury of the Northmen burned the hotter, and more skilled was their knighthood with long spears and bitter. Fewer were they but they clove through the Southrons like a fire-bolt in a forest.
