For the price you can't go wrong

This thing looks like it will last for many, many years. It appears to be made of the same material as the brown bibs and duck jackets and the material is very durable. I was on the edge between this one and another that was a lot more expensive and a friend has this one. You usually get what you pay for, but in this case I really feel like this one lasts a lot longer. It feels a little heavier, but the downside is I need it to get through spikes, wire fences, etc, so it's worth a few extra ounces for durability. The only thing that I think should be improved is the "spare blade holder", the blade can move a lot more than I would like. If it has too much play, it can hit the sheath. In my opinion they made it so you can fit wider blades, but for a northern 21" they are a lot wider than I would like. The top folds down nicely to cover the head of your ax or smaller axe, which is fine but you still need something to cover the blade to protect you when it's slung over your shoulder when your ax is sharp which it should be, it's not a problem for me, mine Ax has a small leather sheath covering the blade.It fits perfectly on the shoulder as I carry it but you also have the option to remove the strap and attach it to a backpack.The extra knife pouch is a good option , but I always carry my knife on my belt so I use it for sharpening ax tools in case I need to bend the blade in the field.I noticed a few spots where the stitching was loose but a quick touch of the firez eugs fixed this problem. I don't think this will cause any problems but I use it often so I'll update if anything changes. If anyone is interested in impregnation, I used a block of beeswax. Rub it into the area and then use a hair dryer to turn it into a liquid, after which it will be absorbed. Then go to another location until you get everything done. It changes color a bit but I think it looks better. When I used it in the rain I could see the water pooling and beading. It might be overkill for some, but I use it in the rain a lot and I firmly believe that you need to take care of your tools and they will take care of you. Hope this helps someone on the fence on this topic. I think you will be satisfied with the value for money.
