Pack Basket History

The Adirondack Pack Basket is one of the region’s oldest surviving traditions, and is often considered the precursor to today’s backpack. They are traditionally made from hand-pounded Black Ash woodsplints, shaped with a slightly curved “belly” to increase the pack’s carrying capacity for hunting, fishing, trapping and other pursuits in the Adirondack wilderness. Leather or woven webbing harness, with adjustable shoulder straps and a handhold allow the basket to be worn comfortably.
