Here I will show how to make and wear the Roycroft pack frame made famous in the bush-crafting community by the late Mors Kochanski. All you need is 3 sticks and a little bit of cordage to construct a sturdy frame to lash your gear to so you can comfortably, safely, and securely carry on to your next destination - into or out of the woods.

For this video I will show how to measure, notch and lash the frame together, in second video I show how to pack, and tie on the pack, and different strap-lashing variations, that I find useful.

    You will need:
  • 2 Long Sticks (length from your finger tips to your arm-pit lenght)
  • 1 Medium Stick (length from your finger tips to your mid bicept or the width of the small of your back)
  • 1 Short Stick approximately 8 - 12" (optional)
  • Cutting tool(s)
  • Cordage (the more the better)
  • Blanket, tarp, or netting
