    The haversack is another 18th century bag also known as a script, that was mostly used for carrying trail foods or for scavenging. I don't use mine anymore, preferring to use my snapsack instead. Someone else in the family will no doubt find a use for it.

    No Tom, using a large pack basket just to carry trail foods is not practicle. If you mean carry all your gear in a pack basket including your trail food I guess that would be a personal choice. I have used a pack basket & did not find it comfortable or practical.
    Trail foods are sometimes eaten whilst on the move, having to stop & take your pack off to get at the food is an inconvenience.

    I use an Alice pack, with a separate bag for food, if necessary I can drop the Alice pack and escape but still retain all my food.
