Ruck sack Jack.

Loved this guy's rucksack.

Liked how it was gaping open just a bit. Mine does that all the while, and you don't realise until it has worked itself open fully and all your stuff falls out.

It's a real problem. Think I'll call it "back sack crack syndrome". 

Or is that name taken ?

Someone should write a history of the rise of the rucksack from humble camping essential to universal carry all.


  1. Ruck Sack Jack. Sounds like a Victorian villain... did he have a curly moustache?

  2. I think rucksacks and backpacks should be banned.

    I've lost track of the number of times I've been whacked by one ... actually I guess its the oblivious wearers not the packs themselves that are to blame!!

  3. Hmmm, Thinking that this is the start of an idea for a series. Victorian Villain transported to modern London. Dodging and wheeling and getting to grips with things like Topshop and the internet.

    And Sue. If I have ever bashed into you with mine I apologise on behalf of all of us. And I agree, they are liabilities in stately homes and the like.
