Dan does incredible craftsmanship. Not only that but, I came to him with various concerns and he thought of agile and logical solutions. Customer service was impeccable with quick response times and regular check ins during an extended COVID lead time. This is easily one of the best packs I have worn. I get the flexibility of going frameless and option of extra support if it is required. My only regret is, I didn't order one sooner.

I could not place Dan's craftsmanship or communication any higher. From the very first email to gather info, all the way through to the amazingly fast postage to get my packs to my door, Dan was there to assist and give his honest opinion of which I really appreciated. Dan is a very knowledgeable guy when it comes to the practicality of the packs and won't steer you in the wrong direction as far as fabric choice, in fact he only works with what he knows works. The packs themselves exhibit some of the highest quality stitching I've seen in a handmade product and I am more than happy with the final result. If you are after a hand crafted, field tested ultralight bag, look no further than this amazing Aussie company. Thank you Dan! Now to get them out on the trail and wave the Wilderness Threadworks flag proudly!!!
