Fifth Season Eira Sack


Eira is the Welsh for snow.  It's one of the easier Welsh words to pronounce: E-rah.  Say it with a nice lilt and you have it nailed.  It doesn't snow much in Wales, but when the Welsh came to Poultney in the 1800's it dumped on them.  Most of the slate quarries were staffed by Welsh immigrants.  Quarries predominantly produced the Ipad of the day, slate writing tablets.  

The Fifth Season Eira Sack is a wool topped Vortex sack.  It's made for a Wald 139 full or half basket.  We recommend the full, just cause this bag can fit so much stuff.  More support is better!   

The wool is from Johnson Woolen Mills in northern Vermont.  It's thick.  They use it to make blankets.  The canvas is from Jersey.  The brass hardware is US made marine grade solid brass.  The webbing is beefy hemp.  No plastic fabrics, no gimmicks, just a solid, long lasting bag made to carry a ton of stuff.

Wool is naturally water resistant, but this isn't a bag for a monsoon.  It's a bag for light rain, snow, sleet, lots of mud.  

Clean a wool and canvas bag with a damp soap free sponge.  If you get it really muddy and wanna clean it, just hose it off or shower with it, but again, no soap!  Just water.  Let it dry flat.  When the wax starts to wear thin, you can rewax it!  

Made in Vermont in a one woman workshop by a gal named Ariel who rides a Tanglefoot (or two, but rarely at once).

There are too many possible variants to list by color.  We're just attaching tags with numbers so you know exactly what bag you are getting.  Order by number!
