Perfect for wild plants, berries, mushrooms and more, the Collapsible Foragers Bag snaps onto a belt or backpack strap and unfolds to carry up to a liter of foraged food. Here's how to use it: 

Snap your Foragers Bag onto your belt

Unsnap two of the brass snaps on the back of your bag, and slip the square belt patch over a belt, cross body strap, or pack strap. Realign the snaps and press firmly to attach.

Unfold your Foragers Bag and start Gathering

Once you find the food, tinder, or other items you're looking for, pop open the snaps on the front of your bag and unfold the canvas. Spread the top of the bag wide with your hands to make it easier to add items to your bag.

Opening the Collapsible Foragers Bag

Your Foragers Bag can be used for foraging plants, mushrooms, berries, and other forest food. Made from a food-grade waxed canvas, your bag is dirt and stain resistant.

Your Foragers Bag isn't limited to food. It's also great for collecting tinder for a fire, carrying a liter-sized water bottle (like a Nalgene), carrying dog treats or waste bags, or collecting other items while on a walk.

Your bag can be lightly closed using the flip cover on the back of the bag. Simply flip the cover over the top of the bag to close it.

If foraging for a lot of food food at once, you can line your bag with a thin liner (produce bags or dog bags work well), remove and tie off bags once they're full, and replace with another liner to continue foraging.

 When full, your bag can also be easily removed from your belt by unsnapping two or more snaps. Removing a full bag makes empying the bag much easier.

 To clean your bag, turn it inside out and brush lightly by hand or with a soft bristle brush, wipe with a damp cloth, or run it under water.
