DRIFTA Firewood Bag
Timber collection restrictions, late arrivals or wet weather can all make packing some firewood a godsend. After all fire makes camp, and even the most trying days outdoors are usually turned around by the warm glow of a campfire.
That being said, carrying timber is near top of my 'least favourite items to pack' list. We've had bought bags split, and they're difficult to seal and restock. Plastic tubs are bulky, and we've tried duffle bags with some success, but they're difficult to get the timber in and out of.
The new DRIFTA Firewood Bags are a great solution. The throat of the bag opens completely making it easy to stack them full, access your lumber or even dump the whole bag ready for a long night. The opening then closes completely using velcro, stopping your weighty cargo from rolling out of the bag as you rattle down the off-road.
Made in Australia from 12 ounce Australian canvas these bags are tough, and with the weight and sharp edges of timber they need to be! The closure is VELCRO brand - in fact all of the materials of these bags are of the highest quality.
The bags are first stitched together with a heavy thread and then the raw edges are then finished with a sturdy binding for extra strength and protection.
We've opted for the medium size. This holds about a standard bought bag worth of timber. It's a good weight for lifting and it's a really easy size for packing. Laid flat it measures 500 x 700mm. DRIFTA also make a large size bag which measures in at 650 x 800 mm.
The slim profile of these bags makes them easy to stack and easy to pack, both in your four wheel drive and at home (ready to head camping at a moments notice).
With some dry firewood ready to go there's every chance you'll be relaxing fireside just in time for sunset.
