This invention relates to a pack basket, and more
particularly to an aluminum pack backet.
A primary object of the invention is the provision of
an improved aluminum pack basket to take the place
of the conventionally known basket weave types which
will be materially lighter in construction, which will
be waterproof, insect proof, and vermin proof, which
lar loops 21 are also provided rearwardly of the basket
and a pair of straps 22 are passed through all the loops,
with the end of the strap 23 being reverted on the front
of the basket and passed through a buckle 24. This
buckle serves to permit adjustment of a shoulder loop
25 comprising an integral part of each strap, the shoulder
loop being formed by securing the other end to an
intermediate portion of the strap as by means of a stud
or rivet 26.
‘Obviously, by extending or reducing the length of
the end 23 the effective length of the straps may be
varied so as to provide maximum comfort for the wearer.
A pair of load supporting bars 36} are slidably mounted

overturning of a boat, which may serve as a pail for
the carrying of water for cooking, for extinguishing
of the basket, and are each comprised of a pair of wires
which pass on opposite sides of an intermediate stud
32 which extends through the basket adjacent the front
es, or other purposes, and which is provided with ex
straps 29. The rods are extensible to the dotted line

basket taken substantially along the line 3—3 of FIG. 1

bars 30 and the handle 35 are either extended or re
35 tracted. When the handle and load bars are in retracted
position the aluminum lid 16 may be placed over the
pack basket as a cover, and, when the basket is empty,
due to its air tight construction, it may serve as a bucket
for the carrying of water, or alternatively, as a life pre
40 server in the event that the boat in which it may be
being carried is overturned.
IFrom the foregoing it will now be seen that there is

the direction indicated by the arrows; and
