Rockhound Collapsible Canvas Rock Buckets
Finally an easy way to carry those special rocks you find!
Finding quality and durable collapsible Canvas Rock Collecting Buckets has been an ongoing and ever changing endeavor. Most Rock Collectors have been through the cycle of trying backpacks, metal buckets, plastic buckets (which break at the most inoppertune times), and finally canvas buckets.
The first canvas buckets we sold were salmon colored 9" diameter with a single steel top ring and 12" deep with a thin strap. These would also carry 2 gallons of water when presoaked. These worked pretty well but soon became unavailable
The next buckets we sold were Olive Drab (OD) green with a stronger carry strap than the salmon buckets. This bucket also was 9" in diameter with a single steel top ring and a depth of 12" also. It had two bottom loops for belt or backpack military style carry. These would also carry 2 gallons of water when presoaked.
Our current buckets are the best ones we have found so far. They are a thick canvas Olive Drab (OD) green also but there are two steel reinforcing rings, one top and one bottom that help it hold its shape much better. Also the strap is a strong strap that runs fully down both sides AND across the bottom for extra support. These work very well for rock collecting, hiking, camping or any outdoors activity. They also hold 2 gallons of water. The handle strap on this one is a bit shorter than our previous OD bucket but it seems to work out just fine. Our supplier has raised prices, but we think these are well worth this cost!
