Do you have access to a backpack, in order to take hi-resolution pictures? If not, how do you call that backpack? I mean in order to search the web for better images.

I bring you mortal danger and cookies. Not necessarily in that order.

The reason you can't find anything on backpacks like that is because it's not referred to as a backpack, it appears to be referred to as a knapsack, at least according to this page's description of what a knapsack is here. The description matches the image:

http://www.47thfoot.co.uk/mainframe.html

 

This random sewing pattern of a backpack for the 33rd foot might help:

And there's a description of it here:

http://www.33rdfoot.org/knapsacks.html

 

 

However I doubt you'll find any easy to locate reference images, you'll probably have to create your own textures based on that one image, the descriptions and the sewing pattern provided (for scale reference purposes, etc).

 

I'm no artist and don't know how to do this, but if you are or know someone who is an artist, this stuff may help.

Feel free to PM me about almost anything and I'll do my best to answer. :)
