A good bucket-compatible backpack is surprisingly hard to find. The “bucketpack” pictured above is from HuntGear.net, but does not seem to be available for purchase.
Why Bucket Backpacks are a Thing
People look for bucket backpacks when they want to carry materials such as rocks, soil, sharp objects – or even liquids. The inner bucket layer can get scratched, dirty and nasty while the backpack itself remains in good condition.
Bucket Backpack for Gold Hunters
Since bucket backpacks are so hard to find online, one creative gold prospector made her own by attaching backpack straps to a fisherman’s bucket caddy. She calls her invention “Gold Tote” because she literally uses it in her quest for gold.
This is my favorite bucket backpack because it’s zero budget and would probably irritate the teachers. If I were to redo high school all over again, this is how I’d be carting my notebooks around.
Buying Bucket Backpacks
I wasn’t able to find any bucket backpacks available for purchase online. If you know where to buy one, please share in the comments.
And if you’re a bucket innovator, this could be an opportunity for you to develop and sell a bucket based backpack.
