I've looked with interest, and sometimes with envy, the photos of various of our member's gear for muzzleloading. So, I took a few not-so-artsy photos of my main possibles bag and associated tools.
This is the bag that came with my first, good muzzle loader rifle:

The leather is very thick. This is a heavy duty bag. I have some smaller, lighter bags, but this is my main one.
It carries my utility knife and tomahawk. Also, in this shot is my main horn:

The elk horn is one I turned into a 60 gr powder measure.

Love the knife and axe carry on that. It still looks light and efficient.

I no longer carry the tomahawk that way. It makes the bag much to heavy!
The leather on the bag makes the bag itself quite a load. It is the perfect bag for a longhunter - much more substantial and sturdy than lighter bags.

Nice array of tack!† Haven't seen a bag that thick before, but you've stimulated my thinking cap. It looks like a very high grade of leather to boot.

Thanks!

It is a very high quality and weight of leather. As a rank novice at the time, I had no idea how good and costly a bag like that would be. It was one of those times when good fortune smiled on me.
In the bag were powder measures, nipple tools, cap dispensers, a small primer horn, etc. I was ready to go!

Man have you opened a can of worms my friend. You did it so here we go folks with a few of my wares. Remember I've been in the sport (word used for lack of a better one at this moment) for many years. When associated with the American Mountain Men and the North American Frontiersmen you need to show pictures of original equipage you copied for your items used in their encampments.

I have some catching up to do! Very Happy
Of course I only started when I was about 64.
I didn't show my breechclout. Somewhere back in time on this site I described my breechclout wardrobe failure.†

You wouldn't believe how much stuff I have collected in over 50 years. No going through this stuff making several piles; keepers, sale items and well used give to my grandson for starters. What's show is nothing that has been collected, some traded for or purchased then found wasn't what I thought it was or not the quality looking for.

I am thinking I'll put together a few lists for our members to get an idea of what some groups expect of their members in the way of period correctness. Fun to look at but a pain to document there sources - museums, collections, etc. - shooting pouches, contents, and so on.
