I have to say that it's not as easy as making one of these and at times, it can be quite intimidating. There were a few times that I had to redo a lot of the stitching and more times that I had to just walk away from it.
However, after everything, I was actually quite pleased with the bag. The beauty about making your gear is that you can design to your own personal specifications and features.
Here are some of the features of the bag:
- Cinch Buckle and Velcro Closure (like dry-bags)
- Side Pockets
- Front Shove-It Pocket
- Inner Pocket for CCF Pad
- Made with 1.9 Ripstop and Nylon Cordura
- Final Weight - 9 oz.
- Capacity - not really sure...maybe 40L?
Things to add:
- Sternum Strap
- Hip Belt
All in all, this project took about 10 hours to complete...due to human errors and frustrations :). Now for the good part...some photos!

|Yours Truly...happy with the results!|
I plan on making another pack now that I made one with spare fabrics. Anyone got any good deals on Dynema X fabric? Anyway, I hope you guys like it...leave a comment or let me know if you have any questions.
Thanks for looking!
