That doesn't sound like rocket science!
Dog bed (for hammocking),
Tyvek bathtub, 75g
(needed because I don't use a groundsheet)
fleece blanket, 295g
2 layers of (double silvered) Reflectix, 138g
All up, 505g
A lot easier to pack than my last effort of a 3mm CCF bathtub and blanket.
Next stage is a suspended bugnet (from my hammock suspension, or trekking poles), with a shockcord base, prolly 150g 'ish.
that gives me some ideas. I was thinking of some 3mm ccf and a blanket for the warmer months instead of the big 1.2Kg dog bed/sleeping bag I have for the hound, but I already have a big roll of reflectix sitting in the shed
3D printed Line-Lok style guy tensioner and emergency whistle, both in blaze orange
(not my designs, the whistle was downloaded here and the tensioner was adapted for extra rigidity from this original design)
Nozzle for a pump-bag that fits over my JR-gear pad valve and inside my GFs klymit/massdrop pad valve.
What kind of bags do you all use and how durable are they? Currently I use a contractors bag which weighs a hefty 87g...
Exped Shnozzle since 2014, never had any issues with it.
Then maybe I'll look into butchering one of my 50L sil drybags, but I'd have to find a way to waterproof the nozzle... Any other advices with some more MYOG appeal?
Carbon fibre pole-jack with an insert to keep the pole centered and avoid pole wobble.
I bet Zpacks and Rutalocura use bits of caulking gun nozzle aswell
Mine has a spike too though
Quick question, what type of thread do you use for rucksack amendments?
I use gutterman extra strong, the upholstery stuff.
Depends on what type of repair. What are you doing, and is it by hand or machine?
By hand, I am attaching a pocket to a hip belt. Used normal thread and today it just ripped off
If your desperate dental floss!
Enzo has covered it then....if your buying, extra strong is available in most shops and isn't that much. FWIW, fishing line works quite well too at a push.
a classic climbing sack...gunna get bashed in US granite wall...
Really nice! Yosemite? Some myog portaledges would be nice too
I’m going to make some of these too - using some left over waterproof canvas that I made my garden furniture covers from. I’m too old now to climb big walls again though ..
Patrick Dickinson on youtube has just done a portaledge myog build, for tree camping apparently
I like the D4 mini-me - it’s cute, not a burden to carry, easy to copy but probably not too comfy
Finally made a pack. With lots of advise from @theoctagon
A prototype before using more exotic fabrics
Nice! I would like to get that prototype if made of Tyvek. Thanks
all done...the sack came out at cca. 370g as made of burly 1000D/500D cordura with 4 oz. nylon collar..some details
Bad pics sorry for that
That looks great, well done
Very nicely done!
