    Today I (nearly) finished my new pack. It’s a arc inspired pad. With integrated lumbar pad that can be stuffed from the outside and tensioned to form a arc or more flat..
    It’s about 60 liters and has a roll top that can be fastened as a dry bag or to the side panels to get more compression. If the side straps aren’t used they can clip together and compress the pack.
    A bottom pocket with stash/trash port. Flat bottom pockets and an additional stretch pocket on the side.
    The pockets on the shoulder straps are the same design as atompacks. They fit a water bottle and my large smartphone.
    The sternum strap is fitted underneath and is accessible under the pockets. I just need to make the strap ;).
    It's made from xpac x21rc 150gr/m
    And almost all webbing is 20mm
    5mm eva in the shoulder straps and 5mm low density Eva bonded with 5mm high density for the hipbelt.
    Here are some photos. If you have any questions let me know
    Weight is about 900-1000gr I need a good scale ;)

    Looks a solid build:thumbsup: I'd be tempted to put some drain holes in the side pockets... 1st thing I thought.... ' Buckets' :wink:

    Yep, they could be a bit smaller. When I sewed them to the panel I could :banghead: I forgot to put in the draining holes grr.
    The large pocket is exactly the size of my new myog hexpeak. I'll post that one later today.

    It took about 3 days to sew and a lot of hours thinking drawing patterns in illustrator :)

    Wow well done. I like the huge side pocket and the xpac. Also see you’ve used zig zag stitch in some places which looks a good idea. Having made on of these myself I know just how much work it is!
