X-Pac Civilian Backpack
« on: March 11, 2016, 12:15:42 AM »
Good morning / evening,
here my last backpack, nothing of special but i had some x-pac from long time and i wanted to try it on a backpack, it is soooo light. Same design of my civilian backpacks, hope you like it. i'm always open to suggestion.









thanks

I really like what you did with the paracord in the shoulder straps, but that paracord pals matrix doesn't really work (visually), at least not for me :) frankly, the look that it gives for the pack is perhaps too DIY


I like how you did that hydration sleeve, i'm going to borrow that idea when i have time build packs again :)

Why not use 1/4" or 3/8" webbing instead of paracord? Strapworks has 3/8 and google shows at least a couple of options for 1/4.

Very nice.
How does this compare in weight to a a pack made of 500d (just an estimate), also how rigid is the fabric, as compared to 500d.
Thanks, Scott

thanks guys for the feedbacks.  I find that X-pac stuff seem more like something DIY anhd  i agree with you that pals made paracord don't stay well on this backpack but i found them cool in the black and red one i did before.

About the 3/8 webbing unfortunately i don't have it and what i like about paracord is that i can find every color easily.

About the weight this one is around 300g and another one a bit more complicated in 1000d was around 750, i have one in 500 (the red and black one) but actually i never weighed it, i'll update!

thanks

Scott,
PM me your address and I'll send you some larger size scraps that I have laying around. This fabric is pretty awesome.
