Dear UL hikers,
It’s my first post here on BPL and i would like to present my new Silnylon backpack:
MYOG PACK 01
I wanted to design a backpack, with the
maximum possible comfort and with minimal weight.
– The entire shell fabric:
..Silnylon 45g/m²( 1.3 oz./sq. yd.)
– Shoulder straps:
..3D mesh 6mm 780g/m² (23 oz./sq. yd.)
– Side pockets:
..meshfabric..106g/m² (3,1 oz./sq. yd.)
– Shoulder straps / hip belt: webbing
– All other straps: light webbing
– Cords: Dyneema coated 1,5mm
+ Several buckles, cordlocs & elastics
Backpack facts in detail:
27cm(10,6in.) / 70cm(27,6in.) / 15,5cm(6,1in.)
10 parts of a z-lite are the structural system
A hipbelt and chest strap because i am often alpine on tour,and in this case i don’t want to miss the stability and a tight-fitting backpack
Two outer side pockets, which are accessible on tour
(I don`t need a big one) This side pockets are exposed, to get access while the pack is packed
The bottom is rounded, to create space for the sleepingbag and to slide better on obstacles while climbing through rocks
An output for a drinking system
The shoulder straps are S-shaped and attached with 15 ° angle down in relation to the horizontal line at the backpack
Compression, and the possibility to fix snowshoes outside
All major seams are carried out as double lap seams and SilNet sealed
A shoulder strap pocket for my Gerber LST because I’m always afraid to lose this little thing
And, of course a toploader
For further features take a look at the pictures:
For bigger pictures:
Backpack setup (by fair means):
Base weight :
H²O 1L; spirits 180g; Food 1,2kg 2,4kg..(~5,3lbs.)
p.s. The partial irregular seams are also due to the sewing machine which has got one’s own character by varying the needle tension while sewing. It's just an old lady.Nov 30, 2008 at 5:07 am #1461163

That's a nice pack! Well thought and superbly executed.Nov 30, 2008 at 6:58 am #1461170
Fantastic looking pack. Its very similar to what I want to end up with after finishing modifications on my GoLite Ion but you're probably lighter and have a little more volume. Can't wait to see your next project!Nov 30, 2008 at 9:30 am #1461188

Well done and where do I buy one of these? Or do I have to make my own? Looks great is that a z rest inside? And where did you get the raw materials? In europe or …
I especially like the last photo with the light from behind.Dec 1, 2008 at 12:27 am #1461335
Thank you all for the great compliments!
Yes , it is a z-lite inside the pack and
i bought the entire raw material in berlin.
If there is interest i could post also a
myog bivy made off Tyvek.
All the best

please do.Dec 1, 2008 at 3:23 pm #1461448
That's a great looking pack! I've been playing around with making a pack, but nothing that well built yet.
A few questions:
1) Any chance you'll post a guide with dimensions of the fabric pieces used?
2) On the shoulder strap edges I noticed the edging material. Is this gross grain ribbon? How do you sew it on? I've been getting gross grain ribbon and folding it then ironing it, which is a major pain. How do you do it?Dec 1, 2008 at 3:31 pm #1461453

Good glory that's gorgeous! Exactly the kind of pack I wish somebody would put on the market.Dec 1, 2008 at 3:50 pm #1461458

Very nice, I would be interested in seeing your tyvek bivy and hearing about your experience with performance of tyvek in this application. Having worked on this idea myself I would be very interested in seeing your work. I'm sure, if your pack is an indication, your MYOG tyvek bivy will make my efforts seem very basic. Again – great job.Dec 3, 2008 at 9:12 am #1461851

Very, very nice. How long did it take for you to design and then sew the pack?Dec 4, 2008 at 4:40 am #1462026
„Any chance you'll post a guide with
dimensions of the fabric pieces used?”
I will think about it.
That’s right the edging material of the shoulder
straps is something similar to grosgrain ribbon,
mayby a little bit stronger. At first I fixed the
ribbon with double-sided tape on the edge, then I
sewed the the straps by using a magnetic seam guide.
The design and the sewing took me about a week.
And now, after all the major problems are fixed,
the Backback would be well done in one day, perhaps.

Tried the link, for me it seems to lead to a blank page.Dec 8, 2009 at 6:05 am #1551459
Oh man, that's a really old Thread and also a really old pack!
Since this pack I've made maybe 25 new ones and changed a lot of the details
The packs are still made from SilNylon, but I have strengthened the claimed areas with stronger materials.
The weight of the packs ist now around 10 oz.
And I'm very sorry I can't publish the patterns.
