When will the other articles come out? I can’t wait. By the way I like the compression system on the pack. Nice design.Sep 20, 2006 at 5:29 am #1363334
Great article and I admire your organization!
Can you add to it some internet suppliers of the spinnaker fabric that you use?

This is where I am headed, making my own gear or using commercially available gear to suit my particular needs. I already asked my partner to teach me how to use her sewing machine … my idea is to use a GG Whisper and a UL 45 REI pack harness to create a true UL pack out of both. With the Whisper as a removable bag portion and something like the pack in this article, using the GG pack as the base for the bag part. I learn so much here it is awesome. And gets rid of the addiction I have to buying whatever looks right or good, because of lack of time to develop the kinds of intstructions, templates, and concepts already done by people here.Sep 5, 2007 at 1:55 am #1401093
What kind (references) of Gutterman thread is necessary for sewing the tarp ?Mar 3, 2010 at 5:28 pm #1581383

Excellent article. I'm hoping you will cover how to tune your sewing machine for sewing lightweight fabric. I have experience with medium weight fabric, but I tried once to sew lightweight fabric and the sewing seam just did not look good. Maybe you could share some insight here in future articles.

1. I wish you had the actual "lines" in a pattern in a file for us to download and use.
2. The use of material is highly interesting. What CAD program is that? It allows you to drag-and-drop the shapes?
These are the two reasons I am reluctant to spend for expensive materials: not having a great pattern and waste of the expensive materials.
I feel I can work on skills, if necessary.
The article here: http://www.backpackinglight.com/cgi-bin/backpackinglight/myog-laminating-silicone-impregnated-fabrics?m=004776-_3HjXS36Y6MnOohH-JZg is very helpful in that regard.
