Do you have a build thread on the pack? It looks great, but I need more info (volume, material, features).
KevinNov 30, 2012 at 3:40 am #1932096
@kevin and Yes,
Here is the build thread for the MYOG pack.
Please note that the build thread for this pack starts from this point which is the second post on the page that the link brings you to. Clicking on show all makes it appear approximately 2/3rds down the page.
The pack is constructed of green PU coated nylon rip stop, grey and green "stretchy" polyester/nylon material and 3/4" webbing which could be nylon or polyester. It's been a long time. ;-)
The torso size is non-adjustable. I carried this pack with a full (wet weight) load of approximately 23 – 25 pounds using the burrito packing method on the AT in 2010.

Re: pack volume.
The measurements of the pack are;
Torso length 21" (measured from shoulder strap attachment point to center of hip belt webbing).
Pack is 21.5" x 12" x 5" (measured from shoulder strap attachment point to bottom).
Upper pockets are 5.5" x 5" x 2" times 2 pockets.
Water bottle pockets are 3" x 8.5" x 5" times 2 pockets.
Front pocket is 12" x 14" x 2".
Total pack volume works out to 1936 ci including pockets.
Extension collar will (approximately) add another 420 ci for a total of 2356 ci.
All measurements in italics are averages of pocket depth. H x W x depth.
The extension collar when used adds volume for extra food etc. When not needed for the extra volume it can still be cinched closed to aid in keeping pack contents drier.
Note: This pack was used with a trash compactor bag to keep contents dry.
Thanks for all the interest in my pack. ;-)

I will buy the pack if Kevin passes.Nov 30, 2012 at 5:24 am #1932107
Yes and Kevin have both expressed interest in the pack.
The order is;
"Yes" is first, Kevin is second and Bubba is third.
Yes responded by PM early in the wee morning hours and Kevin posted and PM'd about an hour later. Both were asking for more information which I have posted above.
Bubba is the only one who has offered to buy the pack outright.
If Yes and Kevin pass the pack goes to Bubba.
Note: I will break out the scale and get a more accurate weight of the pack + sternum strap + hip belt and pockets.Nov 30, 2012 at 6:03 am #1932111
The actual pack weight with sternum strap and hip belt with pockets is
1.) Omitted from the pack information that the hip belt used to only be comprised of webbing. After my 2010 hike I modified the pack to include hip belt pads on both sides in addition to the webbing and hip belt pockets.
2.) Also the hip belt pockets volume was omitted from my earlier post. They add a little more volume overall. The pockets measure 1.75" x 3" x 9" times two pockets.
Hip belt pocket volume total is 94.5 ci for the two pockets in addition to the rest of the pack's volume.
All totaled the volume works out to approximately 2450.5 ci with a main bag volume of 1290 ci as posted earlier.
The hip belt pads measure 3" x 10" x 3/8". W x L x thickness. The shoulder strap padding is the same thickness. All the padding is closed cell foam.

I thought I might be second, which is probably for the best. I'm one of those guys who is all leg. If Yes falls through, i might try to make it work anyway; great looking pack!

Like the title of this post says…
Thank you to all who made purchases. I'm well on my way to putting a new Enlightened Equipment down quilt underneath my Christmas tree. ;-)

Tarp is sold to David. Thanks
Back in August of 2010 I made this flat tarp out of Polymax 42 "spinnaker" fabric.
This tarp is 8' x 10' and flat in configuration.
… the fabric weight is DPL42 Polymax 42 (0.75 oz.)
What is unclear is whether or not that weight is per square meter, square yard or sailmaker's yard (28.5" x 36").
The lack of a catenary curve doesn't make the A frame pitch the tightest of pitches but I gave that up for the flat configuration and multiple pitch options.
This tarp has remained unused since it was built. It was only pitched in my back yard as pictured above.
I've been tempted to modify this flat tarp into a shaped tarp by adding a catenary curve and shaping it to look more like the one I sold a while back.
The difference will be that I will not be adding the beaks to the front or rear.
You can stop me from doing this if you'd like by purchasing this tarp from me.
At present it is for sale at a price of $55.00 shipped. This price includes the silnylon stuff sack that it is stored in presently.
The tarp is seam sealed. During the seam sealing process one of the tieouts stitching was stressed to the point that the needle holes could have light show through them. I applied "extra seam sealer to those needle holes.
As I understand it this material is PU coated on one side and silicone coated on the other. It is referred to as Polyester Spinnaker. The tarp is constructed so that the PU side is down and the silicone coated side is up.
If you are interested post here or PM me. It has some lines attached as it sits in its stuff sack. I'll post a weight of the tarp with those lines and in the stuff sack later this evening.
Here is the link to the construction thread on this flat tarp.
Thanks for looking.
NewtonDec 3, 2012 at 2:10 pm #1932799
The weight of the flat tarp is 14.60 ounces with lines attached, seam sealed and in the stuff sack.
BTW the packed size in the stuff sack is 9.5" x 6.5" x 6" although it will compress further.

John- I'll take it if it's not already spoken for.
DavidDec 3, 2012 at 3:40 pm #1932825
Spelt! was the first to respond with a question about the tarp's weight. Since he was the first to show interest I'd like to give "Spelt!" first chance at it.
If I get no further response from "Spelt!" then the tarp will go to David who is next in line.
If this is agreeable to all I'll wait a sufficient amount of time for a response from Spelt!. If he shows no further interest I'll move on to David who is next in line.
From Spelt! via PM.
I release my dibs to David. David, enjoy!"
So the tarp is sold to David. Thanks

When I check your Delivery Confirmation Receipt / Tracking numbers it still shows your packages undelivered and the latest info on all three is that they left the USPS sort facility in New Orleans, LA. Jeremy's left on the 4th and David's left on the 5th.
Please post or PM me to let me know if you have received your packages.
Thanks Scott and David for answering my PM so promptly.
Scott's package is shown as delivered. ;-)
Jeremy and David's packages are still circling planet earth somewhere. ;-(
The USPS Priority Mail Service is not worth the money!!!!!!!!!!!!!
2 out of 4 packages have made it to their destinations and the two that are still in transit are more than three days overdue. ;-P
