I know that sewing a patch onto a pack isn't UL, but I've always liked the latin phrase solvitas perambulum, which translated loosely means "solve it while walking". Theoretically at least, it was a Roman phrase meant to convey the idea that exercise can stimulate good or clear thought. Regardless of how historically accurate the phrase may be, I've long considered it a personal creed or aspiration. So I had a small patch (3/4 inch x 5 inches) made which looks like this:
However, the smallest quantity I could have made was 50, so I have 49 or so left if anyone wants one. If you're interested, paypal (as a gift) me (mcdcrook@gmail) a few bucks and I'll send you one. Suggested donation is between $3-$10, whatever you feel it's worth to you. If you don't do paypal, you can mail me a check. PM me for my address.

Wicked cool! Can I iron it on? I'm not handy with a needle.Sep 17, 2013 at 12:21 pm #2025493
Sorry, these are sew-on only. It sounds a bit ridiculous, but I opted for no glue on the backs to save weight.Sep 17, 2013 at 2:36 pm #2025526

Crook, definitely not ridiculous. I cut the tags off my crazy old-school fleeces that weigh twice as much as an R1. Ultralight…?Sep 18, 2013 at 8:40 am #2025775

Like those a lot, but hard pressed to think of anything to sew it onto. A decal, however…Sep 26, 2013 at 6:08 am #2028414
