    Companion forum thread to: MYOG: Seam Construction and Taping of New Dimension-Polyant Fabrics

    This article presents the results of some cursory material construction tests using the newer Dimension-Polyant (DP) fabrics from the LS, VX, and WX families, as well as seam-taping using DP-supplied seam tapes. The context here is MYOG/DIY backpack construction.

    Thanks, Roger. There are times and places for Xpack. But, probably not on packs that need to be water resistant and durable. The reinforcement threads are subject to wear as you illustrate so well. The tapes need to be thick enough and flexible enough to cover seams, and threads.

    Well, I treat my X-Pac pack as being waterproof – works OK so far.

    Cheers

    I’m guessing you are going to put an LS07 /LS21 pack through the wringer for us Roger? Your experience will be more valuable for us Aussies than most

    Tempting. I have enquired about material.

    Cheers
