This is part 4 of a four part article series on turning 5 yards of spinnaker into a SuperUltraLight (SUL) tarp, pack, and stuff sack. Part 1 showed how the fabric was divided efficiently into the various pieces for each project. In Part 2, I showed how to make a simple stuff sack weighing 0.2 ounces and sized to fit the 6.3 ounce tarp made in Part 3. This article describes the construction of a 1700 cubic inch SUL pack. My design has a few features like a side panel water bottle pocket and shock corded backpanel for compression and gear storage. Nevertheless, keeping the weight off was the primary design goal, and the final 3.1 ounce weight is the result!
