About Me I grew up in VA exploring and camping the woods around my house. As a teen in the 80's I learned how to backpack by reading books. Back then my pack weight was a respectable 27 lbs and I hit the woods every chance I got. Once adult life took over it was rare to take an overnighter. I faced several challenges during my middle age life and turned to the outdoors to restore me. As my knowledge and skills advanced, my base weight dropped to below 5 lbs. With this came a freedom that I had never experienced before.

Agree 100% with Javan. Backwoodsdaydreamer is a good source of inexpensive fabric. For a first project you will get a great bag for next to nothing. JRB uses 1.1 uncoated ripstop for their quilts a...

re: M50 TopBag Finished
