My Locale Minneapolis
About Me Grew up family car/boat camping and then Boundary Waters camping starting in my teen years and into upper 20s. Took up backpacking around 30 and in 2006 started having knee problems which quickly put me down the road to lightweight backpacking... the transition is still ongoing and obsessively addictive even though I have pretty much resolved my knee problems.

RE: Tyvek Backpack
Roger, would that 3M tape work well for sealing Tyvek seams as well? Would it be strong enough to relieve stress on a sewn seam in the Tyvek? Thanks!

RE: Tyvek Backpack
Ralph, Are all of your seams sewn or are some of them taped? How did you seal the seams that are sewn? It seams that sewing and Tyvek would not work real well together as it would make a perfo...

I also have a Gramicci merino wool t-shirt and the weave is definitely not as tight is it is on the Icebreaker shirts... but it still seems to be holding up pretty decent.
