MYOG Backpack Drawings on 08/17/2008 09:13:22 MDT Print View

Hi,
I am searching for some MYOG backpack drawings. I searched various forums including this one, but could not find except http://www.backpacking.net/makegear.html . Does anybody has more designs? I am mainly looking for drawings with the dimensions.

most UL packs fit into a 6.5x12.5x35 type size frame. Of course each is slightly diff.

I think the LAB pack found on the site you mentioned is worth a try if you want plans in your hand.

I don't use any plans and just go off the dimensions above. I add things like mesh pockets and compression lace loops.

If you are making a pack for the first time the G4 or LAB directions can help a lot, but make it to the size you want.

Plans for two packs at GossamerGear

Actual pattern and kit for one of those (the G4) available at Quest Outfitters

Thanks for the pointers. Are there any additional pictures of LAB packs available?

How can I get the shape similar to the one mentioned at http://www.ospreypacks.com/Packs/AtmosSeriesMens/ . I had seen this pack & fits perfectly. The frame has special shape. Does the only frame give the shape to this particular pack or the contours of the bag plays the role too?
Say if I have to give similar shape to G4 or LAB pack, what do I need to modify?

I tried to cut some cotton cloth pieces as shown for osprey pack. How to sew the curves? When I tried to join them, some folds were appearing.

Thanks & Regards
