ok, so the vest is out of the way, the bivy materials are lined up, now I need to decide on pack fabrics for my golite ion.
I'm going to feature creep my golite ion to give it better storage capacity and access... my jam2 is too large, and i'm going cheap and attempting to keep the entire project under 60 bucks. should I use silnylon or dyneema for the roll top extention? the plus for silnylon is I have some laying around and it's lighter. the grossgrain most people have been using for projects for buckles and such for the roll top, is it that the really thin straps bought in rolls at stores like joann's fabric? or should I find some through quest when I order my lycra stretch mesh for water bottle pockets?
basic rundown for the pack is an extention collar added, water bottle pockets, and a center mesh pocket for stashing wet tarps and common items.
