If not then it's been about a year and it couldn't have been a very good one to begin with otherwise I'd remember that I had posted it, but I digress.
I couldn't decide whether to post this in the MYOG or Multiple Use, but as it deals with modification of gear I thought why not put it in MYOG (and honestly I like the threads in MYOG anyways)...
So I had this cheapo Nylon Anarok that I was planning on bringing as a wind shirt and I was just looking at it thinking of what I could do with it and I closed the bottom of it completely and thought why not make it into a pack. I got really excited by this until I realized it would be completely useless as anything else if it were a pack, so I went back to the drawing board and was thinking of another essential that I could use as a pack.
So I plan on getting a Montbell Breeze at 6.3 oz, and I was looking for a comparably light backpack to start a sub 10 lbs pack weight. I've been lurking the forums here for well over a year and I've garnered so much inspiration here. I'm thinking if I could find a folding pattern and install back straps in the right place and some form of compression straps, I could eliminate the need for a backpack all together. This pack could then be as big or as small as needed, it would be waterproof and it would add no weight to my existing load (well besides straps and what not)...
Are there any arguments against my logic here, anyone ever try this?
