1.9 ounce nylon on 02/24/2011 13:35:22 MST Print View


I've had good luck making my packs out of 1.9 once uncoated nylon. How did that older pack you made out of 1.9 ounce nylon hold up over time?

I used coated I purchased from OWF back then. The day pack lasted pretty long till I started to carry multiple radios for my 3 different power slope scale R/C glider and lead balast in them. I was bushwhacking thru chaparral to different slopes that had no trails to fly slope gliders.
