(Not sure why bpl's site is turning my images, and do not have a ready fix for the problem!)

I am really excited about making this not super lightweight day hiker out of Cuben material purchased from this site!
Total weight is 13.0, which isn't breaking any records, but it is 2.5 non bias Cuben, and I image quite sturdy.

Interior pocket for misc. sundries and a larger pocket for hosting a foam pad.

400d interior reinforcement and color pop out of pack cloth.

I really like the look of this pack, especially for Urban use. Something super durable and waterproof like that would make a great pack for bike commuting! The closure looks to be very waterproof.

Great job

Sometimes I get non-righted images. I can avoid it if I get into a photoviewer, rotate the image and re-save under a new name.

Nice pack! That is also a super cool looking dog by the way.

Yeah! The dog is Arrow. He is pretty cool.

The horizontal strap is for compression, and also to attach a wet rain jacket or layer without losing use of the main access point.
