Finally, I was able to find the time to make my own Granite Gear lid. The idea and pictures came from here.
The Parts List Includes:
uretek zipper, zipper pulls
1/8" drawcord, primoloc toggle
3/4" sternum strap giude
1" sew-on hook/loop
I used some 3/4" webbing in ice-axe configuration to loop onto the load lifter ladder locs.
I also used the sternum strap clip to attach the lid to the upper lashing strap.
I made two different designs. One had the grossgrain and drawcord at the webbing points to act as additional lashing. The other design was without the drawcord. Both models included the mitten clip inside, to hold onto keys.
Why 200D fabric? I figure, with keys and other things that normally go in these pockets, I needed something heavier than 1.1 silnylon.
They weigh roughly 2.0 oz. For the same price it would have cost to purchase one lid from GG, I was able to make 2 lids and a few other things (see below).
