That must feel great to hit the trails with your own pack! I'm about to start in on one for myself.

I like the dyneema above the mesh on the sides. Keeps it from stretching too far. I've had a bottle 'roll' out of a stretch mesh pocket. I also like how the mesh doesn't reach the ground where it can pick up sticks and muck.

Does the waist webbing go under the dyneema and all the way around or are those just stubs sewn to the dyneema/CCF/3D?

Where did you source the VX?

Nice job.

Thanks. The 1" webbing is sewn to only the end of the waist belt through the dyneema/3D/CCF, all critical attachments are triple reinforced with Tera 40. I got the VX fabric from rockywoods, hardware from Zimmerbuilt.
