Well, I finally got my pack done last night, and I am VERY PLEASED. I used the G4 pattern for the main pack body, but I added a very large zippered pocket to the back, one mid size pocket with velcro closure flap to the top of each side, and a custom adjustable waterbottle holder with foam insulation to each bottom side. I had an old fanny pack with a nice belt strap assembly I integrated into this project. I did not use the same method for added structure to my pack (sleeping pad) instead I resused a nice molded piece of sturdy foam that was on the back of my fanny pack. The best part was when I showed it to my friends they asked what brand it was and how much it cost........that is the reason we build our own gear....pride.
pics will soon follow//
