New Roll-Top!

October 31, 2012

fresh outta my bedroom…


– It’s pretty massive at about 19 x 13 x 8 (rolled down) but four compression straps keep the excess down

– Expandable front pocket that can fit a cereal box

– Removable cinch cord on the front to hold squishy stuff

– removable and adjustable shoulder straps

– removable sternum strap and waist belt

– metal hook closure

– 18 oz VCP interior for superduty water protection

– old sailcloth and 1000D cordura exterior

– Lots o’ attachment points for hauling weird loads with bungee cords

– super thick (0.5″) contoured shoulder straps made with EVA foam

– Removable and adjustable internal coroplast frame sheet (I added some aluminum stays to keep the shape that I bent to my back)

-Removable 2″ reflective strip on the bottom

Here are some pictures of construction and features:

doing some evil things to my machine to get her to sew through half-inch closed cell plus webbing

Straps. That seabelt webbing at the top lets you adjust where the bag sits on your bag and you can kinda see the internal frame sheet and it’s curvature. oh, and a sternum strap goes with these now…

oh snap(s)! I really like snaps, I think I’ll be using a lot more of them now that my dad gave an old snap kit

Removable reflective tape and base compression straps

Cinch cord is super handy for keeping wet stuff out your main compartment

semi-secret back pocket, main pocket and front pocket

oh yeah and there’s a hidden zipper pocket under the flap for the front pocket, for the small stuff (stitching looks like shit, sewing with sailcloth is something I’m only beginning to master). The top of this pocket is bound with old inner tube, I’m trying it out here before moving it to other bags, but it looks and feels really solid.
