Arc’Teryx Veilance Backpack
I’ve decided to start gathering photos of texture and color for inspiration for future packs. This set was captured at Tramp Harbor on a beautiful saturday morning.
Love it!! It’d definitely be an interesting collection to look through…
Fast Pack Friday: Custom Stuff Pack
I’ve had my own design for a GORUCK Brick Bag/Stuff Sack style pack for a while now. Last week I finally got around to ordering some parts and I cracked the whole thing out last night (not without some blood and bruises!). I’m pretty pleased with the results, there are of course a bunch of things I would change, but it works.
The reason I can justify it (to myself!) being under Fast Pack Friday is that Transporter Tail from my Fast Pack EDC, the Coyote Khaki colour of these have just been restocked, you won’t regret picking one of these up. I’ve been playing around with the Tail as an individual unit recently, including here where it is wrapped around the Stuff Pack. I love how the clips can be used to wrap around nearly anything to add extra PALS webbing, the stuff pocket behind is great for keeping a bandana or other thin material items too. Also featured on here is my TAD S2 pouch in OD Green, with my LensLight Mini Ti TAD Edition (mines actually an older edition).
My Stuff Pack includes a strip of PALS webbing of its own which I used to secure the bottom straps of the Transporter Tail, hold a pair of trauma shears and attach a PatchPal (stand by for a review of this amazing product in the near future!). The Stuff Pack could definitely use a bit more capacity in the depth but this thin profile does actually encourages lighter packing, so maybe not. It’s a similar width to a number of my pouches, so it works nicely for internal configuration. The clip closure (which follows a traditional stuff sack fold-and-clip technique) was chosen as it works well for attaching to other packs and doubles as a handle.
I’ve got another couple of ideas for custom packs which I’ll share when they’re done. For now, do let me know what you think of the Stuff Pack?
Love it when peeps build their own stuff!! Nice one dude!!
