Re: This One's For Ronin!

Nice mod Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Thanks. I sold my Duplex belt to a guy I recently built a pack for. He gave me an old MountainSmith pack to tear apart and rebuild in multicam! So, it's basically the same with a few added features including a new lumbar pad with more padding and better b...

This One's For Ronin!

HPG belt modified to fit the Duplex frame retaining the Velcro closures for removing the two different levels of pads (or substituting). I also added an extra layer of closed cell foam to the lumbar pad. This shortened the length of the belt a little but it still works fine. http://i1366.photobucket...

Re: Your favorite light and ultra light gear?

Enlightened Equipment's Revelation top quilt! I bought the 20 degree long/wide version with the 20d outer shell and 800fill (it might have been 850?) water repellent down and it's awesome! Weighs about 1 1/2 lbs. and kept me toasty warm into temps in the high 20's. Haven't had a chance to use it in ...

Re: Waterproof socks.

It rains a bit here.

Re: Waterproof socks.

I think it sounds hokey. Why would you need to stand in a stream in your socks? Waterproof boots already exist and whether the socks "breathe" or not they certainly wont do so nearly as well as socks without the membrane. And even if the inner layer is wicking, wick it to where? You can't wick it t...

Re: My new Bug Out Bag

An alternate belt for heavier loads. The other belt worked fine but was a little short in length for my waist. This one is bigger all around with thicker padding and is very supportive! Just from walking around town this is easily the most comfortable bag of this size/type that I have ever worn. I'v...

Re: My new Bug Out Bag

What I'm saying is the actual materials cost that I spent before constructing that bag was somewhere in the neighborhood of $100. That's not including the price of the items I'll be putting in it or the time that I spent designing and constructing the bag. You have way too much talent for a mere mo...

Re: My new Bug Out Bag

To make? Mostly just time. I'm not sure because I haven't tallied it all up, but $100 or less in actual materials costs is probably a fair guess.

Re: Yukon Outfitters Hammocks?

You can easily make your own hammock with some parachute nylon or comparable material. 1.9 oz. Ripstop nylon is common and some people even go to lighter weight fabrics than that. If you can fold over an edge to sea hem, you can sew a simple, basic gathered end hammock. Just remember when sewing the...
