a camping he will go..
David is taking a backpacking class this semester for his PFW credit. He went on a weekend camping trip with the class this past weekend. He asked me to make him a day pack that can hold his camelback for hiking around. We found this waterproof digital camo fabric a while back at hancock fabrics that he liked. We also found that REI sells buckles, clasps, sliders and fun stuff like that.
I laid out his water bladder and measured everything out on some newsprint. In the main compartment there's a pocket for the bladder. There's also a small zipper pocket on the outside for small things. I put a clip for the straw piece on the shoulder strap to keep it in place.
I hope to get some better pics of the bag soon. These are from his trip this past weekend. Isn't he handsome? :)
