hunting camo waistpack all done!
« on: 17 Oct 2015 - 17:43:56 »
Done with the beast! Thrift shop had the fabric, most of 2 yards with just a 14x17 piece missing in one corner in 1000D Poly/Nylon Mossy Oak Bottomland camo for only $6.99, so I acquired the fabric, then went and got the webbing and hardware needed to make it...

Specs;
16 long, 10 high, 6 deep for a 960 cubic inch main pack volume

7x3 MOLLE webbing panels on padded belt wings

38" total belt pad length

16x6 shoulder pads

4-6 compression straps

2 bedroll/pad straps

weight? I have no idea.... maybe a pound and a half to two pounds?

This is an ideal to me bird hunting rig... Could use for camping, but really, I have plenty of bags for just camping ;)


Pattern cut out for the waistpack design.


Enormous shoulder pads; the better for use with rifles or shotgun buttstocks for hunting


Large hunting waistpack all done; it is easily the largest of the waist/butt packs I own. From L-R below the newly made waistpack, DCU MOLLE add-on pouch/Get-home bag/overnight bag, DCU USGI MOLLE Waist Pack, Olive green copy of USGI butt pack


Detail of the side compression straps for the pack


Top straps for compression or pad/bedroll


Zipper detail; only the second time in my entire life that I have attached a zipper to something... Might have to redo the lid corners though.


Loaded up for pictures; pad on top, two Coyote Brown pouches per side on the MOLLE belt panels. I honestly think Ranger Green MOLLE pouches would blend better with it..shown on top of the old Mossy Oak Shadow Leaf camo poncho I made a long long time ago..
