New Backpack

My second DCF backpack wasn’t strong enough for 3,000km.

This time I got X-Pac! DCF was too complicated to me…Anyway I decided to use X-Pac VX07 HS for main compartment. Normally I buy outdoor fabric from OMM(Mountain Material Mart) but they only have one color in stock which is red. So I searched to find other shop who can sell it with small portions and there is one called “YUUKOU MARINE” sailing gear and material online shop. X-Pac is developed as sail cloth and the shop can sell it from 1m length, perfect.


今回のバックパックはX-Pacで!DCF(Dyneema composite fabric)は丈夫に作るには手間が必要、前作は600km歩かないうちに交換した失敗もあり強さと軽さのバランスが取れたX-PACに決定。いつもはOMM(Outdoor Material Mart)で買ってるけど欲しい生地は赤一色しかストックになく、他を探してみるとゆうこうマリンって帆船のギアと材料を販売してて小売もしてくれて色の種類も多くて、X-Pacの小売だと種類的には一番多いんじゃないかな。これはなかなかいい発見だった。


・X-PAC VX07 HS 1320×1000mm 2,800yen

・Dubon V69 Polyester Line 243m / 590yen


・Grogran tape 20mm×4m / 240yen

・Guyline Adjuster ×3 / 360yen


・Meruma(3D mesh)


Main compartment is just like a sack, no closure system with velcro or buckles. 
Having a long neck to carry extra stuff & 3D Mesh Pad(100yen shop) on the back for comfort.
One big mesh pocket accessible from the either side and rubber band to stable gears.

Two days to make all the parts and two more days to construct them together. Well this backpack is my favorite for all the time the shape, the color and simplicity. Cant wait for walking with it for the next 6 months.


二日間かけてパーツの製作、プラス二日で全てを縫い合わせ完成。完成前からもうお気に入りのこのバックパック、サイズとストラップの構造は Gossamer Gear Murmurから、ビッグポケットのデザインはGimmerBuildのPika packから後は今までの工作とTAの経験からのアイデアを詰め込んだシンプルで使いやすい予定のバックパック、早く使いたくてウズウズしてる〜。
