Something that might be of use to someone (even though I am new to this hobby/ way of life)  is the military back pack.  I saw a few at the army surplus store today, but didn't plan on making a back pack, so didn't get one.   They come with a great way to support it, plenty of places to attach things, and I'm sure there not hard to mod to put just about anything on.

This is what I am planning on using for mine.  I will post some pix of the military backpack system for you.  The old ones use aluminum tubing, but the newer ones are strong black plastic.  You can also attach any straps that you like.

I opted not to go with a harness for my jetpack.  My pack is a standard Boba style pack and is made from sintra, cardstock, PVC tubes, various plastic bottle parts, and some bondo.  It weighs only 5 pounds total.  It bolts directly to my back plate with four 1/4" bolts.  The back plate then bolts onto my vest's shoulders with an additional four 1/4" bolts.  (There's also a lot of velcro between the vest and the back plate.)  My vest is adjustable and fits very snug and is very comfortable to wear even with the back plate and jetpack bolted on.
