all metal back pack in progress
« on: Dec 07, 2012, 12:20 AM »
So instead of a back plate I wanted to do a pack but not something huge, and not a jet pack.  Rather something compact that looked like it served a purpose.  So I raided some thiings I had laying around and here is what I have so far.  I am thinking sort of a com pack/intel gathering set up.  Let me know what you think.




Planning a unique colloar piece to attach it to to keep putting it on simple.

A bit of advice. If you're going all metal for the backpack, Try to keep the weight down. Even fibreglass backpacks can be heavy. So don't go giving yourself a Hernia ;) .

To back up what Remo said; you want to remove all the guts from that.  Metal packs get heavy fast, even when they don't necessarily feel heavy in the beginning.

Already considered that, and am planning to keep it al lite as possible.  Might even be removeing a spot or two to put lexan in and side lite it for displays and such.

Alright some progress not a lot though.  Got a back plate made for the pack and am going to use binding posts to hold the pack togther so I can get inside it if I need to.  found and interesting piece I am useing for a second antennea  and caouple tubes as power coupelings.  So far it is maybe 3-5 lbs. and trying to keep it under 8 lbs.

You MAY want to indent the backplate a bit to help it fit your back.

Thanks for pointing that out, though I might have a better idea.  Will post once I give it a try.
