Any idea where I can get a plastic pack frame or plastic sheet suitable for constructing my own frame?

Looking at their site the link is for a source of Plastic sheet to build a frame with, not a pre-made frame or did I miss something?

No you read it right. It is a supplier of a bunch of stuff, and I linked to plastic sheets. You would have to cut it to whatever shape you want. It is not a pre-made pack frame. Sorry, that is what I thought you were looking for. If you want a pre-made plastic pack frame, you either call the manufacturer of one, or buy one and take the pack bag off. I could be wrong, but I am not aware of a place to just buy a plastic pack frame.

Couldn't you use something like fluted PP board ?
Light, cheap, easy to cut/saw into shape.

I've used the fluted material before. Great rigidity in one plane but not the other. My solution was 01 aluminum stay running vertical in parallel to flutes. Make sense?
