Hello all,

First of all this is my first post here, I'm a new member. My names pete and i do medium weight backpack camping. I frequent a bushcraft site usually. I have joined here to post an idea about rucksack design, and wondered if anybody fancied modifying a rucksack of there own to test this idea out?

I am usually caught carrying 15-20kg 30-45lbs as 5 days of food, water, clothes rucksack quickly hit 20lbs+ and theres nothing I can do to change that.

I found different types of rucksack uncomfortable to carry, I know I could cut 3lbs+ by dumping the hot food and drink but I do like a nice warm meal when out. So i tried to find another design for a rucksack which was more comfortable, which i think I did.

Is any one interested ?
