Backpack Sewing Pattern

I’m too big! Case through the cracks. For the measure produced hardly any manufacturer.

Anyway, when it comes backpacks to me. With my 1,97cm height and a resultant back length of more than 61cm, there is hardly a fitting, ultralight copy.

“But what about your Exped Lightning 45 ?”

Clear that suits me already. But has an adjustable suspension system made of aluminum and is with me 1040g actually too heavy. Anyway, for the nextalpine crossing on foot from Vienna to Nice . And I’m looking for a frameless pack. At best, in less than 600 grams segment.

Industry deals are there, but as so often: Little on the scale=little in your wallet. So I turned to another solution. A backpack sewing!  Can you do indeed times.

Sew Frakta Backpack

Now I’m not an experienced backpack producer. Even a trained cutter I’m not. Nevertheless, there are in the vastness of the Internet many interesting resources and guidance that even beginners find the sewing vintage backpack easier.Particularly fascinated me here the idea of Kili from Sägeblog. His approach:to produce a backpack IKEA bags.

So these blue bags with names frakta. To toss in the one to 5 hours tiring his newly acquired POÄNG, MÖJLIG, TOFTBO or HECTARE.

The material of these bags is made of interlocking plastic woven ribbons. It is extremely robust and yet very light. In addition, it costs compared to Cuber Fiber, Dyneema Grid Stop, X-Pac or ripstop nylon only a tiny fraction of that.Namely 50 cents per bag. The losses in a complete failure of the project are limited almost mainly in lost lifetime. Almost.

But that this is not the case, I have this provided detailed instructions together. Before we start with the individual steps, here first the main features of this vintage backpack at a glance via Internetages.com:

  • A large main compartment-volume~45 liters
  • roll shutter
  • Breast and Hüftgur t
  • outer mesh pockets for bottles, wet gear and Kleinkrams
  • Pocket for Z-Lite inside
  • Z-Lite the Pack is some stability
  • Weight: 380g-with integrated Z-Lite Seat: 434g
  • adjusted to the individual back length: 61cm for my hulking 1,97m height

  • sewing machine *
  • Tailor Scissors *
  • French chalk
