The Scuba- Zimmerbuilt Hammock pack

#1

Post by Scuba » Mon Feb 22, 2016 9:10 am

Made with Multicam Xpac. The multicam Xpac is a tiny bit heavier than the regular xpac so total weight is 38 oz (including back pad) as opposed to the usual 33 oz. Both side pouches are mesh instead of the usual one zippered. Still have the one zippered quilt pouch.

I dont know how much more it was per se. Prices have most certainly changed since Sarge got his, at least I would think. The standard Xpac fabric as about $10 per yard cheaper. The Base price for my pack was $325 the add in stays, upgraded lumbar pad and shipping.

Chris worked with me every step of the way and is very detail oriented. Changes I made vs the Bowdine/Vining packs, was I replaced the Zippered Hammock sleeve and made it mesh just like the tarp sleeve. I also added some ladderLoc straps to the bottom so if I want to bring my chair and/or table, i can just strap them onto the bottom. We were going to change the top from a dry bag style closure that has become standard on the hammock style packs but couldnt decide on a better option either functionally or aesthetically.

I "officially" ordered it (invoice sent to me) on Jan 30, and I will get it in the mail this week sometime.
