Modified pack straps and belt

 

Modified the lower straps of the vintage pack, to better fit me, and the waist belt as well; so that the buckle is closer to center, and providing me with the space to put gear on it… Also found one of my tents can actually fit in the lower compartment, with a 9×12 tarp as well, and that the pack can fit the tent poles as well!

DSCN1765the tent poles fit the corners of the pack, with the cut outs on the shelf, there is plenty of room in there for clothes and food, also, the 5 other pockets are empty, so as to enable me to pack it better.
