MG: Jesse Thompson from Industrial Alchemy took a concept I had for a day pack and made it happen. The first problem was fabric selection. Much of what is available for hunters uses cotton, but that's the wrong fabric for the mountains or rainy weather. It's important to use a stronger synthetic, which is what was incorporated into the day pack. Plus, the load is carried on the hips instead of the shoulders. By switching the point of the most weight, it lessens the burden on the back. In chukar country, where I do most of my hunting, that makes a huge difference.
