Finally got time to start playing with my new foam padding. Very clever stuff and does the job nicely. Around 3mm padding each side. Fully lined with a UL polyester. Just a prototype at this stage as im still waiting on some supplies for the strap mounted version and will convert to aquaguard zips in the final product. 24g which is a quarter of my current case.
@edh ill still make you a quickdraw orteleib version in a fabric of your choice when you are back but it wont be going into production
That camera bag would be very interesting if you could make it into a shoulder pack version. I used Zpacks shoulder pack during my latest trip and it was perfect to have the camera closeby all the time. If it had padding and a waterproof zipper it would have been more or less perfect
Nice! For a shoulder pack i think it would need to be slimmer. I like that the straps are wide. The ones on my bag cut in to the shoulder strap way to much. A mesh on the front to store your sunglasses wouldn't be wrong either
Paul, I've been musing over an MYOG inflatable cuben pillow.
Despite numerous attempts I've never found an inflatable pillow or the like that works for me. They always seem too bouncy or too squidgy.
These days I pull my spare base layer over the head end of my mat and stuff it with jackets etc. Works great for me and I'm carrying the components anyway.
