    I've used the second varient, but with the webbing starting at the pack seam, molds to your pelvis better I think. Though I've not spent much time with hipbelts, not often needed with what I do.

    Thanks Pala, I have used the second system previously which was nice but I kept forgetting the two adjustments were available hah. The webbing on my belts runs through the wings with a bartack at each end to assist with load carrying, the webbing on this belt is also sewn into the mesh just below the central run of the wing. I have found this assists with load distribution. A few people have commented on the thickness of the webbing also, this would be upped for a customer pack :)

    Sorry mate, just seen this. Yeah. It will be a little lighter when I've trimmed the webbing down to my preferred sizes. I ship all packs with extra long webbing straps and extra shock cord and cord locks so owners can customize a little.

    I'd estimate the finished weight to be about 460-470g

    Hey thanks, the web site will soon be live. I'll post it up soon.

    Reference testing, as much as I appreciate the offer, feedback from real life users is key to develop any product. Unfortunately I cannot afford to provide sample products at this time.

    Ps. Still a great looking pack though :)

    It shouldn't do, it's galvanised steel

    It has been "trimmed" more than usual but I guess I'll find out :)

    Heating galvanised steel gives off zinc fumes......not particularly pleasant

    Plenty of stainless steel square/ rectangular mesh on the Bay.....I bought some a while back (grate support for the Tri-tri) after emailing seller of variously sized mesh with the specific aperture/ wire gauge I was after......infinitely cheaper than getting TD to send the part.

    The wife bought a 20m roll of galv stuff years ago for a college project so I've just been using up the left overs for pot stands :) She wants to line some new planters in the garden with it so it should all get used up soon and I can buy some shiny stuff :)
