|You can just barely see the ice axe loop at the bottom. I also|
added a velcro loop to hold my trekking poles.
This pack cost me about $8.00 to make as the only materials I bought for it were elastic, thread and sewing machine needles. I still have lots of elastic and thread and two needles left that did not get used.
I don't think I have enough material to make a third pack from my old tent rain fly, so I may have to buy fabric the next time I make a new pack.
I'm sure the first few trails tests will show any seams that were not formed properly. I found the first bad seam before it even left the house and it is fixed now.
I have not weighed my new pack yet. I'm guessing it weighs about 10.8 ounces.
