Seal Line pack at 70Liters is a nice over-night pack which provides waterproof interior. I've had the pack for a year where some of my own gear testing has provided great results for deep water filled canyon FUN!!
However, the pack does not have a load bearing hip belt The shoulder straps are excellent but around 25 - 30lbs of gear, the load sits firmly on my shoulders and digs in.
SO, while dismantling an old frame pack, the hip belt looks like an easy mod/add-on for the Seal Line ... I hope the photo loads/posts correctly ...
((((( See Below )))
NOW: Getting ready to attach the hip belt ... WHAT GLUE or ADHESIVE? Will I need to order a special glue product online? I live in a small town and hope that a general ACE Hardware will have the adhesive product that I need ???
Backpack material type fabric attached to this polyester material ... will it work? Can it work? Don't try it??
I'm not looking for full load bearing, I realize there is no frame in the pack, just a little shoulder relief for my next long canyon trek.
Thanks as always for advice and recommendations !!
