The strap detail is still a bit of a mystery.
It would appear you need double straps on the top, The main load bearers go down 2 inches below the nape of the neck and the others to the top of the pack to adjust the hang or set or whatever it's called. Right??
The hip strap is a mystery also.
I found directions to make a G4 Pack. I will probably sew them on like the pattern directs. I think I will sew on a reinforcement patch over that area.
A question: Bar Tacking, per se, requires a serger or similar machine, right??
I will have to sew on with a box and x plus a few straight passes, since I don't have that machine. My daughter has one, but it's an hour drive there, so I'll pass on theoption until/if I encounter problems.
I plan to get the bundling straps on and complete before I worry about these parts.
