I'm curious if anybody has tried to clone the Packa yet?
I've been investigating rain gear, and I really like the concept, but $110 is more than I'll willingly pay for just about any piece of kit, save maybe my pack and sleeping bag.
It seems like a light weight nylon rain coat could be pretty easily modified to include the bag cover. The clever stowing method might be harder to duplicate, but I've got some ideas. Anyone who owns one willing to comment on how easy it looks to copy?
