John-

I’m, sorry I just reread your post and realized your looking for pocket mesh for a pack.. . . I was thinknig jacket liner pocket mesh. I would agree with the Quest. It’s a nice 1/4 in hole that’s not to big or small. The last pack I made I used a nylon spandex blend I got at the rain shed. It adds some weight but I liked the stretch. It allowed me to seam pocket edges into the pack sides so the pocket could expand but still lay flat. see pics I really liked the way it worked out.

I’ve attached some pic of a pack I made last winter to use as a winter day pack it’s size is based off the breeze as well. I even tried the revirse adjusters on the shoulder straps. Interesting idea but takes some time to get used to them.

Again sorry about the mix up.

I was looking at with great interest at the photos of how you mounted the pack shoulder strap buckle attachment towards the back of the pack on the bottom.
Instead of the sides like most pack shoulder straps are attached.

Is the reason you did this pull the load closer in to the small of your pack?
Have any of you you used this method on your packs ?

Thanks,
Terry

Terry,

A friend of mine had a GoLite Breeze pack I had used a few times in the winter and I copied the size and some of the design. The breeze was designed by Ray Jardine when golite was first starting out and really a popular design even today. But to answer your question yes I think the idea was the weight would center and carry the weight better. I’m not sure I pulled it off as well as his pack does but for the weight I tend to carry it’s worked fine. I also reversed the sliders which was something Ray did a lot. They do work well but unless your going to do it on a lot of your packs you kinda keep getting messed up. . . and say oh! this is “THAT” pac when adjusting.

I couldn’t find a back shot but this is what the breeze looks like. Worth looking at if your interested in backpack design.

John,
Thanks for your reply the strap design looks like it works because Aarn use this this same method with the buckle at the strap instead of the buckle at the rear.

I am going check out Ray way packs and try to find old breeze photos on the way back machine internet archive.
