Trash Bags Backpack Update

Today I picked up my custom Trash Bags backpack from Andy at Trash Bags. It was in the shop for a some upgrades. Over the last few months Andy has developed a new strap system and he graciously offered to make some alterations to mine.

The back originally looked like this

and it now looks like this
It's got new straps, a new waist belt, and the addition of the side wings.

Prior to this it was a great pack for carrying a large load, such as when I took it to New York for a week. It's plenty big enough to live out of. The problem was that it just didn't hang right when empty. The wings fix that.

it's like a cordura hug

Thanks for the upgrade Andy. This once more proves the advantages of buying from local craftsman.
