Great Lightweight Pack Cover

I love DIY gear, and when I needed a pack cover, of course I wanted to make my own. It is so light, packs down small, and surprisingly abrasion resistant. I got caught on some trees, and it took the abuse is stride!!

Easy peasy

title says it all. Easy to follow directions, works well.

Great kit

This is a great beginner DIY project to build my sewing skills. I'm working my way up to a hex tarp.

Needed Pack cover DIY

This was a fun great idea because I have never really sewn anything for DIY backpacking and instead of browsing through stores for a pack cover made elsewhere and a big name brand on it, it was great to just have this simple plain but very effective pack cover put together. I appreciate it differently having spent the time to put it together. I'm glad that I did this project first because I was almost going to start a bug shelter as my first project and it may have been to much for a first timer. I have to admit that the sewing machine is not adjusted right because the stitching comes out loose on the the other side. I'm not sure why because I don't sew often.

Great value.

Made mine the other day from the membrane silpoly PU4000 and love it! Really nice fabric to work with, easy instructions.
