Wonkothesane writes – “Here’s a great site with good information about making your own backpacking/outdoor gear. Their philosophy is simple “Not only is the price of backpacking gear outrageously high, but it’s difficult to find outdoor gear that exactly meets our specifications. Paying high prices for backpacking equipment, especially when it only partially satisfies our requirements, is problematic, to say the least. One alternative is to make your own – home made outdoor gear.” I can’t agree more.” – Link.
