Introduction: Don't Throw Away That Old External Frame Pack Just Yet.

Picture of Don't Throw Away That Old External Frame Pack Just Yet.

This is basically an update to my post for my Go/Hiking pack.

So, I pretty much love the pack I've been using for years now and I'm not really looking forward to the cost of upgrading to a frame pack that would suit my needs.
A while back I was cleaning out my closet and ran across two old frame pack that I used when I was....... well......"younger".
sitting there trying to decide if I should throw them out or not (I hate tossing stuff that I can put to use, even if not for it's intended purpose.) I started thinking about how to incorporate it into me existing pack, breathing new life into an old bag.
So, the images that follow should give an idea of how I went about it. Honestly, it was a really simple mod that was pretty close to 100% reversible 

Just as a side note, the second frame is going to be made into a bike trailer. May be a while but I'll post that as I go as well.

I do hope this gives an idea on how to re-purpose that old pack and reinvigorate a pack that suits you better.
