Tips to make this Osprey porter pack cooler on my back?

 

http://www.ospreypacks.com/en/product/gear_hauling/porter_46

I have this pack that I want to take to Asia but I know the nylon is going to make my back soaking wet... Does anybody have any suggestions for something I could rig up to make it cooler/let air flow? I was thinking about rolling up some cotton t-shirts which will sit between the pack and my back.

Thanks,
 Scott

FiberFix Tape is as Durable as Steel and 100 Times Stronger Than Duct Tape [feedly]

 

Downside of this is that once the package is open you have to use the tape pretty much immediately, upside is the cost is only $6.  Seems like it might work for some type of pack repairs where durability and strength is needed and the cost of $6 is justifiable.  Consequently, an at-home use limitation, it appears.

camp footwear

 

Maybe it's anathema to ultra-light backpackers to carry a spare set of footwear, but I could sure have used a pair this past week, both for stream crossings and to get out of my boots while at my campsite. Does anybody on this list take a second set of footwear for these purposes?

Thanks.

    Things have been a little slow on this list recently, but today took the
    cake. The list digest was made up of two messages consisting of neither
    subject nor content. I hope that means that everybody is out in their
    wilderness of choice.

    Silnylon Treatment

     

    Jim,

                    Yeah, that’s pretty good for older silnylon that is starting to mist/leak. If it is stretched, badly 20:1 is more like it. For spinnaker, about 20:1 is good, it stretches pretty easily, often without being apparent, except from inside against a bright sky. Two coats will often do plain old nylon cloth. I got a bunch here a while ago that was mostly uncoated seconds. It needed treatment. For seams, about 5-10:1 is good. I often do both sides, though. A thin coat does not suffer from peeling like a thick coat does.

                    I brush it on an area, working it in pretty well, then move any excess out to the next area. I adjust as I go. The stuff is very watery and requires a lot of mixing, even while working with it. I slob it on and  work it in firmly and quickly, nothing gentle about it. I get a few brush marks, but only a few after it dries. It only adds an ounce and a half to a 9’x9’ tarp or  around .1-.2oz per yard. I am still using my 9 year old 9x12 tarp that was cut down to a shaped shelter and recoated this way.  I tried WG, but it evaporates too quickly causing the brush to “stick.”

                    My thoughts only . . .

                                    jdm  

     

     

     

    >Jim, I am guessing that the recoat you mention is between one part silicone caulking to 20 to 50 parts of mineral >spirits (low or no odor versions).

    >Are there any tricks except for gentle brush workmanship and not overloading the brush?

    Sil Nylon material to give away

     

    5 or 6 years ago I made TWO sub-16 ounce tents out of the sil nylon 1.3 oz material......

    Unfortunately, 2 hours into a rain deluge in the 100 mile wilderness, the material stopped being rainproof. (yes, really - I DESIGNED and MADE my own tent and its NOT rain proof). Not to rant, but its nice to have a group of people that can "feel my pain".

    Anyway, I don't want to through all the material away. Anyone out there looking to make several ditty bags ?

    I'll send it to you for $5 to pay for postage - sent to my paypal to make it easy.

    please send an email to: markwsullivan-/E1597aS9LQAvxtiuMwx3w@public.gmane.org

    thanks,
    "ATsully" (trailname)

    PS: these are put together tarp/tents. you'll also have a design that you can copy to make your own. I made one with the newer lighter material and its REALLY light.

But I'm wondering if anyone has a somewhat basic list in electronic format of the items you pack. I had one somewhere but when I changed computers apparently I've lost it. I don't go by a "check list" anymore I just kinda through stuff together. I guess I'm just being a bit lazy hoping one of you would have one handy.
