Some DIY backpacks that I’ve made in the past years


Some years ago I needed a backpack but I didn’t like the cheap ones. The good ones were very expensive.

I was looking on Internet for inspirations when I discovered that some people where doing military backpacks by themselves, so I thought: “If they are able to sew a backpack I don’t see why I shouldn’t.”

I spent so much time and money doing DIY backpacks that buying one, back then, wouldn’t be such a bad idea anymore.

I’m very satisfied by what I’ve learned and maybe in the future I’ll do some more, maybe using some sensors. Without this ‘adventure’ I wouldn’t not be able to sew and so to work on the SmileBack Project.

La Coccinella

The idea was to make a civilian backpack with a futuristic ahestetic using high contrast details.
With this backpack i also tested for the first time PALS system used in military field but without using webbing. The red paracord is, indeed, a substitute and in this way we can attach every pouch we want without have a military look.
