Anybody have any idea where to find cheap yet durable packs? A friend suggested "Eco Gear"?

Army navy surplus store, flea market, A.l.i.c.e packs are great. You can also buy some fabric and sew one up, i did that a couple times over the years its a good time killer.

a hoe handle with a table cloth full of shit tied to it. you can use to handle for a weapon, make a guitar, sexual gratification, poking around dumpsters. the cloth can be put over a park picnic table so you dont look like a bum and hide your crap underneath it. a tent. a beach towel clothing for fat people, etc etc

there always wal-mart.... they used to have these camoflauge remington hiking packs for 20some bucks but i dont think they sell those anymore..... i think now they have 2 different coleman packs... one is 60 some dollars the other is around 30 i think...... i mean theyre cheap as shit but by the time it's completely falling apart youll have gotten your money's worth out of it....and if yer slick like that you can throw a few items in there and go to the self checkout

that material seems a little thin to me...but i guess it's lite....i wonder how waterproof that shit is
and it is very light...but I'm just a hitchhiker..not sure if it's good for railriders..alot of my brothers n sisters that train hop usually stick to pickles...guess it depends on your preference of travel..

Support StP!

Donations go towards paying our monthly server fees, adding new features to the website, and occasionally putting a burrito in Matt's mouth.

Total amount
$35.00
Goal
$100.00

Monthly Goals

  1. Paying the Bills
    $35.00 of $50.00
    The first $50 in donations go towards paying our monthly server fees and adding new features to the website. Once this goal is reached, we'll see about feeding Matt that burrito.
  2. Buy Matt a Beer
    $35.00 of $75.00
    Now that we have the bills paid for this month, let's give Matt a hearty thank you by buying him a drink for all the hard work he's done for StP. Hopefully this will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.
  3. Feed Matt a Burrito
    $35.00 of $100.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt has a beer in his hand, how about showing him your love by rewarding all his hard work with a big fat burrito to put in his mouth. This will keep him alive while programming new features for the website.
  4. Finance the Shopping Cart
    $35.00 of $200.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt is fed, perhaps it's time to start planning for those twilight years under the bridge... if only he had that golden shopping cart all the oogles are bragging about these days.
