I don't think that they're external frame; I didn't see a one. It basically looks like a HUGE rectangle with straps. I think that's what it is; stuff wrapped up in a tarp with straps attatched.

A yukon pack is a tarp opened up with all your stuff in the middle and then you roll the tarp up and tie it down with paracord, the only "frame" is what you put in it and in what way. Has anyone used one? What do you think of them?
i've never used one, but i watched some of that show. what they did was lay their tarps out, packed everything according to weight/ratio, and then folded the tarp around all of there "nesessities" and tying it off with para chord. they had duct tape covering their shoulder straps and a make-shift sternum strap also. it's pretty much a pack made from a tarp. brilliant if you're in that kind of situation, but overkill for anything else.
it is pretty awesome that they made a backpack out of their tarps.... but still, just overkill.
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.
Buy Matt a Beer
$60.00 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.
Feed Matt a Burrito
$60.00 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.
Finance the Shopping Cart
$60.00 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.
