    DIY Stryker Clone

    I think it would work great. Cordura probably has a little better abrasion resistance so just depends on what you'll be hauling. I buy almost all of my fabric off ebay as "2nds". It is about half price and free shipping. But you won't find xpac like that. I order lots of stuff from rockywoods...

    DIY Stryker Clone

    Forgot to mention that i have been down the rabbit hole a bit on sticks amd you can build them slightly lighter than this but you cant build them cheaper. These are pretty much dead nuts 2#s a piece complete. A piece of emt will build a complete stick and its only a few bucks. These are way...

    DIY Stryker Clone

    I made them out of 1/2" emt tubing. Bends were made with a plain ole manual emt bender. Step distance averages around 20". Obviously they have to be varied to stack well. First set i made, i notched the cross pieces to fit. After that i decided its easier to just flatten the ends in a vise...

    DIY Stryker Clone

    Do it man. You will not regret it. I know all about that free time struggle. This was one of my most enjoyable projects so far because i was not in a hurry. Usually im trying to get something done last minute for a trip. Now i dont have any set plans until september, unless i draw an oryx tag...

    DIY Stryker Clone

    @fatlander this is it with my diy sticks that i run. I typically attach my saddle platform to the outside of the sticks. The top stick has a sling attached to it soi can i have sticks slung across my body when climbing. I get to tree, remove sticks, sling them over shoulder across body, and...

    DIY Stryker Clone

    I considered going that route. The only reason i did not is because this method is stronger. In the event that i find a need to put 100+ lbs in it, that sewn seam is much stronger than a couple of buckles. However, like you said, with adequate compression a good bit of stress can be relieved...

    DIY Stryker Clone

    One more thing i forgot to mention and that i havent added yet. The pics the member sent me showed a part in the sling portion of the panel that was folded and then sewn at the edes. Took me a minute to figure out why and then i realized what a brilliant idea it was. It causes the sling to form...

    DIY Stryker Clone

    When kifaru released the stryker, i liked it immediately. The price seemed very reasonable and i almost just bought one. But my frugality and diy spirit won once again. Just like every project for me, design seems to be the most time consuming part. I have grown to prefer to design every...

    Kifaru Stryker

    Here is a potential mod for you guys. I ended up just building a stryker instead of buying one. I wanted to be able to get more use out of it and sometimes i dont need a frame. So i added a piece of shock cord to roll up the panel and built a set of removable shoulder straps. Still gotta add the...

    I tend to agree. At least have attachment points on the side so you could add a pocket or bottle holder. Sent from my SM-G975U using Tapatalk

    Questions for the knife makers out there

    I would not call myself a knife maker but i have made several knives that i use exclusivley for animal breakdown. I prefer to repurpose steel for a few reasons. Im cheap, i find it more satisfying, and i can harden it myself with a torch. Like you said, belt options is a factor. But a 2" belt...

    Anybody use a design program?

    I use sketchup for shelters but good ole pencil and paper for everything else. Unless you are super fluent in a drawing program, pencil and paper will win almost every time. The reason i use sketchup for shelters is that i can draw some measurements to what i want and then measure the unknowns...

    Seeking Design Plans for Deer Blind

    You can probably actually find some full blown plans if you search google. Lots of build alongs on texasbowhunter.com in the diy. Speaking as the handy relative and friend, be cautious with roping someone into building it for you. This is a pretty big project and will consume a lot of time. Im...

    Sil Nylon/ Sil Poly tape

    Buy the 1/2" clear double sided tape from the office supply aisle at walmart. No need to put it full length of seam. I do about 6" pieces with about the same distance between them. Be careful not to stretch the tape before you stick it or it will bunch the fabric. You can slice the tape roll...
