Great to be part of SailNet Community.
I am completing my undergrad in university in Product Design and Environment Management. I am working on a small project to make bags by combining waxed canvas (waterproof) and old sails. I would like the bags to have max usability and solve some of the problems sailors or backpackers/explorers experience.
I would be very keen to hear from anybody who has travelled, went sailing (how ever little) and get your thoughts on any problems, issues, pros and cons that you experienced from your backpacks, duffel bag. From the day to day tasks such as washing, or, getting cloths out etc. the list is endless.
Please, if anyone has had experience with the use of a backpack please comment on any issues that you have had.
Would love to hear
