NEEDED INFORMATION ON VIKING BACKPACK

Thu Jul 30, 2020 8:48 pm

I have a need of a photo of a Viking backpack, especially the backside, to aid in the reproduction of the harness on it. I do have a nice photo of the front side:

and I can see how the harness is made. However, I can not tell what happens on the backside to both the 1" and the 2" webbing.
Thanks for any help.

Allan- I don't have a Viking, but I do have a SeaCraft with a very similar strap setup. SeaCraft straps are the same thickness, but they do run double on the tank side. If pictures of the SeaCraft can help, let me know I'll post some.

PLEASE do post those images. I have a guess as to what happens to the 1" and 2" webbing straps and your photos will help. Thanks.
