    Inserts for DLBP

    Members of the TB BST have been discussing the use of the DLBP for short hikes. Id like to add some support in the bag. Has anyone improvised a frame sheet or used a Freudian slip?

    The Medium Cafe FS is a great fit for the lower shingle pocket and gives some great organizational options!

    I’ve hiked with my DLBP, I posted a picture of myself climbing the Teide summit with my DLBP last year here:

    I do have dedicated hiking backpacks, but I’ve used the DLBP on non hiking holidays because I like it better for walking around a city wearing non hiking clothes. What kind of support do you want for the DLBP? I personally think it’s fine without anything added for structure, if you take care what to pack where.

    If you want padding in the back a good idea would be to use an old gym mat and cut some inserts for the pockets - you could also use them to sit on if you take breaks. The FS might be a good fit, but I personally wouldn’t take things on a hike that would be a good fit in a FS.

    Like this idea! I cut up some packing foam that came with electronics and furniture... does help a little, if not carrying heavy/hard/pokey things.
    I will try this! We have some old mats lying around... Thanks!!

    I like the lightness of the DLBP, so I use a layer, either a windbreaker, sweater/cardigan or, a light polartec vest/scarve/ in the main compartment lower pocket.

    The main compartment top pocket is perfect for a tablet, small laptop in a Tom Bihn Cache, or TB Accessories like 3D Cubes or HLT, or a paperback.

    The front pocket is perfect to keep a water or thermos bottle upright, provided a 3D Cube or a lunch box, is placed next to it to keep it upright.

    The DLBP and Small Zippered Shop Bag have replaced my S19 and Large Original Shop Bag as my Going Outside Day Carry.
