Some of you guys have expressed interest in having a detachable top lid on the DG3 like the DG16. I like the concept because it give me some versatility in scaling the pack up or down as needed. With a DG16 style lid you can easily bump up to 65L or more.
In this case, we are taking Dirt Pro's DG3 and making it detachable. So I wanted to post some pics for those of you that might want to do-it-your-self. So with no further a-do.
First off we gotta remove the lid. I use my regular scissors, just be careful.
Trim the side corners even with the back.
I trimmed around whole lid, making a slightly smaller shape, then re-stitched the two layers together. This is very helpful for adding binding tape.
