Kyber Field pack discussion topic

10 posts in this topic

Hey troops,

Before I start with this thread, is there anyone who has or knows a trooper with a completed Kyber pack? if so, post pictures of it here and a tutorial of how to build one.

The only thing I know about it that a so called "Alice backpack" was used for the base of this fieldpack.

Amongst the additional parts is a RAF gearhook, which is placed on the right strap facing forward.

An antenna, a pice of tubing and the part that is most in your face, the (mortar)rack on the back.

 

Looking forward to an interesting conversation! :duim:

I have good pics and am just starting to build another one right now. There are some threads on FISD we might be able to pull over from FISD.

It's better to generate our content instead of borrowing from FISD when it comes to our pack builds. Shawn, if you could document  your build it would be greatly appreciated by troopers for years to come.

Myself (Paul Prentice) and Ireachy (Ian Reach) have been studying, researching and recreating an accurate reproduction of the Rogue One Crystal Patrol; Pack for over a year now and we are happy to help you build an accurate thread for it on here. There has been a long standing thread over on FISD however photo bucket has taken a lot of pictures down. The thread is also available here on facebook  here https://www.facebook.com/rogueonetkbackpack/ Below is a picture of my current pack which features the longer antenna (there are 2 versions of the antenna shown on screen and in other reference imagery)

We have painstakingly deconstructed the pack and rebuilt it from the ground up identifying different webbing that has been replaced and even identifying the correct fishing rod used for the antenna. We are still improving and researching parts of the pack and continuing to attempt to make an exact replication of the packs seen onscreen.

Thank you so much Paul! We would love to get a nice build thread on here so people can build their own. 

The Facebook page is immensely helpful!

Hi, I can pull all our work from the FB page and construct a thread on here if that would be of use. It may take a couple of weeks to complete but I am happy to shift it all over here as this is now the home of the Crystal Pack.

That would be so great! Thank you. We are trying to spread the word that these new packs live over here now. Hopefully we can get someone with the armor and pack to be our model.

Not many folks, if any have completed that armour build yet. I believe Jim Tripon is offering his version of the armour for sale and a few are building as we speak. The pack itself is a fantastic piece and one of the only modern SW props that still uses all real world, found objects to build it. So far we have identified nearly all the parts of the pack except for a couple of pieces that we are still working on such as the weather shroud and the antenna tip.

The parts of the pack to date include the RAF quick release clip, M75 Swedish back pack frame, LC1/LC2 alice pack, woodland camouflage padded shoulder straps, metal slider buckles from Ebay, polypropylene webbing, cotton canvas webbing, Norwegian grenade case, Avanti Precision X 12ft float rod, surgical tubing, antenna tip and 25mm cam lock buckles.

This can all be listed with vendors in the thread I will post. Some of the items are now very hard to find such as the fishing rod which is now obsolete (I have researched alternative rods that may serve as a good fill in until the original can be sourced on the secondary market) . The RAF clips I have a stash of and if any one wants any for a build I can supply them. The ammo box is becoming increasingly difficult to acquire and prices have soared.

Various techniques have been used to colour/dye and weather the pack and we have done our best to find ways to best mimic what was seen in various displays and on screen etc.

It is a thing of beauty once built and really has a presence about it. Weighing in at at somewhere between 6-7kg when complete it is a beast to wear on long troops as well.

I based my build off of Paul original build thread. This is one of the most comfortable packs you will ever wear.
