    image.jpeg image.jpeg image.jpeg image.jpeg image.jpeg Some pictures from my DIY backpack to inspire others. It's closed cell foam spray glued together. I cut most of it with a bansaw and sharp utility knife. Way easier than soft open cell foam. Fits like a glove and was essentially free using my travel backpack.

    I like that idea. :) All we need now is some closed cell foam. Though I expect if you have a lot of packages delivered you could get some free.

    Yeah, not sure where to source it. I got sheets of it from the shipping department where I work.

    Do you know if something like this(just the foam cutout itself) is available online?

    You can buy Pelican case "pick and pluck" foam online. You may find precut foam inserts as well.
