How to make the Tomb Raider Classic Backpack
Written and designed By Sina!
Reference Pictures

This visual tutorial shows how to build a classic game-style backpack from a cardboard box, a pair of cargo shorts and a few odds and ends. The basics are included in the photos, but I have reproduced the English text as captions below the image for those using online translation programs. If you're having trouble finding any of the materials, check our Shopping Links page.

Notes from the author: Please read whole tutorial before you start yourself. I don't mention everything at the beginning and you might want to prevent the mistakes I made. As for the colour, I know it has to be darker. But I think it's too expensive to paint it, perhaps I'll make a new bag with better material and better colour in the future.
