I'm looking for a decent enough backpack to use with my Bespin/Dagobah Luke costume. I have a Yoda, but no backpack. I'm not looking for anything uber-accurate, just something close that doesn't say Nike or Jansport on the side. Wink I've tried looking around some, but have had no real luck.

Any advice or leads would be appreciated!!

Thanks!

perhaps try a army surplus store to find an old WWII olive drab ruck sack.

My roomy had a rough time trying to find anything in existence that would work. He ended up making his. He was even thinking if he could find something similiar in style, he could possibly try to dye it to get the blue color, but didn't have any luck there either. So...you may end up needing to make it from scratch. It didn't sound too difficult, but he did have help.

Found this.....

http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B000KZJ9ZM/ref=s9_simh_co_p200_d0_i1?pf_rd_m=ATVPDKIKX0DER&pf_rd_s=left-1&pf_rd_r=13CY3S6B0NHBN2F3A2Q2&pf_rd_t=3201&pf_rd_p=1280661682&pf_rd_i=typ01

Not canon accurate, but it will work, I think.

what about his one?

it would require some modifying, but it could work in the end...

That'd probably be too much modding to be worth it.

The one I found is not bad, but the Yoda I have is too small.

found this interesting backpack, I think it could pass if one would mod the straps. What do you think?
