Just replaced the cardboard base I’ve been placing in my 3rdArm-1 to maintain its boxy silhouette.




I’ve seen 3a-1 base’s sag due to the bag being over-stuffed/weighed down, and added a lightweight flooring to try and fix that.


Here’s the deformation with a single 32 oz. Hydro Flask, and here’s the deformation with the cardboard insert + Hydro Flask.



My only gripe is that the cardboard still bends and must be replaced when too out of shape. I don’t have a more solid material to insert without tearing up the inner X-pac or jabbing into my sides. 

If you’re interested in adding your own base, the cardboard’s dimensions are 5.12 x 13.25 inches.

Should i be worried about GT seams coming off like this? Any way to easily re-glue this?


You can use Tenacious Tape to patch the tape or try to re-glue it. If you're properly caring for the jacket and the delamination is localized to that spot, there's no need to worry really.

That's not delam., just failing seam adhesive. Use a Gore-Tex specific product (McNett makes many), tho I'd try to actually get the seam tape re-adhered instead of 'patching' over.

If that's an older jacket, then I'd say there's not much cause for concern. Doesn't appear to be any soiling, etc.
