Re: ideas on a bag
You don't have to specifically order an internal frame, you can cut the cost by going to your local hardware store, Home Depot, Lowes... and purchase a wooden dowel rod (get a thick one). Cut two pieces to length and screw the end boards of the frame back on the rods with 2" wood screws (drill pilot holes first). As a matter of fact anyone could build their own homemade frame that way if their bag did not have one.
