Same happened to my very old Fenzy (the one you see in my avatar).I have an old HCBC that's getting up there in years. The stitching on the external bag is fine but the internal air bladder is getting old. The whole thing has been updated with a shoulder dump valve, a power inflator and a parachute type harness. I need to replace the internal air bladder but they haven't been made in quite a few years.
So, I'm going to make my own! I'll take the old one apart as a pattern and have a supplier for the Polyvinyl C. material and the adhesive but don't know what gauge materiel to use. I could measure the old one once I cut it apart but would like to have everything on hand once I start the job. Does anybody know how thick the internal air bladders are?
I inserted a new bladder. I simply used an annular PVC floating device previously used by one of my children.
Something like this:
