Does anybody know how to make a good antenna (or buy...) that works great for portable use? I have an FT-817 and want to use it in my backpack on 6m. It should be able to work on 2m also...

Maybe anyone has another idea for a mount in the backpack?

Depends on just how big you're willing to transport. Dipoles work well, verticals work well if you can get enough groundplane underthem, and squalos work well too. M2 sells a squalo for about $120 that provides a good horizonal pattern if you mount it about 8 or more feet off the ground, but it is a little hard to transport.
