    I've started on the final version of the add-on pocket. Double the padding and velcro loop for the interior of the main pocket.

    I also whipped up something out of boredom. It's a 10x12 accessory pocket kinda like a certain one that's already made...but in waxed canvas!

    I finishsd the final version of the front pocket I've been developing for my Umlindi. It's velcro-lined, has a segregated top pocket for instant retrieval of important items(hat, neck gaiter, gloves), waterproof 500D Cordura, and double- or triple-stitched on most seams...plus the seams are taped for strength. I love the end result.

    Next up is a proper top pocket, for when more storage is needed.

    The mother in law installs fiber optic cable for a living, and has been talking about wanting a nice tool bag for her everyday tool carry. She stopped by today and I surprised her with a little something.

    These aren't the best shots, but they get the idea across. It's waxed canvas, double-walled. Front zip pocket for accessories/keys/etc. Dividers inside to keep the tools organized. Now I wanna make something similar for myself, with the nyco ripstop Multicam fabric I picked up today lol...

    Thank you good sir! I'm enjoying making things. I'm about to make a number of the wallets in 1000D Cordura Multicam :)

    Thank you sir! I prototyped it in 'inferior' materials and carried it for a while. Then I produced it in 1000D and Mil-spec/color-matched velcro/elastic/webbing. I'm enjoying it a lot.

    The problem is that I'm starting to feel the limits of my machine, when I hit four layers of 1000D Cordura and up to four layers of grosgrain tape. It requires a sharp needle and loads of patience.

    Today I made a prototype add-on pocket/compression panel for the Tarahumara.

    I'm making the 'real' version of the pocket above, with modifications to allow it to mount go a Tarahumara, Umlindi, and various other packs. I also deleted the ridiculously-low-utility front pocket in lieu of velcro for patches, and redid the interior organization with a simple slip pocket covered in loop. This will allow Tool Rolls, 58 Pouches, or various other customization.
