Another custom order. I haven't taped the seams yet.
Great stuff. Top notch craftsmanship.
Yes excellent excellent work !!!!! I just wish you were on this side of the pond !
Anyone on the forum sew Boonie hats?
I need to have a hat made in a special camo pattern
Thank you! I'm having so much fun. I'm excited for my new machine to show up Friday!
Thank you. There's always shipping
I've not messed with hats yet. What pattern? I just bought a great boonie from Helikon Tex in PL Woodland. It's a wonderful hat.
It is called HyperStealth Spec4ce Forest
That's wild! I like it!
Finished up a customer order today:
And took some "me time" to create a pocket for my inbound V2 Umlindi in Multicam.
There is actually some crazy development stories behind it just like the Multicam / Scorpion / OCP pattern drama.
The HyperStealth Spec4ce Forest was actually developed for the ANA on the US gov dime. The ANA didn’t want to pay the $$ for the exact pattern. So they swiped it and made a very similar pattern without having to pay the royalty’s..
The top 2 photos are the original pattern. The bottom is the ANA “knock off”.
I would love to find a hat in the real original pattern…
Have you thought of making some belt pouches? Specifically canvas or without any plastic backing. IMO there is a market for a good belt pouch since THW stopped making similiar
That is a wild story. I'll have to keep my eyes and ears open.
I'm an open book. If anyone has ideas, I'll whip it up.
Look what showed up today!
Awesome work, man. Very impressive.
Thank you much. I'm having a blast. I have vacation time in for next week, so hopefully I'll have loads of seat time with the new machine.
The customer order from up the page, all taped inside:
I forgot to post the Umlindi V2 wearing its new pocket.
And a sneak peak at a project I'm working on...
The sneak peak evolved...
Semi-finished. Needs some velcro loop on the flap, but otherwise pleased.
Lookin very tough
Thank you sir!
Ever thought of a chest rig rain cover.. like some companies makes those shells for backpacks.. @BrokenSVT a plastic bag is even sounding like an idea nexttime i head out on the zodiac in the rain. Save me from my own shameless ghetto vision from coming to life
