Asset exchange / WTB: 500D M81 Woodland Cordura
« on: January 29, 2018, 10:01:30 AM »
After a couple of meters of 500D M81 Woodland Cordura, shipped to the UK.



2  has 430 bobbins. Very cheap...something like 0,40$ per piece. shipping is expensive so buy a whole bunch of em :).

I'm from HK originally so when I went back last year to visit family, I paid Kwok Hing a visit and picked up quite a few bits and pieces, to say the least.  2 for the sharpest pair of scissors I've owned to date.  They have a lot of stock but it's not displayed very well at the shop at all.  I ended up describing the bit of kit I wanted to them with my rusty Cantonese.

Their English is pretty good, given the number of ex-pats, but having the advantage of knowing Cantonese does mean you can haggle (at least a bit)!

I made some a few years back out of litelok (with some 500d reinforcement).  The straps were a simple 1.5" webbing affair and there was a bit of 3mm plastazote for the back panel, making the whole bag stashable.  I'm on holiday and unable to copy over the link to fb page for photos unfortunately.

A tradition at the University of Cambridge is the extravagant May Balls at the end of the year, post exams.  My good friend was the head carpenter at John's this year and roped me into sewing the canvas covers for the wagons in the Wild West themed court.

Pouches / Adaptable Triple Ammo Pouch

Adaptable Triple Ammo Pouch
Slightly deeper than normal to accomodate EMAGs
Main Pouch
The pouch is lined with velcro for various inserts/lids.
There is grommet drainage, which is covered on the outer face with a strip of webbing, to prevent mud/snow from entering the pouch, whilst allowing drainage.
A QASM can be fitted to the lid and there is a square loop at the bottom of the pouch, where the metal triglide on the male buckle strap can slot through.
The webbing insert has the outer magazine under shingle retention, whilst the inner two are more securely retained with a reverse flap, which is secured against the velcro on the front of the pouch.

Packs and bags / A vintage style satchel

A satchel for myself.

I've gone for a more vintage look, with no plastic hardware or velcro! 500D cordura, milspec webbing and salvaged metal buckles.

A friend of mine made the leather patch of the shield of my alma mater.
