I know it might be above your current budget, but I found a slightly used Brother KE430F down in Texas:

And like food, a lot of whether or not it spoils, depends on storage.  Was it exposed to prolonged UV, solvent, fumes, etc.

Events, news releases... that sort of thing / Re: Raine MOLLE Cover for Tubes Cummerbunds

I am the designer of the Bridger line.

Thanks for the shout out Ryan!

You can support us on Kickstarter through the following link: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/256206016/molle-cover-for-tubestm-cummerbunds-plate-carriers

Essal, you are sharp, armor was one of the initial requirements. Our patent covers hard and soft armor inserts. We have lots of stuff in the works.

WBTactical, We did a kickstarter to help market the launch and because we thought it would be a fun thing to do (also helps show the boss there is a demand). It pushed me to learn and implement better photography and marketing, which we have not been great at in the past. I highly recommend the experience, the toughest thing is getting the word out. Expect to see a lot more mid and large companies in the tactical market doing kickstarters. For example if company X wants to see if an existing product would be wanted in woodland.

Stay tuned, we have a lot of stuff coming out with these solutions through Raine and our partners.

A main line of our business is helping other companies design and manufacture their products. The Bridger line helps us to market our design and manufacturing capabilities to new customers (Companies and individuals).

I use size 20 for Tex 70 (#69/E) bonded nylon thread in my Tacsew T-111. I've never had any problems related to my thread or needle size. If I were to step up a size in thread I'd get a bigger needle.
I've sewn anything from light weight nylons to 1000D Cordura with it, but I don't think I'd go any bigger if I were to sew anything lower than 500D.

It's like food, it's a best before but not necessarily bad after. Manufacturers guarantee towards the specs it's produced after.

Doesn't someone on the forum work for Raine? Or am I mixing up people?

I think it's a great solution to a problem that is so obvious I'm surprised with the popularity that FS have had with Tubes.

As a freebee for Raine- make one that has room for an soft armor insert (and sell the insert too).
