Gear Making! Thread for do it yourself-ers...
« on: December 14, 2005, 07:43:37 PM »
Thought me and Nate going back and forth was taking too much away from the original idea of the sexy gear thread so I thought this would be more appropriate.

This is not a showcase of items for sale, I am not trying to peddle my wares on this site, and hope others do not. None of these items are for sale. This is to inspire guys who want legit gear but can't spare the coin to get working on making their own gear.

To start things off right here is a bunch of stuff I have done lately.



 









The bag with the Kenyan flag is a "man-bag" I use for church, I finally relented to a bag due to all the stuff I was collecting. I have the Kenyan flag on it becasue I lived there as a missionary for the LDS chuch.

Well, I have the feeling that when I make gear, I'm out of my lane. Since, David owns the highway.

I also noticed, when he posts his gear, he doesn't say "This is only like this because of ____". Which, I do! I'm like the rookie. Sad, but true.

In other news, here is a rig I just got done making. I didn't take as much time as I should have, it could be better.




Hey, look! Stray threads!

Nice thoughtful design and execution, Nate!  

Are you wearing pants?

Good rig. Plenty of room on that thing, I like the utility pouch.

Yeah, I would have guessed you were storing your pants in the pouch, but I was kinda flat...

Todays project:



It may look a little baggy for the M4 mag, that is becuase it is for AK mags.

New gear for today!

This is a horizontal GP pouch for small items.





Here is a close up of the quad pistol mag pouch showing that it will hold both double stack (glock 19) and single stack (1911) mags.

Horizontal GP pouch is sexy, nice touch with the velco on the front.

Can it hold a Pringles can of chips? That's the important thing.

I'll be having some gear made by the end of the day, I hope.

If you are referring to Coyote 498 then there is none pictured and none can be procurred without buying a crapload. If you are talking about the coyote khaki then you can get it from www.paragear.com under raw materials.

Daily gear fix...

This is a concealable vest for soft armor to go under a chest rig.























So much to look at....
