    image.jpeg image.jpeg image.jpeg image.jpeg So I decided to learn to sew, so after a lot of frustration and wasted material I'm starting to produce acceptable gear. Kryptek Highlander 500d cordura, clamshell design, 20" x 11" x 5" with yoke style straps .

    I taught myself by wasting a lot of material before I started to figure things out.

    That's awesome. I do some leatherwork by hand, and can manage some sewn repairs by hand, but I've only messed machines minimally and the skill it takes escapes me. That's a great looking pack for sure.

    Awesome job! I haven't touched my thread injector in a while now. I need to dust it off and start some new projects. Where are you getting the cordura from?

    I buy mostly from Rockywoods Fabric, with the exception of the kryptek which I get from eBay. kryptek will not sell to individuals and I have not found anyone that sells it .

    It is a good thing you don't live in east TN or I would be trying to buy this.

    I thought I clicked on the buy/sell/trade thread. I was excited to see no one had bought this yet. I was happy. Then I realized I was not in the correct forum and I am no longer happy.

    Awesome work bro!
