Thank you Wilderbeast
« on: March 16, 2014, 10:22:57 PM »
I came across an old USGI canvas buttpack that I've had for a while. I wanted to convert it to a shoulder-carry type bag rather than the the belt & load bearing suspenders for which it is designed. I had a few different shoulder straps but no solid ideas about attaching them securely to the bag. I PM'ed Wilderbeast about the whole mess. I didn't know really what to ask for but asked him if he had any ideas. He worked his magic and sent me the solution. A 2" wide, adjustable length sling with the same metal clasps as are on the USGI suspenders. It works perfectly and I didn't have to alter the bag, attempt to sew anything, worry about some improvised attachment coming loose, etc. I'm looking forward to getting it dirty. Thanks again Wilderbeast!

Sarge,

I'm glad I was able to find something that worked for you.  Thanks for your comments.

Upon this a question arises: whether it be better to be loved than feared or feared than loved? One should wish to be both, but, because it is difficult to unite them in one person, it is much safer to be feared than loved.

My opinion is not all that well received around here, but I know a good one when I see one, so I can only say that,

I love being out in the woods!   I like this quote from Mors Kochanski - "The more you know, the less you carry". I believe in the same creed, & think  "Knowledge & honed skills" are the best things to carry with ya when you're out in the wilds. They're the ultimate "ultralight" gear! ;)
