I thought to post a few pics of my EDC setup. It started off with a black "Clawhammer" shoulder bag to replace my vulnerable "fanny-pack" hip bag. (And addition to a decent hip-bag to the 1TG range of bags would be wonderfull!) I soons added the "phone-pouch 014" (My iPhone 7 plus with Lifeproof case fits tightly.) to the bag and then the "glasses case 04" followed. (This really gives awesome protection to my Serengeti glasses.) I noticed that the carry-handle of my main bag had some abrasion to it (Andy immediately sent me a replacement-bag!) and this started my paracord addition to the bag that just snowballed to the braiding that has been done to it now...I find the braiding makes for a much more comfortable handle and the shoulder-strap is much softer with the added braiding. (A note here: the shoulder strap folds onto itself at the tapered ends under my braiding allowing it to become somewhat loose - I'm working to fix this with the addition of some firmer material there or I might replace the whole strap with a braided one. In the pics you will also notice I added a d-shackle rated for climbing and fall protection. I think it looks good and adds just one more "function" to my bag. You might also notice I have replaced the zipper-pulls with something different. (feel free to ask how to do this.)

You guys are welcome to ask me about what I carry IN my bag, but this can also be a topic for a new post.

I'm not sure if you guys know how my braid is tied so I thought of making a few pics to show the basic idea of the braid.
I mostly use Paracord 550 Type 3. (You may try paracord.eu for great service --- I'm not sure if I'm allowed to post URL's so my appologies if this is not allowed --- I have no affiliation with the company so it is not promoting just a handy link.)

Feel free to ask about braiding these handles or about the monkey-fist or axe handle you saw in my EDC pictures.

I'm busy with my second sling-bag at this very moment. I had a telephone pouch in multi-cam and a black sling-bag which did not really match to I decided to bring them together using some multi-cam paracord. tell me what you think.

Okay I think I have the problem with the strap folding under the braid: I shaped some plastic to fit between the braid and strap to prevent it from folding on it self.

Oh boy, while I was busy with my sling-bag I found one of the molle-retaining straps is starting to ravel-out....this is on the telephone pouch attached to the bag. I do not think it is all too serious, but something not expected. Guys at 1TG can you look into this? it would be bad should this problem happen to a non devoted 1TG member...;)

Kiwi you’ve beat me to it!
It is a very basic and easy braid to learn - if anybody is interested, 30m cord is JUST enough to do a bag as I did.

While I'm busy with my set-up - a few lows....this focusing on the "Doppleganger" pouch:

As in the pictures: the white stitching....can you please replace that with black on the black pouch?
And then the front telephone holder: the bottom corners of the telephone are exposed and very vulnerable in this pouch - can you widen the bottom flap to cover the corners, please? (In the picture it is where my finger indicates.)
