Thanks!

Its super fun and easy entry point, you dont have to sweat the subtleties of pattern making and fit as much as apparel. Once you get the basic idea its endless.

Does anyone know where to find foil XPAC fabric like the one used in the 3A-MZ3 pouches? I checked the fabric suppliers from the first few posts and couldn't find anything. Thanks in advance for the assist!

Does anybody know where I can buy 1" slotted loops like this? I'm located in North America (Canada to be exact). I saw that DownRangeGear had them but they didn't respond to my e-mail so I'm not even sure whether they're still open for business.

Hey guys, just wondering - what material do you guys use for piping? I've been looking at my 3A-1 and noticed that the piping frays after awhile, is there anything that you guys use that won't fray as much but has relatively the same texture?

made a tutorial on how to make a cobra belt. Pretty simple diy project if you're just looking to start out.

you are probably refering to "edgebinding". Look at sailrite they have quite a selection, or grossgrain ribbon from extextil.

Trying to make the ACR buckle by 3d printing. 3D printed this out of silver. tried to make earrings with a jewelry designer but ended up turning it into a zipper pull

 

 

 

keep us updated! 3d artist myself. a designer i know makes leather rope knot necklaces (2nd image). this is just a small version i 3d printed in silver. was supposed to be an earring but turned into zipper pull.

I'm not sure which is more disturbing, the snake trying to lick her breast or the Barberella style eye make up.

Can anyone think of a way to turn a silver zipper black without interference of its function and without removing it from the fabric? Can you electroplate something attached to a flammable thing? 

I'm pretty sure I know the answer...

aside from the obvious damage it would cause to anything and everything around it, the resources used in both time and expenses would much exceed getting a like-for-like zipper in black and having it replaced by a semi-pro.

sorry :(

Thanks, yeah I'm putting together another test bag right now and one for a buddy out of actual x-pac. I wanna lock down a solid design and style for it before I actually start producing them for other people.
