    OK, that kinda makes sense to me. So the tension is only adjustable on the needle thread, right? And if it's not tight enough, it's not pulling the bobbin thread through/tight?

    Ok, I guess I'm hoping that the uq and a tq are sufficient and would be easier/smaller to pack than a bag. Space is an issue for me (not weight so much). I really like my pack, but it is small.
