I began building an abundance of fabric leftovers and was seeking to put them to good use. I few of these items that I built from leftovers I grew quite fond of and they have now found a place in my usual gear setup.
First up is a HyperD 300 ridgeline pocket. I've really grown fond of using this fabric. Amazingly durable, waterproof, yet has a softer feel and is very easy to work with. Fully detachable from the ridgeline and some extra strength velcro holds strong even with a good amount of weight in it. Probably shouldn't mention what I plan to keep in it, but it could be used for a wide variety of things. Have to thank the wonderful crew at Dream Hammock for the idea for this piece.
Next, one of my newer Multicam pieces, a separate hammock suspension bag. I guess it would be what some call a sap sack. Essentially I can keep my hammock's suspension completely separate and never have to worry about wet lines or straps or sap getting on my gear. Made from some leftover 1.1 calendered multicam. Had to try to make it my own, so created some fold out whoopie bags from some Atacs-FG noseeum netting. Worked great and easily holds my 6' whoopies. They flip to the inside, so the whoopies won't ever fall out. The overall bag easily fits my 2" straps and if I wanted, a backup pair of straps, in addition to a pair of whoopies. Shock corded closure with a mitten hook.
First bag ready to be sewn in
Good interior shot with one of the two whoopie bags sewn inside. Those are 2", 6' long straps at the bottom of the bag.
Finally, I wanted a tarp stake organizer that still matched my primary multicam gear package. I'm one who prefers to keep lines wrapped around my stakes, so the typical organizer that only has room for the individual single stakes just wouldn't work. Tried to do a few personalized touches and am happy with the final product.
The primary material was some 1.5 Multicam Epsilon. I feared eventual wear at the bottom of the organizer, especially with some of my more pointy stakes, so I wanted reinforcement that would hold up. Some HyperD 300 worked perfectly and should hold up to almost anything thrown in it. Lots of grosgrain tabs border the organizer and it can even be hung as a ridgeline organizer.
This will accommodate stakes that are over 12" long. My 9" inch stakes sink below the visible line of the organizer into the pockets.
Velcro closure seals everything in and shockcord loops with cordlocks hold everything tightly rolled.
