    quick gear loft

    last night i finally got around to making another ridge line gear loft/pouch/whatever the correct term is. I had made one out of noseeum netting in the past, but it just didn't have any style points, so i scrapped it and went with the peak bag. Last night i was going through my scrap pile and had an idea. Its not much but i thought i'd share. I used mosquito netting, nylon and grosgrain, its about 10x4 and has one main compartment along with two smaller side pockets. Perfect for holding a flashlight in the right oriantation. Lemme know what ya think.

    Hey bluefields181, I like the design. Very similar design to a few I have done in the past. Really like that central pocket for the bigger items.

    Looks like a winner and a very useable design.
