    Pics?

    If you don't like the look of the hem, grosgrain or bias tape hides a lot of sins....

    I'll take one tonight. I've got some ribbon, but it wasn't wide enough for my big sausagey fingers to get anything good out of. I think it's about 3/4" wide...which, on that note, I've got two rolls of this stuff if anybody can put it to use.

    Sawyer?

    Hey Gresh,

    You know i have a few bags so when i was doing research for UQ/TQ and saw the prices for custom made gear and took a better look at my own gear i realized i had a bag (down bag) that I could part with.
    What i did was i took the bag to a local seamstress and for 35 dollars she removed the zipper, took off about seven inches as the bag was an Xlong, sewed a nice footbox and removed the hood and actually made me a hat out of the hood.
    She did this all for 35.00. All came out fantastic.
    So for 35.00 i got a great TQ that will serve me into the low teens.
    So if you can find a good score on gear why not convert and save some hard earned dollars.
    We all have extra gear just kicking around...no point in letting things go to waste right.
    Walker

    The whole shebang



    A miserable excuse for stitching, where once there was hood.
