    Plus you are cutting into the fabric and making a hole. This has to make it weaker. Kind of like how a solid wall is stronger than a wall with a window.


    BTW, happy 1K post to me. Man I need a new hobby.

    And when he sees something cool, his first thought will be, "Man, I gotta post that!"

    Agree with the others on grommets. Assuming all the high quality manufacturers test their gear, there's a reason they don't use grommets.

    Finally found a good use for grommets however. They make good string-holes for the drawstrings on stuff sacks. I don't even bother piercing the hole first, I just attach the grommet, then stab the hole with a knife, and voila.
