Adding PALS Webbing to Daypack
Added Mar 28, 2013
Added a 2(w)x3(h) section of PALS webbing onto my daypack. Mil-Spec 1" webbing is 0.060" thick, and this was 0.030" thick so I sewed two layers of the webbing together. A single layer of the 0.030" webbing was rather floppy, but when doubled up and stitched together it was flexible but firm. It won’t be as strong as a single layer of mil-spec webbing, but I expect my pack fabric will give out before the webbing does.
I salvaged a length of 1" webbing from a broken ratchet strap. Orange wasn’t my first choice in color, but hey, this was only a test.
