    True. You should see the duct tape inside my vest holding my speakers and my LED battery pack.

    Hmm, although im just gonna use the safety pins for now,im curious to see what you did Esch. i loved your idea for the belt pouches to attach to the belt,and used it myself, but used snaps instead of rivets, but a great idea...so im curious if u have pics of the wookie scalp attachment method you mentioned

    There is that BobaWedie or something guy here that I copied on it. He had some up close studio pics.

    It's super simple...buy a cheap small grommet kit with tool at Joanns or any craft/sewing store. Put two grommets about an inch or so apart just over the back of the peak of your right shoulder and two the same way just over the front of the peak of your right shoulder... so now the spacing b/w the front set and back set is about 2-3 inches apart.

    Then lay the braids down and run one thin zip tie from under your vest, through the grommet, out, through the braids, back in the next hole and fasten...repeat for the back.

    I'll take pics tonight to show you if I can...
