DIY Fixup & More

I’ve become a big fan of fixing bags with zipper pulls attached using parachord (which you can get from most army surplus stores) and chord ends.  County Comm makes these, which I’ve been using for a while to put zipper pulls on bags and things (even a swiss army knife of mine) but you may notice that they now sell glow in the dark chord ends.  These are very interesting to me.  I use the “international orange” chord ends because they are highly visible even in the dark, but these, you can’t beat.

While you’re there, check out their pens and their bags.  All mil-spec.  All good.  These things won’t die no matter how much you beat them up, and I especially like that all their pens are Fischer Space Pens, but better designed than the official Space Pen.  One thing you may notice about the pens is that the caps don’t go on the back of the pen.  That’s good.  That means when someone asks to borrow your pen, you keep the cap and get the pen back.
