Since I have my Smart Alec I was thinking about the Upper Modular Pocket. I like the size and form of it so much. And the ideas developed in this threat from scribe: Extra tether sites inside the S19? got me thinking.
So I ordered an extra Modular Pocket and it turns out it can be a “stomach-bag”, a PLO (Purse Like Object) or something to put in another bag for organization.
What did I do?
1. Cut of the plastic attachments needed to hook it on the Smart Alec.
2. Cut two of the 1" triangular metal hook (from the parts list) the way ceepee did in the above mentioned threat (look post #12)
3. Thread those through the two most upper loops of the Modular Pocket to use for the shoulder strap from the Side Effect.
4. Use the next two loops when I want it to be a “stomach-bag” with the a removable Waist Strap from the Side Effect.
I am not sure where I will put the shoulder strap on the long term. I included two pictures: in one you can see the triangle of the hook peeking over the top in the other I used the second pair of threads so the attachment-point is invisible. Maybe you have thought on this?
I still love my Side Effects! I just like variations.
So here are the pictures:
Happy to here what you think about this.
