    More Paracord for the Brain Bag!

    I put some custom paracord pulls on my brain bag and love it so far. The zipper pull ends actually glow in the dark. I also put little belt loops on the water bottle compartment area to control the straps when nothing is in it.

    Sorry for the poor iPhone pics!

    how did you add the belt loops? i have been wanting to do this for the synapse and smart alec. it really annoys me the extra dangling straps..and I have no idea why TB won't have simple belt loops. I have asked for it before; and it seems like the kind of detail that TB would not miss. It makes it so much cleaner; and easier to also tuck under seats without straps sticking out all the over the place. Darcy: can you tell us why the resistance to belt loops?!!

    I just wrapped a piece of paracord around the strap, cut it, removed the inner strands, and finally burnt/melted the ends together. Then I simply put the paracord belt loop on to the strap. I considered doing it in a different color but wanted it to blend in.
