    Definitely feels better than just the webbing. I want to do another wrap on top of it to add a little more padding and thickness to it though but will wait until I get the other paracord.

    Sorry forgot how much we are all into bags here. It's bad when I am walking/driving downtown or in a public place and I'm looking at everyone's bags to check out the designs.

    Chris,

    I added a black paracord handle just like yours after reading Ilkyway's post. It looks nice on the all-black cordura S19, and is definitely a lot more comfortable than the original thin webbing handle.

    I'm in a dilemma now about whether to leave the entire bag all-black, or to add some color paracord pulls, or to change out the handle for one with color. But I kind of like how the black blends in with the rest of the bag, and looks like an original part of it.

    @chrisc983 Wondering if you did this? I'm looking into doing the same with my S25 grab handle, but trying to see if I should do a double cobra stitch instead of just a single (if it's that much more comfortable with the double stitch padding), and how to do it with 2 colors like seen in @Ilkyway's pictures here in this thread.
