Just saw this in a recent issue of National Geographic. Little blurb about the Peace Corps and it featured this bag, I gather what a volunteer in Ghana in the early sixties used to carry tinder and a fire starter in.
I had never seen this and thought it was very clever. Someone informed me that they had seen it on a sporran before, but every sporran I’ve ever seen had a different closure than this. I think I’m going to have to try something like this out on a pouch soon. But I’ll use some of these ITW Tac-Toggles, 550 Cord and MIL-W-43668 webbing instead.
