There are a bunch of options here: http://www.seattlefabrics.com/zippers.html#Separating_Water_Resistant



perfect! yeah, mostly just the slider type because the zip chains can be found here

thanks!

No problem man.  If you need any help with trims, etc... just post and call me out or whatever.  There are tons of resources, and especially stateside, where DIY culture is much stronger.

I prefer something like the huge ccp pockets for my use, means you can stuff all kinds of random shit in there which is more interesting than a myriad of maybe slightly too small pockets (gg vest pockets looked quite smaller though and it seems the new model has ditched them altogether). If you have to carry a notebook/tablet everyday and not much more I agree that the suspensor is the better option but it's pretty limited otherwise (the MP2TS pouches are pretty small, not sure they can hold most current phone models), of course part of the fun it's the modularity of the thing but bigger pouches can get annoying after a while. I still use the 'less advanced' suspensor model (with the big vertical sleeve config for that keyboard carry, can't remember the name) from time to time and if you happen to walk briskly all the dangling swaying pockets thing is not optimal. (And you definitely feel like a dork fiddling with it)

any idea what collection it's from ? interesting that he kept the repro holster detail (EG did/does one too without it iirc).



for anyone looking for something similar (but in olive drab twill and minus the lapels) around the $100 mark, plenty of vintage ww2 type C-1 emergency/sustenance vests floating around on ebay/etsy etc

i didn't go for it, the lapel + holster juxtaposition was too much for me. there's also no hole in the bottom, which makes for a bad holster because the material can fold and cause you to shoot yourself in the leg in case of "accidental" or really negligent discharge. or something like that. plus it wouldn't fit my ray gun anyway...

more along the lines of the ann scarf-sack thing, but wooly knit instead:



but the ribbing and color are pretty ugly

I am into that backpack too. Love the big asymmetric, two-way zip on the main compartment.

You can tell from the pics alone that these pieces are extremely well thought out. Those pants that suspension point carries are amazing!
