    My Baldric

    After many weeks of research and thought I made this baldric.
    The shoulder strap is is made in 3 sections. The middle section is a 5 strand plait for grip the other 2 are 1 inch wide.
    Buckles allow for adjustment depending on what I'm wearing.
    The intention is to modify it into a multi function item.



    It is designed to carry 2 items in a secure fashion using Sam Browne Studs with a 10mm head.
    I intend to make a pouch which will hang off the shoulder strap at the bottom across the machete and hatchet using the same studs.(work in progress)
    I also want to mount a knife on the front strap which will be easily removable and be belt or neck mounted.
    Comments/ideas welcome

    Looks great, very handy for keeping your blade warm between layers in cold weather .

    I have been looking into the whole baldric/wookie belt and a couple of other systems and doing a multi carry option for my knife and water bottle and other kit so far I have 4 basic ideas. I have a multicarry Lucky Lee sheaths which i would like to use as the knife base part the other part is the sticking point at the minute but as I said I have a few ideas.

    I do like your idea of using the sam browns and putting a pouch with it. I was looking at a thinking of having a thicker band with then thinner strap which buckles in to hold a normal pouch, a cross between a belt and a molle system so that I could use different type of pouches some custom or some normal ones.

    I have looked at many and I think the way I have configured the buckle adjustment gives me more mounting options.
    But trial and error is the only way to find out from here on.
