    The original add for this bag is here ->shoulder-bag-wax-canvas-and-leather.227522
    @Peto Is a great guy to deal with and provides a top notch product.

    I bought this bushcrafty bag for a not so bushcrafty purpose. I got a new automotive diagnostic system and needed transportation for it. After some helpful exchanges with @Peto I figured this sack to be the perfect size. My old system I carried in a briefcase and I always felt it was a little too eye catchy. This also fits right in with the bushcraft bags I use.

    As you can see it everything fits in with just a tad of room to spare.

    With my laptop in it together it all weighs about 12 lbs. It was tending to push the front of the bag out so I needed to put some sort of attachment in it to keep everything snug. I had this stuff on hand so decided to put it to use.

    I sawed the ring to the front of the bag and the clip to the back.

    Here's the finished product. Worked like a champ.

    The other concern was the shoulder strap. First is that I was worried about ruining the nice one provided. I won't "carry" this bag much but it will be dragged in and out of my vehicle everyday and sometimes several times a day. I have some bridle leather I've collected and be damned if it didn't fit perfectly.

    The 2 straps side by side.

    Here is the finished bag full, Including my Mac that goes along for a ride from time to time.

    Here she is cinched up and ready for action.

    I've been carrying it 2 weeks now and I love it. Seems very well put together and with the inside storage set up it works for this purpose perfectly. If you need tough useful gear, give Ground Gear a look.

    That's some really beautiful gear, and your mods blend in perfectly.
    The high caliber gear makes me curious as to what the vehicle is? My mind is leaning towards vintage Range Rover...
