    I've just finished sewing molle webbing on my Highlander medium haversack. Did it from scratch, meaning 1st molle attempt and 1st hand sewing attempt in general as well. No straight, smooth lines, but I believe it will do its job. It is certainly very sturdy.

    nice for a 1st attempt AND being hand-sewn.

    I've added MOLLE panels to rucks/haversacks before but I made a flat panel with the MOLLE sewn to it and then sewed that panel to the bag with a machine.

    Good job. Nice way to make it how you want it.

    Thanks! This is the beauty of modifying. It takes hours, but you get to create something that feels personal.

    Of course, with a sewing machine it takes significantly less time. Perhaps in the future I will acquire one.
