    Now he is a ‘seer’. :D

    Forgot to mention, that orange handled tool in the pic is one of a set of four bent picks from Harbor Freight. VERY handy for lots of things. I used this one to fish the threads out between the layers to knot them.

    Made a quick carry strap for the ruck with some of the original canvas strap that came with the ruck and a couple copper rivets. I glued the double over section together to prevent fraying and add some strength.

    It came out pretty taught and low profile, but that is just fine by me as this is a light duty bag that will live in my truck for short, spur of the moment type trips (hour or two at most).

    Also @NevadaBlue sent me his handiwork. Gotta say it looks great and really pulls the bag together!

    Really hoping to do the final waxing this weekend!

    Those shoulder straps transform the whole thing. To say that I like that ruck is a massive understatement.

    I concur. I'm not really sure which of the two rucks I have modded I like the best.

    Nope, can't choose. They are both great.
