I'm building a good leg bag, because I really like this kind of model.
Purpose is to have a modular system, very strong, wheaterproof, with good load capacity in terms of weight and volume.
I thought of building a sturdy belt as first step ,made from double layer of 3mm raw leather, glued and sewn. 6mm thick should be nice to wear and strong enough to keep loads.
I'm thinking about 2 small belts for leg, one close to groin, and the second 15cm under.
Bag will be detachable according to the occurrence, +/- 25cm long, 20cm wide and 15cm deep, with dedicated pockets for wallet, phone, key - remote control, with zip and buckle, in order to avoid theft and losses.
I will also made a separated pocket for multitool and allen tools, maybe a sheath for a knife and a new holster for semi auto pistol.
Today I started pasting the two sides of belt, 5cm width, Tomorrow I will trace hole pattern.
I bought a couple of hollow punch bit to do the job, 1mm diameter, for sure the right tool! I mounted on bench drill, it's fast and accurate, with or without engine running.
I will sew as usual with double needle and waxed twine.
I was undecided on the buckle, I could build one, but it would take too long, so I decided to buy a good one, made in Italy, maybe made in zama , at least strong
