The opening in the strap has been cut out, using a new scalpelblade, after which I used two rows of blanketstitches to keep the threads in place. As a finishing touch I used superglue to cement the threads to the fabric, creating a stiff edge, which makes handling a lot easier. The loop is a part of the smaller strap, stitched round and fastened to the bagfront.
Like I previously said The wastebelt got caught up in stuff on my belt, including the knife. So I figured out a way to get around that problem. My solution? Adding loops to the front of the bag onto which I can clip my Mora. The straps are, again, leftovers from the webbingstraps and are therefor thick and sturdy. Ideal for holding knife and sheath! The top loop actually is double looped. There is a small loop at the back.
An extra feature is the wide beltloop at the back. The webbing strap extends all the way down, giving me the oppotunity to include this loop. This way I can use it to hang it from an older standard (Dutch) NATO webbingbelt, which makes it easier to add more stuff should I need it. Adding an extra canteen, pouches and such makes for a nice modular system. I can also take gear from the Finnbag, such as my FAK, my compaspouch, firesteelpouch, camerapouch, reducing the contents from the bag by another 50%, leaving more room for food and anything else I think I need.
