Thread: Only Sports Bras Offer More Support

    Only Sports Bras Offer More Support

    Take some 2mm leather, matching thread plus a few tools and you too may enjoy the freedom that is a non shoulder slipping in-the-field rifle:




    The most challenging element is getting the correct fixing position & orientation*prior to stitching in place as such will only be realised with your chosen jacket on and rifle at shoulder as you intend to carry. Therefore you'll need help from someone with patience and the ability to temporarily secure in place prior to gluing. (*Note: Its important that when rifle sits at the point of the shoulder you want it to you ensure the stacked leather tab is square to sling edge in accordance with how it wants to orientate itself.)


    Sadly the stitching is an absolute pain even if you're familiar with saddle stitch and this install took me some 3hrs - the need to keep coat lining from shifting prior to each awl mark accounting for half of this!

    You could of course attach c/o 4 or 6 point riveting but K doesn’t do simples.

    Not quite sure of what I'm seeing.

    Have you stitched the sling to the coat?

    Any chance of a picture of the item in use?

    "Not quite sure of what I'm seeing." It's a stop that prevents the sling sliiping off the shoulder. S'obvious, innit!

    Good idea, but not so great on a waterproof coat

    No. I was simply attempting to show the importance of the tab being square to rifle sling when hanging under tension from the shoulder.

    Assuming the underside is of a receptive material you could cover the entire stitched area with a large rubber patch using the glue in a puncture repair kit. The glue you use to position leather tab will also go someway to seal awl penetration as each stitch is closed. In short more rain will get in through a collar than one of these.

    Good idea (camo coats) came out with this a long time ago but it is a stud button like you get on 501 jeans this looks better as it should't turn over like there's and dig in when carrying a day sack

    Your probably right, but with modern drop liners there is no need to sew right through, just to the outer material.

    That's a really good idea. I'm going to try it, thanks.
