    That' s so easy. I was doing exactly the same you do but without the clamps... Stupid me!!! I will use your technique from now on.

    <span class="postbody"><br>Hey,<br>I used paracord to tie my pouch at the very begining but my bands were breaking at that point everytime. Is it a method for using paracord? Now i use latex strips and i don' t have that problem anymore. I am just curious, just want to know what i did wrong..</span>

    its seem like you can put anything together with latex strips !!!! this is a great idea!!!!
     
  9. Will the bands last longer attaching them with bands of latex or with the "clamp" type attachment.
