I sewed up a couple rear bags from an old duty uniform. For one bag I used walnut tumbling media and the other is airsoft BBs. They work really well. Dependent on what part you cut, you can get a pocket which is nice for a data card or dope records. 71113587111359

How heavy are they pal? I'm specially interested in the weight difference due to different media. They look awesome, btw!

Thanks you, I appreciate it! I will see if I can get a scale that'll read the weight. One doesn't go that low and the other doesn't go that high haha.

Those are pretty sweet. I like repurposing stuff. Wish I would have paid more attention in home economics.

Way back when I used to make woodland camo covers for the original black Camelback. I see the large pockets to put on them. I'll have to dig one out.

I never thought of airsoft bb's to fill with.

I like using a sock filled with the airsoft bbs. It isn't very big, but easily adjustable for quick on the fly type shooting. (Use a clean sock, it will smell better)

Back in the day I ran the trusty sock and rice combo! Haha
