    I made this today, I tried to make it using backbone but I cannot get my slip knots to stop slipping, so reverted back to the easy option.

    Its quite heavy as I used the reflective 550, which as I posted previously, seems much thicker than the non reflective cord.

    Any way it kept me out of mischief for a while. :D

    Thanks!!
    Four cobra bars, joined by the blue, folded in half and then threaded up the sides.

    There were a lot of ends to finish off, which I am still getting used to. I realised today that the threads can be melted and stuck down!! The reflective cord doesnt burn too easily though.

    The pouch is 7inches deep, made for a friends mobile (cell) phone, the pouch is quite heavy but will provide lots of protection...............

    i've found that as well on the reflective, that it doesn't burn/seal well, and that it really separates from the insides and outer shell during tying. leave yourself extra for finishing w reflective i've noticed.

    Took about 3hrs to make, the longest part was tidying the ends up!

    I think I will avoid reflective cord in future, unless its requested.
