    I have a custom kydex OWB holster that I want to also be able to use in my Maxpedition bag. I was thinking of taking a big sheet of velcro and attaching it to the holster using the screws that retain the belt clips so as not to ruin the back of the holster with sticky stuff. Any thoughts or alternate ideas?

    Thanks!

    Might work. I'd be afraid of ripping the velcro material though.

    I've experimented with stick on Velcro. It seems to come off just fine.

    I've had the glue fail several times when I stuck that stuff to plastic. Using screws might work better, maybe with some large washers to better distribute the stress.

    I did just that using 3M Scotch Outdoor Mounting tape to secure the velcro.
