    Sounds similar to my week in NYC last month. Held up great. Very comfortable. Was able to do everything I asked of it.

    As for the "mule", as the father of 4 kids, I feel your pain... ;)

    New zipper pull for the pocket organizer...

    Quintuple overhand...

    It's just big enough to be useful without being bulky.

    Will convert all the pulls on my Moab10 soon.

    Don't know why this one isn't used more often for zipper pulls?

    I just replaced the pulls on my pocket organizer with orange para. Used a snake knot (2 turns) but I like the looks of this better. Pretty simple to tie?

    No. :frantic:

    Triple overhand, no problem...

    Quad, frustrating...

    Five I just did to prove it could be done...

    It has to be guided to come together correctly or else you get the nice coil effect with one strand running the length of the knot.

    Trick is to guide the inner most loop over the others as you're pulling it tight.

    Kinda slow today so if I get time I'll try to post a guide as I couldn't find one that worked for me.

    That pic on page one of the Nano with the diamond knot has triples on the end of it for reference.

    I guess now that I think about it, the 5-overhand knot was easier than this 2 strand diamond knot... that one took me every bit of an hour!!!

    Ha ha! Thanks for the info and the pic. I think I'll give the triple a try first and then work up from there - assuming I don't just ragequit first....:unsure:

    Pay attention to how the coils pull together when your doing a triple and the quad and 5 (just hate the word "quint" for some reason) will make more sense.

    Guess if there's enough interest in it I'll post pics of the Moab on the "what modifications have you made to your bag" thread when I get it done.

    New 5-overhand knot zipper pulls...

    Turned out better than I thought.

    Thanx...

    The 5 overhands were extremely frustrating at first...

    By the time I finished though I had it down pat.

    Now time to try a 6 or 7...

    I'm confident it can be done without going :frantic::frantic::frantic:

    I like the look of the overhand. Will be giving this a whirl this weekend.

    FWIW: Here's a vid of a triple...

    Pay attention to when the knot is pulled tight and the loops jump each other to make it look uniform...

    It's at 0:24 mark... just imagine this with two more loops; they have to be guided over each other.

    Love those pulls, wanna do some in orange. Did you gut the paracord for them or leave as is?
