Stock Class Pants

I finally got around to finishing these up since I didn't have a great way to carry tubes onto the field. I don't like stock class packs because I simply don't like fiddling with these teeny tubes behind my back. Wrist harnesses, drop legs, etc, I can't stand them because they are uncomfortable, inaccessible, or expensive.

I chopped up my shotgun belt into strips of 5 loops. I sewed the strip to the thigh of my paintball pants. Perfectly placed to fit my legs, not heavy, easy to reach, holds 10 tubes which is more than enough. I'm sure someone else has done this before but I figured I'd share anyway.






Total Cost- $4.99 and 30 minutes of my time.

I made similar project once, but for tpx clips. It worked ok-ish, but got a bit too bouncy.

I think that those will work much better cause the tubes are lighter, and your pants donīt look as loose as mine (I used dye paintball pants).

Yep, I can't stand modern pants because they are so loose. These pants are pretty baggy but they don't bounce around.

Great idea. I will definitely give this a try on my old cammie pants.

I did something similar to my DBDs, and I haven't used anything else to hold tubes since.
