Looks great.  I just ordered some 550 paracord to make my girth belt.   How did you do the weave? Especially at both buckle ends?  The ends are what I'm most unsure about.
Also who did the holster rig?  I'm after something similar for the RSKF-44.

Thanks Vod!
The girth belt is just a warp and weft design.



I just screwed down the buckles on the wooden board, tied with a knot one end of the paracord and then made the horizontal part. Once I was done, I started the vertical part, passing up and down on every string.



Easier done than said. Hope I was able to explain myself.

Also who did the holster rig?  I'm after something similar for the RSKF-44.

I did it myself (my first leather work), but now I replaced the white sintra buckle with a proper metal imperial buckle. If I can help, let me know.

I was going to do the same thing,  just wider spacing on the shorter sides (i saw it posted somewhere else as a Navajo weave).

So, wasn't entirely happy with my vest and I decided for another solution. So I copied took inspiration from trashcanmando's tutorial, but in a much simpler way (not that good at sewing). Heavy inspiration from Cal Kestis.
I found this wonderful pull up leather



thought that it would save me years of weathering and decided to make the vest.




The final result.
