Re: Boromir bag build

It's about as close to canon as you can get without being screen used. It makes a lot of sense, but Boromir already had so much to carry, I get why they scrapped it.

Re: Boromir bag build

I finished up the bag today. Me and my client opted for the half tool roll, half portmanteau/pouch. For the closure I did two straps with D rings at each end that were riveted in one spot on the bag right underneath the decorative leaf/feather/things. The shoulder strap is a single strap that you th...

Re: Boromir bag build

Yeah, nobody at weta that I've been able to contact has any memory of it. I did come across a scene from the special features where Peter Jackson is on the phone and says something along the lines of "get rid of boromirs bag, I don't like it." The idea I have in my head is something like a...

Re: Boromir bag build

Opening it seems a little awkward. It looks like you'd have to take it off your shoulder, lay it down, slide the straps over the sides and then unroll, unless I'm not seeing something. :?: It looks like it loops around and through some D rings so it cinches closed as you carry it. I need to play ar...

Re: Boromir bag build

It could be a blanket cover, but the label says "boromir bag" so maybe not. My standard style knife roll is the basic guideline we're going with for the inside. https://i.imgur.com/oxHxneA.jpg I could definitely do something more functional, but keeping the outside screen accurate is the b...

Re: Boromir bag build

Not sure if it’s just me but looking at the ends it appears to be stitched and constructed in a style similar to a portmanteau. If you zoom in close you can see the stitching. I maybe imagining it or it could just be folded and stitched to make a clean border. A soft bodied portmanteaus could be an...

Boromir bag build

Recently a customer commissioned a replica of boromirs shoulder bag/tool roll. It was scrapped before productions so this seems to be the only known photo of it. https://i.imgur.com/N86qOoM.jpg The outside and strap setup seems straight forward enough. My issue is the inside. I'm thinking of doing i...

I personally think the berserkr is as dwarven as a sword can get.

It works pretty well, it's just a loop that goes around the button, so gravity does most of the work.

Re: Ranger Shoulder Bag

Suede should work pretty well for you, especially if you treat it. I made a suede bag like mine for a friend who's a canoe guide and it gets splashed all the time with no ill effect. Suede has a bad reputation, but that's either from people with low quality suede or people who throw a fit when their...

Re: Ranger Shoulder Bag

I love love love this bag! Looks excellent! How is the suede for water resistance? I have never really worked with it but I have some to use in a belt pouch I will be making. Thanks! From my experience, suede keeps out water about as well as untreated canvas, if a little bit better. I'm debating tr...

Re: Ranger Shoulder Bag

The way the buckle works is interesting - I've been meaning to play with that concept at some point, but alas... no time soon. :) I used a conway buckle for the first time a few months ago, and I love them. Every purse I made for family members during the holidays came with one for the strap. They'...

Ranger Shoulder Bag

A few months ago when Manveruon was uploading his pictures of the layers of ranger gear he got me thinking about a dunedain satchel, which makes a lot of sense from a practical standpoint. You can't fit everything your're going to need into a belt pouch, and you might need to access stuff faster tha...
