Really cool. Maybe not canon but it sort of puts me in mind of a Middle Earth version of a Roman pera bag. I could see the common Gondorian foot soldier carrying a plainer variant of this for field rations and the like.

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.

That is nice work! The stitching must have taken foreeeeevvver.
I especially like how you used the middle part of Shockbolt's Boromir tabard-clasp as button. It's *exactly* the kinf of thing WETA would have done. :mrgreen:

Is your client planning on using it, either out in the field or in cosplay or something? I'm curious to hear how it works!

Thanks! I had a few of the first ones he modeled that were too small around, so I figured it seemed like an appropriate choice.

He plans on using it for cosplay repair supplies as well as his wallet and keys etc. I wore it around for a few hours and it worked pretty well, but I told him to let me know how it does after 3 days at SDCC.
