Flexible DIY trouser-belt for activity/DofE expeds

You just know you’ve got dozens of these straps spare, in the bottom of your wardrobe, doing nothing. And under-used ‘toy’ caribiners…combine the two, and hey presto, you have a useful belt that fits, and is easily adjusted.

nb do not use this for rappelling/abseiling…it’s just for keeping your trousers up, or maybe an empty mug handy.

Can also be used as an external over-jacket equipment carry-belt, or as a bergan-attached utility strap.



Alternatively, you could use something designed for the task, ie, a belt!

Just have a look in the stores for a Strap, Utility IRR.

Job done!
