Modifying gear is a terrific way to spend an afternoon (or several!), and it allows for a person to tailor their mass produced gear specifically to them. It lets them get a custom feel and performance to their kit without the custom price tag. Some of the most common modifications are fairly simple, and include things like sewing extra webbing to packs, stripping extra webbing off, or sharpening a tool differently than it came from the factory. Further modifications can easily become more involved, requiring more time, tools, and skills. It’s always great fun though, and the rewards are terrific.
