    Silence the critics - going beyond the zippers

    After snipping the zippers off my Cadet things improved, but I wanted even less.
    So...I removed the snap ends for the Absolute shoulder strap and put the strap directly through the Delrin triangles. Lighter, much more stealth.

    You'd better get rid of those plastic ends if you're going for maximum stealth Silence the critics - going beyond the zippers

    @franzdom, this is a terrific idea! I’d like to use this idea on my Parental Unit! I’d prefer a non-Absolute strap, any ideas for a strap with the same ends as the Absolute strap?

    Thank you for sharing!
