Patrol Jacket Modifications

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hey guys. I love my jacket and it has many nice features. The only thing missing is loops or rings on the outside of the jacket to add small items like a watch, temp guage, light, whistle, season pass, etc.

Patrollers are notorious for being very creative. Anyone have any creative ways to add these things to a jacket that doesn't have provisions for them?

Buy 1 or 2 1/2 inch D loops, a short length of 1/2 inch webbing straps, and 1 sewing kit. Cut the webbing into 2 inch lengths, put a D ring in the middle of it and sew it closed. You should end up with a D ring attached to a 1 inch tab of webbing. Sew this to your jacket. Voila!

I've sewed a small piece of red 1" webbing on the chest/shoulder area to be able to clip on a radio mic/speaker. Work great.

I sewed a piece of luggage strap material to the outside of my Patrol Jacket. We had to cut a small hole on the inside of my chest pocket to allow the mic chord to pass through to the outside. This allows me to wear a radio harness and keep the radio safe on the inside, and I don't have to open the jacket to use the mic in bad weather. It also keeps the mic in place vs clipping to the storm flap on the jacket.
