Reg, Just saw your posting and am still relatively new to this forum. I hope you are enjoying the pouch I manufactored. Since this forum seems to be the place where guys really examine gear and the nitty-gritty details of their construction, I should probably make a small confesssion. The zippred pouches I have manfactrued and sold to individuals and Stan Wolcott have one intentional flaw built into them in order to positively distiguish them from an orginal artifact. Funny though, I am a bit surpised that it has not been identified here yet.......

Spoiler Alert....The five original zippred compass pouches I examined while doing pattern work for my replica pouches all had nickle plated (silver) zippers and pulls. Mine are brass/gold. If you find a zippered pouch with silver metal components it most likely will be an original. I do my best to make this and all of my other products as authentic as possible, I hope however, that nobody has been scammed with them.

Peace

Ray
