This bag took... a while to make.
Sadly I had a bit of a false start, as I unwisely started with some titanium I had on hand...
but when I ordered more to continue the new links were a different size (and were actually matching the listed size now).
Anyway, this is done with 20ga 7/64" brass links, with an AR of 3.5 .
With hoodoo hex weave an AR of 3 is considered "optimal" -- if stiff -- but larger AR's can be used.
The extra 0.5 to the AR gives the weave a nice flexible/flowing feel.
This also means the bag has a noticeable amount of stretch in all directions, but when full mostly has a balance.
I really like how the seam between the two halves is... seamless XD, aside from the three corners.
According to my link math (assisted by my digital mock up), there are 3554 links.
The closure of this bag was first for me, in that I did a wrap over to form a loop of the weave.
It took some rework to get it right...
Each closure is secured by five links.
While working on this bag I came up with a theory on bag closure ratio.
Based on some of my previous bags, and the math I did on this bag, I thing that a 4:1 ratio of links (for every four links in the body, use one link at the tip of the closure) leads to a decent close.
