    Thigh rigs - Remora, slipping

    I tried out my Remora thigh rig the last time I was out on a backpacking trip. It is their combo ankle/thigh system with the stretchy band. I couldn't keep the rig from falling. It would stay for a few minutes but when I would get up and move around it would immediately start to drop and I'd have to re-position it.

    Has anyone used this configuration and come up with a method for keeping it from falling? I don't wear a belt backpacking because it digs in too much with my waist belt on the pack cinched tight. I use a real small kernmantle rope (1/16"-3/32" or so) with a friction knot instead. That is what prompted the thigh rig, but I can't keep it in one spot. The other side of it is I don't like the pressure of the band = reduces circulation down my leg.

    Any ideas?

    There is a video by the girl who does a very comprehensive Remora holster video and other stuff. She goes by Falia Photography and you could probably look for her on YouTube. She did a thigh holster (custom rig) video I saw once and hers had a garter attached higher up If I remember correctly. It was a well done video (all of hers are...) and she seemed happy with her thigh rig. This might give you something to go with or at least a source for getting something made custom for you.

    Have you talked to Alan (or someone) at Remora about this problem? They might have suggestions/solution for you.

    Good luck.
