WRSI Hail Mary: repacking made easier

Got Hail Mary? Found it difficult to repack? Neverfear, the fix is here. Take some heavy-duty boot lace (e.g., for Red Wings), remove that mini-bungie string it came with, and re-lace it to your satisfaction with the boot lace so that it opens up wider and maybe faster. Also try working the bag a little to wear out the opening thus increasing the opening. Try it. You'll like it. Notice how it laces shut more tightly too. The problem is/was the bag packs so tight and the rope peaks/leaks out of the opening. The new lacing controls that leak. I had to replace the lace anyway 'cause that bungie stuff keep snagging on itself and I could barely get the bag open. It's positively my go-to bag now.
