Famous or well-known or maybe recent first-person shooter video game “S.T.A.L.K.E.R.” presented us not only obsessive cosplayers with AK’s in tarpaulin outfits, but easy recognizable accessory – “stalker’s” belt bag.
Speaking about its origin – it is obviously leading from generic gasmask pouch with fastex closure. Now this design became independent and self-sufficient. Russian gearmaker SТЕРАN1983 even wondered if game company do not sell real copies of this bag for profit 🙂 I have an idea to go even further, hehe.
A line of bags sized in width by PALs. A certain number of PALs loops plus 1 centimeter to every side equals overall width of bag/pouch keeping dimensions ratio:
2 loops – XS size, 9.6 cm wide overall
3 loops – S, 13.4
4 loops – M, 17.2
5 loops – L, 21 (accommodates A4 paper documents non-folded already)
and so on.
