Have a little time to sew, and even lost access to source ob better-looking photos. So – drawings.
Some gear is better placed not straight but with angle. For example, radios in order not to poke a user’s eye. Or some belongings placed in the way to use them really high speed (and maybe low drag) – hmmm, smoke pouch placed angled upside down ninja-operator style on the side of a pack thus conserving space on the load-bearing equipment.
I cant remember similiar solution from any manufacturer, but I believe somebody (DownRange Gear?) made 90 degrees angle adapter.
Green stripes are modular attachment, PALs.
Pouch contour is red. It is intended to be rectangular, cough, cough.
Attachment clips are shown with blue color.
Drawbacks are awful:
– terrible waste of place on PALs grid of your LBE
– bulkiness and weight, though, some pouches can be manufactured already angled, without using an adapter.
