PCB, Pack Complementary Board – concept, prototype, thoughts

Had a boatload of things to take care of. Showing some beta-version.

 

Widely known pack inserts, or organisational boards, have variuous features, so I want to make one to be suited to my specific needs.

I want to have a possibilities:

  • hold A4 papers in the flat pocket
  • attach modular pouches to the front PALs
  • put rigid insert
  • (later) have a compatibility with Tom Bihn “Rails” system, Matroskya and TAD attachments

Here is a prototype made from (s)crap materials, as clothing fabrics. So, it has terrible sagging on the top of open pocket due to the weight of pouch with thermos.

My plan is to make V-shaped entrance to flat pocket in the next prototype, so pocket wouldn’t sag.

Developing some methods to carry your belongings convenient and compact, you can not miss the concept of pocket organizers. They are numerous, but they still make the pocket saggу and bulging. Here is a concept of slender organiser – just with a metal clip (o, and some sort of chain or string between clip and insert-organizer) what attaches it to a pants’ belt:

Insert to not drop into pocket’s bottom, and is hanging adjacently. Organizer used can be of any kind, clamshell or panel.
