Non-standard wide PALs

Sometimes I see modular platforms which include PALs loops wider than standard. It’s obviously GoRuck (1.9-2″ wide) and discontinued BOGear products (no info).

I’ve always wondered if it is rational in terms of convenience. One day I tried to figure the most versatile PALs loop width with aim to attach any pouches centered – with even and odd number of loops on them.

Surprisingly, the needed width is 2,625″ – 1,75 times wide than standard 1,5″ wide PALs loop.

VAC, versatile attachment cell

VAC, versatile attachment cell

The necessity for a method to attach standard buckles for a PALs platform is obvious to me. So I’ve played with an idea to combine G-hook and T-shape adapter in one accessory unit.

Sorry for crappy pics, as usual.

Simply put, it is a wrapper around PALs loop, which is fastened with DTMF closure.

Single one PALs row attachment – for tiny pouches

In the search of reliable tough attachment, i came to the idea of two “clips” – external sleeve made from 3 cm width strap, and internal strap 2-2,5 cm width. Look at the sketch:

Two clips connection can be reinforced with velcro and/or snapbutton. Though, the process of installation/deinstallation will be hard, velcro must be covered with paper or cardboard strip before the inserting, and disassembled with cardboard strip before the deinstalling.

Belt pouch to PALs surface attachment adapter

Few weeks i played with an idea of a method of connecting a heritage legacy belt pouches (including holsters) to modern modular equipment. And yesterday, oh gods, i saw a post on JTT about Jimmy Tarp’s PALS Adapter. Freaking late, but here’s mine version:

Pouch is installed, and side PALS are folded down, then the whole structure is connected to rig (pack) with separate rigid clips.

Update

Oh, nearly forgot. Belt section height (i.e. belt width) can be 38-55 mm.

Update 2 (10 April)

Modular surface is preferable to be continuous line-by-line, MALICE type, with no gaps between the straps. Luckily, this feature is frequently found on modular belts.
