Make every pouch 4 (four) PALs wide a Matroskya pouch! Just make a simple adapter and install it on soft clip:
Concept picture in previous post seemed unclear, so I made a paper model of one-piece soft PALs clip.
As you can see, PALs configuration on the pouch (two-space-one-space-two) is rare to meet, but the idea easily suits the widely known config – two-space-two.
It (five inches long) is compatible with specific PALs setup on the pouch – two-space-two, commonly found on Maxped pouches and some other manufacturers. See illustration:
Though, the longer version (7 inches) will be compatible with another PALs stup on the pouch, never found on any pouch: two-space-one-space-two. I’ll make some for testing purposes in future.
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.
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.
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.
