Make every pouch 4 (four) PALs wide a Matroskya pouch! Just make a simple adapter and install it on soft clip:
Personal armor today become a subject of an intense hype. Speaking about coverage, let’s keep in mind mobility. Especially, pelvic area is a challenge to designer. Continue reading
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.
Currently doing nothing but playing around some weird deviant concepts of loadouts.
To make and old-school ammunition belt with modern modular pieces of gear.
Single vulnerable D-ring can be replaced with adapter as Maxped D-pouch, but it increases overall cost of solution. Would be better to replace it with paracord loop or two.
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.
I modified previous concept of shotgun ammo pouch a little and moved to more traditional design with horizontally oriented tray and vertically oriented shells. Prototype with vertical tray and horizontal shells was less protected from weather and dirt, than I prefer.
Now the outer pouch is solid box structure with foldable lid and velcro on frontal surface. Note: pouch fastener is not installed yet, and new pouch is NOT fastened with velcro (frontal side of lid and frontal wall of pouch are not sticked together) due to the noise discipline reasons.
Concept of flat IFAK by SO Tech is great, but I want to add one more cherry on the cake.
Work is not finished, no snapbutton, no tray, but the main point is obvious.
