Pouches / Double 762 Pouch
« on: April 08, 2017, 06:39:26 PM »
After many dimensional changes, this is the final product. We profiled the top edge of the mag cup so there could be maximum Velcro engagement, while still giving the user a solid grip of the magazine. This "built in" method is less floppy than the typical webbing extension. We also sized it for Magpul Pmags, as they seemed to be the most popular and beefiest mag. The HK417 requires a larger pouch still.

What do you guys think?

Packs and bags / MAP for the Danish TYR PICO

Finished with a MAP for our bodyarmor from Tyr Tactical. Need to make some adjustments but so fare I like how it turned out.

Packs and bags / First shot at an assault pack

SR Tactical's pack motivated me to try one of my own.

Pack turned out ok, but it was a great learning experience.  As always, thanks to everyone for sharing your thoughts and ideas.

Looks good.  I've sold a couple similar to that.  They were 8 columns by 3 rows like yours, but I have been using 1.5 inch webbing sewn into the front and connected to a ladderlock at the sides with no waist strap.  The intent was to carry a load of 6 mags (3 double stacked pouches), and have room for a blow out pouch.

I have one sew up with a GP pouch, a waterbottle/camera lens pouch ,and one of my first aid blow out pouches and it's what I wear when I am hiking.

Personally, I'm not a huge fan of padded shoulder straps on chest rigs.  If I am wearing one, there is a good chance I am wearing a ruck or pack over it, and putting a padded strap under another padded strap doesn't feel good for me.

The one in the picture is just a double layer of cordura.  I just started experimenting with 3mm foam to add my rigs and give them some structure, and I believe it takes them to a whole new level.

Future generations of my small rig will probably feature cut off corners and a strap attachment system like yours along with a waist strap.

Everything else / Sling Prototype
« on: September 07, 2015, 11:25:48 AM »
This is another sling design that we've been testing over the past year and I think it's time to share. It's very simple but also very effective. It's the same collapsing loop design as our Accelerator Sling but with a different adjustment mechanism. Instead of using a single buckle this one uses two flat triglides, only one of with is actually sewn to the sling. The other simply "floats" on the lower webbing. It does not require any sort of pull tab; the user simply slides the buckles to the desire position. Like others on the market it uses friction created by weaving the webbing through the buckles, the difference is that because two buckles are used instead of one, they "loosen" and slide more freely when adjusted, making it very fast and smooth. The one in the picture uses all metal hardware, but the potential for using acetal is there too.

Platforms / PALS Panel
« on: August 31, 2015, 09:47:34 PM »
This is a custom product we've been developing. The one pictured here was made by request from one of our customers. The base panel is designed to plug into many aftermarket armour systems that feature vertical QASM buckles on the front. Most of these systems have loop Velcro as well, so we've added 4" x 8" Velcro Hook with a cover.

The panel can also be used as a stand-alone rig by adding the unique light weight harness. Unlike traditional chest rig harnesses, the shoulder straps attach directly to the waist strap. It is fully adjustable for height and girth and allows the user to control the ride height of the panel.

The office / Re: Your design fee is %@$#% per hour?!!!!!

I agree 100% with what mogensbeck has said. I'm building a brand, and for me, offering custom gear is a way to develop ideas/products that I would potentially be spending time doing anyway. For example, our Patrolling Rig was a custom request that has now been developed into a standard product, but dozens were sold as custom builds. Every time someone requested one, we used the opportunity to further improve the design.

As far as the price you charge for your work, I feel it's an entirely goal oriented decision. On one hand, if you charge more money ($100+/hour) you might get a few customers willing to pay that, but you definitely risk loosing a lot of business, just because that price scares people. On the other hand, if you charge less, you'll likely do more business and have more opportunities that you might not have otherwise been exposed to.

Packs and bags / Green Ant Deployment bag

Just registered and thought, I'd like to share a few pics of my latest project.

Packs and bags / My latest pack (FEB2015)
« on: March 09, 2015, 03:12:57 AM »
Dammit @lessa@dro, i though i would be the first one to post a pack in here >:( ;D

Anyway, hereīs my latest creation.. I ran out of clever names for my packs a while a ago, so i just call it FEB2015 pack, for the lack of a better name.

Itīs a 1DAP/EDC pack for my personal use. The shoulder straps are removable, so if needed it can be mounted on a back of a BA or LBV with quick release system.

I have made like 40 (or something) packs already, but what makes this project stand out from the other packs, is the technique i used for making the beavertail/cargo panel. I have never used the inside out method. I had my doubts about it, but now that i tried it, i like how it turned out. To go with the pack, i also made a couple of tall 2Pals wide GP pouches.

Packs and bags / Yote Style Pack.
« on: February 22, 2015, 11:56:25 AM »
This pack is styled after the Eagle Yote, TYR, and AWS offerings.  However it is customized per the end user's requirements.  This example is in Multicam and is for a member of an ERAD Team.  Specifically they wanted a beaver tail with the ability to loop plastic cuffs.  Hence the extra wide daisy chain along the outside. The pack is about three inches wider than the Yote and a couple of inches taller.  It is also about two inches deeper in the maid compartment with the beaver tail being three inches deeper. 

I made it completely slick with the ability to move and change pockets and pouches depending on task.

The arm straps are removable and it is attachable to a plate carrier or any other MOLLE type platform. 

The mesh pocket in back is large enough to stow a Team Wendy Exfil with NVG, a two man shelter, and/or spare munitions.  This party specifically does over watch on ERAD and has to hike to his position.  Additionally it will hold a Leuopold spotting scope or ammo can comfortably.  It is made to carry around 25 kg maximum. 

The interior is made to snug in a Source Hydration Bladder 3.0 L.  Using the triglide hanger method described in an earlier post by WTF.  The user did not want any extra pocket/separations in the internal compartment aside from the bladder compartment. 

The inside comfortably holds snivel gear and pogey bait, and is designed to be a 12-24 hour use pack without resupply.

I made a few in coyote for a riot control team in the South Western U.S.  and they can fit helmet with face shield, water, and a chemical decon kit inside the meshed area along with radio and duty belt (they use nylon duty gear for riot control and leather for day to day).  They also had a disposable restraint requirement and the ability to carry around 20 kg of gear prior to deployment. 

Platforms / Patrolling Rig (Split Front)
« on: November 28, 2014, 06:56:57 PM »
We've been working on developing a patrolling style rig for a more heavy load out than the smaller chest rig can carry. The rig pictured below is in PenCott Badlands and was made at the request of one of our customers. It is based on the design of our very first load bearing vests. Ultimately the harness will be redesigned into something a little different ;)

Here are the basic features that set our rig apart from others of the same style:

- ITW Hardware (Acetal, made North America)
- Padded Panels (Closed cell foam)
- Re-enforced stitching
- Individually sewn PALS (sewn through all layers for durability)
- No internal pockets to full with water
- 1.5" Triglide attachment points to minimize buckles
- Elastic loops for strap management
- 1.5" Ladderloc buckle for waist strap
- Relocated waist strap for even support
- Continuous harness straps for strength; All straps originate from the harness
- No buckles on the harness to reduce interference when using a ruck
- No mesh on the harness (collects moisture and debris)
- Vertical 1.5" channels on the shoulder pads for lashing point

The rig is designed to be worn low, around the waist but is also fully adjustable for height and girth. Total weight as pictured is 500g or 1.10lbs, making it quite light for it's size and the amount of equipment it can carry.

UPDATE: Below is the current version of the Patrolling Rig V2
