If I am not mistaken, UW GEAR uses another no-grommet method for "$100" machines - when they attach the bottom of the pouch pocket to the back part they don't stitch the center area so there is a slot for water.

I'm familiar with UW Gear and how they leave a portion unstitiched for water in their gear, I had done it before in other projects. I also felt that you are taking the "$100 machine" thing out of context, if they preferred to spend the time finding a place to leave a hole without ruining the structural integrity than more power to them.

I dont like it too. Also the hole for water is too small, I bet it will escape the pouch much slower than from grommet.

If a grommet color (black and shiny scratched) is a main concern, some use simple black grommets and sewing PALS-like webbing loop on top of it. Loop is not flat so water can run easily. Also this loop can be used for hiding the end of side release buckle webbing
