Multi Tool Pouch
« on: August 29, 2015, 08:33:45 PM »
I made this today for my SOG PowerAssist Tool, and my first attempt at a pouch of this size so lots to improve upon and ill try and document those changes here.

Pouch has a removable Velcro flap for adjusting the height needed for your tool, PALS on the back for Malice Clips
Made with CADPAT TW, Camo green 483 webbing and thread, OD Velcro

Plans to improve upon
-shrink or eliminate the 5038 tape
-incorporate a belt mount option while keeping the PALS grid
-maybe add elastic for secondary retention.
-make a larger version which will have an internal pocket to home a bit set.
-on the flap use a wide piece of material so I can completely hide the raw edges
-find a place to put a Canadian flag on it lol
 

let me know what you think.

Looks like it will get the job done.  Good technique binding before putting the PALS webbing on.  I probably would have done that in the wrong order.

I've made similar pouches with the removable flap and velcro on the inside.  For my personal kit, I just make the flap the size I need it, because I know what the pouch is for and don't worry about the adjustment feature.

Thanks for sharing.

Thanks Chuck, it was kind of a long day so the binding got done first, so I probably would have put them under as well however I do link them folded and out on top of the binding now that I did it that way.

I would prefer to remove all of the binding and use inside seams but it was to late in the day to get to that.

So I think I found a method to remove all of the tape as well make it compatible with either PALS or a belt loop.

Let me know what you think of generation Two.

It uses the following parts
3x 1"x3" webbing for PALS
1x 2"x?" Webbing for the main body
1x 1.5"x? Webbing for the flap
1x 2"x5" loop
1x 1"x3" loop
2x 1"x1.5" hook
1x 6"x5" fabric

Pretty clever method for making it PALS or belt loop compatible.  I don't think I have seen that done before.  I will file that in the "I wish I had thought of that" drawer.

You should use velcro and pouch flap (made of webbing or fabric) with the same width (for multitool - 38 mm = 1 1/2 inches). This way you will have:

- More accurate look outside - less vertical stitches visible, so side vertical stitches of velcro are in same place where side stitches of fabric made flap.
- More accurate look inside - you will cover the flap fabric/webbing ends completely, right now this ends are visible.


 Also, if you are using one layer of fabric for pouch pocket, you should bend upper edge of fabric outside, not inside the pouch like you did here, and bend it two times under itself so you cover fabric edge. This way the thing you put inside the pouch have less chance of getting stuck (no obstacles on internal surface).

Also I recommend not to use this belt loop behind the PALS loops like you did on the latest pouch, its too big for popular belts (1 3/4 and 2 inches wide), the pouch will hang loosely. You are using MALICE clip that can attach your pouch to this belts perfectly.

Second pouch looks too deep for multitool. 3/4 - 1 inches should be outside for easy grip.

Side stitches should be closer to the pouch side edges.
