Horizontal Double Magazine MTP Pouches
« on: September 01, 2015, 01:05:50 PM »
Horizontal Double Magazine MTP Pouches

Adjustable Height Lids
Buckle and Velcro Closure
Elastic to prevent closest magazine from being loose when the other magazine has been removed.

I tried out the Crye method of sewing the pouch and it works rather well: the pouch body and backing are from one piece of fabric.

Looks good, I like the qsam instead of the typical female buckle.  Am I correct in assuming double layered using coyote on the inside layer?  Do you spray/bond them together?

Looks pretty solid.  Any chance you could show the pattern for the body of the pouch?  I can kind of visualize it, but that wrapping paper type fold is something that is puzzling me, but I am intrigued by it.

WPJ: I often use QSAM buckles for pouches, since they offer easier one handed closure (since the female side remains stationary, relative to the lid).  For my lids, I always sew them inside out, to avoid using binding tape (relatively less durable), even if it means that it takes longer to make.

TWT: I messed around with a paper pattern but I seem to have thrown it away.  It's basically the same as the normal T-style base, albeit with the folds on the sides, as opposed to on the bottom face.  You end up with a V shaped cut with the tip of the V along the right angle fold between the front face and bottom of the pouch.  I'll try to get another pattern made sometime soon.

Is that Multicam 4088 tape on the edge near the elastic holding the shock cord?  Source?

It's not Multicam 4088 tape.  It's a V type twill tape (British Mil Spec) in the pattern that is also used on the webbing in issue MTP equipment (issue kit uses a light olive twill binding).  For the pattern, see https://www.contactleft.co.uk/media/catalog/product/cache/1/image/500x500/9df78eab33525d08d6e5fb8d27136e95/e/l/elastic-roll-mtp-webbing.jpg

I'm looking to switch permanently over from 5038 to the V type twill since the latter is more durable.  In this case, I had to use 5038 for the sides of the pouch, since the sides were a bit too thick with elastic and many layers of cordura, to pass through my binder attachment.   Colourwise, the twill looks horrible when laid flat and on its own, but when you fold it in half to bind MC cordura, it actually looks pretty good, see below for Boris' belts.
