I like this.  Is there a particular application for it?  Like keeping dust and rain off sensitive stuff?

As WTF said, what is the application? Don't get me wrong, I like the work and the outside the box thinking, but I wouldn't a traditional snow collar with flap be easier to get in and out of? I can see this if the pouch was waterproof and had a purge valve on the bottom. Like a dry bag, but attached to your rig.

The customer wanted such a pouch as a general utility pouch for his bergen.  The compression and capacity of this design may be slightly better than the traditional snow collar and flap.

I may be developing this concept further with a double roll top pouch, wait out.

Have anyone actually gotten snow inside of their pouches that have snow collars and full lids? Or a zipper and full lid?
I don't see the use, but if someone pays you then I guess it's alright.

I'm all for drybags, but then the drybag needs to be just that. But Litelok and Cordura aren't waterproof (Cordura has a few non-traditonal exceptions, don't believe MC is printed in any of them) to such a degree after a couple of minutes of actual outside use.

I agree that it's not going to be much more waterproof than a pouch with a snow collar and full lid.  I think the customer wanted adjustable and expandable capacity.

Then the pouch has no support for whatever item(s) that are taller (or in the expanded area) than the area with the attachment.
Here is my challenge for your continued development; Make a pouch that expands downwards in a controlled fashion. That's something I could absolutely see the use for on packs, as well as put into other types of pouches.
