Platforms / 10x3.1 chest rig with Typhon SAR12 mag pouches
« on: January 10, 2016, 06:45:30 PM »
10x3.1 chest rig has 4x3 on center with two 15 3x3s on either side.

Platforms / Asymmetrical Rhodesian Chest Rig
« on: October 01, 2015, 02:17:27 AM »
One of my newer chest rigs. I started making these to sell them to the day job (yeah, they buy gear from me just like any of their other suppliers).
Intended to be a lightweight rig, maybe kept in the trunk or next to the gun you grab when whatever happens. 6 mags, GP/IFAK pouch, pistol mag/multitool/flashlight pouch.
The rig is simple, padded, and all webbing. Being all webbing the center bar of the "H" also acts as a drag handle. The d-rings on the back provide some pivot for different shaped people. The neck facing edges of the rig are bound to not chafe. Shock cord & Tac Toggle webbing management that I've been using forever.

Also a MultiCam LiteLok version:

This one has 1000d Coyote as the inner layer on the mags so they hold their shape, the LiteLok is just too damn light.

I'm not sure of a short cut source, but I have been buying full rolls from Brookwoods out of California.
Send me a PM with your quantity (min 5 yards), I will only ship in the U.S. Since shipping out of Country is expensive and more paperwork on my end.

I'm trying to make a tutorial for an AR-15 mag pouch.  This is meant for people who know how to do a straight stitch on a sewing machine, but not much else.  This is part 1, and it's currently unlisted on my youtube channel.  I'm not thrilled with it, and am considering re-shooting it before I make part II.  I wanted to keep the whole thing under 10 minutes, but it looks like it will be at least 12 for both parts.  Part 1 is 7:10.

My questions are:
1.  Would it teach a beginner how to do this?
2.  Did it keep your attention?
3.  Is the production quality adequate?

As always, harsh criticism is appreciated.

Yeah it's a really strange business interaction.  I work for an established company that uses $10k + of hardware a year, surely they want the commission on that sale?  Bigger companies can just go direct to the manufacturer as they have the volume to not need a middleman.

Never thought this would be my first impression on this site, but here it goes... There is a backstory to this, a co-worker was having quite a day, she became totally tech ignorant over an issue with one of our platforms and proclaimed she was going Amish. she is outdoorsy so I came up with this to prolong the joke. She loves it.:


Pouches / AK-4 pouch
« on: July 02, 2015, 11:28:57 AM »
Designed for LRP groops of Airborne and SOF. Hold strongly 4 AK mags, or, without dividers, 5 AK mags, 100 rounds machine-gun belt for PKM (7,62-54R, but I mean, 7.62 NATO will work to)  Lid prevent mags from dirt  and dust. It is not pouch for city patrol or vehicle patrol, it is pouch for dirty war-)
 Very compact. Also has PALS for grenade pouches and dump pouche.
We work very hard on this pouche, it 4x or 5x generation..

Concept, design, and engineering / Re: Adding structure to gear
« on: June 17, 2015, 03:28:53 PM »
I believe TT uses vinyl coated polyester, AKA truck tarp.
I use 18oz for tarp construction and then use the remanents in my gear. Polyester doesn't have near the stretch as nylon so it works great as a backer for large Molle panels, it sews and bartacks great.
I normally place the smoother side out on my seat covers, the other side shows more of the weave similar to the mag pouch above.
The picture I provided is of gear that is in process, before it leaves, it will get the threads nipped and cleaned.

I have never dealt with JC tucker but you might try PK supply in Kent Washington, or John Howard company in Chino Ca, as they are both Duraflex distributors. I deal with PK supply for all of my Duraflex buckles, if I get my order in early in the morning, they will ship the same day. They also brought in some special buckles for me, but they did want me to purchase case quantities.

Pricing will be around $1.19 per yard to cover freight.  I will likely have around 3-4 rolls I will let go of as I have a custom project I bought this for.  I anticipate it will arrive around the end 9f the month. If people want more let me know and I can add it to my order. 

Platforms / A selection of Rigs

All MOLLE. All based on UK style belt and yoke system.

This one has a spacer and mesh under armour yoke.

An LMG Rig with over armour adjustable yoke. The ammunition pouches can take 5.56mm Minimi 200 round "bags" or two 100 round. 

A commanders rig. Normal infantry standard but the large zippered pouch on the right end is for TAMs, maps etc.

This is a wee bit of a test run to see if I remember how to post pictures. These are two pouches that I built today.

The pouches are double skinned 1000D Cordura with adjustable length (on internal velcro) flaps.
