Slick MOLLE Cummerbund flap adapter, Multicam

Sewn up this prototype out of 330D Cordura Multicam; it is a slick (no MOLLE webbing on front panel) 3-magazine pouch that is also a Plate Carrier cummerbund flap; for users whose plate carriers do not have a C-bund flap system in place; such as the 1st gen Diamondback FAPC shown; Blackhawk! Industries STRIKE Light Weight PC; and so on. DSCF1615

Flap opened; 4″ hook and loop panels; I chose not to cover the entire inside of the flap with hook and loop, but the option is there if needed.

Closeup of top area, no bungee cords yet, I think the next project like this, would have a shorter magazine pocket so that the mags are easier to get at.

The side; unlike most systems in use, this requires the C-bund to go over the magazines, thus securing the mags and maintaining a lower profile than the other method of mag sleeves in front of C-bund flap. With elastic C-bund system, or the Skeletal C-bund, this should be more secure and lower profile.

Medical kit goes into insert, whatever does not fit goes into the bottom of Medium utility pouch, then the plastic insert box goes on top.  stakes, and fire starting kit with Esbit folding multifuel stove goes into other Medium utility pouch, some stakes would do double duty as canteen cup holder on the Esbit stove.

Left to Right; Poly-merino wool long john underpants, nylon long sleeve camo shirt, woodland BDU pants, wool socks, and extra underwear. The wool socks and the long johns are for when it gets colder, and I sleep in base layer in the sleeping bag, the other clothes are change for next day or two days on. Fleece pull over or COld Weather Parka with liner would be worn if colder weather, if not, then lash fleece pull over onto the bag, if dry weather is expected..if wet weather, parka or M65 jacket with fleece inside.

Basically this is an overnight system, and up to 3 days, if I pack extra socks and underwear as well.
