Made a MOLLE pouch in classic Woodland camo for the 6.5 Grendel 20rd magazines from Duramag. This is a simple box pouch ideal for a belt kit, or magazine container.
This was a test of my newly acquired #1 Zig Zag cam for the Singer 328K; a pair of skeletal MOLLE panels attached to an USMC Bandolier to turn it into a simple chest rig without additional Cordura fabric. I also made a custom H style shoulder strap/cross strap harness with new Coyote Tan buckles
Shown without pouches, with my retro 6.5 Grendel pistol project

Well, I hope y’all enjoyed this update!
I made this to replace the standard flap on the Bianchi M12 holster; since the original elastic is getting a bit worn.

Made a companion pouch for the RG 1×2 kangaroo pouch, with a Field dressing pocket on the flap.
Views of both pouches loaded, and of their differing backs
Field dressing/utility pocket details, the loop at the top is for paracord to be tied for use with compass pouch or other items, the other loop is the ejector /elevator strap which aids in retrieving the field dressing or other items.
With small pocket emptied showing how the flap reduces profile
Attached to a MOLLE LBV panel; showing how the Paraclete/AWS inc/Blackwater style soft straps are woven and folded into the MOLLE slots.
Made this for a client. He wanted one M4 and 2 M9 mags in one pouch, with MOLLE and in 500D Ranger Green.
Showing basic construction and sizing
With single M4 mag inserted
With all mags inserted
Details of the back mounting method, and how its attached to a MOLLE panel. Also a shot with flap covering all 3 magazines.
Made a panel loading pack bag and shoulder straps for the Coleman frames out of Taiwan sourced 420D Nylon woodland camo fabric. It has about 1900 cubic inches from what I can remember, and has nearly minimal MOLLE webbing.
With gear loaded in it. The outdoor shots have USGI MOLLE II suspension while the inside shot has the shoulder straps I made
Side, MOLLE II suspension and bottom views
Views of the custom straps I made, using old USGI MOLLE II QD buckles, metal tribars. Single layer camo fabric, with spacer mesh bottom layer and closed cell foam inside the two layers. Not totally happy with how the straps and padding came out.
Details of the frame attachments for the straps using metal tribar buckles.
Made this to fit very old size 2XL Safariland S3A Level 3A soft armor and 10×12 Level 3 “ICW(In Conjunction With )” ceramic plates, for my personal use.

Yours truly modeling the carrier. It is heavy with everything loaded, but it is quite comfortable
I recently acquired 3x USMC Coyote Brown sustainment Pouches for real good prices before they ran out of them; and proceeded to set up my coyote self-made backpacks with them;
Here they are, all 3 on the 2,000CI MOLLE Mini FILBE with FILBE suspension and frame; it resembles a modernized ALICE pack with much larger pouches
And with two pouches, mounted high like the standard MOLLE rucksacks, on the same pack; with the horizontal compress straps running over them
Then on the 1700CI Low profile MOLLE ALICE pack without frame, only could fit two pouches, and the set up looks much like a modernized ARVN rucksack; the lid straps runs behind the pouches, due to the space afforded by the Sustainment Pouches’ MOLLE mounting system.
Made a set of 6 belt pouches for the metal FAL 20rd magazines for a client. They hold 2 magazines with a sewn divider in each pouch. Client requested buckles and no velcro
