Redball Magazine plate carrier and pouches

I Modified my black horizontal Redball 20rd magazine chest rig into a basic plate carrier complete with back plate bag; and then I decided to build a couple pouches, first pouch was an attempt at doing a vertical, side by side pouch with bungee cord retention, hated it.. so made a 2nd pouch that is much more conventional; holds 4 20rd magazines in a boxy pouch that is kinked on the sides, and has a center divider, and two 3/4 coverage flaps over each pair of magazine.

View of outside of both carriers; the rear carrier has MOLLE strips for attachment of hydration pouch or small gear; or even butt pack on bottom row.

The plate carrier will fit up to 9×12 plates on both front and back. It is basically a simple armor carrier with magazine pockets sewn to the front , and utility/first aid pockets sewn on the sides.

17622557_10212695341283068_589020450_o

My first attempt at a MOLLE 995 20rd pouch for the 20 rd Redball magazines; the idea was to have elastic retention and not a lot of fabric, but it is a failure here, due to the extreme splay and sticking far out away from the platform it attaches to.

17623062_10212695525247667_417350286_o

good view of how far it sticks out from a MOLLE belt; due to being bottom heavy and not having a lot of retention up top other than the elastic cordage

17571744_10212695525287668_871548173_o

Mounted to the MOLLE belt I have, it is not really good here.

Another view of the top half; mounted by the same MALICE clips and same style webbing on the back of the pouch, as the pouch retains the magazines better; the whole thing is far stabler and easier to use.

MOLLE Yucca Pack, modded to a big Lumbar pack!

My small MOLLE Yucca daypack is now doing duty as a beefy lumbar pack on a MOLLE waist belt set up and H harness set up… the main modifications involved were very extensive, basically a whole panel of MOLLE webbing on the back of the pack, plus 4 Ladder-loc buckles at specific locations to function better as a lumbar pack.. With some adjustment on how I attached my MOLLE Sustainment Pouches, I found that it functions better, and gives me some space in the main sack and on the outside… instead of taking up all 12 MOLLE slots on the perimeter for the two Sustainment Pouches, I have spaced it so that each pouch only takes up 5 slots each (for 10 slots), and a gap of 2 MOLLE slots in between for my Nalgene carrier and small misc item pouch. This also provides me with a convenient route for the flap straps..

DSCN2354

The pack. The top stuff sack houses my hammock and bugnet and suspension, while the MOLLE Sustainment pouches each hold the kelty topquilt and the hammock under pad insulation, and the main sack holds my clothing. The nalgene carrier in the lower middle houses an IKEA kitchen caddy turned into a wood burning stove, and the Buschraft Outfitters 10×10 silnylon tarp in Coyote brown.

DSCN2355

View of the waist belt set up; the large pouch holds my food and cook set, while the smaller pouch holds my first aid kit and fire kit, then between the canteen and the pouches are two modified 40mm ammo pouches, one holds my 4.5″ blade knife, the other holds a small 2AA Angle-head flashlight. Obviously there are two water bottles on the belt at the kidney positions.

DSCN2353

Belt opened up, you can see how there’s quite a bit of padding, the belt pad is size Medium, and is basically perfect as a waist belt on this pack system. You can also see the suspension straps for the pack.

DSCN2345

The MOLLE panel for the back, Instead of a normal method of alternating straps, I decided to fill the whole panel with butted straps so that I have basically as many options for attaching it to whatever I want to.

DSCN2352

The upper harness attachment system, what it is, is essentially a load lifter system, the pack’s D-rings are the anchors, while the harness adjuster only serves to locate the top point, and the Ladder-locs on the flap is the main adjusting point.. because I do not have internal stays on the pack, this method is needed to get the pack to ride as close to the back as possible.

DSCN2347

For those wondering how’d I attach the pack to the waistbelt… these are the 4 5″ long MOLLE straps I made up from the scraps I have on hand.

DSCN2356

A pic of the modified 40mm pouch, the only mods needed is the addition of a snap below the original snap to enable me to securely close the flap for better retention of the knife.

ALICE frame modular stuff sack pack system;

Decided to see what the MOLLE compression panels could take, and set up a backpack system in which the main bag is removable and contains all of my hammock camping gear cept tarp and suspension tree straps!

Bottom view, that is a vintage M1967 sleep system carrier being used as the bottom panel.

DSCN2315

Suspension view. Even though this frame is obsolete, and usually not comfortable with ALICE packs…it works pretty good for this load because of the packing system.

The pack contains the following items;

In the WW2 laundry bag stuff sack;

hammock

under pad

bug net

Kelty top quilt

In each of the 4x USMC Coyote brown pouches;

First aid kit (marked with red cross)

cook set and fire kit

food

back up hammock/gear hammock (Grand Trunk UltraLite)

In the MOLLE Water bottle carriers are the water bottles (self explanatory)

USGI M16 pouches carries my tarp in one, and hammock suspension in other

IDF revolver ammo/handcuff pouch houses my compass

Green Buttpack up top carries my clothes for up to 3 days

horizontal MOLLE pouch on very top carries my stakes, cordage, bandannas.

I do have room enough in the WW2 laundry bag to carry more insulation if I need to.

I notice that the MOLLE compression panels will likely need a 3rd buckle in the middle, and 2 more straps to attach to the frame, so that it compresses better around the main stuff sack.

3-4 days worth of clothes in MOLLE Sustainment Pouch

Hatchet in between Sustainment Pouch and Main pack

foods in 3 side pockets, large foods in the USMC Coyote Brown pockets and small foods in one camo pocket, while the final camp pocket holds the tree straps for the hammock and a bandanna and headlamp

Moving on to the harness;

handgun with ammo

first aid kit in one black pocket

Long Ogee tarp in second black pocket

tarp lines and stakes in shotgun ammo pouch (no shotgun ammo)

snacks and misc items in fourth black pocket

handgun ammo magazines in USGI mag pockets attached to two black pockets

With this load out, the entire kit should be good for 3-4 days of hiking and traveling in the woodlands…

MYOG MOLLE Yucca Pack!

Made a MOLLE version of the Boy Scouts Yucca/ Green Bar Bill Pack; using 1000D DCU Cordura scraps….. Since I wanted a day pack that was in between the size of a Recon Buttpack and the size of a normal Schoolbag or the Medium Ruck sack…plus the ability to add or subtract pouches to it….I looked into my sewing fabrics drawer and out came the DCU Cordura material…I did not have enough width to make the pack the way  I make my pouches, but I had enough material to make a pack a little differently; with two side panels sewn to the main panel.

DSCN2170

Bare pack; with straps undone..yes the flap is ridiculously long, but its for a reason

DSCN2176

Flap opened up to show full height of the panel; 6 rows and 6 slots of MOLLE

DSCN2171

Side of pack; with 6 rows and 3 slots of MOLLE; for attachment of whatever you could want. Could thread cord through some slots and use that to compress the sides if needed?

DSCN2172Bottom of pack with 3 rows and 4 slots of MOLLE, for attachment of either MOLLE Waistpack or lashing straps for gear

DSCN2173

Back of pack without shoulder straps attached. The D-rings are for shoulder straps obviously, but they could also be used to strap to a frame or a larger ruck sack if one wanted to.

DSCN2175

Top of pack, showing the “ear flaps” to keep most weather out. I might add snaps to the edges to seal better…

DSCN2174Its like a cave of T-shirts! there’s enough space for up to 3 or 4 days of clothing in there….provided you put the rest of your camp gear outside it…as these next two pics will show!

DSCN2178

All packed up for a summertime/warm weather camp trip! Green sack has my modified Kelty topquilt, and then there’s the freebie Coleman inflatable pad on the bottom…the two squarish pouches holds food, first aid kit, and small batwing tarp. The long horizontal pouch holds tarp stakes, guylines, compass, misc gear.

I have two canteen pouches on this as well;

DSCN2177

The back showing the canteen pouches in use with canteens and cup and canteen stove; and their small pockets hold my Swiss Army Knife, and fire kit. You can see that I am using USGI LC-2 straps for backpacking duty, I could clip the pack to the black webbing harness I have which have two hooks for small packs such as this.

Hope you enjoyed this post!

 

UPDATE on this post! I have more pictures and detail shots of the pack!
