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

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.
I decided to modify a very old Safariland 3A body armor carrier so that it would accept hard plates in conjunction with the soft armor inserts. It was a simple mod, to see how it all fits in preparation for the woodland camo prototype that will incorporate some ideas I have. I simply sewed up 3.5 inch webbing with velcro to the carrier; so that it will fit the hard plates. I may add side to side retention straps with elastic, or simple webbing to retain the plates from shifting side to side.

Taking a break from doing custom orders for gear; because my wife just had our first child. So the next two weeks to a month or so will be hectic, busy, and just plain unproductive regarding custom gear orders. I may still make some gear in the meantime but it will be for myself.
