I'm still not back to work with this rehabbing the broken hand but I'm still not allowed to play paintball yet. So what does a bored druid do? Makes MOLLE pouches for his daughter's SpecOps vest.

A pouch for a 3lb CO2 bottle or a 114/45...and this is the 3lb CO2 bottle, compared to a 2L soda bottle:

How the webbing is situated behind the bottle neck:

The cinching strap with a buckle:

The MOLLE webbing on the rear:

Mounted to the front of her vest:

Pod flaps with Velcro:

The MOLLE webbing on the back of the panel. You see Flecktarn between the MOLLE because I used a piece to make the panel itself a bit thicker/more rigid. You cannot see it from outside:

The pod pack mounted:

And she needed a nameplate too:

XSiv...thought about it...I really did. The problem I've seen is twofold;

1. adjustability. Not so much in sizing...but in pod packs, pouches, etc. Not everyone will be happy with one set "pattern" or "style" and changing a particular style would [probably] be a mess to hold control of.
2. Cost effectiveness and turnaround. For me to make a good vest, would require quality materials that would take a while for one person (me) to make. They wouldn't be as quickly made as they are in mass production and to be honest, not that much cheaper.

TDS.........thanks.

interesting.

I could conceal my 2L bottles of soda when i wander around town and nobody would notice, but seriously your gear looks way more sound than anything we would buy.
