TacHacker – The UnPouch – ShareWear from Advanced Outfitters

This ShareWear design from our friends at Advanced Outfitters is intended as a minimalist carrying solution. The UnPouch consists of bungee cord, a strip of 1″ webbing folded back on its length and sewn or bartacked every inch ala PALS as well as a cordlock to keep it all together.

As you can see in the photo, you weave it all together using your pack’s (or other platform) PALS webbing as a base. It’s all held together with the Cordlock but in a pinch, I’d say a knot would suffice. It will carry various bottles such as the Nalgene model seen here and AO says they’ve carried magazines that way too.

It’s an I the resting minimalist design but this recipe is just the beginning. Based on this concept, you could home brew all kinds of concepts. Give it a whirl. This is an ShareWear concept so feel free to share with friends or with us here at SSD.

Thanks to Advanced Outfitters

    I like the sandblasted Nalgene.

  2. Weaver says:

    Slick. I can see that working with all manner of equipment, particularly if it is devoid of sharp corners to snag the exposed bungee.

  3. John Denny says:

    The only thing I don’t like about this idea is that I’m one of those people that gets snagged on everything, and having more cord hanging here and there makes it just that much worse

    the nalgene is actually sprayed with krylon camo, od over khaki. works great and i haven’t grown a third arm yet.

    and definitely, feel free to use this idea.

    I want….but are the adjustable height-wise?

    I like this kind of thing for drying out socks or a wet poncho outside of a ruck

    I’ve always liked the minimalist idea. When packing for an operation, the thing I keep in mind is “ounces becomes pounds”. I like the idea above because it cuts down weight in two ways: 1) you’re not accumulating weight from just your bag itself, and 2) the pouch (cordage and strapping) is multi-use, so you could get away with bring just this one “pouch” instead of needing several single-use pouch, which also cuts down your weight.

  8. Dave the Rave says:

    On the same theme, this is why I still use military-style ponchos instead of the wet-weather uniforms. I’ve found only the one use for the wet-weather uniform, but the poncho has the following extra uses:
    *can cover you AND YOUR PACK while you’re wearing it,
    *lay it over your gear on the ground to keep your gear dry,
    *it hides the human form, which is a key part of camouflage,
    *it works as a tent.

    very sharp… nice to see some serious inovation that someone is put out there for the greater good!

    It would be helpful if a photo showed the rig without the bottle, so that we could see how the thing is put together. Is this for sale somewhere?
