Janice whipped me up one of these for the seminar, built to the specs I sent her. It's a Claymore Pocket that mounts horizontally, with a full length zipper across the top. It uses 4 Malice Clips for attachment to the PALS webbing. There are 2 compression straps that come up and over the top and connect with SR buckles. The one I have is in Coyote Brown, and it fits perfect on the top lid of a Pointman. You guys coming to the seminar will be able to fondle it in person. This will be just the first of some new pockets on the horizon. Stay tuned.

Pictures would be great. BTW, are you guys going to post pictures of the West Coast "rally" for those of us who are unable to attend?

Would one of these fit on the lid of a Pointman sideways?

I believe there is that one pouch in existance. It was a prototype being debuted at the seminar. I don't recall when they plan to go into production. Give Mel a call and ask.

When I talked to Mel, he told me it was available. I called and ordered 2 of them, one for each of my packs, last week.

Sorry for the raw pictures. I thought it was better to get these pics out, rather than waiting for me to color balance the shots. More to come as Mel sends them.

Mel or Patrick sign me up for one of the Malice claymore pouches and an E&amp;E pouch both in OD, I want in on the first production run. Should I call in to confirm or shoot you guys an e-mail, when is this going to happen?

_Can I get any infor on the new lumbar pack?

Mel/Patrick - When are the MALICE Claymore pouches expected to be ready? -Just checking you guys still have my order right? -I think I might have been down for an E&amp;E back pouch too, not sure though. Thanks for sending the radio pouch, works great for the laptop.

What would be the advantages of the Malice attachment over the Dock and Lock?

Malice lets you weave the pocket onto a pals equiped
pack/vest making it stay on , while the dock&amp;lock allows you to have something you can quickrelease that still stays on where you want it.

I know the differences, I want to know what the advantage to the Malice attachment would be. In other words, why would you want it over the dock and lock?

Kerberos

ok, in my humble opinion the dock &amp;lock usually only connects 4-6 clips between your pouch and the bag.

While the Malice weaves it togheter creating a stronger bond.

There would be more movement of the pouch using dock&amp;lock then their would be using Malice.

Ok, so it's an orientation issue. Thanks.

Its also a 'removability' issue. If you want to be able to quickly attach &amp; detach the pocket, use Dock 'n Lock. If you intend to mount the pocket in one place and keep it there for an extended period, go with MALICE.

---Moloch38-

Your Malice Claymore Pouch will head your way this week.

---Razor-

I'd add that the D&amp;L Pouches and Pockets compress both the pocket AND its contents to whatever you put it on.

Patrick or Mel...
So are these pockets ready for us to order?
I just live down here in Aurora, any chance of driving up and buying one in OD
Thanks

Mel

99superduty, yes the Malice Clip Claymore pockets are ready to order. You are welcome to go to the shop to get one, but give them a call first, to make sure they have what you want in stock. The added bonus of going to the shop is getting to see all the gear.
