    Default PODs on the XRay



    Quick question. In this photo, does Mel have a SMALL POD on top and a MEDIUM POD on the bottom?

    I am planning my next order and am just trying to gauge sizes here.
    Correct me if I am wrong. Thanks [img]/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/laugh.gif[/img]

    Yes, that's right. See also below - small pod at top of picture, medium at bottom:



    You can judge size from the PALS webbing (1" wide and 1.5" between bartacks) or the long pockets (14.5" x 7.25")

    All three sizes, side-by-side:



    Large pods are LARGE - can (are designed to) fit an ENTIRE military modular sleep system. Medium pods were originally designed to fit a TailGunner with belt.

    Brotzie - I love it every time that purple X-Ray gets worked into a thread!

    It is truly a work of art - about as perfect a blend of form and function as you can get [img]/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/smile.gif[/img]

    My eyes!!! [img]/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/cool.gif[/img] pretty cool though, I didn't know that you got a full set of pouches and pods to go with it. Any other purple barney monsters lurking around? [img]/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/laugh.gif[/img]

    Just a Liter-plus Pouch and a Stash-It [img]/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/smile.gif[/img] ... The Stash-It is an absolute hit with Liefie, keeps all her bits 'n' bobs organised and handy, but it's still nice & sleek and doesn't get in the way.

    We've got some of the materials left over, and I have all my old black hardware that I swapped out for tan on my older Kifaru gear; Liefie's next project is a MOLLE-style camera pouch for her new Nikon digital SLR, padded out with some closed-cell foam from a cheap sleeping mat. Don't suppose anyone out there has already done anything similar and wants to offer any design pointers? Photos of course when it's done!

    Sorry for bringing this post back from the dead but I have an xray in route and want to set it up similar to the way Mel has the one in the pic. So this thread established that its a small pod on top and medium on bottom. Sides are mini longs? Mel has another thread stating LL#11 may be a better option for some and probably what I will use.

    So my question is whats the green pocket docked to the front?

    Thanks

    The sides are long pockets (not mini longs) and the back pouch is a Claymore. The LL#11 isn't as tall as the Claymore.

    To each his own of course, but if your plan from the start is to expand the xray as much as possible, why not start with a bigger pack? Just because there are PALS on every side doesn't mean it will carry well covered in pouches.
