    Default Similar Pockets, Other Manufacturers

    Hello Everyone,
    Like so many, I missed the boat purchasing various Kifaru pockets. I own an EMR and a Navigator. I am wondering if anyone has knowledge/experience with pockets of similar size, features, quality etc. to out-of-production Kifaru pockets and thought starting a thread of "match-to-match" would be helpful to many. Specifically, I am interested in finding matches to Kifaru long pockets, 2 quart utility and claymore, but am sure other sizes/features, etc would interest me and other members.
    Thank you very much.

    This was a recent thread, http://www.kifaruforums.net/showthread.php?t=46570

    I'm planning on reaching out to the folks mentioned there, haven't had time due to Rondy prep (snowshoeing and cutting wood) and Cub Scout February craziness (taking over as Cubmaster, and working with kids cutting out Pinewood Derby cars and running the race)

    I think it's worthwhile to chime in there to consolidate the 1. pouches you're after and 2. the colors you want.

    I have one of their duffle bags and its bombproof. I plan to order some pouches in the future.

    I have a few as well, thanks man, I'll drop this in that other thread as well, I'll take any chance to send Eric business, great guy, and though his offerings are different, he's sewn a LOT of Kifaru, whether y'all know it or not.

    Pods8 on Rokslide. It is Adam at ruggedstiching@gmail.com. I carried a custom pack this weekend that he made for a NICE frame, main bag held a USGI black bag and bivy and an Exped Downmat 9, then had a meat shelf that held a 15" cast iron skillet, a large pod, shovel, snowshoe tails, big zebra pot, a chain saw on top with gas, and an AR in a gunbearer.

    Everyone I know who he's built stuff for is really pleased with cost/quality/speed/design flexibility.
