    Something small. 4.5x3 interior dimensions minimum. Nothing over 5". Something like the Maxpedition Barnicle or Anemone. However, it needs to have a built in belt loop, or clip. I want a quality piece, as it needs to hold up to daily use.
    I'm wanting it to stash my NAA pug, a reload, small pocket knife, and a few emergency necessities.

    The highest quality 'specialty' pouches I know of are found here: https://skinthsolutions.com/

    Alternative, sounds like you are describing a small general purpose pouch. Lots of companies make that kind of size. Maybe look at 'small general purpose pouches'?

    let us know what you decide on, please. :)

    The IDF .38/handcuff pouch might work?

    Little smaller; 3.5x3.5 but has loops for revolver ammo and a space for things.. can be worn on ALICE pistol belts with the grommets, or clipped to other belts. I was able to put a lensatic type compass in mine. Not sure it can fit a folder knife, unless diagonal?

    http://www.libertytreecollectors.com/productcart/pc/viewPrd.asp?idproduct=9491

    Edit; otherwise, the field dressing/compass pouch from USGI ALICE systems likely would work good, but may not be as secure due to only having one snap and no velcro... small items can and will fall out easily.

    A MOLLE grenade pouch may work, especially the taller smoke grenade types... as long as its not open on the bottom.

    A Skinth might work. Definitely have some neat sheaths.
    A GP type pouch is exactly what I'm looking for. Unfortunately they are all molle attached, and dont have a belt loop. I dont like the way molle straps hang from a belt.

    That would be perfect, if it had a belt loop or clip.

    A handcuff pouch might work. I'll have to look more into those.

    Add one? It’s pretty easy you can use the soft loops from maxpedition, it’s simple and works. Many other options too

    Condor has a roll-up pouch or a gadget pouch that may suit your needs. They are <$20 and are available from Amazon. I have the roll-up pouch which is handy for carrying a camera or small binoculars.

    Voodoo tactical also makes a pouch about that size with belt loops. I made a small PSK out of one.

    I don't have any Badlands pouches, but I did buy one of their packs second hand- scout sized backpack, not very big. It was perfect for our last Florida vacation. It's very well made and I'd have no problem trusting it for an extended hike... so long as the size wasn't a problem.

    You're looking for a pouch, too, huh?
    I've had no luck and little response in my thread. As you said, what would work is discontinued :mad:

    I don't know why one of these vendors of hobbyists can't make a wanted item. Especially a discontinued item :33:

    They didn’t sell well for a big manufacturer. I can’t imag the margins would be better for s hobbyist unless someone was willing to pay for one offs

    The overhead of a hobbyist or small vendor working out of their house has got to be much lower than a big manufacturer.
    I'm sure it could work out as long as they weren't purchasing the materials as if they were going to produce and sell 100 of them.

    It depends actually... for a big company, its about economy of scale, less costs for more fabric than for the hobbyist or home business who gets from retail sources.. but also the machines, bigger companies are using more automated equipment to make things uniformly, while the home machine people have to do all the steps on one machine..

    Well consider this. Would you pay a person to spend about 6 hours from making a pattern, to cutting fabric and webbing, and sewing the thing up, or would you pay a company who employs 15+ people to make say at least 40 in the same 6 hours?

    It must have sold out sometime after I posted it. I added one to my cart for purchasing later and it isn't there now. It was discounted over 75% to $9.24 .
