    Hi friends! Several of you have sent me pm's with some really neat ideas you have. I thought I'd start a thread so they're all in one place and easy to find. I don't want this just to be new product ideas for me to try and make(some things are out of my skill set!) But a place where we collectively share ideas with each other. Some of you are incredibly skilled and creative and might be able to create someone else's vision much better than I could.
    Feel free to share ideas, sketches, critiques and feedback is encouraged!

    I'll start: Here's a new pouch I've been spending all day making and re-making...
    It's a double sided ripstop pouch with clear vinyl on one side.

    What do you think? Anything you would add or change?

    LL Bean Continental Rucksack. Lots of our rivers in Maine remain open to fishing during deer hunting season. Carrying a brown/khaki pack isn’t a good idea. Just a suggestion, but a simple orange pack cover with a way to attach it through the pack straps to prevent it from being pulled off in the brush would be really popular in my opinion. Maybe a zipper ,Velcro or pass through openings to access the main pouch and pockets without having to remove the cover ?

    A large zip pouch (hammock sized) that has daisy chain running length wise so I can slide haversack straps through, Kind of an alternative to a stuff sack for the under side of a haversack?

    A PSK size pouch with single zipper. Zipper can open in middle or top. I picture this having a slightly larger interior volume than an altoid tin. They could also be used for a small FAK or fire kit. I would put a couple of these in one of the box pouches.

    I'd love to turn the blocky, heavy tins into light but robust pouches.

    Well that is an interesting idea! I would have to play around with that for a while, I'm intrigued. :)

    CAUTION: COOL STUFF ABOUNDS!!!

    Check this out @CountyComm.com: https://countycomm.com/collections/pouches/products/zipper-key-pouch-by-maratac

    I have one of the slightly smaller early version on my truck keys to hold all of the "keychain" tools (sliver gripper tweezers, nail clippers, Gerber Curve mini multi-tool, P51; Along with a mini BIC lighter, $1.50 in quarters, emergency cash, eyeglass cloth, smaller keys to my ammo, etc. lock boxes) and there's room for a little more.

    All of the tools and smaller keyring are clipped to the inner paracord loop, (so I can flip them out without losing them) to access the items below them. My truck keys are on the outer loop.

    The larger Rev.2 might fit you need. CC also has others, including a belt pouch that easily holds a Altoids tin sized object.

    Here's a little larger, water-resistant pouch that they also offer:

    I see my post from yesterday did not stick so,

    A small top zip pouch wallet sized for cards and I’d with a loop on one or both ends. Preferably in multicam with orange lining.

    Your current sit pad with ripstop on both sides and loops on each end of zipper. Could be stuffed with insulation natural or man made, used to collect tinder, make a debris shelter or collect wild edibles.

    Oversized handkerchiefs/bandanas in regular fabric and or flannel like you make already.

    If you are on the fence about ordered from Foxlite do it you will not be disappointed.

    Thank you for the kind words and the ideas! When you say "loops" do you mean a pull tab made of webbing (like on the pouches I already make) or more of a shock cord?

    Small eyelet on each end tab to tie a small laceing size cord to if you wanted to neck carry like those under the shirt passport/money holders.
