- Nice pouch - needs instructions Review by Grunt
It comes shipped with a high visibility (orange) piece of material that includes a pull tab with some Velcro on it, as well as an elastic loop and a clash hook. It seems the intent is that your TQ is wrapped up in this somehow, with the elastic loop holding the TQ in it's folded state. Presumably, the pull tab would be Velcro'd to something near or on the cover of the pouch so the TQ can be easily removed from the pouch in the event of an emergency. The problem is there are no instructions explaining exactly how to stage your TQ in this orange piece, what to do with the pull tab, the Velcro, or the elastic loop.
I have tried multiple methods of wrapping up a CAT in this, but nothing seems to be quite right. There's only two ways to attach the clash hook to the loop on the cover. That leaves a few options for wrapping the TQ in the orange material. But no matter which option I try, nothing seems to be the obviously correct solution.
I have found two Youtube videos on this. One from Skinny Medic, who also sells these. He indicates that he's not quite sure how to use this piece of material. A second video from AR500 shows mentions this pouch with the AFAK, but the reviewer doesn't spend spend any time showing how to set it up. He only opens it quickly and does not really show how to set it up.
I wish someone would include instructions or create a clearer video showing how to use this properly.
