Part of Testing Program: Yes I have tested and reviewed several products.
Other specifications: I’m interested in testing this product, because I have suggested in the past a need for one and have modified an x-sheath to try it as an axe carrier.
How will you test this product: I have several different axes and hatchets so i will be able to test whether this prototype will work for different brands and handle lengths. I will post pictures here on the forum and provide suggestions as to how the pouch can be improved. If the pouch goes into production I will promote through my social media channels.

I am new to the forum, as I will reiterate below... I see the date for this product has passed, however it is still marked open. I wanted to submit a post in case there has been an extension for the product. If not, please disregard my attempt.
Thank you

Not yet. I am new to the forum and excited to have an opportunity to potentially test and help with the quality control aspects of products I use frequently. First and foremost, I am a Police Officer of 6 years and am always looking for new products to help me in the field. I find that a Police Officers ability to systematically and methodically work through a problem at a high rate of speed, their ability to talk to every walk of life, and the tools that they carry are the most important aspects of the profession. I am constantly trying out new items to help me be a better officer to the community I serve. Additionally I am a life long camper and outdoorsman. I have been desert, river, mountain camping for over 30 years and am always looking for new and improved items to enhance the camping experience. I have a small ranch with animals ranging from equine and canine to poultry and swine.
Other specifications
I am interested in testing this gear specifically because packs are a huge part of what I do at work, outdoors in general, and on the ranch. Having a pack with the addition of an axe pouch is a fundamentally sound design as it frees up real estate on the waist and allows for a wider range of hatchet/axe/tomahawk to be carried depending on the need.
How will you test the product(s)?
I would be happy to post pictures and videos here on this forum regarding the quality and versatility of the product. If this product moves into production from testing I would be happy to make recommendations to others regarding it s quality and many uses.

Hello, I’m new to this process and an avid user of One Tigris products. I’m a Veteran of the Canadian military Airborne. An avid hunter and outdoor enthusiast who has used some of your products in the field and am truly impressed and would definitely say they are military grade, with my past experience.
I would like to test your products because to get a truly superior product, it takes people who use the product to get the right feedback.
My reviews will contain video and written testimony, though some may be negative, we must fall first before we can get up.
Thank you for your consideration AATW !

Received my axe holder/pouch today and found a couple issues with it that could be easily rectified. Due to this no video at this time since it can't support my 17" hatchet.

1. My Hatchet could not be strapped down securely. The top flap needs to be longer and I would say make it longer by 1.5" to 2" and would suggest to just put the 2" extra on it to be safe since that is how much length my hatchet would require. My hatchet head is roughly 3" height and 1" thick when in its own sheath. That equals for 7" just there in length that strap needs to wrap around. Your strap is 7" plus part of the case which = 8" and gives about an inch of over lap in which that part isn't hook velcro to the end so you get about 3/4" of over hang which is not enough to support the hatchet into the pouch. Anyways the top strap needs to be lengthened.

2. Next issue was the adjusting of the wrap around straps for the handle. I found it was a pain due to it all clinging to itself especially the tightness strap. Some of the loop velcro needs to be removed off that for making adjustments or loosening it to get your item out easier. There is a section of that loop on that tightness strap where the loop velcro is not needed and I marked it in picture below. Strap length on that was fine. This can easily be done since the hook strap is connected to the pouch itself and the loop strap portion is sewn onto the Hook strap. So the loop portion can easily be shortened and suggest by like 1.5".

I tested the mounting it to a Pals webbing panel and the Molle section on the Axe holder/pouch measurements are fine so no issues there.

In conclusion it needs a couple tweaks in my mind to be a decent hatchet holder. As you can see I have a 17" Hatchet and it doesn't fit. The top strap needs to be longer and some changes to the support/tightness strap for ease of use need to be considered.

This final pic is to show how I would like to see my hatchet supported in the pouch with that top strap and I used a hammer which was smaller to show comparison.

Other uses:
1. hammer and other similar tools
2. larger flashlights

I ran into the same issues as @WhispTech with the length of the top strap not being long enough. I would agree that an extra two inches would be sufficient. I also found that the support strap was tough to get set. I found that the support strap needed to be sized for the pommel (end of the handle) in order for the axe to be easily removed. Out of the four axes I tried with the sheath, I was able to secure three of them. The one that didn’t work was a Gerber camp axe with a similar axe head shape that Whisptech shows in his picture. Here are some pictures with the Hultafors Classic axe, Gransforbruk wildlife hatchet and the Mora hatchet.

The pack used was the Rover 50, so the side compression strap and pocket provided some support for the handle. You may want to include a separate piece that is basically a piece of elastic webbing with a Molle strap. The handle could then be supported further down the pack.

Thank you for your effort!
The support strap you mentioned is the horizontal one? Is it difficult to be adjusted because of the velcro?
