While I was talking to the colleague who is responsible for making samples, he suggested that if making a pouch as small as 3.5*3'', we could make it something that users could attach into a bigger pouch such as admin pouch, what do you think of this suggestion, Sir?

It wasn't going to go inside of something though. Its for wearing on our kit. I saw it more of being placed on a battle belt, on a vest, attached to front of vest on mag pouches or the top section of the vest which not many items can be placed and have something that could fill that space that was low profile and out of the way along to easy access to the cartridges. Even then I would not put it inside the admin pouch in which the admin pouch uses the 3 row molle setup so this pouch could be attached to the outside of it on the front if someone wished and why would you put a molle able pouch inside a pouch.

Also so there is no confusion on the inside of the pouch it is to have 4 sections for 4 cartridges with the elastic material. Example shown. Basically that style of pouch but smaller and only holds 4. As mentioned before the ones we can get now are just way to big and bulky and really meant for shotgun shells. This is to focus on co2 12 gram cartridges for airsofters and paintballers. For my setup I would have it top left of my vest due to wraith buffer tube on my rifle and for reloads. Right now I have the pouch shown below but its just way to bulky. Gets in the way of pulling stanang mags and I don't need that many co2. Paintbullers have a setup but it holds 11 co2 and its bulky and again in airsoft we don't need to carry that many.

Thank you for your analysis of its application and structure design. Now @Sucre is following this project. He will make a sample of this CO2 pouch. I already forwarded your idea and suggestions to him.

BTW finally found the pouch (I was wearing it everyday on the MOLLE panel lol) that had the design I was talking about. Just need one row of pals and move the strap up for a 3 row.
what's the advanced point of it comparing to other pouches?

Cool. Its basically like that just one row of pals webbing though to make for it to fit on 3. Basically same concept though. Looking forward to the prototype.

You guys should easily be able to find a 12g co2 cartridge for testing as well for the sizing.

So I tested this with the PALS/Molle panel in the afternoon
and found one thing that might be a little bit inconvenient to the users.

As you can see, the back molle straps looks like this and when it was attached to the panel, buttons could be a little bit hard to press with and causing the bottom part of this pouch a little bit higher than it should be.

Now a comparison of two button strap tyoes:

I can tell just by those pics that you are not attaching it to the pals webbing properly and that is why it is doing that. It can be a pain but the strap needs to go thru the pals webbing of the item you are attaching too on third bottom row and then you slip that bottom strap underneath then snap. If doing it to brand new pals webbing that is still tight yeah can be hard but once the webbing is worked in it works. Also will only work with properly done 1.5" spaced pals webbing.

Also looks like you did the front design totally different then how I designed it but looks like it will work and would like to check it out. Looks like instead of a open pocket with elastic retention loops inside Its been sewn and a pocket for each cartridge is made which will work as long as the cartridges fit in.

Anyways a bit different then what my initial design was but it looks like it will work. Only way is for me to check it out and test it and make a video explaining again.

Just to note there is a second version of this that was shown to me but not here yet. Maybe @Rin can post up those pics?

The second version has the elastic strap inside with an open pouch style.

Can't wait to get that in hands as well to test. Know the first version is on its way but will do a video once I get the second version to compare them and get thoughts. That way I can compare and choose which one I think works best and why.
