Malice clips where designed by Tactical Tailor. I like them because if the PALS webbing is done right on the back of a pouch you can reposition and those Malice clips can be resized as well. You can also screw/attach the Malice clips to other solid objects so you can attach pouches elsewhere. I don't find them difficult to undo once you get use to them.

The first sample is completed.

The main pouch can be taken off easily by pulling the handle and D-ring together when it's unbuckled. The problem we met here is if we don't want to take the main pouch off and just open the front flap only, grabing the handle will make them separate as well. The solution we came up temporarily is shown as below.

1. Removing the buckle and strap on the bottom of the back velcro panel.
2. Shorten the strap on the top of the back velcro panel.
3. Replace the D-ring with buckle.​

I think it is looking better. As for the pulling away of the pouch when not wanting too I don't think is going to be a major issue. I would say majority of the time you are going to take it off the panel anyways to get inside. Have to realize when an individual is wearing this a good portion of the time this will be on their side or back of kit since usually front of gear is utilized for first tier use items. I can state that on the IFAK I currently use because of the weight of items and just pulling on the zippers to open it starts ripping away from its panel as well. Its normal for that to happen.

Also can we see a pic of items mounted on the side such as the tq/shear holder and the shear holder. Would like to see placement of items on side since a lot of those items you would attach only need two rows of PALS webbing. As shown in my pic/diagram I only had two rows and also mentioned that they should be positioned so items such as your tq and shear pouches are centered on the side of the IFAK.

Question: Is that a D-ring on the back panel?

Once this item is completed I am interested in checking it out in black.

Two or four of these in the right spot maybe? @Andy Z.
I was thinking those as well but after some thought think they would interfere with ease of use when trying to pull the unit off. Also when the pack is full of items it warps and isn't completely flat. I could see trying to do those snap buttons up again a pain. Personally I think the issue is being over thought. Its a rip away.

Okay then this is the point we missed when doing prototype. It's 3 columns and 2 straps on both sides for MOLLE webbings. For the situation of 2 columns of webbings, it will be unable to be attached on.

Umm the side of the pouch it self has two columns with three rows of webbing on it for attaching molle items at this time in the pics you showed on each side. Think you are using your columns and rows terminology backwards.

Just want to make sure that the previous 1TG items such as the TQ holders and Shear holders center on the side of the new IFAK prototype. These items https://www.onetigris.com/tourniquet-emt-shear-holder.html and https://www.onetigris.com/catalog/product/view/id/32 . Having two columns is fine. There is items such as a Nitrile glove holder that uses two columns. More concerned about the row positioning for your items I linked to be centered.
