A few months back I posted a thread titled EDC for the backcountry to get an idea what other community members might be carrying with them in the backcountry.
The whole thought begins this was to come up with a OneTigris modular system that can be added to or taken from depending on the length of the trip and the season.
Attached is a pic of the OneTigris water bottle carrier, EDC Commuters Pouch and the new Dragon Snail Pouch. This would be the bare minimum that I would take with me on a daily trip. I’m working on some design drawings for a larger bag that these pouches could attach to, that would allow me to pack a tarp, more food, bigger cookset etc. This new design bag would then be able to be attached to a larger bag (maybe it would become front pouch) for extended trips. The accessory pouches shown would be attached to the main pack as well.
Thoughts?

BTW the Steel Sparrow pouch would be part of this system as well, but isn’t available in Multicam or I would have worked it into the system.

My vision is attaching the first bag to say a bag like the Rover 50. I agree Pals webbing will be needed to attach the different pouches.
:unsure:Cuz I cant think of anything besides pals, but of you have maybe that will be a total change of tacticool stuffs haha!

I have been contemplating this idea as well. I have figured my hammock and tarp system down to two water bottle pouches, they would mount well on the side of a medium sized pack, having 30 ish liters interior space with a small front compartment, MOLLE/PALS webbing on sides and front exterior, expandable straps top and bottom.... hydration pack grommet... waist belt with a zipper pouch left and right hip... This is starting to sound like a conference video call may be needed to proceed. :D

Here is what I have configured so far. The pack is the Rover 50 with the Foxtrot Aplha mounted on the right side. The EDC commuter pouch is mounted on the front of the pack and one of the Dragon Snail Admin pouches (small) mounted on the lid.

On the left side of the pack is the Dragon Snail Tool Pouch and 2 X-Sheaths.

And finally, I have the newest Dragon Snail Admin pouch mounted as a chest rig and the Grenade Water bottle carrier mounted on the waist belt.

I attached the water bottle holder to the waist belt as I felt that was the best location. My “vision” is that possibly the new and improved Clawhammer could be integrated into this system, my suggestion would be to replace the front pocket. There are several modifications I would suggest making to the Rover. With this system I have immediate access to first aid kit, fire kit, folding saw, fixed blade knife, water and filter , cooking kit and several other tools. The main bag holds tent, sleeping bag, clothes and food. If there is an appetite to move forward with this idea, I can send measurements and suggestions in. You can see the importance of having the pouches available in different colours like Multicam.

I got question~Since I'm not a weight loaded person but a lightweight pack person, will this setup make you lose balance? I mean when you having the full backpack setup on your back, will you feel that it has some unbalance sense?

The items in the pouches aren’t heavy enough to throw off balance. You do have to “balance” out the pack when you’re packing it.
