Hello everyone.

I am doing product design as a side business.
At first, I was thinking of making a prototype myself, but I posted it here because the genre is different from my specialty.

WHAT: Highlights & functions
I devised to utilize MOLLE compatible items inside bags and bagpacks.

WHY: Specific use & purposes
You can build new organized storage in your bag or bag pack.
You can use it to organize and store your business items and digital gadgets.

HOW: How you were inspired
I came up with it when I was thinking about how to organize the VAPE items in my bag.

WHAT: Proposed product name
Plate carrier in bag

WHAT: Brief outline/description of appearance
A foamed polyethylene board is sandwiched between CORDURA and bordered. Then install the MOLLE system belt on both sides.
It is designed in the smallest size, but it would be nice to have a vertical or large variation.

WHAT: Color options
First from black.

WHAT: Material
-Polyethylene foam board
-CORDURA
-Nylon

Design draft
-There is a temporary drawing.
-The numerical unit is mm.
-There is no tag on the back side.
-CAD rendering is a use case. Because the design is a older version.

Similar products
-I know that there are products with multiple rubber belts instead of the MOLLE system. * There is no handle and MOLLE system.
-There are resemble items in onetigris' in-vehicle products.
-The concept of the linked "MOLLE Organizer" is quite resemble.

I'm sorry if there are other similar products.
Thanks.

Thank you for your idea and effort for doing the sketch. To my first impression, this should be designed to carry beers and have party. Overall it's quite creative. It needs laser-cut for the handle design and this is what we are unable to do right now. But we can do an alternative design for it if we decide to make a sample.

Thank you for your response!
I think I can understand that the image of CAD rendering gives the impression of carrying beer.
Because the base looks like "wood". It really suits beer.
I thought it could be used as a tool (case) carry.

When I think about the design, I will upload the product image based on it.
I was thinking of a product that would fit in a bag.

However, what I would like to propose first is the "plate carrier part".
In other words, what kind of pouch is attached to the plate carrier and how to use it depends on the user.
Of course, as a beer carrier set, I think it is a good idea to develop a dedicated pouch as an option.

If it becomes a plate carrier that can be used more flexibly, it will have more uses, so I am very welcome.

Is Laser Cutter NG a problem only when making samples?
For me, the hole type handle is the best, but I will post another variation that came to my mind immediately.
* This is just a variation plan of the handle. Details such as size are not considered.

Yeah I know your original idea for it is more flexiable and variable. Is more like a Molle panel and you can attach different pouches on it to achieve different layouts.

The new design plan has been completed and will be uploaded.

The plate carrier has a different handle design and more webbing to increase versatility.

As for the drink holders to be combined, there are many ready-made products (drink holders alone), so I was at a loss, but the design is based on the concept of "simple attachment / detachment" and "attachment to the belt". (I also added the ability to keep the drink level, but I omitted it because it would be costly)
The flow is to carry beer to the party venue and replace the drink holder with a belt at the venue to enjoy it.

The dot button is mainly for height adjustment when the belt is attached.
Since it is hung on the top, there may be a problem with the balance of the center of gravity when storing long cans or using the buttons at the bottom (test required).

The following are countermeasures.
--Discard the dot button and reattach it.
--Put a metal support vertically between the dot button caps to the bottom.
--Change the material of the parts with the dot button cap.

We did a sample already and attached some pouches on it. This is what it looks like. I will test it on a bicycle and see is it stable or not.

I am still confused about where it can be applied for. Any idea for this?

Wow, thank you for making a prototype!

Items that cannot fit in one pouch are put together in one lump using multiple pouches attached to the carrier.
It can be carried, stored, and taken out as a single mass.
A tool for expanding the pouch.
People who haven't used the pouch in its original way may come up with various uses.

- Originally, it was supposed to be used in a bag or backpack or at the office desk side. Organize and store items such as writing tools and digital gadgets. It can be taken out all at once, and since it has a handle, it can be carried alone. Easy to replace with another bag.
- If you use it as a small pouch carrier in combination with a travel bag, you can take out the carrier together at your accommodation or hang it on the wall.
- It can also be used as a simple tool carrier.
- If it can be fixed to the bicycle well, it can be used as a maintenance tool pouch.

I will consider other ideas for how to use it.

Although it is a product of another company, drink pouches like the one in the image are on sale. It is usually used by attaching it to a belt or a MOLLE-compatible backpack.

If you combine this product with "Plate Carrier", you can use it as a drink carrier.
The idea for a beer carrier was suggested, I think it's a good example of how to use it as a pouch extension tool.
