Yep, shove a rubber band behind one of the PALs webbing, and you can use it to wrap around a TQ. If you wanted to remove it, you’d just pull it, and break the rubber band.
Another option for a TQ for a duty/patrol officer is the SRC2, it can be mounted directly to the front of a safariland holster, or to retain the sling of a patrol rifle for a cleaner dismount. Very popular right now. https://www.grayfighter.com/product-page/cg-gen-2-sling
Ten days into working with this pack. So far it is exceeding expectations. Initially I didn't stuff it full with gear. I was hesitant to put too much pull against the elastic bands on the interior...but found them to be giving and we'll stitched. Here are. Couple of pictures from day one. Just getting started with use.
For the first ten days this was attached to a plate carrier. Tossed in and out of the trunk and interior of a vehicle with the weight of the plates on it. Still looks and feels new. Haven't seen any damage or wear as of yet. I'll be attaching it to rifle bag to see how it stands up to weight and variance of carry. For my use I believe it will be more like Soldier... Either an EDC floating with me or on the plate carrier.
So far the only draw back was the fact my my back up CAT tourniquet could not be secured inside. I have attached a molle CAT carrier to the exterior for primary and have found the back up can easily float inside without issue.

The pouch is a a solid (nice) black color.. don't let the picture or my used plate carrier throw you off. First of all the carrier could probably use a good cleaning...it's tossed from my patrol car to the floor of my jeep daily. And the pics were taken at dawn. The flash or lighting may have thrown it off a little. Honestly I believe the color is spot on. I see Wasteland Soldier has remarked on the slight offset with flashlight. I will test mine with different lighting and see if produces different looks.
Howdy everyone. Just touching base with y'all regarding this pouch. Quality...best way I can describe it. 4 months in...tossed in and out of patrol vehicle, in an out of POV...dropped, kicked, stepped on... the material still holds a clean look, zipper runs clean, threads all still in place. Fantastic job with this piece of equipment. Something i can trust to be with me and functional while out on patrol.
