Currently designing an EDC pouch. I was wandering whether I should add a thigh strap attachment that would attach to the belt at the top and a seperate strap to wrap around the thy. Would it be worn in public for general use or just in an outdoor environment?

You should consider why you’d want this extra strap: I’m all for it but maybe for the wrong reasons 😜

They just released that drop leg holster. Could just attach the pouch to that or an other style drop leg. Usually even the pre configured pouch setups are removable from the drop leg panel.

In my opinion the belt postion is not the right place for a verticle pouch as it can get in the way when crouching or sitting. It can even be uncomfortable when standing if fully packed out and keep your clothes from falling as they would normally. Out of curiousity what reasons would you want it or what are the 'wrong reasons'?

I agree that the strap in the pic is very high on the leg.
The right reason will be to have a pouch that does not flap around egen moving and a pouch that picots with your leg: when sitting the pouch would ve horizontal like your leg and standing it would be vertical.
The “wrong” reason would be because it looks cool and that it can be used as a make-shift harnass 😉

I was hoping to just have one piece for the pouch that would allow it to be placed in multiple positions? would this put you off?

Its up to you what you want. Personally I have multiple drop legs and if I want to I can just put whatever pouches I have on it be it firstaid, utility , extra mags, holsters and so on and so on. That why I said just buy a drop leg and shove your pouch on it and you are good to go.

All depends what you want to do, seen people use it on the range, camping, hikers, airsoft, police, military, ems, roofers/construction people. Due to the panel you can add whatever tools or pouches you want and configure how you like.

I mean with regeards to who it's aimed at, i'm not sure yet. But i wnt it to appeal to as many users as possible. How much stress can the pouch take when put on a drop panel? Does it ever snag on your surroundings? does the pouch ever become loose? and is it more comfortable than attaching pouches to the belt panel?

All depends the scenario. I know some individuals in military, police and airsoft that like drop legs and some that don't. It really is a personal preference. When I first started used drop leg but a larger panel that could hold a bunch of stuff but due to being in the bushes it did snag. I ended up resetting up my gear and only my holster with a very low profile and snug drop leg I use now. I don't use my large panel unless at the range or doing something else where it won't get caught up on things. When I do use it I use low profile items on it due to at one point had utility, first aid and a map pouch on it and it was just to bulky for the leg but again my personal preference. As for stress they are pretty sturdy as long as you have a good belt and support. Usually the larger drop legs have two leg straps as well unlike the smaller ones with one. But note larger panel needs more support so thus the two leg straps. For smaller pouches sort of what you are going for one would be fine. If done though and something I have encountered is that the leg straps have to have proper placement and amount of non slip material usually rubber.
