  • What- Molle Tripod Project Board
  • Color options- black/Tan
  • Highlights and functions- Easy assembly,gives the ability to keep all your camera tools and gear at close hand and organized using other smaller pouches.
  • Specific use & purpose- For outdoor video and photography, Youtubers,Vloggers and bloggers, journalist, sporting events....etc. Gives you the ability to pull directly from your back pack with the pouches already attached,slip over legs of tripod and neck, tighten and done. Keeps extra batteries,lens ,SD cards,cleaning kit's, extra lenses, battery packs ,audio equipment or camera weather gear where you need it at the camera.
  • How were you inspired- I do outdoor photography and video and have always had the need for something like this.

If we could give the molle platform a inner core it would give it some rigidity(two layers of material with maybe a plastic sheet core), nothing heavy duty just something that would stiffen it up, it wouldn't matter what position the legs were in, the bungi/shock cords would adjust and give tension, weight from attached items would help keep cords from riding up the legs. In the attached sketch this would be the same leg just in different angled positions. Also having a rigid board would make it pack easier when not on tripod.

May I suggest you round the 3 corners a bit - it would just make it look neater and make it fit some more “angles”.

One other suggestion is to shape it so it fits a bit lower down the tripod - thus it gets wider and then you can cut off a bit from the top...
The Molle loops right in the corners will never get used, why not delete them and maybe ad a patch of velcro to one corner for a id-patch?

what do you mean by neater? Can you explain it with more details?

em... now we made is 60° on each angle. so do you mean to make the top angle larger and the other two divide the else equally?

I don't think we should lower it further down the tripod, what your saying makes sense but if we do that we change the center of gravity and possibly make the tripod unstable or more prone to tipping in one direction...

I beg to differ about the balance: if the added weight is lower down and effectively further away than the mass center it would become more stable, not less.

Think about this differently: what would happen if you lower it completely to ground level? It would become very stable...(?) The same effect would start to happen when you lower the “pad”.

Not that I think the effect can be this serious seeing how stable a tripod usually is...

Love your idea as per drawing!

No what I mean is to effectively just cut off a part of the top in a horizontal line and then make the whole pad a bit wider on the horizontal line so it still reach the legs if you move the pad a bit lower.

If you make the corners a little bit rounded the pointy ends will not fold over or get frayed and I have a suspicion it would make the ends a bit more durable. I do not suggest bid radius corners, but just rounding the very end.

These suggestions is optional and just suggestive - the pad looks good as per your drawing Andy.

/:funnyLook what we have done

This is the back of it, we found that by designing in this way (sewing three little triangle plates on it), it'll be easier both for shipping and folding

So when u fold this up, it'll become a little triangle plate

Just simply put some stuff on it and attached it to the tripod, wonder what will u guys put when in actual use:D
