From the first moment I opened the pouch, feeling the smoothness of the zippers as the outer shell parted to reveal the BDS idea of organization, I knew SLAP was something special. The outside of the pouch has a hook loop flap closed pocket roomy enough for a large cellphone and multitool. On the internal body-side divider, there are more pen sleeves than you can shake a chemlight at! The outboard internal divider has two larger pockets sewn in that can accommodate two double stack pistol mag each! Or as I’ve done, a few usb flash drives in a neoprene holder an a tube of Mighty Putty! (that stuff fixes everything!!)
So what do I have in mine? Here’s the list….Keep in mind, I’m using this with a backpack to provide a higher order of organization for the little stuff. This is not my full EDC…
2 Flash Drives
Fire Starter w/Tinder
Sharpie & Pen
Oral IV 4 Pack
Antenna & Scanner
Grimocs and some 123A Batteries
As you can see, there is a lot of room in the SLAP for everything…Even the kitchen sink! The pouch is just the right size…Its not so small that you have to thin your kit to use it or so large that you begin to carry more stuff than you need. As Goldilocks said, “This one is just right!”
Combine that with the new Stacker Lock design and you have an awesome pouch that is a snap to weave onto your gear. The Stacker Lock is simple and it works as advertised. It provides an ultra secure mounting for the SLAP. Once its on, this pouch wont shift or move at all. Trust me, I‘ve pulled, jerked, swung, shook and yanked on the SLAP and it didn’t budge!
Knowing the impact this pouch has made on my EDC I can only imagine the uses troopers in the field have found for it! If you have a bag, pack or vest you are looking to improve the organization of, look no further. The BDS SLAP will take your old and busted Go-Bag and make it a powerhouse of order and neatness!
In an rapidly changing environment where you need quick and reliable access to your gear, the SLAP is where its at. Things stay where you put them. Gone are the days of fumbling for items in your kit! I’ve been BDS SLAP’d!…how about you?
