So my buddy Eggroll of Extreme Gear Labs teamed up with my other buddy Tim at Maxpedition to make these cool panels. They work great as a patch platform while also providing slim admin storage.
Just in case you like to mix things up a bit, the exterior has PALS webbing so one can add that extra pouches as needed. The 6" height on both versions line up with the PALS well and gives enough room to fit most pens. Although the Haffafug can hold a small notebook, the user can carry larger media like maps easier in the Fugly. On both there is a velcro sealed sleeve pocket which has pull tabs to assist in opening. Behind that is an open sleeve that has elastic loops inside to easily hold an assortment of writing tools or chem-lights. The Fugly has wider elastic divisions on the ends that can hold larger items like folding knives and flashlights. As a result you have a sealed pocket for important small stuff and have your open pocket for quick grab items so you don't have to open any flaps for frequent use items. The back PALS are sewn a little different in which the central rows have less divisions. Most people will use 2 long Malice clips to attach to their kit, but you can use more if desired. Although most people will use the Fugs chest mounted on vests, they can also work great on packs. You not only get a patch panel, but a little organizer as well. I can see the Fugly working particularly well on Law Enforcement vests to allow large ID patches, yet while still keeping the exterior PALS option. As a note, for small guys like me the Fugly is a bit wide when chest mounted coming in at 9". It likely will work for big boys fine, but works great for all sized folks when back mounted. I highly recommend the Fugly and Haffafug for those who want a patch panel with some extra sass or super slim admin pouch.
