DIM: 10.5" x 6.25" x 1"
A more unique item, it works great for having quick access to documents and other admin goods. The intention is to mount it on the chest area of you kit, however it can also work well attached to a tactical bag. When mounted to the chest, the panel opens to about 100 degrees thus making a great hands-free admin platform.
The elastic and pocket layout has all you need to get your navigation on. The arrangement is made to accomodate pens, notebook, protractor / ruler, and of course... a map. The map flap will keep your papers dry (covered, but not water tight) and is also removable if you want to tear it out to easily display to others. Unfortunately the map flap doesn't quite fit 8.5" wide legal papers and fits about 8" x 11" paper. Another slight draw back is the zippers can get caught in the open angle limiting straps. When opening sometimes the thin webbing slides right in the zipper jamming it up. Perhaps a cord like 550 may be better used here and won't slide into the zipper track. As you see, the panel is indeed big taking up my whole upper chest area on my kit requiring 6 PALS channels. I was worried this would interfere with my weapon stock placement, but since the panel is flat, it actually is not much of an issue and easy to get used to stocking against.
*Added note: Another loadout is to mount on the lower front of one's kit and have 3 mag pouches mounted on of the Commander Panel
*UPDATE: Did the 550 mod I spoke of, works a crapload better with no snags.
