Introduction and Product Overview (00:00):
What I've got here is the latest version of our dump pouch. Now there's only a couple little changes to the pouch itself, the overall design and the function hasn't changed compared to the old model. But basically the main changes are there is a mesh bottom in the bottom of the pouch. So instead of having the single grommet that can allow sometimes 9mm, ammo or your Sharpie and stuff to fall through, we're just gonna use this mesh. That's gonna keep everything inside of your pouch but still allow water to drain through. And because of this, we can call the pouch for maritime use (OTB) and charge an extra 20 bucks. Just kidding. We're not gonna do that. The other key feature or the other upgrade that we kind of did to it is we swapped out some of the material changed the material of the flap and the closure system to the acronym squadron-esque material.

It's a little bit lighter, a little bit fancier, a little-little cooler as well. And then the other thing is we are including a small piece of velcro on the back closure that has hook so that you won't necessarily depending on, you know, how you're wearing this pouch and what kind of belt style, you're not gonna have this rough hook-loop against your pants, against your shirt that might potentially, you know, fray it and, you know, cause all sorts of fun, potential problems. So you have this little patch that just goes right on top. And if you have an older pouch you can fashion one of these yourself or just keep using it as is.

Improvements (01:22):
There's a couple of features to our dump pouch that make it a little bit different than the other ones out there with the first one being the belt attachment system itself, this is not a traditional MOLLE dump pouch that has two MALICE clips or two you know MOLLE straps that are built into the pouch. This is actually going to close over your entire war belt, combat belt, pistol belt, two piece belt. Over the entire belt itself. So that as you load the dump pouch up with magazines, with whatever else you wanna put in there that might be heavy after a while. You're gonna have proper weight distribution on the belt and you're not gonna be putting a bunch of strain on those particular little MOLLE loops on your belt or laser cut MOLLE in this case on the Orion belt.

Installation (02:06):
So the way we're gonna put this on the belt's pretty simple. We're gonna open the closure. I have an Orion belt right here. We're gonna position the pouch where we want it. Wrap the loop side up underneath, and we want this to be nice and tight. And then we're gonna pull the hook side down. And what this means is we've got hook and loop sandwich like this. That's gonna be pressed up against your body. It is essentially impossible for your dump pouch to jettison off of the belt because velcro can't go anywhere. When it's moving like this, you have to be able to peel away. And since it's against your body, that's not gonna happen.

Additional Improvements (02:45):
So now we have the pouch that's positioned on the belt and then there's another key feature to our dump pouch. We'll go into it here in a second, but that's these little ears, these little loops here on the bottom that accommodate a small mini leg strap, which we do include that also helps keep the pouch attached to the body and keep it from flying all over the place. As far as folding the dump pouch up, our dump pouch can be folded up into a small little pouch, I guess that's not open basically the way you're gonna do it is you're gonna fold the edges like to fold the edges a little bit. And the first thing actually you're gonna do is you are going to pull the internal flap. There's a flap inside the pouch that you can use to close all the contents to keep all the contents together. But this will also be the flap that we use to retain the pouch altogether. Once we fold it up. So we're gonna take the two edges kind of roll 'em in a little bit,

Storing the Dump Pouch (03:40):
Then usually do two folds, have it nice and tight, tuck it in, run the flap over the top. And boom, there you go. A nice tidy package ready to go. And then when you wanna deploy the pouch, you actually wanna use it. You're just gonna pop the flap. Pouch rolls down. You can then tuck… Either run the flap on top to keep everything inside from coming out or you can just simply stow the flap inside the pouch. There's a small piece of velcro inside that's gonna keep it in position. And now the pouch is ready to accept your grenades and all sorts of other weird stuff you might wanna put in there. As far as mounting our dump pouch to a traditional two piece belt, such as a competition belt or some of the newer sort of generation, you know, combat war belts, where you have a velcro inner belt, and then you have your slimmer belt that goes on top.

We are still gonna be using the standard closure system or the standard closure style, but the trick here is gonna be in order to have a tight fit around this 1 3/4" Ronin belt, we're going to need to tighten some of the excess up and kind of wrap it around the belt. At least it'll be once. So if I go to attach the belt, I'll show you what you don't want to do to right here like this. You will see there's all this, this pocket of air, and there's just all this movement that's gonna happen with the pouch that we want to eliminate. So what we're gonna do, we're gonna open it up again. You're gonna take it all the way to the bottom seam of the… You're gonna take it all the way to the bottom seam of the flap itself, wrap it.

And as you can see, I have quite a bit of excess on the top. We're gonna wrap that underneath to the front. Okay, nice and tight. That is, and then we velcro down with the hook velcro. And since this is a two piece belt and we want all this velcro hook field to be hitting our loop belt for adherence, we are going to remove the included velcro loop box protector, clothing protector. And now we have all this nice hook field right here that is going to help adhere this belt to the body. So now we have the belt is nice and tight. The pouch is nice and tight to the belt. We've eliminated all that air pocket and all that excess. We're good to go.

Leg Strap Instillation (06:01):
And now let's talk about how the little leg strap works Included with the dump pouch is going to be the small little bag that has some shock cord and a buckle. There's obviously a lot of ways of doing this, but this is the way that I prefer. I run one strand of the shock cord through one end. So now I'm gonna have both little shock cords basically together on one side. And then I'm gonna take the end. I wanna be tying off these two. I'm gonna be putting both of these through this hole, which they will fit. And then what we're gonna do is we're gonna be tying a knot on this end. And what this means is I have two, basically my shock cord is gonna be doubled up, which is a little less stretchy than if it were just, you know, one strand across your leg. Like, so, but now what we gotta do is we gotta size this to our leg before we tie off our knot. So that's where we unbuckle. Pull the buckle down. I can now see roughly how much I need. Tie my knot. That's not going anywhere, trim the edges. And then when I have my little shock cord leg strap, good to go. Thread it through. And I'm good to go, ready to keep the pouch nice and tight to the body.

Closing Notes (07:41):
And then if I need to roll my pouch up and I want to keep the leg strap from, you know, dangling around and catching on stuff, We're gonna open up the flap like we did before fold the edges in, and then we're gonna take our leg strap. And we're actually just gonna stuff it to the center of the pouch. We have all the excess, we haven't trimmed yet. Roll it up once more. So it's over the leg, strap itself, shut the flap. It could be a little cleaner, but it works. And now I don't have the leg strap that's gonna snag on anything, catch on anything. It's retained inside the pouch. And then when I need it open the pouch up. Leg straps good to go. I can put the flap back inside and I'm set.
