If you have an old medic or demo pouch you wish was tear-away capable, then this panel is for you. The foundation is simple mostly consisting of a PALS webbing party and velcro. 5" TacTies or similar connection systems can be used to attach, however keep in mind shorter ones are fine to use for the pouch connection as well. Just in case you are still confused the idea is to attach the non-handle side to a platform such as a vest or pack. The pouch is then mounted to the panel piece with the handle and they connect with hook and loop. To further secure, a strap with an SRB is also supplied. As a small note, mine came in an odd configuration and I had to move the strap around to get it as shown. So come business time you can release the SRB and literally tear off the pouch. Functionality wise you will need to keep an eye on the strap and SRB while doing a quick tear as it can hang up on the handle. A possible improvement might be to widen up the handle sew down points to make for a larger pass through hole. A great example of a use for this panel would be putting it on the Maxpedition Merlin, yet is great for anything you need to with tear off capability.
