For S&S Precision, its requirements-driven design and these pouches were specifically created to fit the needs of PlateFrame users. There's nothing extraneous here. Everything is functional with a minimalist approach to take up as little space as possible on the PlateFrame and hold weight to a minimum. But this doesn't mean that these pouches are flimsy. To the contrary, S&S Precision has made sure that it will stand up to abuse in a variety of environments.
