    MD Gear Pack made by someone on these forums

    I read a post last week about someone on these forums that makes a pack to lug around all of your MD gear, but now I cannot find the post. Can anyone point me in the right direction? Thanks.

    Hey A9, a pack is not necessary in my opinion. I gear up at the site and hunt. Heck I don't even have a carrying bag for my current machines. It's just another item to collect dirt and need to be cleaned. The vehicle is never too far away to grab a cold water out of the cooler and to swap out coils when necessary.

    Loco, pack might have been a bad term, fish1on posted the link I was looking for. My old infantry habits want me to have everything handy and Freeloader has made a very cool product, literally just what I was looking for

    Funny you should say that, my detector came with one. Also I forgot to mention that I HAVE to keep my stuff in a large carrying back because I have a 5 year old son. Anyone that has kids know if it is out and about it’s subject to being broken. LOL

    Sometimes my car is miles away, I love to carry out my trash and leave the place better then I found it. The “bag” allows me to do that. I used a back pack before and currently outgrew my Garrett cammo bag.

    Carrying out trash is a BIG DEAL for me. I see many sloppy detectorists dig up trash and leave it right next to the hole. Don’t even get me going on uncovered holes.

    I think that there are many styles of detecting I prefer a Custom pouch on my hip to carry my tools, cigars and other paraphernalia when I am miles and hours away from my car.

    Cheers

    I got the Pack Mule with some custom additions, it is AWESOME! He makes a very high quality product and was very helpful when I was "designing" my pouch. FIVE STARS!

    What additions did you make? I am new to MDing and the pack seems like a good idea, but I don't know things of things that I would need/want that would make it easier. Thanks.

    Read the 15 page post from the beginning and see what members got and why. It was very useful for me when I read it when ordering my setup.

    For example this was a feature I had to have now for you it may not be so important.

    This is what I sent him, "I was thinking along the lines of the one you made for RETIREDFIRE, it had the two zipper pouches on the outside, I would also like and inside zipper pocket, extra grommet drainage holes at bottom and an extra "D" ring. I am pumped about your product and ready to proceed." I looked at a whole slew of them he made and chose what I thought would make sense for me. I too was a (still am) newbie so I wasn't too sure what to get either. I got the two outside zipper pockets, on I keep extra batteries, small leatherman, Deep Woods Off Wipes, or Hand Warmers depending on weather, etc. I got the extra grommet holes as I am planning to do water hunting and holes drain the pouch quicker. My suggestion is look at all of his previous products for ideas, then establish a dialogue with him and he can offer some great suggestions.

    So going off your post and the other posted in that thread, the pictures there helped a ton. I ordered this:

    - Park Ranger in the color of Coyote Brown
    - 2nd outside zipper like post #216
    - Molle strips like post #77
    - Extra D ring like post #77
    - Inside zipper pocket

    The fact Freeloader will customize is awesome. What an amazing product and service he is offering! Sounds like it is high quality at a great price. Can't wait till I get it and it gets warmer to use it.
