“ACW Satellite pouches” (Sat pouches) are ready

Well, you won’t find this anywhere else…More ACW Designed and Made Gear.

Introducing our latest creation:  The ACW “SAT” Pouch ™

Compact quick release modules for stand-alone use or as “MAC” pack add-on storage. Grab-n-go capability with “ACW ®speed release system ”  [ Dimensions: 4.25” wide x 7.25” long x 1.5” thick (empty)]

Designed and made exclusively by us, here at ACW.   The “Sat” pouches are our answer to a smaller EDC module ( IFAK type size) and the latest compliment to our multi-purpose EDC “Mac” and “Mac-Gyver” packs.

Comfortably Attach 2 of these to your Mac packs on the left and right sides, for added mission capability and extended resources.

As a bonus feature, pop them off for lighter travel uses with only the contents you need.  Perfect for a grab-n-go option, adding medical/trauma gear, day hike essentials when the entire Mac-Gyver pack is not needed or whatever your fancy may be.  It is MOLLE compatible and has belt or strap options for a variety of uses.

Quickly detach a Sat pouch module and toss it to your friend, or drop it on a casualty care scene if needed.

shown below are the dummy safety cords with the MOLLE shanks.

Features our quick release system for fast removal (complete with mini cord dummy line for no losses).  As designed, the front Velcro tabs on our Mac-Gyver pack are received by the Sat side Belt loops ( left or right depending on your mounting choice).  Release these for access to the main Mac pack whilst still keeping the Sat pouch attached via the rear quick release MOLLE shank.

The Sat’s are small enough to attach to your standard gear, almost any belt due to the wide belt loops, or hung from gear with your choice of hooks using the Sat’s “D” rings on the top.  They are also large enough to fit a good amount of items, standard magazines, mobile devices, tourniquets etc.

Possible load-out configurations, and what we use in our vehicles:   Mac-Gyver fully loaded pack, flanked by one Medical Trauma Sat, and on the other flank, a basic EDC Sat with essentials for day to day conveniences ( portable device charger, cord, batteries, knife, head lamp, ear plugs tape, etc).

Other team members use various configurations, for example: A custom loaded Mac pack (empty Mac-Gyver pack) with a mix of survival, EDC, and medical items, and have flanking Sat module pouches with various items tailored to the end user needs, sometimes an empty Sat pouch that can be loaded on site with items from the main Mac pack, for a mission specific use ( day hike, job site needs), where the heavier pack is not needed.

So who & what are the ACW “Sat” poiuches designed or meant for?

  • Anywhere you would use a small pouch essentially (similar size to the Military IFAK family of gear).
  • Personal or professional use
  • For a lightweight travel companion, or add-on to your existing packs and gear
  • Use as a smaller version of some of your larger kits or packs
  • For those who want to upgrade the ACW “Mac-Gyver” pack with additional storage
  • For contractors, a car kit, camping gear, Bot or Girl scout personal survival kit etc.

Below diagram showing different set-ups using the Mac and Sat modules with our “Multi straps”.   2 Multi straps are standard with all new Mac packs, and are a versatile and useful feature for a multitude of uses.

This winter during a camping trip, the Multi straps were a life saver for just lashing extra gear to our main back packs, or when we needed things held around the camp site.

ACW “MacGyver” pack: generation II is on it’s way…

Well, almost have them finished but want to give some of our members a first view of the latest prototype of our Macgyver pack.

The ACW “MacGyver” pack: Generation II variant

Any feedback or comments via E-mail or in the comment sections are very welcome as we aim to please and support the best way possible… In the last several months we have been considering options and listening to our team-mates / members for input.

Our latest design is an improvement on an already great pack.

Here are a few shots for now…

Back view

Bottom view

Front view

Here are a few Notable adjustments and additions to the Gen II ACW Mac pack:

  • More “D” rings for more options to the end user ( straps, leg rigs, tie-offs etc )
  • Removable carrying handle that has 2 specially designed straps for strapping gear or the bag itself to items in different scenarios.  Also handy for a variety of applications and options you may think of.  Hey our middle name is variety when it comes to options.  The more possibilities the better
  • Removable back panel “stiffened” for more effective use in the field
  • MOLLE loops on sides and bottom for even more options.  Best yet is what we are designing to be able to utilize these as an option ( our SAT pouches, or Satellite pouches), more on that later, but they are stand alone pouches that can strap to the new Mac pack for extra options !  Not only that, they can be quickly removed with our custom designed webbing for lighter travel and mission specific roles when the entire pack is not needed.  The Generation II Mac pack can carry up to 5 of these pouches for a fully loaded system of goodies…
  • Overall size has a very slight increase.  Just enough to barely notice visually, but enough to make a difference in ease of use and storage
  • Webbing clips for optional shoulder strap or other gear
  • Front Velcro Tie down tabs for loading options, including the SAT pouches
  • minor interior adjustments and more

Note:  New available colors will include Black!

We want to give you all a chance to reserve the new pack, at the old pack price,  so we can forward a promo code when the new gear is ready!

Just drop us an email if interested
