        Looking for a good OD Molle Buttpack. Can’t be probably more than 10″ wide but I’ll take all suggestions. Seems like the market is very low on dedicated options, a large utility pouch might suffice.

        Thanks.

          The closest to the original USGI Butt Pack is the Mayflower Jungle Butt Pack by Velocity Systems.

          The Mayflower Jungle Butt Pack is designed around the amount and type of equipment usually needed for long duration jungle patrolling. The Butt Pack is sized to carry a Basha (aka poncho – with bungees, line and stakes), broken down 24hr ration pack or MREs, canteens, light jacket, light sleeping bag, survival items or whatever else the mission requires. The Jungle Butt Pack is H9” x W8.5” x D6” and made of 500D Cordura. All materials and workmanship are 100% made in the USA.

          A scree collar
          Helium Whisper attachment system (zero water absorbance)
          Large diameter drain holes
          Top mounted d-rings
          ¾ ” ITW Fastex fasteners
          Loop Velcro for visual identification aids
          Webbing straps for attaching equipment externally
          Webbing on the sides for attaching additional PALs/Molle pouches
          Each Jungle Butt Pack takes 4 belt columns
          Dimensions: H9” x W8.5” x D6”
          100% Made In The USA

          Best price I’ve found is $53.00

          Blue Force Gear has a Large Utility Pouch on sale for $47.97.

          The Large Utility Pouch is a lightweight MOLLE-compatible general purpose pouch that boasts massive storage capacity – holding up to 9 M4 magazines. Pattern matched dust resistant zippers protect the contents.

          Applications

          Fits:

          Up to 9 M4 magazines
          Larger items, general purpose items
          Stripped down MREs

          Technical

          Size:
          2.5″ x 9″ x 8″
          6 x 4 MOLLE field required

          Build:

          CORDURA® ballistic nylon
          MOLLE compatible Helium Whisper® attachment system
          ULTRAcomp™ high performance laminate
          Pattern matched zippers with ZipLine molded rubber pull tabs

          The Mayflower Jungle Butt Pack would be better if your looking for a modern “old school” jungle loadout.

          The Large Utility Pouch would be better if you want a more streamlined close to your body, but still have good capacity.

          Just my thoughts, just remember it’s easy to get too loaded down.
