Made by Morion Thread Works, no website but they do have a Facebook Page
Morion Thread Works is a one man show with Richard Haddow being that one man.
This pouch was sent to me instead of a refund on my previous purchase of a Grenade Pouch.
I’d been toying with buying one of these or the Grenade pouch for my first ‘test’ purchase.
Now I don’t have to.
It’s a lot better looking in the flesh than it does on both MTWs site and Facebook page.
The pouch itself is made from 500D Crye Multicam, with 40mm Murdock woven multicam webbing providing the lid and base reinforcement.
There is some 25mm Multicam elastic sewn across the front providing retention and to keep things neat when empty.
It has 25mm olive webbing forming the MOLLE.
A point to note on the MOLLE and this is where Richard may have missed a trick.
Unlike most of its type this pouch has been designed to fit on three rows of PALS as opposed to the ‘normal’ two.
Not a deal breaker as it can be bodged to fit onto two rows if necessary.
The ends of the MOLLE columns are hidden so there are no raw edges showing to give an unfinished look.
The ‘cup’ of the pouch is again finished off by a double fold over hem giving it a neat appearance.
All products are made using material that adhere to US, UK & EU military specifications.
I’ve not been able to trial the fit of a pistol mag into it as, for some reason I’ve none to hand…
As stated earlier, I didn’t pay for this, however, it’s quality is better than what I would expect to get after paying only £12:00
The crux of the matter, would I recommend this pouch to others?
Yes, it’s robust and well made as well as looking good and we all know looks are important.
Will I be buying more from MTW?
Quite probably, whether I need it or not.
A nice, simple well-designed pouch, which belies the complexity of its production.
A small niggle is the elastic retention, I personally think it would be better at midway point of the pouch rather that the top.
- Cost – £££: £12.00 it won’t break the bank.
- Value for money 1-5: 4, it’s relatively cheap.
- Ease of use 1-5: 4, simple Velcro closure, fitting three rows instead of two loses it a point.
- Construction 1-5: 5, can’t fault it, no loose threads that I can find and it’s robust.
- Allyness 1-5: 4, it looks good with the woven Multicam webbing.
