New Pouch From Garrett?


Recommended Posts

Looks like Garrett has a higher end pouch with pretty much the features I was looking for. Wore out my others, velcro on one does diddly and zipper broke on my old Garrett pouch. Was some talk on one of the threads a little bit ago on pouches but can't find it. I was almost tempted to get some made up but this one looks promising so got one on the way.

Looks nice, let me know how it holds up.

I am looking for something myself and want it to be made right. I hate to spend money on something that isn't worth it.

Thanks for sharing the link.

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again Relic Elite makes the best pouches. You can get them with and without belts if you want to add your own belt. The guy that makes them actually lives over the hill from me but never met him.

It looks like a solid made pouch. I just hate when they permanently attach the belt.  I would rather have drop down belt loops so the pouch hangs just below waistline. Much more comfortable.  Ive tried relic elite pouches , a few different models he makes. Well made but did not hang below waist and belt was permanently attached.  I have a couple older leather pouches that are super nice and digger supply pouches are the best.  Here is a pic.  These are not only well made but well thought-out. They will outlast you.

If I had known I would have tried one. Post some pics of it.

Have him post some in the classified.

Will give the Garrett one a good workout so will let you know how it holds up. Zippers look bigger so less likely to plug up but time will tell.

The Garrett looks like a great water/beach/park pouch - I might get one.  I too wish the belt was detachable, though.  I used to tear through the Relic Elite pouches.  Sewn in belt would rip and other sewn in attach points would rip and then you're done.  A guy on Tnet used to sell custom hand made reluc hunting grade pouches (large and durable) to your specs that look very similar to the Digger Supply Treasue Pouches shown above - used top-end, thick material and no-snag zippered enclosures.  Those have proven indestructible and I still have both that I custom ordered nearly 5 years ago.  He simply stopped taking orders at one point and disappeared off the forum.  Shame because I had some ideas on a custom features I know he would have been able to incorporate.  The good news is my pouches are still going strong despite 5 years of abuse.

I'm thinking a pouch design thread would be a good one. Just gotta find someone with the chutzpah to make it. 😀

This is the digger supply pouches.  He used to take orders on the forum but became too big and busy taking orders so he found a place that would sell them for him and now he makes 2 models in several colors at his pace.  I have 3 of them.  2 pack mules and a park ranger.  Best pouches period.

Wondering if you got some when he was just starting out...I've never had one come apart like that. 

Kac the Relic Elites can be found on Amazon and Ebay...some of the bigger dist have them as well. The Digger pouches posted above look nice and I can see why some would want them to hang low like a carpenters pouch as it's easier to reach into.

      KAC started a thread to show a new and awesome looking pouch from Garrett. It quickly got hijacked by folks showing their pouches and F350Platinum suggested someone start a new Pouch Comparison thread... well I'm your Huckleberry! Let's see what you got. Pouch preferences preferred. 😎
      Here are some of mine... I know... I have a problem... 😆

      I'm always looking for new stuff to try out on a limited budget, and think I may have found an interesting new item.
      I like the Calces365 waterproof beach bag, I've been using it for everything for quite a while, but my last coin shooting trip to the campground took the zippers out on the bag, the dirt and sand ate them up. I trashed the finds pocket by zipping it more than 300 times in 4 days. However, for $13 they are easily replaceable if not sold out. 
      Recently I was looking for a replacement, the beach bag belt belt is too thin to hold my pinpointer and Doc's shovel bag well, it does but it isn't great. I came across the above rig, apparently new from Calces365. It's only $19.99.
      It comes in camo and black. It has two pouches Velcro-attached to a very comfortable and tough belt. One has 3 pockets, front, large inside, and Velcro-closure mesh inside. The other is a large trash bag with a mesh bottom and a drawstring that can fold up small. Velcro doesn't wear out too fast if you brush the dirt out of it from time to time. They should probably use self-repairing zippers but that would drive the cost up.
      It has a 52" belt that has one drawback, if you have to make it small the bags almost go to your back to attach to the inside Velcro. I'm tall but not "big". If they sewed Velcro to the first 8" of the outside that would fix it. You can slide the pouch under the outside if you want to, but you'd lose some hold.
      The belt can easily hold a pinpointer loop (wish it had one) and whatever else you want to attach. I know some don't like mesh in a bag, so you could throw a small towel in the bottom to keep sand from falling out, I have no problem with the trash bag getting lighter but it never seems to. 😀 It's about as large as I would want it to be as well.
      It can be found here and probably on eBay:

      I picked this up on Ebay for my updcoming trip west:
       

      I like the lightweight, compact design.  The overall quality is quite good, with the aluminum parts appearing to be anodized.  Shown in the photo is the central magnet assembly removed from the hexagonal tube.  Here are a couple concerns I have:
      1) Particularly when installed, the effect of the magnets seems weak.  I think the ad says 13 1/2 lb pickup force (however that is measured) but given the distance of the magnets from the outside of the hex extrusion when fully installed, it doesn't seem to have much strength.
      2) The magnet frame assembly weighs almost half of the entire unit -- 408 g vs. 430 g for everything else.  That's not so bad, but for hiking and backpacking, every ounce saved helps.
      3) The magnet assembly (when installed) rotates 360 degrees without any stop/lock to hold it in a desired position.  My guess is that bumping either end on a rock or vegetation (think of the black plastic ends as knobs) could cause it to rotate to an undesirable position.
      The design is clever in that in order to clear the rake after filling with iron trash you just rotate the magnet assmbly until the fork tines push off the nails, wire, etc. -- a type of easy self-cleaning.  However, I might be willing to dispense with that feature to mod it for stronger pull.
      So here's some advice I'm seeking:  Do I replace these alnico magnetics with neodymium ones?  If so, how many and how strong?  Should I stay with the magnets on the inside or just attach them outside, and if the latter, where?
      I should have included a ruler for scale.  The width of the rake is 10.5 inches (267 mm) and the tines are 1 inch long and 7/8 inch separation.  Each hexagonal face is 3/4 inch across.

      Does anyone know a way to dip in grass without the grass dying. When digging in my yard, I try to not kill the grass. But the circle of grass in dig always turns brown/yellow. I was wondering if there was a way to prevent this, or is this something that just happens. Thanks!
