Now that we have been delivering TransPacs with new,, narrow sideplates let me share some advantages. The original wide plate was a rigid platform for earlier weight pocket designs but as the weight systems evolved I knew it was time to change the plate design. After the new weight systems were out I could change the plate size to make it more tech friendly. It’s thicker and serrated so it stays in place without the aid of an additional belt slide. Yet, more important to me is that is takes up no more room than a normal slide so I can use it for a D-ring without taking up additional space on my waist belt that interferes with accessories. It also lets me move weight pockets around on my wife’s rig since she doesn’t have the real estate on the waist that I have, another plus for women. You can also put a rigid D-ring on it if desired.
