Fight and Flight Tactical is trying to bring something new to the patch panel. Their panel features a large loop Velcro surface, bound edges, and grommets for hanging. All of that is pretty standard. The unique feature is the addition of PALS webbing along the bottom edge of the panel so the user can attach various pouches.
The PALS webbing addition would be pretty handy if you keep your panels above your desk like I do. Pouches could be used to hold small items I need at the desk, the webbing could be used to hang commonly used items like sunglasses, or who knows what else. The uses for PALS webbing are nearly endless.
