If you are wearing a pack with a hip belt, you won’t be able to wear gear like holsters, GPS pouches, multitools, etc on your pants belt. The new Jimmy Tarp’s PALS Adapter can be used to place belt pouches and holsters on your pack’s PALS equipped hip belt. They are fairly compact so keep in mind that you may need two of them for holsters with a wider footprint.
These sell for $14.95. Contact Jimmy Tarps to order.
