Ferro Concepts - The Dangler
The Dangler drop pouch was designed to provide a fanny pack add-on to your armor carrier. With help from LEO and Military professionals, we have created a lightweight, durable and flexible tool organizer to ensure you always have what you need for the job at hand.
● Mix of 1.5" elastic and 3" loop lining the inside to keep your tools secure pouch.
● 4"x4" loop for callsign patches or attaching chem light holders.
● Can be mounted either under the front flap and cummerbund or inserted into your plate pocket on most carriers.
● Compatible with virtually any armor carrier that has loop on the front and many plate pockets.
● Made in the USA
● Berry Compliant
(Check your carrier for the correct hook and loop layout if you wish to use the plate pocket. Dimensions: 8.5" x 6" x 2")
It works as advertised, is good quality, and was a reasonable price, so it gets five stars. I also like the angled bottom to avoid rubbing on your legs. It is, however, definitely a dangler. It’ll swing around if you find yourself running with it or leaning over, and is kind of awkward. I switched to a roll one for my ifak and stopped using the dangler. Might be nice for sse or breaching, though.
Ferro concepts is just very good quality, I'm actually much more impressed with SKD's customer support and shipping. Next day shipping as always!
So when the description said you needed hook and loop in the front of your carrier, what they mean is you need the scratchy part on the front inside of your carrier. (Facing back to you) I ordered this for their First Spear carrier, and it was reversed. So I had to seam rip, flip around, and restitch the hook and loop part of the dangler. Now it works fine.
The dangler I got was as advertised and it shipped very fast. Highly recommended and I'll be back for sure.
So far I'm really liking it, attached it to my Ferro Concepts Slickster plate carrier. I'm using it for a med kit for right now. I plan on buying another one for my Chesty Rig micro chest rig along with my other plate carrier and other micro chest rigs.
Never had SKD mess up my order, always arrives sooner than expected. Top notch customer service, top notch company, and top notch gear.
seems pretty accurately stitched and everything looks right on it. strech loop on the bottom perfect for TQ - or a 1911 mag if you are a boomer. Contents do NOT hit my groin under sprint or any condition. I have noticed anything in there does end up crushed/rustled like liberal jimmies. Crushed a few packs of smokes im guessing from rifle hitting it. No legitimate complaints really. I havent ran gear long enough to make a difference - but this is single stitched and not double stitched. Im unaware of the difference this makes - but it is a $50 pouch. The interior velcro is stitched on the top and bottom sides - but has a unstitched section. I dont know if this is by default or not but it stops in the same place on each side. im the type of guy to manage to lose something (my lighter) in the cavity.
It dangles. It holds things. 10/10 although mine came with a tiny pin hole near the hook and loop. Who cares though. Still does the job.
This is one of those things that you knew in your head you needed, but didn't specifically know, exactly, what that thing was. It's a cross between the soft armor ball-protector-but-hits-said-balls... like all the time. And a fanny pack. And it's dope, like super handy. I can't wait to put it through it's paces but for now I give it 2 nut-tap seal of approval!
