I have more pouches than my wife has purses, and I've settled on it as my favorite. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8Ay8h135f_s&t=184s

Chris,
Any issues or things that you wish were added or different? I have the ability to manufacture items similar to this and before I made one for myself, I thought I would see if improvements were needed.
Thanks

I have been using the smaller park ranger version and really like it. It’s also held up well and still looks like new since getting it for Christmas last year.

I have both the pack mule and the park ranger. Great pouches and made to last. My mule is about 6 years old now with a few hundred hunts of use and abuse. Not even one stitch has come apart in that time.

I’m using the relic elite by omega mill I like it had just about a full year now. The clip did break early on but I replaced with a stronger one for 4 bucks.

I've been using the Packmule for several months now and really like it. Do not regret the purchase.

The Digger Supply Pack Mule is a quality pouch. I've been using one for about 14 months. The only changes I would make are to the belt loops and the drain grommets on the main pouch.

In my opinion, the belt loops should be made of a heavier material. The ones on mine are showing signs of wear. I don't think they would be difficult to replace if/when required.

The drain grommet issue is probably more of a personal preference. I don't use this pouch in the water, so I don't need to have a continuous drain. I find it frustrating to have dirt and sand spilling out when placing the pouch in my vehicle. Luckily, the grommets are easily sealed with hot glue, which has solved the problem for me.

Have used a pack mule for about a year and a half. Great pouch, sturdy well built. Most likely the last pouch I will need to buy. If I had one thing to change I would put a stiffener in the outer rim of the main pouch. It tends to collapse to the inside when you go to put something in it. One day if I ever get around to it I intend to try and modify it. My two cents. Mark
