I am trying to do a mod to my chest rig; I have one of the SKD/Eagle rigs.

As has been posted on here before, the two center pouches have no retention straps.

This isn't a big deal if you carry two mags in each pouch, as the friction retains them, but if you try to run a single mag it is very loose.

I want to either fabricate or take from another mag pouch one of the elastic shock cord straps to have swen to pouches on my rig.

Unfortunately I haven't owned one of these types of pouches before, and I have no idea how the shock cord is attached/sewn onto the rear of the pouch.

Can someody tell me how the straps on the pouch below are attached in the rear of the pouch, or even better show me a pic?

Mine are wrapped/looped in the front around the stitching between the PALS loops like in your pics, ran through the pulls then looped around the sewing between the PALS webbing on the back and tied to one side

I think I understand.  I'm just not quite certain I am conceptualizing it properly.

What kind of knot is it?  Is the cord allowed to slide freely?  Could the knot move towards the front of the pouch?

Perhaps I should just order one of the CTD double pouches and strip it for the materials.

Perfect, thanks for the photo; that is exactly what I needed.

Making one of these should be too easy.

Yes, easy to do. Mine are tied also. Where are you getting the cord?
