Grenade Pouch Uses

Grenade pouch with Garming Etrex GPS and map compass.

What can a grenade pouch be used for?  Decades ago grenade pouches use to be attached to ALICE M16 magazine pouches, but not anymore.  Now, grenade pouches come in an assortment of colors and can be attached anywhere you have MOLLE webbing.  This means a MOLLE grenade pouch can be attached anywhere from the shoulder straps of a military surplus three day assault pack to a load bearing harness.  As nice as they are, what can grenade pouches be used for?

When the question of grenade pouches first came up I ordered a couple of them off Ebay.   At first glance they look like the old style ALICE compass pouch, just with MOLLE webbing and shaped a little different.  The grenade pouch is also a little wider than the old ALICE compass pouch.  This means whatever fit nicely in the compass pouch was going to fit loose in the grenade pouch.  Most people these days see ALICE gear as an outdated relic, and for the most part it is.  However, there are some old school diehards who still use ALICE packs, so the comparison between the compass pouch and grenade pouch were included in this article.

What will and will not fit in a grenade pouch?

Recent Survival Gear Additions

The Angelina River near Jasper, Texas

The summer of 2010 was not only a great summer that will never be forgotten (at least by me anyway), it was also the summer that a lot of new survival gear was added to my inventory.

1. Large MOLLE pack – after much debate, I figured it was time to jump on the MOLLE pack bandwagon. Instead of hauling my large ALICE pack around on camping trips, I have switched to a 4,000 cubic inch Large MOLLE. I miss the outside pockets of the ALICE pack, but that has been fixed by adding a Maxpedition clam pouch and a couple of sustainment pouches. The only thing I need now is an internal radio pouch, and everything will be good to go.

I have a lot of backpacks, but only 3 in the 4,000 cubic range – a Kelty, large ALICE pack and now the new large MOLLE pack.

2. Magellan sleeping pad – after sleeping on the ground for almost 30 years, its about time that I got a sleeping pad. The Magellan sleeping pad I got folds in half, and then rolls up about the size of a cantaloupe.

Back around 1995 or 1996 I bought a rather cheap
sleeping pad, but it was big and bulky. Even though I have owned it for 14 – 15 years, its only been on maybe 6 camping trips. I wanted something that was small enough to fit inside my pack folded in half, or outside my pack not folded in half.
