A nice interior, but with some serious external design flaws
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 21 December 2021
This is a spacious admin pouch with a good assortment of pockets and elasticated loops.
However it has some serious design flaws that are likely to shorten its lifespan.
The biggest issue is the molle webbing which has been laser cut into the outer fabric itself. The material that you can see through the small rectangular slots in the webbing is the inner lining of the pouch, which is thick but also exposed and therefore more prone to tearing as it is only partially protected. Under wet conditions it is reasonable to assume that water will run into the gaps in the webbing and accumulate at the bottom between the fabric and the lining, where, over time, it will rot the stitching. I suspect that it won't be long before the Velcro on the face of the outer pocket begins peeling away around the laser cuts.
I am going to charitably assume that whoever came up with this design either doesn't do a lot of hiking in rugged terrain, or does so in arid conditions. Although in the latter case, a build-up of sand and grit behind the webbing is likely to do as much damage to the inner lining as a build-up of water.
The molle straps are removable, as opposed to being sewn onto the pouch. This allows them to be shifted around according to the configuration of whatever system you are attaching it to. Where-as most straps fold over in a way that allows the popper to meet with the stud, these straps require the end to be bent over in order to fasten them in place. It is unnecessary and adds to the difficulty of attachment.
An issue that affected me but may not affect other was the perspex map holder which was bent at an acute angle as if it had been tossed into the pouch with no great care.
I am in two minds as to whether the design flaws I have mentioned were the result of cost cutting or failed attempts at innovation.
My advice to anyone from WYNEX, who may be reading this, is that the less holes you cut into a piece of hiking equipment the more resilient it will be. Dial down on the over-engineering, sew on some webbing like everybody else does and you will have a decent product. There is a good reason why molle webbing is done that way. Because it's simple and it works. What you are selling currently is a structurally unsound prototype.
