    I have a Zeagle Ranger with the 16lbs (8lbs on each side) weight system on back moved to the upper cam band.

    My concern is this. The pouch is designed with velcro on top and bottom. This is to make the rear weight dumpable I guess.

    The 8 lbs barely fits in the pouch and I am concerned about the security of this setup. I was considering installing some 1" webbing with a snap clip.

    Any thoughts?

    What would be the best way to secure this to the pouch?

    Thanks

    Put less weight in the rear pouches so they close happily

    OMG. Round peg, square hole. Doh! Your logic is unimpeachable.
