The "Big Boy" Folding Saw Pouch (BBFSP)
Our "Big Boy" Folding Saw Pouch (BBFSP) is a perfect example of "you asked and we listened." Soon after we created our standard Folding Saw Pouch (FSP) I knew once I had a free moment that I was going to have to make a larger version to accommodate larger folding saws and various items. Well, one day a customer named Nick was just so dang persistent that I said ok, I'll make a couple for you to test out. I already had some saws in mind to base the BBFSP off of, but then I purchased a Silky "Big Boy" for reference and man that saw made me want to go out and build a log house. So, I made a few more BBFSP's to have a few more folks do some additional field testing and, well, we're finally ready to release it for your enjoyment.
Just like it's little brother, the Folding Saw Pouch (FSP), the Big Boy combines versatility and craftsmanship to provide numerous carrying configurations and secure storage for that essential piece of outdoor equipment - the folding saw. Our unique mounting system allows you to decide how the BBFSP is worn/carried - vertical, horizontal, via two MOLLE straps or with a shoulder strap (sold separately). On the lower front surface of the BBFSP there are MOLLE mounting straps so you can attach your own smaller pouches as you see fit. Further, just as with our FSP, you can run the handle of your camp ax through the "Scout/Horizontal" carry sleeve, but knowing that you may run a longer handle ax with the BBFSP, there is a "kicker" loop at the bottom you can use to help prevent the ax handle from moving too far forward or back.
The BBFSP can be worn vertically on any 1.5" or 1.75" belt such as our EDC or SHERPA Belts. We include a rather long cargo strap that utilizes a side release buckle with each BBFSP to help secure the lower portion of the pouch to your leg when being worn in a vertical configuration along your waistline. The BBFSP can also be worn in a horizontal "Scout Carry" style on a belt or slipped over an object such as our Padded Strap Wrap, a shoulder strap, etc... Additionally, the MOLLE straps allow you to easily mount the BBFSP to any other MOLLE compatible surface, slip over the waist pad/strap of a ruck sack or easily secure around a tree branch, ridge line or similar object.
Finally, each BBFSP also comes with two split back female side release buckles to aid with setting the BBFSP to be worn in an over the shoulder or rifle sling style configuration. However, the BBFSP does not come with a shoulder strap, that must be purchased separately.
The BBFSP securely accommodates the Silky Big Boy 2000, Sven Saw and other saws or items up to 16" L x 4" W x 2" D. That said, there is about another 2" of play in the security flap and webbing, so you can use the BBFSP with longer items as well. Though designed to carry a folding saw, the BBFSP also fits other items such as signal flares, walking sticks, water purification pumps, medium size flashlights, longer hand tools, etc...
The "Big Boy" FSP is hand-crafted in the U.S.A. from 500 DN Cordura, MilSpec webbing/plastics and DOT fasteners! Additionally, the interior of the BBFSP consists of a rugged rubberized material so as to help prevent punctures and abrasion, thereby protecting your purchase from premature wear and tear.
