    This is a pre-announcement this time, product should be available in approximately 2-3 weeks in the forum store! Here are the preliminary photos, official product pics coming once we do the official release.

    I present to you the UFO:

    UFO: Uni-Flex Organizer (Universal Flex Organizer)

    The UFO is a ring of titanium with 8 equally spaced holes around the perimeter for attaching gear. When hanging from a suspension clip, it helps to flatten out the items instead of hanging in one big bunch. It could be used with a suspension clip as shown, as a zipper pull with 2-3 items attached for convenience (Isotope and PicoPen for example), or even as a key ring that keeps all items separated. It could also be used with paracord looped through the center. It's shape makes it about as versatile as possible. However you want to organize your gear, the UFO can play a part in making it work for you!

    - Size: 22mm OD (.866") x 14mm (.551") ID x 3mm (.118") thick.
    - Holes are 2.5mm (.098") thru.
    - Made from Ti-6Al-4V titanium.
    - Weight is pretty much nothing (2.4 grams).

    It's slightly smaller than 2 quarters stacked together. The finish is somewhat of a subtle stonewash, non-uniform scratches that give it a non-reflective matte surface finish. Seriously, this thing is so lightweight it is very deceptive.

    MSRP: $16.00

    These will be available in the forum store as soon as possible. We should be receiving the production run next week, then after finishing they will be shipped out to resellers. We are being conservative in our 2-3 week estimate, but do not want to commit on something sooner that is out of our control. We'll announce as soon as they are available!

    Now why did it take so long for someone to make that.
    Simple idea and it looks like good execution.

    I'd want it to come with a few of those tiny split rings. Looks like a great idea though.

    Nice!

    I have an idea for Mk II though. How about instead of the large hole in the center you fill it in and have only a 1/4 inch hex opening to hold a standard bit? Put some jimping around the circumference for grip and it becomes a bit driver when not being used as a dangler add-on. I don't know, just a thought I had, and I authorize you to run with if you'd like, free of charge, but sending me one if you ever make them would be nice. ;)

    Futuristic looking, it could come straight out of any science fiction setting :)

    Will it come with any kind of "main" split ring or not ?
    Saying this after looking at the flattened ring attached to the P7 in the pics.
    TIA.
