Hello creative minds out there. I need help designing a chest pack.

I do grid searching on my Sar missions. I am constantly looking at the gps and compass. This slows me down. I would like to design a chest high shelf mounted to the shoulder straps of my backpack - so that I may view the gps display and compass heading -hands free. It must be removeable and you should be able to close it for fast travel. The compass and gps cant be next to each other or it will affect the compass bearing. they should both be locked down or have a lanyard.

My thoughts so far are a modified mapcase that folds down as you zip it open. I could add a rigid panel the attach the units to.


I could modify this chest pack, but it would be cheaper to make one.
