I just picked up an Ion to mod, and want to give it pockets, make the waste belt removable, and maybe change to a roll-top.
I'm debating between three pockets, two side and one front, or one big wrap-around pocket. If I go with three I'll do them all out of stretch mesh, but if I go with one I was thinking of having a non-stretch portion in the center with a buckle at the top connected to a strap to hold down the roll-top closure.
All of the Ion mods I've seen have either had three pockets or one small front pocket - for those of you who have one, do you like that configuration? The benefit I see of one wrap-around pocket is added volume - have you found the front pocket to be awkwardly small and narrow, or has it been a non-issue?
Other thoughts or suggestions?
Also, if anyone has some pieces of stretch mesh they'd be willing to part with, let me know.
