It still bounces a little, but much less than before. Of course, I can't take the pouch off anymore, but I have no reason to.
The other option I considered was to run straps from the top of the shoulders over the tank, attaching to the bottom to take the weight off the MOLLE mounts and mesh.
I took your idea and tried it myself and it seemed to work pretty well.
I used one of the middle straps to wrap around the tank normally. I then took the other 3 straps, weaved them through the molle, came out from under the tank then up and anchored them about 3 rows up without going back through pouch if that makes sense. Seems pretty snug and doesn't seem to move much at all when jumping up and down. Maybe I'll go for a jog and see how it holds up long term lol.
Thanks for the great suggestion
