Two answers and they're conflicting. See my point?
The IPSC rulebook actually DOES have a good picture that defines it well-- including a straight line drawn from the forward most points of the hips across each other, behind which all equipment must reside.
When I use that "IPSC line", my pouches are a good 2-3" further back than if I just index off the forward part of the hip. Yes, they curve around that much.
Even if we use #16 from the diagram, drawing a line straight OUTWARD from each point that equipment cannot cross is vastly different than drawing a line BETWEEN those points (flush across the front of the body).
