Best way to organize your gear
This insert hands down, is the best thing you can buy if you’re a gear nut and like things organized. For me it’s to organize my EDC gear, range equipment and hiking essentials. It’s super sturdy, not too much flex, but enough so when it’s on your back, it contours to you. It’s all stored in a GR1 ruck bag. I have mine setup with, starting from top to bottom, a DARK Angel Gen 3 IFAK, MSM bottle corset, 5.11 6x6 med pouch, and a 5.11 10x6 accessory pouch. Having the insert beats the hell out of digging through your bag to find something. The convenience of pulling it out and everything comes out seamlessly, best bang for your buck.
Makes the GR1 even better
This panel fits the Goruck GR1 perfectly. Trade out the non-standard Goruck MOLLE at the top for this panel, and your bag can do anything. My setup (pictured) uses the panel, and then holds most of what I want quick access to at the top of the panel: a Maxpedition SOP for audio gear (Bluetooth headsets), a dual mag holster for my glasses and sunglasses, a phone holster, and a water bottle. In the photo, you probably can't see the mag holsters - I attached the phone holster and water bottle to their front webbing. Instead of all that "immediate access" stuff floating to the bottom of the bag, it's all readily accessible just by unzipping the top zipper, and it stays put so there's no fishing around. Down at the bottom, I have a tech carrier that holds all my charging cords and laptops, and the GR1 folds flat making it super-easy to get to. Another benefit of the panel is that if I want to get at the iPad in the ruck sleeve, I just reach behind the panel and everything is out of the way. It's so much better than I believed it would be that I'm considering buying extra panels so that I can have a "work" panel with EDC and a "hiking" panel when I want to do something off the beaten path. Then swapping out the mission is a matter of swapping out the panel, and it's super quick!
Great for GR1
“I use this RIP for my GR1 in the field and for storage. It’s keeps everything in the right spot so there’s no scrambling to find tools when you need them immediately. The RIP allows for increased rigidity and versatility in what you carry. Pictured is the RIP-M 10.75x19, Vedder LightTuck Kydex (storm grey) ITW holster, Sig P224, Leatherman, two off-market pouches, double mag holder and grab strap with room to spare. Highly recommended piece of kit that was coupled with excellent service.”
