Great backpack internal support and organizer
Great item for all the loosely packed stuff that goes along with me in my pack to the range. The ability to attach numerous pouches of different sizes helps me from having to dig for them.i can easily remove the entire frame from the pack and have access to the little pain in the neck items.
This molle panel works excellently for my purposes. I have it set up behind my drivers seat with all the essentials to get home. I run a blow out/Med Kit, HSGI Drop Leg Panel with ammo/RAT TQ/SF G2X, and a set of gloves. The quick fist mounting system is great for my 10.5" Pistol which is secured with heavy duty chain/padlock and maglock as well. My philosophy of use, is to have a side arm on me at all times, and If i need to get to the rifle, I will have time to defeat the security measures. I initially had the switch clip buckles attaching both the top and bottom straps to secure to the seat, but subsequently have moved to using a small piece of paracord threaded through the holes on the top to make an effective upper support system. I found that the buckles tended to loosen up overtime. Overall, I have been extremely pleased with this product and plan to buy a second set within the near future.
Solid product, some customization required
I purchased the RIP insert to assemble a modular medical kit for my 20L Goruck Rucker which I use as an all-purpose pack. The 12.25 x 17 RIP-M panel was a bit wide at the top where the Rucker tapers inward, so I trimmed the panel with a coping saw. It probably would have fit a 26L GR1 perfectly. I mounted a 5.11 Tactical #58715 Medical Pouch with general first aid items, an ITS Tactical Tallboy with a blowout kit, a Hazard 4 PCH-TRQ-CYT Tourniquet Pouch with a CAT-5, and a 5.11 10x6 utility pouch for larger items (e.g. Sam Splints, CPR mask, etc). The panel is very rigid and pouches with built-in MOLLE straps didn't fit very well. Blackhawk Speedclips were too tight for most pouches. MALICE clips worked but were really snug. I had the most success using the "Fight Light" Series Malice Clips from Tactical Tailor which are very flexible and definitely strong enough for this application. All in all, the RIP series is a solid product and provides a great platform that you can use for innumerable applications. #happy_customer
12.2 x 17 Rigid Insert Molle for Photography.
Fantastic. I can attach my video tripod to the molle. That way I don't have a heavy object 'poking' wear, tear, and a hole in my Code 20 pack. I have some molle containers attached to the insert. If I need a different lense or neutral density filters, I just 'pull' the medical kit off the rigid panel and put the neck trap I attached around my back. Makes it very easy to carry & access photography gear without having to dig through a big pile in my pack. This is one incredible piece of gear. I am telling all of my friends about it.
