Keeps my gear organized and secured in place
I love my GORUCK Bullet 10L as a camera day ruck when traveling. However, other than a few pockets, it lacks any real way to organize my gear. The Greyman Tactical RIP-M fits perfectly in the ruck. The grid provides plenty of options for finding the optimal gear layout. It's based on the MOLLE system, but I've just used velcro straps for this load out. I used velcro cable straps to secure the tripod in place. Velcro straps on the camera bag hold it securely to the panel (the bag also holds filters, batteries and SD cards. Below and beneath the tripod are rails for complex panoramas. Typically I have the camera out and hanging on the ruck's shoulder strap, but it's nice having a secure place inside the ruck for those times I want to put it away. Now my gear stays in place rather than bouncing around in the bottom of the ruck. The beauty of the RIP-M is if I'm heading out without my camera gear, I can pull the entire panel in a matter of seconds and have an empty day pack … no more emptying out multiple pockets. Or, I can easily add and remove individual items from the panel … if I'm not planning on shooting panoramas, I can easily remove the gear before heading out, freeing up room for something else.
If you have a bullet ruck … you need this panel!
This is actually my second panel for the GoRuck Bullet! Why I have two? Well becauseI have the two panels pre-loaded in different configurations and grab the one I need each time! This is a medical configuration panel. It is VERY sturdy to the extent that I am wondering if it could work as an improvised splint! Currently it has a med pouch from ITS two from Blue Force Gear (multitool and flashlight and a small GP pouch) and one from HSGI (tourniquet and scissors). I have some other stuff mounted with the shock cord thingy I bought from Grey Man Tactical as well. Why I believe its essential? Well the Bullet even though it is a great little pack it lacks internal organisation, so I use the Grey Man Tactical panels for that. If you have a bullet get one … or three!
Slick piece of kit
The molle panel is awesome but I’ve found the tourniquet holder to be even more useful than I thought. I use it to attach tourniquets and strobes to my kit
