When you’re in the field, you can’t be left wishing you had more gear. That’s why understanding what MOLLE system options you have is so important.
If you need a primer, MOLLE stands for Modular Lightweight Load-Carrying Equipment. It’s a system that gives your gear the ability to extend its storage or modulations, and is easily identified by the webbing on the outside of the gear. This webbing is called PALS webbing— Pouch Attachment Ladder System.
For those on duty, these systems, or MOLLE attachments, can help provide easy and secure ways to attach a variety of important tools like magazine pouches, first aid kits and tactical knives. To help, we’ve listed some of the best MOLLE gear for use while on duty.
