Heavy duty tactical backpacks can be confusing with so many pouches, straps, buckles and attachment options to operate, but the experts at 5.11 can show you how to properly assemble your pack so you're always prepared for duty.
First of all, MOLLE – which is pronounced like "Molly" and stands for Modular Lightweight Load-carrying Equipment – is a tactical accessory attachment system used to carry all your essential tools and on-the-go gear so you can ALWAYS BE READY® for what's ahead.
While all our tactical packs come pre-loaded with purpose-driven design features like adjustable straps and strategically placed inner pockets, you have the ability to add extra MOLLE pouches and attachments for your specific storage or duty needs.
Used and trusted by the military, law enforcement, public safety professionals and outdoor enthusiasts, our MOLLE products are built to secure items to your pack's exterior while giving you the freedom to adjust and customize your pack system for maximum accessibility and function. As we like to say, when you think MOLLE, think adjustability.
5.11 Tactical MOLLE attachments include:
MOLLE systems utilize snaps and straps to weave accessories onto your base backpack.
Tip: Depending on its size, your MOLLE pouch may have two slick sticks instead of one. In this case, repeat the above steps, working both sticks at the same time to ensure an even attachment – meaning, you should perform each step for both slick sticks before moving on to the next step.
Now, you know exactly how to assemble your custom MOLLE backpack with attachments that are purpose-driven to support your needs. Trust the pros at 5.11 Tactical, and you'll always be ready to carry your load when duty calls or your recreational activities require advanced tactical gear.
