The MOLLE ( "pronounced", similar to the name Molly) is an abbreviation for Modular Lightweight Load-Carrying Equipment. MOLLE 2 backpack and backpack frame are embroidered with fabric to allow for extra bags. 5 ] The Current Assault package is being discarded in favour of a bigger medium-sized backpack.
Bags with different uses, which can be placed anywhere where there are Palse belt straps. A kind of "sustainment pouch" that can accommodate three caps. 1 ] MOLLE bags are typically used to transport ammo, gassasks, truncheons, torches, shells, cuffs, and pepperspray, and customized bags typically contain MOLLE-compatible gun mounts, drinking bags, and utilities bags.
Usually these bags are strapped, clipped or speed clipped. MOLLE is not only used to describe the Speciality Defense Systems' unique system, but also to replaceably describe all load-bearing and sub-system using the webbed pouched attached ladder (PALS) strap for securing bags in modules (although MOLLE is owned by Natick Labs, most use interchangeable MOLLE and PALS).
Derivates on the basis of the MOLLE fastening system (e.g. the Tactical Tailor MALICE clamp system) were also develop. Each system that uses and can be used with MOLLE fasteners in the USA is often referred to as the "MOLLE compatible" or "MOLLE" system. More and more civilian producers are integrating MOLLE technologies into their exterior outfitting.
In the MOLLE area there are three general types of attachment: the "Natick Snap", which uses a polyethylene strengthened belt with the " pushthedot" spring fastener; the "Malice" polymeric tie designed by Tactical Tailor as an alternate to the Natick Snap design, which waves together like the Natick Knap but ends in a semi-permanent fastener that needs a screw driver or other shallow item to release;
as well as a large number of articles that belong to the "Weave & Tuck" class, in which the end of a braided belt is inserted into the back of an object after it has been fastened to a waistcoat or package (Paraclete's SofStrap and Spec Ops Brand's Hybride article). One-inch (.5 cm) belt is fixed to the back of the grille at 1-inch (3.8 cm) spars.
MOLLE system was launched in 1997. The MOLLE system was the object of early criticism, especially from the army. Much of this criticism has focused on the sustain-load package and framework, as the outer synthetic framework is too brittle and can break in the box (as it has been weakened), the zips tend to pop when full, and the backpack strap is not long enough to be used with cumbersome armour.
2 ] The first of these systems also used a backpack strap-ball & pocket connection (which in itself was the hip strap of the MOLLE vest). These interfacing methods resulted in many lower back injury as the bulb (mounted on the frame) missed the hip strap base and hit the user's post.
The SDS MOLLE was subsequently redesigned so that the waistcoat (FLC) and jerk/frame were separated, non-integrated elements.
