It's by-no-mean impossible to use standard issue webbing or plastic MSS (MOLLE Specific Straps) with a GREYMAN TACTICAL RMP (Rigid MOLLE Panel) but it can be difficult, especially if like me, you're swapping pouches and gear out all the time.
|PLASTIC MSS (MOLLE SPECIFIC STRAPS) CAN BE TOO THICK / STIFF TO EASLY USE WITH A RMP|
MORE ABOUT THE PROBLEM?
The GREYMAN TACTICAL RMP (Rigid MOLLE Panel) is 1/8' (4mm) thick making it super tough, stiff and durable but that does make it very difficult, in my experience to use some (MOLLE Specific Straps) as on one hand its difficult for them to weave in and out of the MOLLE and on the other hand it make the MOLLE ladder on the back of your pouch etc really tight due to the thickness of the MSS the RMP. so making it tough to get the MSS in.
I use a simple 25mm webbing strap with a tri-slide buckle, the kind you might use to strap a sleeping bag to a ruck sack. You can get these really easily on Amazon.
The Hot-tip 1. Is to leave your straps long until you’ve got your pouches attached, cut the straps to a reasonable length when you’re sure you’re happy with the set-up.
Hot-tip 2. In this case the MSS are permanently attached to the pouch, DO NOT CUT THESE OFF! instead just tuck them behind the MOLLE. The MOLLE ladder needs to be loose enough to be able to thread your new straps through as well.
1-7 Pictures show how I do it.
|1. NEW MOLLE STRAP THREADED BEHIND THE MOLLE LADDER|
|2. STRAPS INSERTED INTO THE MOLLE GRID ON THE BACK OF THE POUCH|
|3. L. SIDE WOVEN AND DONE, R. IN PROCESS FROM THE BOTTOM UP|
|4. THE WEAVING PROCESS|
|5. AS ABOVE CONTINUED, NEARLY DONE|
|6. WEAVING DONE AND BUCKLED UP - FINISHED|
|7. DONE AND DONE AND READY TO TAKE A HEAVY BOTTEL FULL OF WATER.|
So there we have it, that's how you use a RMP with some home-made MSS. Remember, it is not impossible to use plastic or pre attached straps but sometimes it can be difficult so here's the solution.
