Can anyone give me some basic info on how MOLLE gear works?

I was looking into getting some vests but i want something that will last, and I only ever hear good things about MOLLE, so I figure i would ask

did you read through any of the 30 pages worth of threads here
there is a LOT of info there

molle is an acronym, not a brand. it allow's you to put stuff, i.e. your pouch's, where you want them to go, to work for you the way you want.

you have to 'weave' the straps on the pouches through the PALS webbing

in most case's I would not recomend CTD, but in this case I would cause if the OP is not sure about this stuff, he might as well 'experiment' with cheaper stuff

hell depending on what he wants to do with it, the cheaper stuff might be 'good enough'

Cheaperthandirts molle stuff is FAIL.  I'm sorry, maybe it works for some people, but I've had a couple of the AR mag pouches go down, and a really worthless vest rig that kinda fell apart after virtually no use.  They took really good care of me on the mag pouches, just send out new ones no questions asked, but its still crap gear, no matter how good the CS is.

There's a difference between laziness and time management.  There is A LOT of information on ARFCOM.

Sometimes it is more efficient to just ask someone who knows the answer rather than wasting hours of your time trying to find a needle answer amidst a haystack of online chit chat.

well to those of us that are "regulars" here, it get's real old fielding the same question over and over and over, ( ya know, that waste hours of OUR time ) when 90% of the info that they are looking for ( at least the 'noob's' ) is right here in the threads.  just read through the thread titles, and see what one's sound like what you are looking for, you don't have to read them all, but doing that also helps cut down on the follow up clutter like-" Ok, now I want a molle chest rig, what do I get ?"

now, if after some 'research' of your own, you ask-"I want either a MAV or the SKD rig, what are the pros and con's of each" then fine, people who own them can comment to help you.

You guys are just so very, very mean! Your behavior may diswade him from actually ponying up a few bucks so he can use the "Search Function" available to Team Members.



Now you all go to your corners...








...have drink...






...and think about how you've treated our new friend.

Note to Self: Sometimes being a smart-ass actually gives you a cramp

to another question

a range master friend of mine took the time to help out a guy that wanted to shoot some of his full auto toys when the Fudds tried running said guy off. 2 years later the range gets shut down. the guy with the toys buys a nice piece of property and opens a new range nd hires my buddy to run it. sometimes it pays not to be an ass

HUGE +1

The shooting/gun owners society is too small as it is. Being the "knowitalllookingdownyournoseasshat" will just put people off and we'll all end up suffering in the end.

Skipping over a post that you don't want to answer is free and takes up none of your time either.  Most members on here don't mind answering questions that some"regulars" consider beneath them.  Who knows you can sometimes learn something new.  Maybe when I grow up I will be a "iknoweveryfuckinthingwhydontyou" too.  We need all the gun owners in the country on this site and there are better ways to make that happen than being a jack-ass.

did any one bother to notice that this thread was some 6 weeks old, the question asked and answered,and done with, yet was bumped
to the top for some dumbass reason, and the people 'offended' are ones that never or rarely post here

answering the question has NOTHING to do with being "beneath" them ( notice how I answered the question, with a pic ) and
everything to do with cutting down on REPEAT questions. My statement of read through the threads already here would-

1) cut down on repeats
2) get you on the way of being "iknoweveryfuckinthingwhydontyou" ya know cause there is a lot on info already here, all you have to do is...read it.
3) Who knows you can sometimes learn something new. see #2

This thread is hardly worthy of its tack as a "Noob's guide to MOLLE".

MOLLE and PALS aren't defined and there are better color pictures elsewhere..

I'm just saying....
