View Full Version : ILBE and MOLLE comparison

12-24-2013, 11:56 AM
I did a video comparing the ILBE and the MOLLE packs. I also show my gripes about the ILBE and MOLLE.

ILBE gripes:
-no PALS on the hip belt
-load lifters too low
-waist buckle isn't as good as the MOLLE
-not good with body armor (I don't have body armor, so this isn't too much a concern for me)

MOLLE gripes:
-frame too short/ load lifters too low
-not as comfortable as ILBE
-no pals on outside of pack

ILBE benefits:
-more comfortable with weight
-can attach lots of outside PALS stuff

MOLLE benefits:
-good with body armor
-can use external frame and suspension without bag
-can attach PALS stuff to hip belt
