US Army MOLLE Backpacks

The MOLLE or the (Modular Lightweight Load-carrying Equipment), was first developed by Specialty Defense Systems, and it replace the ALICE back pack because it was not waterproof and had many flaws in design and was deemed inferior for desert warfare at the beginning of the iraq war in 1991. It was replaced by a waterproof and far superior system the MOLLE. The MOLLE is much more abrasion proof and waterproof and can fit a lot more gear in it, and be carried on long marches comfortably with out constantly losing up like the ALICE system did. After all when a soldier is in the field his back pack is him home and it need to with stand virtually anything.

The MOLLE army backpack was not without its down falls as well it had a ball and hook method that did not work very well at all and often cam unclasped putting weight on a soldiers back causing some injuries this clasp method was later removed. The back pack also had a zipper when the packs stuffed full the zipper can burst. Also the pack was way to short to accommodate the holding of body armor.

Another model of the MOLLE was made for the United States Marines so it could accommodate much more weight and was taller to hold body armor and mortar rounds. Even though the MOLLE has its share of problems it was still a far superior back pact the the previous ALICE military tactical backpack. Many of the MOLLE or MOLLE similar designs are being adopted by British forces. Because after all when it come to soldiers in the field they need tough equipment to stand the harshest combat and weather conditions. There is a new version of the MOLLE that fixes most of it shortcoming in now in use in the United States Armed Forces.
