5.11 Tactical’s Combination Systems

Backpacks and bags for the hunt.
5.11 Tactical’s combination systems make it possible to equip the backpacks and bags in a variety of different ways.

All bags and backpacks are equipped with a Molle or back-up system. With these practical features, they can easily be expanded with the RUSH Tier system. The back-up system makes it possible to stow bulky equipment and/or to carry additional equipment via a Velcro system.

These combination systems allow e.g. large bags to be quickly attached to smaller ones. By doing so, 5.11 Tactical has improved the carrying comfort for hunters, and allows its hunting equipment to be customized to individual requirements. Another system is the Moab system. Moab stands for Mobile Operation Attachment Bag, and allows for the rapid and smooth connection of the individual elements.
