MOLLE thread (best brands, best place to buy, etc)

Looking into buying a MOLLE vest but I need attachments! Where do you buy your MOLLE attachments what brands do you buy? Brands to stay away from?

I run the V-Tac . It works great. It does have Molle and because it is paintball not airsoft the pods are better at the back.

Remember, after a game, molle vests are a pain to clean.

The real nice thing about this V-Tac, is you don't cook in hot weather like a fully enclosed vest.

I'll keep that in mind. I'm looking up how to clean MOLLE vests now

The trick I learned is to remove all the pouches off the vest and then good over with mild detergent and water. I prefer to wash it by hand - takes more time, but i know it will get really clean. For heavier grime, a good spray with the hose should remove most of it.

Something to consider when putting pouches on a MOLLE vest - use "speed clips" instead of weaving the webbing. Speed clips make so much easier to add and remove pouches. Blackhawk makes a great speed clip - check it out below:

Nice thanks on that. I saw another company have a type of clip similar but didn't quite understand how to utilize it. Leave it to blackhawk for making it super simple and easy to understand in 3 pictures haha.

Keep it Simple Stupid
