Great, Versatile Choice for MOLLE Compatibility
This backpack is my choice for something that was on the smaller side and also fully MOLLE compatible. I am 5'8" 170lbs. My trunk may be slightly longer than average, but this backpack sits a good inch or two above my lumbar and waistline. This item measures at about 16" in length, so I was expecting this to happen; it minimizes chafing. This backpack does have back support; a stiff back piece is secured onto the backpack with MOLLE webbing. You can take off the back piece and still run this like a normal backpack. Definitely hydration compatible. I fit the short-wide 100oz Mil-Spec Camelbak system snugly in the hydration pocket. The MOLLE compatible versatility of this backpack is what I believe makes it superior to other choices: 1. This backpack has built-in MOLLE straps and panels for weaving into other MOLLE-compatible panels. Out of the box, these MOLLE straps are used to fasten the stiff back piece onto the backpack. In order to access these built-in MOLLE straps, you will have to unweave it from the back piece (not a con--if you're attaching this to a plate carrier, vest, or other platform, the back piece becomes a moot feature). 2. The shoulder straps can be broken down. Detach the buckles at the bottom, and undo the tri-glide (sp) at the neck area. Now you have a shoulder-strap-free backpack. You can integrate the nylon straps into a buckle system or MOLLE system to attach the backpack, or just leave the straps free and carry the backpack by the carry handle. Putting the shoulder strap system back together is just as easy as breaking them down. 3. The backpack can be layered over an existing system. Because the shoulder straps are relatively thin and shallow, they don't take up a ton of space on your shoulders. If you are wearing a plate carrier or other upper body platform, the backpack can easily layer on top of the plate carrier. Naturally, the backpack will not be very secure in comparison to a MOLLE weave or buckle system, but it makes for extremely quick attachment and detachment. This backpack performs well on its own, when partially integrated into a MOLLE system, and when fully integrated into a MOLLE system. With minor adjustments, it can be tailored to fit naturally into any platform, where other backpack builds may not transition comfortable from one format to another.
ProsHighly flexible MOLLE compatibility with multiple ways to integrate Can hold wide-style hydration pouches Removable back support
ConsLow real estate in cubic inches Shoulder straps secured to backpack with 1-inch nylon straps; may not be as rugged as backpacks with permanent-stitched shoulder straps
