molle straps....

Unread postby crankn101 » Mon Nov 10, 2014 5:33 am

Would the molle straps be a better option versus strapping my stand to my pack?

It goes together easy and quiet for me but it seems as if the weight is far off my back and pulls on my shoulders pretty bad.

I love the Molle straps on my Summit Goliath. They really distribute the weight very well and it cuts the felt weight in half.

To carry my gear I use the Leech treestand pack. The pack is well made and works as advertised. I had to made strap extensions for the "bedroll" on the bottom to allow me to carry heavier outer gear once the weather changes and get colder. I called Gameplan gear and the sent me out the extra buckles and strap material at no cost so I could make the extensions

I use the straps and waist belt. I would say they work well!

I am very happy with it. When I really load it up I use the tree strap around the bottom platform of my Summit for some extra stability.

Yes the Molle straps are the way to go. There is no comparison between them and the factory or padded straps the treestands manufacturer offer.
