5.11 introduces the mission-ready AMP collection of packs, plate carrier and mission-specific gear sets. AMP packs include 5.11’s patented HEXGRID Gear Set attachment which enables multi-directional mounting of web/MOLLE pouches, along with hook and loop attachments. Capabilities can be expanded and mission-prepped with various gear sets designed to be switched or transferred between bags and mounted externally and/or internally. The collection includes the AMP12 backpack, AMP24 backpack, AMP72 backpack, the All Missions Plate Carrier and 2 Banger Gear Set, HEXGRID 9x9 Gear Set, HEXGRID 12x9 Gear Set, Admin Gear Set, Med Pouch Gear Set and the Double Deploy Gear Set.
The company touts it as no longer being restricted to arranging gear in the simple up and down patterns of MOLLE. The patent pending load bearing HEXGRID system enables gear to be mounted at a variety of angles, allowing you to build your rig based on mission specific needs. The 12 angles of HEXGRID attachment allows for smooth ergonomic access that aligns with individual body movements. The plate carrier design also reduces weight, increases speed and reinforces load-bearing strength. It iscomprised of an ultralight modular plate wrap architecture consisting of an outer laser-cut and composite coated wrap, two-way stretch tweave armor bags and hypalon shoulder straps. The impact, damage and water resistant HEXGRID is one of the most versatile load carry solutions, designed for minimal bulk, minimal weight and maximum flexibility.
