Organize your gear! The Rigid PALS Panel enables a ready setup of pouches and accessories, which can be easily pulled out of a backpack or bag and accessed conveniently. This allows for easy swapping of the contents of your backpack as needed, without separate items rolling around in disarray. The Rigid PALS Panel can also be attached inside a vehicle or used as a back panel for a plate carrier.

This is an all-around updated version of the previous Semi-Rigid Insert – the panel now has more versatile attachments and is made from space-age Curv Tactical™ material.

All pouches and accessories depicted in the images are sold separately.

  • Use this to assemble a mission-ready module for pouches, medical supplies, tools, etc.
  • Use the panel in a backpack, bag, car, or at home
  • Works also as a plate carrier back panel with suitable straps (not included)
  • Compatible with MOLLE/PALS pouches, 25mm straps, and bungee cords

Features

The Rigid PALS Panel provides a platform measuring 235 x 375 mm / 9.3" x 14.8" for attaching equipment. There are five columns for PALS webbing, but as far as rows go, it's a bit more complex because the grid of the panel is designed to accommodate horizontal attachment of pouches as well – see the pictures! At least MOLLE pouches sized 3x3 or smaller fit horizontally.

The panel has plenty of 4.5 mm holes for weaving elastic cords and two openings in the middle of the edges for 25mm straps or hook and loop tape. The panel can be cut with scissors if needed to fit into a smaller bag – but it fits, for example, our CP10 and CP15 combat packs as is.

There is a handle-like opening at both the top and bottom for easier handling or hanging (if you choose to use them as handles). If you assemble multiple panels with different setups, the handle opening is a good place to wrap colored tape for easy identification.

What is this used for?

With these panels, you are ready for various mission types without wasting time moving separate pouches and items in and out of your kit.

The most obvious use is setting up the panel with the items you need for a certain mission type, such as grenade pouches, magazine pouches, and similar items. The setup can then be attached as a back panel to a plate carrier or carried as a minimalist backpack by attaching shoulder straps (sold separately). The panel is also suitable for a first aid kit larger than an IFAK or other items necessary in less of a military-type emergency situations: safety vest, flashlight, batteries, etc. The panel can also be used for switching gear from one backpack to another as a single module or creating multiple different panels for one preferred backpack. This way, you are ready for various situations without wasting time moving separate pouches and items in and out of your kit.

Material and Dimensions

The Rigid PALS Panel is laser-cut from a flexible and thin but extremely tough material with a wide range of operating temperatures. Curv Tactical™ is a thermoplastic self-reinforced composite sheet – it is a lightweight, rigid, and impact-resistant material for tactical applications. In our tests, the material appears the same dark gray when viewed through a night vision device as it does with the naked eye – so it is suitable for use with combat gear of similar hues without having a distinct visual profile.

  • Color: Dark gray
  • Width: 235 mm / 9.3"
  • Height: 375 mm / 14.8"
  • Thickness: 1.35 mm / .053"
  • Weight: 60 g / 2.1 oz.
  • Operating temperature: -50°C / -58°F to 80°C / 178°F

This upgraded version is taller than the original TST rigid insert and it is much lighter. It fits perfectly in CP15. It is too tall for CP10 but should also be modifiable with a pair of scissors. Overall, I’m happy with it but prefer no modification needed for CP10.

Can this be adapted to fit an LJK 202?

It can fit inside the 202 LJK Daypack, although it is way too small to use it as a back support panel and there are no ready attachment points to keep the panel in place.
And to mount the panel on the 202 LJK Daypack would be impossible without some ingenious DIY solutions =D
This panel fits well with smaller packs, eg, Särmä TST CP10 and CP15 Combat Packs
