Ok. So I'm wanting to put together a dedicated lumbar pack for grins and hiking around the mountains here in the winter. I've got a ton of random MOLLE and other pouches around and was thinking about picking up one of those MOLLE II pack belts that are so super cheap right now. Throw on a buttpack and a couple canteen pouches and a HPG suspension.
I've never handled one of the MOLLE II belts - does anyone know if it'd work ok for this idea? I can pick up a new, new-gen MOLLE pack frame for $10 or so too, so I'm tempted to pick one of those up at the same time to screw around with.
I'd just use my belt from my Ute, but I don't want to take it off and put it back on all the time.
Would I be better off getting a dedicated lumbar pack? I assume so, but I don't want to spend a bunch of money on this project, and I can get a new belt and pack for like $20 and I have everything else I need just sitting around.
So, comments? Ideas?
