An Even Tacticooler Molle Seat Cover – The Grey Man Tactical Rigid MOLLE Panels

A simultaneous highly useful vehicle accessory and immediate tacticool billboard, the Molle seat cover has become a must-need accessory for any truly tactically organized video. While eliciting the best insults one can level at tacti-tards, Molle panels are highly useful tools. Frankly, nothing is better at organizing tactical tools – which are all designed for Molle carry.

As much as I wanted to start ripping on Grey Man Tactical for being another “me too” product, the longer I was on their website the more the utility of the Rigid MOLLE Panels appealed to the practically minded organized professional and the more it elicited a fervet desire from the geardo in me.

Rather than opt for the standard Cordura soft cover (which I can attest moves around a ton), Grey Man Tactical has gone with a rigid system as the name would imply. This gives them a ton of flexibility, which Grey Man’s website points out in spades. By having something rigid, the normal single-use of the Molle panel goes and mounts to truly anything. I personally like the option to mount items beneath truck seats (which I may be doing shortly).

The Grey Man Tactical Rigid Insert Panels MOLLE (RIP-M) and its various sized cousins are available now from Grey Man Tactical. Pricing is a bit higher than I expected, but the utility is likely well worth the rigid flexibility.

    “Grey man”. Yes. Grey man.

    Grey.

    Man.

      nothing says low profile like an AR stowed to the back of the driver’s seat

        In Texas maybe?

        Nothing says “proned out on the pavement” like an AR stowed to the back of the driver’s seat.

      Took the words right out of my keyboard.

      How does having “Tactical Rigid MOLLE Panels” strapped to your car seats align with the grey man theory?

      • Cactus Air Force

        It doesn’t. Grey man theory is just the next “sheepdog” or whatever have you. Grey man theory just means “Don’t look like a mall ninja you dicks” addressing a problem many shooters today have.

    Unless your morning commute takes you through Mosul where, as our president knows, the bad hombres live then this is kinda dumb. Youre gonna have to put it in a case before you take it in the range anyway. And its an invitation for thieves.

    But yeah, it kinda looks cool.

      Diapers and wipes fit really well into GP pouches. Nalgene bottles (there’s a pouch for that right?)… Lots of those rolling around. A place to hang a first aid kit, tactical or otherwise, excellent. A place to strap all that miscellaneous crap that’s on the floor in the back of my minivan, great!!

      I don’t need a place to carry an AR all the time but the utility of this doesn’t stop at “tactical”. I had my PRs sew up a small panel for me to try hanging some organizers on but as mentioned, it wasn’t very stable with any appreciable load on it. This seems like it would work better.

      Only thing I’d add that may be nice is have it covered in loop.

        To each his own but I live on the east side of Houston and I dont leave so much as a dime or a text book visible in my truck. Ive had too many windows broken and id happily put a bullet in the next person who f-cks with my vehicle.

        • Jack

          Understood. I’m not keen on losing my dipes and wipes either. I’m assuming if someone did kit it out they’d be smart enough to keep it out of sight.

        • Max Blancke

          Better you than me. We lived in Clear Lake when my wife was in school, and Houston seemed to get worse every day.

          • TheNotoriousIUD

            As far as violent crime goes things are pretty good here but there will always be car break ins.

    • Anonymoose

      Just make sure you have really darkly tinted windows.

      • TheNotoriousIUD

        I do for sure but the law limits the degree to which you can tint the front windshield.

        • noob

          have a really opaque car seat?

      I guess it depends on where you live. This would probably be nice for our ranch vehicles. The trails are fairly rough. Everything not lashed down gets thrown everywhere, and everything not in a pouch or pack gets covered with dust or wet. I end up with a pack bungied on the seat next to or behind me, and all the stuff I need to get at in pouches on the pack. That stuff is usually binoculars or a camera, but sometimes firearms or a radio.
      But I would have no trouble or issue with a rifle there. I would not leave it there for a trip into town, however.
      The cost is what gets me. Something they sell in plastic ought to be priced lower than it would cost to make it out of aluminum sheet, including set-up time on the mill.

    So….being rigid gives you flexibility?

    Web-site note:
    a) No actual link to the Grey Man web site. Fail.
    b) Links under random words to BS sites. Fail-er.

    Please stop.

    Illegal here.

    For when you grey man, but still wanna pull up next to the SUV mom and show her how operator you are.

    Image 5 shows the smoke grenades hanging by the spoons, I have often wondered what is the best place for these on the way to the grocery store, problem solved!! Until the 7 yo pulls the pin and car fills with smoke. Good thing I have my tactical gas mask on the other seat.

    No thanks.

  • The Punisher

    If anyone wants one of these I have one new in the package I’m willing to sell…just let me know.

  • Phillip Cooper

    ” Pricing is a bit higher than I expected, but the utility is likely well worth the rigid flexibility.”

    Sooo… why not just go ahead and tell us what that pricing was?

  • Spade

    I want this for my Jeep, only because my wife insisted we buy a minivan as well and now I must fill my Jeep with as much as I can to make it the anti-minivan.

  • Sasquatch

    Behind a bench seat in a pickup this will be perfect.
