In Depth Tactical Solutions

If you are not familiar with Greyman Tactical’s Rigid Molle Panels (RMP) for gear storage and transport, you have been missing out. I have had other seat panel storage solutions before during my career and this system by far tops the others. They have two series of panels: the RMP, the standard made of high density polyethylene and the RMPX, made of powder coated aluminum. They have multiple sizes for various applications and methods to mount them in your vehicles, hard cases and even backpacks. Their panels are great for first responders, overlanders, prepared citizens, work vehicles or anyone else that wants gear organized and readily accessible. I grabbed two panels and set them up for 3 different applications. 

The panels come in all shapes and sizes and can be fit for any application, your imagination is your only limitation. They all have their molle grid system and several attachment points for securing them to anything you want. They have .25” holes for attachment bolts, 1”slots for webbing, .563” holes for QD mounts and even velcro with an additional adhesive. They have over 40 different size panels small enough to attach to headrests or center consoles all the way up to safe doors and trunk lids. Both series are made to be load bearing and sag resistant, if your gear is heavy they have an aluminum stiffener kit to reinforce the polymer RMPs. These panels are all hand-finished, weather resistant and made in America. There are several variations of mounting plates compatible with Greyman tactical rifle mounts, Sarfailand, G-Code, Blackhawk and Alien gear holster mounts . Plus blank backer plates to secure your own gear with screws. The beauty of these panels is that they are easy to reconfigure for any mission and come in any shape, to fit any space.

Rigid Molle Panel Vehicle Rifle Kit hanging on the passenger seat

The first version, was the Vehicle Rifle Rack, a 12.25” X 21” RMP panel and rubber clamps with straps to mount to your front seat. I ordered some accessories to hold G-Code mag pouches and Rapid Transition Interface (RTI) attachment for a holster or pouches. The kit comes with both a strap or D-rings with side buckle release to attach to the top of your seat whether you have a removable headrest or not. The bottom of the RMP is secured with an adjustable strap with side release buckles for easy removal. The rubber clamps are designed to be mounted either horizontal or vertical with the included backer plates. This method is secure for most rifles and is the most basic system they have to secure your rifle. There are other variations that have a buttstock cup combo and two locking systems for added security. The G-Code backer plates have several pre-drilled holes that allow you to mount any of your accessories either vertical or horizontal for easy access. I mounted up both rifle and pistol magazine pouches using the backer plates. The G-Code Rapid Transition Interface (RTI) can be mounted using the same backer plates and allow for changing out their RTI holsters. I also have a med pouch from them that has the RTI mount on the back for quick removal when you aren’t running a holster.

Rigid Molle Panel mounted on my Jeep swing gate using nutsert and bolt kit

After configuring the RMP for the back of my passenger seat, I reconfigured it to be mounted horizontally on the swing gate of my Jeep. Greyman Tactical have self tapping screws and spacers so you can mount RMPs to metal surfaces like safe doors and cargo spaces in your vehicle, but I chose to use the nutserts and bolts kit. The nutserts allows me to easily remove and reconfigure the RMP for different needs. Because of the surface of the swing gate, I was only able to use 4 of the pre-drilled holes instead of all eight. This allowed for a little flex on the ends of the RMP where the rear clamp of the rifle rack mounts. Greyman Tactical makes a RMP Stiffener Bar Kit to support heavier loads and limit flex. This mount freed up space for the everyday gear I usually have in the back of the Jeep and created ease of access instead of having to unzip the soft top to get to it. The RMP Cover adds a layer of weather resistance to your gear while concealing your gear from public view. It comes with an elastic rim and deep design to wrap around all your gear and secure behind the panel. There are 4 built in adjustment straps to pull the cover tight around your gear and keep excess material out of the way. There is a set of heavy duty nylon pull handles on one end for quick removal and access to your gear. The cover includes a 12×12 velcro panel for morale patches and identifiers or name tapes if you are into that. The cover fits a variety of panels from 12.25” X 21” to 25.75” X 15”.

RMP mounted in Pelican 1650 case

The second version was the #501 Case lid Organizer RMP with rifle and holster integration package for use in a Pelican 1650. This is a great way to maximize the space in your lid, especially with molle attached pouches to organize your gear. I set it up with the rifle clamps, G-Code mag pouches, molle med kit and added a Safariland holster using backer plates. Once the panel was configured, I secured it to the lid using the provided screws in the mounting points of the lid. There is an option for a 3M adhesive and velcro strips. Greyman Tactical has added an adhesive primer to increase the effectiveness of the velcro backer and there are reviews that this upgrade has held up in over 100 degree heat inside of vehicles. This might be the better mounting choice if you find that you will be reconfiguring your RMP frequently. The mounting screws are short and the mounting points in the lid are made of plastic and I would guess that the more you mount and re-mount the RMP, those will have a tendency to strip out. The only other consideration I would point out is that the loaded RMP does make your case lid heavy and will be prone to tipping over the case if there is not sufficient weight in the case to counter it. The screws seemed secure enough to hold the weight of the AK and loaded magazines without having to worry about them.

The versatility of these panels with the multiple attachments and mounting option create limitless possibilities for organizing your gear for easy access. Their molle grid is compatible with molle, PALS or similar systems, so you can use your favorite pouch company to mount up and store your gear just the way you want it. Or change it when you need or want to. 

The Plate Backers and molle straps remain flat on the RMP for use in a backpack

Final Thoughts: If you carry lots of gear in your vehicle, hard cases or even in a backpack, Greyman Tactical Rapid Molle Panels are the best way to mount and organize your gear. It’s the most versatile way to incorporate your favorite pouches and securely mount firearms and magazine pouches. Your only limitation is your imagination. 

Gear all packed up and organized, ready to travel

By the numbers:

Comfort – 4/5 Not sure this category is completely applicable, however when configured as a backpack panel the back of the RMP remains fairly flat for comfort against your laptop or back  and snag free for quick or easy removal.  

Durability – 5/5 Both the polymer or aluminum panels are extremely durable and weather resistant. Made in the USA.

Functionality – 5/5 Very versatile system allowing the use of common tactical gear manufacturers pouches and several holster systems. They sell multiple mounting kits for any application of the RMPs for a secure mounting solution.

Weight – 5/5 The smaller polymer panels weigh less than a pound and the larger aluminum panels are less than 4 pounds. It’s all the gear you add to them that will bring the weight. The polymer keeps the weight close to that of a nylon molle panel system. 

Value – 5/5 Greyman Tactical panels are priced right for the quality and versatility. They are just above the knock off prices found on Amazon and their aluminum (RMPX) panels are cheaper than off-road truck accessory company’s versions. And again they are made in the USA.
