    I did the 5.11 Rush backpack series but I'm not completely happy with the internal organization. Anybody have any thoughts on adding some internal Molle or hook and loop velcro to the inside to add some other accessories?

    I think most people buy the RUSH series for their excellent organization as opposed to Maxpedition- which generally has no internal organization in the main pockets. I find mine perfect. What is it you don't like about it?

    I have a lot of accessory pouches (both Molle and velcro) that I'd like to place on the inside of the bag. I know there is plenty of webbing on the outside for stuff like that, but I like to maintain the streamline design.

    they have the internal mesh pockets -can you place your pouches in the mesh pockets or take the contents from your pouches and place in the mesh pockets

    you can buy a molle panel and stitch or hang the panel inside.

    good question. first, get something like this: http://www.tadgear.com/shop.php?id=506

    you will notice that the molle panel has 2 straps on top. attach these to a pair of D-Rings sewn inside the 5.11. however, figure out the internal layout first. you dont want the molle panel flush against the rear of the pack. if you do this, the molle panel will eat up the space allocated for the eyewear pouch, and the elastic pocket at the bottom. the d-rings you can probably get from an old backpack that you don't use anymore.

    my reco is you sew the d-rings on the "roof" or top of the pack. say 1 inch from the zipper track. i have my sewing done by a shoe & luggage repair shop since they have the proper tools to get it done.

    one last tip, you might be able to save a couple of bucks if you buy a molle dropleg panel from the ebay stores that sell airsoft gear. just chop off the leg straps.

    hope i made sense man! have fun modding your 5.11!
