The pack is a GORUCK GR0. With the MOLLE on the sides, the holders fit perfect. Still leaving room for my waist belt if needed. They fit great. Everything was going well, until I added full water bottles.
These are the smaller 20oz bottles. The problem I'm having is that the holders don't attach to the MOLLE all the way up. And the bottles raise up quite a bit past the top MOLLE strap. This causes the holders and bottles to flop around quite a bit. Both fore and aft. Even worse, they lean out away from the pack. This causes me to smack them on shit I would have thought I was no where near hitting. In essence, it widens my overall profile.
They're definitely secured well. The bottles are not coming off. They're quiet when moving around (unless I smack shit). But I can feel them moving. I'd much prefer they were tighter against the pack.
So, other than a quasi review, I'm wondering a few things.
1. First, did I do something stupid to cause this? I'm pretty sure they're on correctly and adjusted as well as can be according to design. But you never know.
2. Has anyone else run into this? Did you make any mods to deal with it? Is it not as big a deal as I'm making it?
3. Even if you don't have these, any suggestions? I'd do mods, but not any that permanently change the pack. Holders I don't care if they're permanently modified. Pack I do.
I'll add some pics that hopefully show what I'm talking about and the full range of motion the holders have while "secured."
