MOLLE - Padded Hip Belt is rated
Rated 5 out of 5
Saved my shoulders on a week-long hike
I've been rucking for several years, both as a GORUCK employee (full disclosure) and now as a private citizen/GRT. I decided to take on a week-long hike of about 100 miles and the hip belt was a life saver. Really helps distribute the weight properly when you've loaded your ruck to the max. Not 100% necessary for standard GORUCK events but a game-changer for longer trips in my opinion! So glad to have added this to my ruck for this hike. Minimal additional weight but absolute sturdiness and quality. Was also able to position belt slightly lower on MOLLE and pair it with side pockets too.

Really helped keep the ruck from going all over the place and it helped make the event better! Semper Fi!!

Padded Hip Belt
The Padded Hip Belt is a great addition to my gear. It's made from quality material and it has a solid attachment to the Molle of the Ruck. I used it for the first time during a recent event (Tough) and it performed well. What I really liked about it was the option of being able to loosen the shoulder straps and just allowing the weight of the Ruck to rest on the Hip Belt during breaks and long rucks. Especially towards the later part of the event when the shoulders are a little tender from all the Good Livin'.

Okay, not great.
The padding on the belt itself is fine, but instead of the traditional molle attachment with either a snap or Velcro closure, it has the longer parts that simply fold over and get tucked in. This is fine for everyday walking around, but it falls apart when you try and shift the belt or push the belt down on your hips after having been doing pushups or picking things up, etc... Used it, but i had to modify it with velcro.Not what I have come to expect from a GoRuck product.
