It all started with the desire to create a technologically advanced modular backpack that would be absolutely self-sufficient in its basic configuration and at the same time could be upgraded with modules taking into account your circumstances and needs. And as it turned out later, this was not a trivial task at all. Moreover, to create a line of three such backpacks with interchangeable modules. For some time, we were sorting out possible options for fastening and rested either on patents, or on the high cost of implementation, or on cool functionality with a crooked design. Ultimately, we decided to take the most versatile modular system M.O.L.L.E. (Modular Lightweight Load-carrying Equipment) and on its basis create our own system that would meet all our needs.
At its core, M.O.L.L.E. This is a system for attaching equipment to a nylon tape sewn with a ladder, which is used in the armed forces of different countries. It is simple, versatile and allows you to attach your equipment as you like, anywhere and in any combination. But it was developed by the military for the military and that says it all - the functionality is at its best, but the design is ... .. In the SNAP modular system, we tried to preserve the functionality of the M.O.L.L.E. system as much as possible. and pack it into the futuristic design of our backpacks. In order to protect the backpack from horizontally sewn nylon ribbons that run counter to its vertical orientation, we have changed their direction. The vertically sewn ribbons entailed a change in the fastening system installed on the modules. To fasten the modules, we use plastic fasteners, which are fixed in the closed position with a metal bracket. We pre-modify these fasteners for more comfortable opening / closing.
Our system also works in the horizontal plane. For such fastening of modules, we use hinges that work in conjunction with hooks. The modules are fastened with a clasp to the loop, and on the opposite side they are fixed with a hook. The hooks do not visually overload the backpack, since they can be hidden in special pockets or simply unfastened (depending on the model). Loops with hooks can be used not only for attaching modules, but also for attaching various things that do not fit in a backpack or should always be at hand.
All these innovations allowed us to create a modular backpack, which in its basic configuration does not look as if we saved on it, did not report something, did not like it somewhere, and in order for it to look full, it needs to be dressed up with modules like a Christmas tree. And as it seems to us, we managed to make design and functionality friends. In general, we were satisfied with the result, we hope you will appreciate it too. If it seems to you that we have overlooked something, have not completed something, have not improved, have not thought or thought of something, write to us about it in any of the communication channels. We are only looking forward to new ideas and suggestions.
