RCS ModuLoader Frames Are Meant For HSGI Tacos

Raven Concealment Systems prepared this graphic to explain that their new ModuLoader Frames are intended specifically for use with the HSGI family of TACOs.

They also provided this clarification:

Frames are made to work specifically with HSGI Taco pouches. Taco pouches have a number of features that work with the Frames to hold the pouch in place. All Taco pouches have three horizontal rows of 1″ webbing with no space in between the rows. The Taco pouches for rifle magazines are tacked down the center of these three rows to create two separate channels. On the Taco pouches, by selecting which two rows of webbing you pass the Frame through will allow you to adjust the ride height of the Taco.

If you want to use another type or brand of pouch on the Frames, the pouch must have AT LEAST two rows of 1″ webbing WITH NO SPACE IN BETWEEN THEM. Rifle mag carriers must also be tacked down the center to create two channels. Many MOLLE/PALS pouches do not have these features and thus will not mount correctly to the Frames.

Additionally, the HSGI Taco pouches are sewn with very tight tolerances. One of the main complaints about Tacos is that they are very difficult to mount to a MOLLE platform, and much of that difficulty is due to how tightly the PALS channels are sewn. To work with the Taco pouches, the fingers on the Frames were spaced at one inch intervals instead of 1 1/8″ or 1 1/2″. While this spacing fits the Tacos perfectly, it is too close together to match up with most other pouches.

Most of the other types of pouches we tried on the Frame had a tendency to slide around (either vertically or horizontally) because of the more generous spacing of the MOLLE/PALS interface. Also, most other types of pouches are wider than the Tacos due to their construction. This makes fitting more than one pouch on a frame side by side less than ideal.
