The intentional omission of molle webbing allows the operator a more streamline and lower profile carrier for use with a chest rig. This carrier can be used as a BALCS concealable carrier as well. In fact, this carrier has been used by operators that are using a CIRAS carrier and need the option of going concealable without having to carry multiple vest. The BALCS LBAV carrier with armor will fit inside the CIRAS outer carrier. So, you only have to carry one vest.
