For instance, if I’m hunting the North Slope of Alaska’s Brooks Range where harmful water-borne parasites are not an issue, I’ll trim out water purification tablets in exchange for extra tinder materials that will come in handy on a soggy and fuel-starved landscape. If you have a vehicle, we recommend you prepare an emergency kit specifically for your vehicle. The panel also features sets of elastic webbing loops in 3 locations that are useful for securing items like flashlights or chem-lights. The versatile webbing set up lets you attach things like these Multitasker Tools in variety of ways. I found that the MVP was great for carrying small pieces of survival gear – especially vehicle specific gear like a belt cutter or glass breaker. The slot pockets on the MVP are the perfect place to store relatively flat items like maps or other documents. If you have gear that you keep in your vehicle for convenience or emergencies, the MOLLE Visor Panel from Zulu Nylon Gear will help you keep it organized.

I carry a Leatherman on my belt at all times, but I also stock my kit with a lightweight Havalon razorblade knife and a few extra 60XT autopsy blades. You can kid yourself into believing that you to have the luck and skill necessary to catch birds and small game with log deadfalls or snares woven from roots. You just never know when disaster strikes so it’s important to have your supplies close by at all times. The panel adjusts to fit the sun visor via 3 large hook and loop tabs that provide several inches worth of adjustment. There are a couple of surprises on this panel that make it far more versatile than any other panel on the market. There are 2 sets of 2 loops on each end of the MOLLE panel and a set of 3 loops on the leading edge of the slot pocket side.
First, give some thought to how you will orient the MVP based on which way you want the slot pockets to face and the items that you place a priority on accessing.
In that time, I have been rotating various pieces of gear and combinations of gear on and off the panel to try and learn what works best and what doesn’t work at all.
The visors in my truck would hold quite a bit of weight and still stay up – at least when your vehicle is sitting still. I found that I could figure out ways to attach nearly any AA, AAA, or CR123 powered flashlight I own to the MVP.
You could even transfer the whole panel to your EDC (every day carry) bag or use it to carry several items that would be cumbersome on their own in the event that you have to leave your vehicle on foot. This, like every other design that comes from ZNG, show Joel’s gift for innovating a stale design in a way that makes it more functional, more visually attractive, and more versatile.


The branding that you saw in the initial announcement was actually just the ZNG logo patch.
Although it’s comforting to have good neighbors, country folks don’t typically rely on help from others. I’m constantly updating the items in my bag, replacing used materials and making minor adjustments according to where I’m headed. In addition to countless normal applications such as skinning game, sharpening implements and cutting cord, the sterile blades are perfect for such emergency uses as removing large splinters, fixing ingrown toe nails or even boring a pressure-release hole into a crushed and blood-gorged fingernail.
I do not store a battery inside the light, where it might leak acid and destroy the connectors and inner workings. I’ve used it to replace boot laces, to hoist mountain goat quarters into a tree, to anchor a tent in high wind, to secure loads to my pack, to get food out of reach of grizzlies, to replace drawstrings on packs and garments, and to repel down minor cliff faces and lower loads down major cliff faces. A knife and lighter as an example are perfect as together can be used to assist you in producing everything you would need in an urban survival situation. If all of that gear ends up piled into your glove box or center console, then it isn’t very useful to you. One side of the panel features 2 deep slot pockets and the other side has 3 rows by 8 columns of MOLLE webbing. You will find loop material in between the MOLLE rows and the upper and lower MOLLE webbing rows are actually made from heavy duty elastic! The set of 3 loops are long enough to secure even longer lights like the 3xAA Maglights and they position the light so that it can be accessed, even if the visor is in the up position.
I ended up taking pictures for this post in three different sessions because I was constantly thinking of other things that the MVP could hold. Once the vehicle is moving, an over loaded visor will begin to sag into your line of sight. Several methods of fire making like Bic lighters and fire steels could easily slide under the elastic MOLLE webbing. In my truck, I was able to get away with items that are slightly thicker like a small pre-packaged poncho, an emergency blanket, and a signal mirror. I also found this useful for storing larger flat items that wouldn’t fit in the slot pockets like large maps. There are other visor panels on the market but none with the amount of thoughtful design, innovation, and versatility that can be found in the MOLLE Visor Panel.
Rather, they prepare for power outages, floods, blizzards and other natural calamities so that they can ride it out.However, what some people fail to realize is how winter weather events can have a way of bringing preparedness, or a lack thereof, to reality when traveling. Gear is most useful when it is stored in a place that is easily accessed and well organized. Everything is reinforced where it should be and the materials themselves are all very durable.
Wrap the MVP onto your visor with the loop tabs facing into the passenger compartment (not forward toward the engine compartment) and attach the tabs loosely.


It is great for holding admin gear like pens and small pads but you will find yourself scheming about a million other things it can hold. You can stow a lot of stuff on your MVP, but only testing when the vehicle is actually moving will tell the whole story about how much weight you can really hold. That way, I know that I’ve still got hours worth of light if I happen to lose or somehow destroy my primary light. Some gear, like seat belt cutters or glass breakers, are completely useless unless they are immediately accessible. Finally, tighten each hook and loop tab individually until the MVP fits tightly on your visor.
The MVP is especially useful with these types of task lights since the red LED can be used to illuminate maps or documents without causing glare on your windshield at night.
You could even stow a flat folding water bottle like those from Platypus and some water treatment tablets on board.
The pockets are a bit too deep to store something like a business card or a parking garage ticket. Keeping your vital gear accessible and organized is the exact purpose of the MOLLE Visor Panel (MVP) from Zulu Nylon Gear (ZNG).
A chem-light positioned in one of the sets of elastic loops could be used to illuminate the interior of the vehicle.
It would be nice if there was a smaller business card sized pouch or a small slot in the side of the panel to quickly for smaller documents. What’s more, there are thousands of trappers in this country who use almost identical snares on their professional trap lines. The number of items that can be attached to this panel in one way or another will boggle your mind. However, I was able to simply wedge a parking garage ticket under the panel itself where it was held relatively securely.

Rather than learning about deadfalls from some old hippy with a beaded necklace who’s never actually needed to use them, you can study snares with a real guy who snares for a living.
