Tactical Duty Pack
January 02, 2012
[$50 mailed in the US. (Non-US costs extra postage.)]
This is a medium rucksack with a lot of mil-spec tech-pack bells'n'whistles. Its best special feature, I think, are the sizable pouches on the waistbelt. I really need to have access to a few goodies while I'm under way -- like: digicam, map, snacks.
It's a lot like the Super-Versatile Rucksack, only it's a couple inches narrower and shorter. Yet it still has a TON of features. The big Versatile doesn't have the waistbelt pouches -- though it does have MOLLE points for attaching pouches yourself, which is great.
Details: Constructed of rugged tactical polyester. Four compartment configuration. Key features include: One main compartment with large pocket ideal for hydration bladder or laptop computer. Front compartment with a multitude of accessory pockets. Secondary compartment with dual mesh pockets. Padded back panel compartment with pocket that is suitable for a laptop computer,hydration bladder or other items that require quick access. Modular attachment points on front and two sides. Fully padded ventilated back panel, adjustable & padded shoulder straps with smart phone case, heavy duty zippers with pull cords and side cinch straps,molded top carry handle and hanging hook. Waist belt with dual zippered pockets.
Generic Caveat: As with all Fox products, it's built tough, in configurations like the highest-level mil-spec bags, but on a budget. Due to the budget angle, they really can't be the "best" in terms of toughness. I don't mind. I love the features and designs and I'm not actually dragging my wounded buddies by the straps away from combat. They're great for outdoor and travel duty, with elite features at half the price, is my summary. It doesn't hurt to have a travel sewing kit.
