I got my mine (in OD Green) on sale, but even at full price it's a bargain, considering the size, quality, and many features. This is called a 3 day pack but it's actually a 4+ day pack considering the capacity is well over 50 liters. It seems odd that First Tactical does not provide a waist belt, particularly for such a large pack that is expected to carry a lot of weight at times. However, they provide attachment points for using your own choice of belt so that's what I did and it works well. I'll still give this five stars despite the lack of a belt. If you need a very large, high quality pack order one now!

I've used this bag a lot for both work and personal travel. It is listed as a three day bag, but I have managed to pack five days worth of clothing and gear. The interior organization makes it easy to find a spot for everything. Just needs a belt.

This bag is incredible. It is very well designed and looks like it could easily hold three days of stuff. Customer service is top notch. Great experience with First Tactical. I will definitely be back.

I've used this pack for about 8 months, and it's already been with me to a few countries. It's got a pretty good size, it just swallows all my necessary kit, and i'm a 6'1" guy, so clothes aren't exactly compacts. It's pretty darn durable for the things I've dragged it through. Only thing lacking is a waist belt. I know I could get one custom made, but I'd like to run with what First Tactical has to offer.

The compartmentalizing is sufficient, not too much that I lose gear, but enough that i don't have to dig at the bottom for the small things. It's a bit warm on the back, but what isn't this part of the world. It's definitely much better ventilated than some packs i've tried.

First off I own many bags and use them daily to carry gear. I did some homework and researched prior to purchase like most people do. The quality of this bag is top notch. The stitching all around looks strong especially at the handles. This bag will hold plenty of gear . The size was described very well. The zippers and pulls are all high quality. I have not used this bag in the field yet but have confidence that this bag will outlast others that I own. First Tactical is a name that I will trust moving forward after seeing this one product. My next purchase will be a smaller version of this bag.

A great, large backpack that can fulfill many roles.
Out of all the packs I've owned this has the most comfortable straps - an absolute pleasure to wear!
I've also used Trekpak dividers to covert it into a camera backpack. The padded lining inside the main compartment is doubly effective for camera gear.
TIM SCHAFFER from SD on Oct 05, 2016
Nice pack but without a waist belt would be hard to use if fully loaded. Customer service did steer me in right direction for a waist belt. Matching color from Amazon. 1.5 inches wide but not a padded waist belt. Better than nothing. Hope to get one from TAC FIRST as soon as they become available.
Edward from Georgia on Sep 07, 2016
This pack is very roomy, and very well designed. Love the fuzzy side velcro lining on the backside of the main compartment. I only have one complaint. I messaged First Tactical prior to my purchase to find out what waist belt options they may have, to find out what waist belt the pack was designed for, etc. I got no response. I purchased anyway just to try it out. A pack this size, fully loaded, definitely needs a waist belt. At this time, I've not found one that matches the OD color anywhere. I'll probably try one of my current standard civilian waist belts in black, but it would have been nice to have a heads up and some direction from FT on this issue. I also think that if they are going to offer packs that can accept a waist belt, they should offer the belt or at least be able to direct you where to find one.

I'm about to take this bag abroad to Europe for several weeks and I already LOVE this pack. The pockets and design make it easy to organize all my gear and the compression straps are going to be great for overhead plane bins. I'll update on its durability after my trip, but I don't expect any issues. Only comment I have is that a hip belt would be a nice addition. I'm currently using an REI belt made for one of their external frame packs. It's great, but I would definitely invest in a smaller, more flexible, matching First Tactical belt if it was available. Overall, great job First Tactical!

I bought the 3 Day pack at the end of January. I'm with SAR in Washoe County. I was able to put all of my winter equipment in the pack. It's a great pack.
