This bag screams quality in every detail. There is no part of this bag where you would think they cheaped out on this part and it'll probably break in a few months. The assembly is beautifully done, you can tell First Tactical takes pride in their products.

I got it as an EDC and after loading it up it meets all my needs. One minor complaint, the zipper into the glasses pocket is a little on the small side. I have a glasses case to keep my frames from getting crushed, and I can barely squeeze them through the opening of the glasses pocket. If the glasses pocket was hardened to protect lenses from getting crushed, or if the opening was larger the bag would be 100% perfect.

I fully recommend this bag, it is awesome, and I'm thrilled to call it mine!

Love this bag! Heavy duty padding on the shoulder straps. Quality gear. Lighter than the bag it replaced. Not sure it needs the gab handle on the bag as it has one on the shoulder straps just 2" apart.

~ Just received this pack and - "instantly" - changed out the pack from the 24hr RUSH to this one . . . .

~ same size as the the competitor (but) hellalot more comfortable and one important thing I noticed straight away when wearing it, that stood out was . ..its placement on my back.

~ I am retired military and in a wheelchair, so I was looking for a pack that didn't ride too low, as I moved about in the chair, was easy to remove, and could take a beating without any compromises.

~ I used 2 of the competitor's packs (sling and strap versions) and though they did the job, I still had issues when it came to back placement and comfort.

~ when I placed this pack on my back, this pack was noticeably more comfortable and the straps are just amazing! (trust me on this, former 11B here)
~ its a perfect size, reminiscent of a small patrol pack (and) fits great on the back.

~ This is the perfect size for my specific needs, the chair, as it rides (just above) the chairs sport seatback, so it doesn't interfere with any movement . . .

~ the ONLY thing I would recommend to this pack, is that it had another (line) of velcro real estate added to both sections (top and main) as it would then be perfect (imo).

~ Do I recommend this pack? - YES.

This bag is tough and screams quality. I own other bags that are "well built" but always seemed to be left wanting a better feature; a strap, buckle, pocket, etc. This bag gets it right. The shoulder straps are incredible. They're contoured and heavily padded. The buckle and straps are heavy duty and well placed. The pockets are generous and the smaller accessory pocket has the best interior chassis I've seen. The hook and hang system is genius. I can't wait to see what's next!
