Pros: Great quality build with quality material. I have not had one tear or rip in the fabric. The grab handles on the top and sides prove very applicable if you have to grab the bag and move out quickly. The side pockets are large enough to hold a large Nalgene bottle and the bottom pouch is large enough for any accessories you take with you.
There are plenty of pouches and room for me to keep everything I need for a 4-day trip, to include the Laptop computer I put in the main compartment. I am extremely pleased with this bag and expect it to last me years, even after this rotation to the 'Stan
Cons: The pull-tabs on the zippers break off. Easy enough to fix with some 550 cord or any other type of cord. Here's the reason I removed one star. The flap that covers the zippers for protection always, and I mean always gets in the way of the zipper and gets caught up in the zipper when I'm in a hurry. It is almost impossible to zip this thing up in a hurry. The design of the zipper flap sucks and is more of an irritation of mine than it is prohibiting the function of the bag.
The Condor 3-Day Assault Pack is a pretty large 3038 cubic inch or 50 liter internal frame pack, with 7 generous compartments and a ton of pockets, pouches and tie downs to keep things organized.
This pack is made out of 1000-Denier, water and wear resistant nylon - which is regarded as one of the most rugged backpack shell materials.
~NOW LETS TALK ABOUT THE SHOULDER STRAPS:
Comfort is key when selecting a pack that COULD be strapped on your back for days, and maybe weeks....
At their widest point the shoulder straps are about 3 1/2 inches or 8 1/4 centimeters wide and the padding is nearly 3/4 or an inch or 1.8 centimeters thick...so these straps are not likely to cut into your shoulders.
The front of the straps are designed with a multitude of gear carrying options including: horizontal clip on straps, D Rings and vertical MOLLE webbing.
As the Shoulder straps begin to taper and contour we have a chest or sternum strap.
The sternum strap helps prevent your shoulders from being pulled back from the pack weight, they also keep the shoulder straps from shifting around and generally help kept the pack load distributed properly.
I really like that the sternum strap is adjustable both up and down AND side to side to match a wide variety of body sizes.
Now on the back of the pack we have about a quarter inch of padding and on top of this padding we have 4 strategically placed padded areas that are raised nearly 3/8ths of an inch or about 9.5 millimeters...
And we have a pretty serious lumbar pad that is raised nearly 3/4 of an inch or 20 millimeters which is part of the hip belt assembly.
All of these pads are double stitched for strength and covered in a finer weave of nylon that repels moisture and sweat and stays pretty dry.
The Condor 3-Day Assault Pack's serious padding and lumbar support make it very comfortable to wear... and these raised pads maintain a buffer zone of air flow between the pack and the back that really helps to keep perspiration down.
Now this hip belt is about the most comfortable that I've worn. It secures firmly and adjusts using a strap that's 2 inches or 5 centimeters thick...
Hip belts are important for a larger bags that may be worn for extended periods (like a bug out bag) because they can transfer 80% to 90% of a pack's weight to your center of gravity reducing strain on your shoulder and back.
It's pretty amazing but the hip belt adjusts to waists from about 26 inches or 63 centimeters up to around 54 inches or 137 centimeters!
There's also an additional hip belt adjustment strap on each side, which allows you to make fine adjustments to the belt...
~POCKET FOR HYDRATION BLADDERS:
Okay... now on the back of the pack we have large zipper pocket that Condor says can fit up to 2 - 3 liter hydration bladders... The hydration bladders are secured in the pocket with two Velcro hangers toward the top.
And just in case a full bladder is damaged, there is a grommeted drainage hole in the bottom of this compartment so all your stuff in this pack doesn't get wet.
If you don't use this pocket for a hydration system... it's a great spot to pack some extra gear.
Now as we work our way around toward the front of the pack, we have 3 drag or carry straps....one each on the top, right and left sides. The straps on mine are stitched multiple times and are made out of very heavy ballistic nylon so they should last. Very nice and tough.
Between the side and tops drag handles on both the right and left sides we have good quality compression straps to tighten up your load and increase the stability of the pack.
~TIE DOWN STRAPS:
Adjacent to the top drag handle we have two short sections of sewn on strap that are great for clipping or tying gear to.
Next we have the main compartment which is sealed with a heavy duty, water resistant zipper and a rain diverting flap.
I like how the double zippers open this entire compartment right up so that both sides lay flat. This design make it easy to quickly get to all of your gear inside...
The main compartment is around 13 x 20 x 10 inches or 2,600 cubic inches, and 33 x 50 x 25 centimeters which is around 40 liters.
Since I'm a bit of a neat freak, I love the way this main compartment is organized, and this whole pack for that matter with lots of pockets, straps and tie downs.
There are 4 ballistic nylon compression straps that can cross to secure your load in the main compartment.
Half of the compartment is perfect for your cloths and a compact sleeping bag or wool blanket with plenty of space to spare.
On the front side of this compartment there are two large mesh zipper pouches. I used the bottom one for a full sized towel and wash cloth, and the top one for my personal care and hygiene kit.
Next we have a 10 x 14 inch or 25 x 36 centimeter pouch that is made for maps, journals, books, pens radios and the like.
Again, it opens and closes with double zipper pulls and has 3 separate and staggered nylon dividers for maps, books and papers.
Stitched on the front of the first divider we have pockets for 3 pens, and two radios or other stuff about radio size. This would probably be a good place to clip or keep small electronic devices like smart phones and stuff.
Now we have the front compartment which would make a great junk drawer. It's about 11 x 12 inches or 28 x 30 centimeters and is pleated so that it can expand in depth an additional inch or so yet remain narrow in thickness when not packed full.
This might be a great spot for your survival and first aid kit, emergency radio some food items, paracord and stuff like that.
This front compartment only opens from the side with a single zipper pull. Which is fine.
Okay, check this out...
On front of this compartment on the outside of the pack, we have 6 rows of MOLLE webbing. As you can see in my YouTube review on this pack (search: "condor 3-day assault pack BOB"), this is AWESOME for hanging gear!
Under the first and second MOLLE straps we have two rows of velcro for attaching your tactical, emergency, or personal identification patches...or whatever else you want.
Now under the map and junk drawer compartments we have a 11 x 5 1/2 inch or 28 x 14 centimeter compartment that is about 3 1/4 inches or 8 centimeters deep...so this is a nice sized pouch at over 3 liters.
This compartment opens wide with 2 zipper pulls and has essentially 5 separate storage spaces. There are 3 mesh pouches with elastic openings, a main center area, and one large mesh pocket with a zipper closure.
This would be a great pouch for food and cooking stuff, ropes or whatever you want.
On the front of this pouch we also have 2 rows of MOLLE straps for attaching more gear.
~NOW LETS TALK A LITTLE MORE ABOUT THE SIDE POCKETS of the Condor 3-Day Assault backpack:
On each side of the pack we have a 9 x 5 x 2 1/2 inch or 23 x 13 x 6.5 centimeter compartment. Each of these compartments opens up wide due to the double zipper pulls... which is nice.
A 1 liter bottle fits comfortably in these pockets and because they are convenient and quick to access, they are a great place to store rain gear, water purification, cooking gear, or stuff like gloves or an extra pair of socks... you get the picture. Basically, anything you might need to get at quickly.
On the front of each of these compartments are 4 more rows of MOLLE strapping... Are you getting the idea that this is a great pack for the ultimate survival gear head?
Now wrapping from the bottom back of the pack, around the side compartments to the front, we have two more compression straps to adjust the load and keep things from shifting around.
~ON THE BOTTOM of the pack we have a series of drainage holes so that any water that might get into your pack will immediately drain out the bottom. So just to be perfectly clear, this pack is NOT water proof.
This pack does a good job shedding water due to the quality water resistant zippers with and the rain flaps over the main compartments... but if you take this pack for a swim, it's going to fill up with water.
So make sure you pack an extra 3 mil thick contractor bag to put your pack and sleeping gear in, just in case you have to cross a river or stream or get stuck in a huge down pour without a shelter.
One last thing about the bottom of this pack...
There are 4 ballistic nylon tie downs on the bottom of this pack that make it easy to strap on additional gear.
We rate the Condor 3-Day Assault Pack at 5 out of 5 stars... for it's thoughtful design, the durability of materials, quality double stitching in most places, the excellent zippers and this bag's overall good craftsmanship.
We like that this pack holds a ton of gear at over 3000 cubic inches or 50 liters and has 7 main compartments.
And we love that everywhere you look on this pack there's a boat load of separate pockets, pouches, straps and tie downs to keep things stable and organized.
We appreciate the comfort of this pack even fully loaded and it's versatility to be sized for a very wide range of body sizes from about 5 foot 2 up to around 6 foot 6.
And the generous MOLLE webbing all around this pack is a real bonus and greatly extends your ability to customize this pack to suit your needs.
Plus the Condor 3-Day Assault Pack's sub $80 U.S. online street price (for all but the A-TACS version) sealed the deal on our 5 out of 5 star rating.
~SO WHO IS THE CONDOR 3-DAY ASSAULT PACK FOR?
Make no mistake, this Condor pack is a beast and should make a great pack for tactical, military, search and rescue, extreme adventures, any sort of extended camping, fishing, hunting excursions, it's perfect for a 72 hour bug out bag, a great grab and go emergency pack, travel bag and is more than suitable for anyone who wants a rugged, well designed and tough-as-nails pack, that is ready to stand up to whatever you throw at it. This pack might even survive a Zombie Apocalypse - if Zombies were real.
All this being said, certainly the Condor 3-Day Assault Pack is not for everyone.
If you want a rugged smaller pack for day use, short weekend trips and adventures, a get home bag, or vehicle emergency kit, check out the equally tough and versatile Condor Mission Pack.
