Designed for Military and Law Enforcement operators, however the camo/solid color selection also makes it a great choice for outdoor enthusiasts. The low profile look and feel makes it a perfect everyday carry bag. If you are looking for a heavy duty backpack for your laptop, tablet, iPad, hydration bladder, etc. or just a solid base for your bug out bag. It is the best value for your money.
Its 25+ liter capacity makes this 2-day backpack great for both patrol and advanced tactical duties. Combat Vent System is our unique patented ventilation system that provides increased comfort for their operator. Contoured foam profiles with multiple air channels combined with airy mesh keeps the pack off the users back. This enhances air flow to help prevent heat build-up and sweating. Front pocket features an internal organizer for GPS, writing utensils and other small essentials. The Egg shape allows the pack to have a smaller height and width than other packs with similar capacity. It also makes it more comfortable with belt kits or ballistic vests. Daisy chain webbing that runs along the front panel seam for attaching carabineers. Side pockets can carry small items, they will fit a standard U.S. canteen or Nalgene. The laser-cut MOLLE/PALS makes the backpack fully modular with a low profile look. Laser-cut does not absorb water like traditional MOLLE/PALS webbing. Suspension system is based on S-profiled shoulder straps and internal stiffener in the back.Key Features:

It's all about special detail, and this bag is loaded.
Pic 1 The bag, this is the bag fully loaded with tent ( will show load out at the end)
Pic 2 The bottom, notice this design has quality buckles, not just lashing to hold the tent, also notice the Velcro keepers for extra strapping, no more dangling mess while not in use.
Pic 3 The bottom, without the tent, strap tucked away nice and neat
Pic 4 The back Shoulder straps are on the thin side, no more bulky stiff neck, thickly padded with ventilation. Great for women like me... Or when wearing bulky winter coats. Chest strap fully adjustable with ELEASTC ! Every strap and the waist belt has keepers, some Velcro on belt, elastic, again no more dangling strap mess getting caught on everything. Buckles are all top quality with the cool logo. Nice detail.
Pic 5. Side pockets expand, but this side I attached a pouch. When closed pockets are great to securely hold knives, saws, axes, etc... Notice there are two sets of buckles that can lash the tools in. In this pic used my mans wall collection for demonstration, (knife is huge) see Pic 6 shows size of knife and how much room you have.
Pic 7 Side pocket expanded with my Stanley 32 oz stainless water bottle, securely buckled in. I put paracord through a loop on the pocket to highlight the you can tie stuff down or put a carabiner there as well. Pockets close with Velcro as well to use as --small pockets. So much detail !
Pic 8. Zipper pulls are all 550 paracord with what feels like rubber, or ranger band material as a protective sheath. Zipper tabs are heavy plastic and get this, are curved to the countour of your fingers...lol. Zippers heavy duty top quality, and are inverted like all smart manufactures are doing now to add barrier for rain/ snow leaks. Three major compartments are double zipped.
Pic 9. Check out the handle! To be honest this drew me in, and the beautiful pattern, and the name...lol ok, ok .... Yes, it's 550 braided paracord on a heavy plastic loop. Loops everywhere on this bag! In this pic check out also the double stitching, it's flawless, everywhere, not a thread out of place.
Pic 10. The front pocket is good size, fits my Galaxy Note 5, head lamp, and still more room for other things
Pic 11. The first compartment opens all the way !!! Clam shell !! Yes !! Organization is just great. It is wider at the bottom so it fits tons of stuff.
Pic 12. The main compartment does not fully open but opens enough to get to everything easily... it's perfect. Has a back slip pocket for a water bladder, tried to show attachment point on pic, and a mesh pocket. What you don't see is my big Grand Trunk hammock/tarp combo at the bottom.
Pic 13. And last the back with a padded compartment with Velcro strap that also can be used for a water bladder as well, has the attachment buckle like inside, or used for iPad, tablet, etc...
Pic 14. This is all the gear that fits in and on this bag, including military poncho, tarp and nylon shelter in the green bag more stuff still inside pockets, including my radio etc... ( minus the cat )
With all the above praise, there are some things that bug me:
*The position of the felt lined pocket. I have several larger 5.11 bags with felt lined pockets and since owning them it's now a "must have" in a bag. The difference between those and the Dragon Egg pocket is that the 5.11 pockets insert from the top of the bag and the pocket recesses into the larger compartment. The Dragon Egg pocket sits along the outside of the second large compartment increasing the likelihood that any fragile items you place in it (kind of the point for me) will be crushed.
*GO LOUD. THIS IS MY BIGGEST GRIPE. I find it ironic that "Go Loud" is the slogan, because the side-release buckles are VERY LOUD. They're sturdy, and secure, but there's just enough play that they rattle when the bag moves around. with approx 8 rattling buckles on the bag, it sounds like I'm carrying a bunch of loose poker chips around! I was very disturbed by this, but I LOVED the bag so much that I devised a work-around rather than return it. I found some black battery-cable heat shrink, pre-shrunk it, and stretched a quarter-inch wide band around the bottoms of the male ends of the buckles. they provide enough push-back against the female end to eliminate the rattle. If you're interested in this fix so I've posted some photos. I'm sure the heat-shrink will wear out and I'll eventually have to re-fix it, but for me it's worth it.
*No hook-loop for standard name tape. Minor gripe here. The small hook-loop panel on the outside of the bag isn't long enough for your standard military name tape. I simply attached a hook-loop panel to the laser-cut PALS so that I could add my name tape.
*Rain-flap over zippers? Not sure if this is a gripe yet, since I haven't had to venture out in the rain with my new bag yet. I'm a little worried that the lack of a material flap over the zippers will allow more rain-water to leak into the bag when I'm eventually caught in a downpour. All my other bags have about a quarter inch of material that hangs over the zippers to help prevent this.
* I wish the straps on the bottom were user-removable. It's nice to have two straps with side-release buckles on the bottom if I ever needed to lash gear down there, but the long straps are awkward when not in use, even when secured with the handy velcro keepers (which are on all the straps and are awesome btw).
