I'm a gear junkie, and as such, I'm always excited to try new pieces. 5.11 Tactical designed and built the Covert Boxpack, and I couldn't wait to get my hands on it. The company has never before produced a roll top pack, and I think this one came out great. They advertise the Boxpack as being [...]
We last published our review of GORUCK's flagship ruck sack, the GR-1. Since then, the military-grade gear manufacturer has created a backpack meant exclusively for rucking, otherwise characterized as walking extended distances while carrying heavy weight. The GORUCK Rucker can fit special weighted plates, as well as standard gear meant for hiking or camping. Whether it's [...]
The GORUCK GR-1 is a military grade rucksack that is proudly constructed in the USA(along with every other pack they make) with a lifetime warranty. GORUCK makes many military MOLLE backpacks, but this review is going to be focused on their original, be-all, end-all 24 hour ruck, the GR-1. Conceived and created by Jason McCarthy, [...]

Direct Action Gear started in Poland, and has since expanded into the US market with an office in New York. Their gear definitely has some unique features which I would simply categorize as "outside the box". They've got three military backpacks, which range in size and available features. The smallest is the "Dust" model, while [...]
The VISM Tactical Backpack is a small to mid capacity backpack manufactured by NcStar. The main compartment has an internal capacity of over 1,200 sq inches and there are six additional smaller compartments: two on each side and two on the back. It's also fully adjustable to accommodate different sizes and is available either in [...]
Spec Ops has released another killer assault pack they call "T.H.E." Pack. That stands for Tactical Holds Everything and believe me, this pack is a serious contender for just about anything. We review it in full.
The MOLLE II is a serious, no-nonsense Government Issue pack. Most of these are used so they've got history built in to them which is a plus. Heavy duty, huge and durable - these are the traits which live inside this pack.
The Maxpedition Vulture ii is a serious 3-day Military Rucksack. It's got all the features you'd expect from a top shelf manufacturer. Heavy fabric, woven pockets and hydration system, all included.
