Deciding on buying a pack

Posted in Combat Pack on August 4, 2010 by Combat Pack

A lot of newbies have a hard time deciding what type of pack to buy, after all there are so many kinds and styles that it can be overwhelming. The first thing one must consider when buying a pack for outdoor activities is what and how much you need to pack in it, and this boils down to the type of activity you need it for.

For a one day trip to the wilderness or hike a medium size backpack is usually a good choice, it is not too big that it will be too heavy but it is not so small that you won’t be able to pack your essentials. For these “average” situations I recommend something like the Maxpedition Condor-II. This military assault backpack has a capacity of 1950 cu, it accomodates a 100oz water reservoir and is very durable, perfect for any kind of terrain whether is is jungle or dessert.

  • Main Compartment: 17.5″(H) x 14″(W) x 6.5″(D)
  • Upper Front Pouch: 5.5″(H) x 9″(W) x 2″(D)
  • Lower Front Pouch: 8″(H) x 9″(W) x 2.5″(D)
  • Approximate Overall Capacity: 1950 cu. in. / 32 L
  • Hydration: Fits up to 100 oz / 3L Reservoir (sold separately)
  • Support: 1″ Sternum Strap, 1.5″ Waist Strap (min 14″ strap alone / max 42″ strap alone; min 28″ loop / max 56″ loop)
  • Optional accessories: Hook & Loop Modular Accessories and Grimloc Carabiner
  • Empty Weight: 47.8 oz.

For a 3-Day assault pack some people might be able to squeeze all their gear in to the Condor-II, but others will prefer something a little bigger. The Vulture-II 3 Day assault pack has a capacity of 2810 cubic inches, this extra space will fit more gear than the Condor and it also accommodates a 100 oz water reservoir.

  • Main Compartment: 20.5″(H) x 16″(W) x 7.5″(D)
  • Front Pouch: 15.5″(H) x 12″(W) x 2.75″(D)
  • Slip Pocket: 15.5″(H) x 12″(W)
  • Capacity: 2810 cu. in. / 46 liters
  • Weight: 3 lbs , 8 oz
  • Hydration: Up to 100+ oz Bladder
  • Support: 1″ Sternum Strap, 2″ Integrated Belt ( min 19″ strap alone / max 52″ strap alone ; min 34″ loop / max 67″ loop )
  • Optional accessories: Hook & Loop Modular Accessories and Grimloc Carabiner, Hydration reservoir

For who need to pack a lot of gear there are some choices as well. The  Maxpedition DOPPEL DUFFEL Adventure Bag is a huge diggel bag that will store all your clothes, equipment and gear. This bag has an estimated capacity of 3200 cu inches. The good quality materials and strong built will ensure that the bag will not tear easily even when heavily packed.

  • Main compartment: 26” x 13” x 9” with two padded dividers
  • Frontal/top compartment: 10” x 7” x 2”
  • Internal pockets: 8” x 6” x 2” (two)

Of course there are a lot more things to consider when buying a military, hiking or tactical pack. You need to consider the compartments, built quality, color and even style. Determining the size will help you by narrowing down your choices.

Make sure you hydrate!

Most people know that water is very important for our health, yet most of us don’t drink enough water. When I was in the Marine Corps and went to School of Infantry I was introduced to a new type of product, a hydration pack.
A pouch that you wear on your back like a backpack that is filled with water and has a flexible tube where you suck water from was the most amazing invention ever! At least in my situation at the time, it meant I could go on hikes or runs and stay hydrated by sipping water constantly.

That was about 8 years ago, now there are a lot of different styles of hydration devices but the purpose is the same. Some tactical packs now are created with special compartments to keep these water reservoirs. If you are tired of hand carryign water bottles during your outdoor activities you should consider getting a hydration pack.

The Maxpedition Falcon II tactical pack accommodates not just 1 but 2 water reservoirs, with items such as these there are no more excuses for being dehydrated.
