'Bomber' gear
« on: April 23, 2008, 12:28:17 AM »
Just wanted to share this equipment for those who like very well made stuff. All their daypacks are made of 1000 denier cordura and everything is really tough and focused towards utility and comfort.

I just got the "Gearslinger Monsoon" in today from Fed Ex... man this thing is stout!!

Only 1600 cu in... Good for day hikes though. Can throw a fuel bottle in the outside pocket, pack a stove, food and rain gear as well as water (holds a 100 oz camelback).... whatever you need. Also has all kinds of ways to clip or strap more gear onto the pack. The whole pack is overkill, and I think it will make a great addition to anyones hiking gear.

The over the shoulder single sling is wide. Most will probably think they won't like it, and rather go with double straps. I feel this design is pretty good, and it's comfortable too. There is also another strap at the hip which goes across from right to left. On the left side is a wide, short section coming off the pack body that has webbing to put more stuff, and a couple of pockets. This is also where the hip strap buckles together. When shoulder strap and hip strap are secured, the pack moulds to your back, and seems very low center of gravity making it ideal for moving and scrambling amongst rocks etc. This pack (I hate to say this being I have caught so much flak already) would be perfect for a Marine, SEAL, or Special Forces operator.

Hmmm...... :eusa_think: I would hope one would never catch flak for complimenting those who serve and defend our country.
Congrats on the new pack LandCruisers4Life! :eusa_clap:

No guns in mine. I got the olive green, which is one of my favorite colors.

I was checking out the Camel-back bladders this evening. Pretty pricey, but worth it from what my buddy says. I'll be looking to buy one of those soon.

This pack is very nice! I highly recommend the product.

Lighter Fluid - I was a reconnaissance Marine almost 20 years ago. I often get flak for being a bit more 'hard core' than the usual outdoors person. I just don't want to step on other peoples toes here.
