The 3V Outlaw Gear Sling Pack makes an excellent EDC or bug out bag. It is unique in that it is a sling style pack. This means the bag can sling from your back to your chest in order to access your gear, without having to take off the pack. This can save valuable time in a critical situation. The pack also comes with an additional strap if you need the pack to be able to support the load on your back over both shoulders. The bag has 3 storage compartments with organizers, is compatible with hydration packs, and is made of durable 600D PVC nylon.
The pack has 3 storage compartments, each with varying organization systems inside:
Main compartment- 15”H x 8”W x 4” D (480 cubic inches)
Top Front- 4.5”H x 7.5”W x 2” D (68 cubic inches)
Bottom Front- 8.5”H x 8”W x 2” D (136 cubic inches)
Overall Size- 684 total cubic inches
Overall Dimensions- 17.5”H x 9.5”W x 8.25”D

Internal organization includes a padded laptop sleeve that can fit most 15” laptops. The main compartment and hydration sleeve also are compatible with CCW accessories, with a hook field for your holster included inside the hydration sleeve. The pack is also MOLLE and PALS compatible.
When used as a sling, the pack is designed to be worn on the left shoulder to better enable weapon shouldering. The pack can sling with full range of motion, allowing the user to wear it in the front and access gear while sitting.
The pack also features a water bottle pocket designed to fit most 24oz bottles (3”wide)
The pack is durable and made of 600D PVC nylon. The zippers are rust resistant nylon zippers threaded with para-cord to make them quieter and stronger. The pack also has theft deterrent devices built-in to add security to the zippers.
The pack is comfortable with the ability to add the second strap when hauling extra weight. When not in use, that strap can be contained by built-in elastic strap keepers. The back panel is molded EVA and vented, and the single sling strap also uses air mesh for added comfort.
What We Like About It
This is a great option for a medium sized EDC pack. We love the innovation of the sling pack, and found the air mesh strap quite comfortable. The bag has been cleverly designed to allow as much comfort as possible when worn on the left shoulder, so don’t be concerned about strain on your body. It is a great feature to have full range of motion in slinging the pack from back to front in order to quickly and easily access important gear right when you need it. Of course, the ability to attach the second shoulder strap gives the pack a refreshing versatility if you have a heavy load. The 3 compartments were intelligently designed, and we also like the ability to attach a CCW holster easily in the hydration compartment. The 30 day satisfaction guarantee along with the lifetime warranty are hard to pass up!
This is what customers have said about this pack:
One happy customer wrote: I was looking for a bug out bag to put my things in. I have 6 assorted pistol mags, extra ammo, morakniv (look it up AWESOME) bushcraft knife, emergency blankets (6), emergency tarps (6), long sleeve shirt and long pants. I have other assorted little things like first aid kit, water purifier, ect.
The bag is kinda smaller than a standard backpack but not by much. I’m very pleased and surprised with it’s build and spaces to put things.”
Another customer wrote: ” Nice pack.
What We Don’t Like About It
Although there are internal organizers in the compartments, we wish there were better organizing options for smaller items, and maybe the ability to attach hook and loop panels in order to better store small items such as pocket knives, flashlights, tactical pens, etc. the bag is made to sling only on the left shoulder, it would also be a nice feature if it could be worn from either shoulder.
Overall, it is difficult to find a pack that compares with the price and durability of the 3V Gear Slinger Pack. With the full motion sling option, heavy duty zippers and 600D PVC nylon, 3 storage compartments, along with the piece of mind of a lifetime warranty, this pack is an excellent option for a medium sized tactical pack.
