What We Like About It
This Condor pack is made of high quality, heavy duty construction. The pack itself is made from 1000-Denier water/wear resistant nylon, which is known to be one of the toughest and most durable materials available for backpacks.
We love the large storage capacity of this pack, but the bag would be a mess if it weren’t for all the various organizational systems and pockets within each of the 7 available storage compartments to store your gear. There is no point in having such a large bag that can carry so much if you can’t find your specific gear when you need it!
This is what customers are saying about this tactical backpack.
“I’ve been using this backpack for about 3.5 years for daily us, and it’s still in roughly the same shape as it was when I bought it. I have really stuffed this to capacity a number of times, and it’s held up well.”
Another satisfied customer commented: “This is an amazing tact pack and won’t disappoint. I ordered this 2 weeks ago today and it came in a few days and loved it. There’s so much more room and extra compartments than my other ACU pack. The wide straps are awesome for walking around campus. I carry all my books, laptop, whatever (about 40 lbs) in this thing and it’s not heavy at all. The side handles are convenient as well. The Velcro patches are a plus. The detachable waist strap is awesome too. I’m going to enlist in the Army (11B or 19D) next spring, and I’ve wanted a pack that’s big enough to train with and go ruck with and I’m sure I found one. I recommend this to anyone.”
What We Don’t Like About It
The pulls on the zippers seem a little loose and cheaply made, if they were to come off it would make opening the compartments a little more of a hassle.
Also, because of the sheer size and storage capacity of this pack, if you are under 5’6” this pack may hang a little low on your body.
The Condor 3 Day Assault Pack is a heavy-duty pack, perfect for any bug out bag. The pack is very big and is perfect for carrying all of your items on your bug out bag checklist.
The pack is comfortable and well built to limit strain on your body. The outer shell of the pack is made of durable 1000-Denier nylon and the inner shell is just as high quality with 7 different compartments complete with organizers, tie downs, and pockets so all your gear is easy to find.
It also has grommets for drainage so minimal water damage occurs to your gear in the case of water leaking. With the ability to hold two 3L hydration bladders, this pack is a great option for a tactical backpack and finding something of similar quality at a similar price point is not easy.
