For those who are looking for a tactical backpack with a lot to offer, this is a great pack because it has a number of features that will appeal to the outdoorsman in you.
You can use this for regular day trips or keep it stocked with all your survival gear and keep it tucked away for an emergency. Let’s dig in and really see what the Monkey Paks Tactical Backpack has to offer.
When it comes what bag you could put all of your survival gear in, this backpack is a good option. It features a hydration ready system, with the 2.5L water bladder included. That’s a nice feature to have because you don’t have to worry about packing water bottles, which will take up extra space in the pack.
The army style backpack has the ability to hold a good amount of stuff, as the dimensions of the main pack is 20”H x 12”W x 5.5”D. The overall design of the pack is cool because it is modular and you have the option of removing the waist, fanny, or should bags if you needed to. Plus, since these packs are smaller, you can keep your smaller items organized, which makes it easier to locate anything you may be looking for.
The overall construction of the bag is made to last. It features double stitched seams to prevent the bag from ripping or getting torn, and the zippers are made with large teeth that make it easy to zip and unzip without drag. Also, it is more discreet than other backpacks because it has a paracord tab on the zipper instead of the traditional metal tab.
What makes this particular backpack different than other backpacks on the market is that it comes with a water bladder. Other backpacks may have space for you to include your own, which is an added expense. With this one, Monkey Paks has included it to make it more convenient for you.
Also, this bag is MOLLE compatible. You can attach a number MOLLE packs so that you can customize your back to suit your needs.
As wonderful as this bag may seem, there have been a few complaints regarding the construction of the bag. Some customers have said that the bag isn’t truly MOLLE compatible, as they use Velcro instead.
Another concern is that because there is a lack of interior dividers, it could be problematic when looking for some items, which in an emergency situation, could be disastrous.
Another concern a customer pointed out is the nylon straps of the bag are very slick. The plastic clasps doesn’t appear to have teeth on them, so you may have to tie off the strap so that the nylon doesn’t slip through.
The pricing for this tactical backpack is right around $60.
For the $60 price tag, you might be a little bothered by the fact that there aren’t any dividers in the bag, thus making you rummage around for small items like chapsticks, pencils, or other odds and ends. However, if you are someone who doesn’t mind rummaging or plans on using smaller packs, then you may want to consider this waterproof bag from Monkey Paks.
