Drago Gear Sentry Pack for iPad®
Technology goes with me just about everywhere. I use my Apple iPad2 for navigation, star gazing, reading, music, videos and it deserves to be taken care of. I’ve owned a number of cases for it, but it typically gets jammed into whatever bag I happen to be carrying that day. Most of those bags aren’t designed to protect my iPad and as a result, it has some scrapes, dents and dings that I wish weren’t there. I have found a couple of bags in the past that called themselves “Tablet Bags” but honestly, they were a joke.
To keep your iPad safe while giving you a functional pack for carrying other odds and ends, Drago Gear introduced the Sentry Pack for iPad as part of their Covert Strike Collection. The Sentry Pack is made of durable 600D Polyester and has the usual awesome Drago Gear build quality with heavy-duty zippers, zipper pulls and tons of webbing.
Inside you’ll find a thick cushioned pocket for your iPad (or tablet) with a velcro strap to keep it in place. The main cavity also has a zippered inner pocket to keep items secure. Another, smaller storage area on the front of the pack offers spots for keys, chargers, cables, pens and other accessories. Above that is a compartment for sunglasses or other small items. On the back of the pack, you’ll find a padded, concealed-carry pocket.
The Sentry Pack is a sling pack (single shoulder) that can be adjusted for use over either shoulder and includes a smart phone holder on the sling strap. The smart phone holder worked great with my iPhone 5S and HTC One M8 phones. I also used it to hold my Mophie Powerstation Pro portable battery. Like all Drago Gear, there are D-rings everywhere for connecting other equipment.
Over the past few months, I’ve used the Sentry Pack as a day pack, fishing pack, work pack and my kids have borrowed it for school and other uses. Another WM staff member even took it on vacation and used it as his day pack. Keeping in mind what the Sentry Pack was really designed for, this pack delivers on every front. I’m not doing covert ops, but I’m sure this pack would be right at home out on a mission as it is going to work with me daily. If you are going out for the day and want to bring along a sweatshirt or light jacket? No problem. Books, a water bottle and various other stuff? Check. Even though it was made to carry a tablet, it is great as an all around pack.
