Growing up in a small town close to a big city, I have had the pleasure of being influenced by everything from the designer fashion world all the way to the outdoor – getting dirty, riding quads – kind-of-lifestyle.
I have always been the type of girl who cannot leave home without her bag. Having a love for the couture world has influenced me to appreciate the luxuries of a large quality bag – I am no stranger to a good Gucci or Fendi! They have always accommodated my every day carry needs to hold all my must have accessories.
I soon realized that when going out to compete in my BladeSports competitions and being involved with other outdoor hobbies, I needed to retire my designer bags for something more practical. My Coach hobo bag or Michael Kors cross body would no longer make the cut. So I went on a hunt for a bag that would fit my new lifestyle.
I was recently given the opportunity to review a Medium Transport Pack by Fox Tactical. I wondered at first if this pack could fit my every day needs. After carrying it for 3 months I soon realized that this pack met the essentials of my day to day tasks.
The pack is a well-made, quality pack. Equipped with multiple storage compartments that complement my organizational requests. The variety of optional modulars helps keep my assortment of accessories orderly. With the main compartment being large enough to store anything from my 15 inch competition chopper to my canteen and bivy, or all of the above, you can see that the space is perfect for a variety of needs.
A smaller modular is perfect to use alone for lighter loads to keep structure within the bag. The compression straps can be adjusted when the larger compartment is not in use, or mainly used just for a bladder.
The pack encompasses a variety of features providing storage compartments for keys, pens, and calculators with dual bungee cords that hook and loop to provide maximum load retention and stabilization. Self-healing zippers provide maximum accessibility and can be moved to allow access from the top, sides or split wide to maximize pack loading.
The outer compartments are perfect for securing small items, provided with zippered mesh pouches that will secure your valued items and keep your essentials within reach. Hidden zippered compartments rest throughout the pack for maps, documents, and ammo that need to be concealed.
Fully adjustable shoulder straps are perfect for detachment with quick release buckles that make for easy dismount for any stature. To add to the perfect design the padded back rest with contoured pads help prevent fatigue even when loaded to the maximum capacity.
The adjustable shoulder straps retention seems to slip a little with active use.I found that either running them long and tucking them into the metal buckle below or a simple overhand knot would remedy this. But this shouldn’t happen.
This versatile pack is designed and constructed to incorporate functionality, accessibility, and comfort all in one.
I would highly recommend the Medium Transport Pack by Fox Tactical for anyone looking for an overall versatile pack to safely carry your gear with comfort and security knowing that your belongings are protected by a premium design.
