I needed another backpack, about as much as I need another hole in my head, but when I was poking around at this small town hardware store with a camping and military surplus isle, I just couldn’t help myself. There is was, a large and impressive Molle backpack, the Tactical Patrick Backpack, and it had my name written all over it.
Tactical Patrick Backpack
I was wandering a small town hardware store, when I saw it. It was there on a shelf, all alone, calling me. It was some mysterious black Molle backpack. I slyly walked over to it and discreetly checked out her tag. It said “Tactical Patrick Backpack“.
I wasn’t familiar with the Tactical Patrick Backpack, but when I picked it up and checked it over, it appeared to be a pretty rugged backpack. The zippers, zipper pulls and fabric seemed to be right on par with backpacks costing well over $150. Since a bird in the hand is worth 2 in the bush, I decided to slap down my money and take this backpack home!
How has it worked for me? It’s been a champ!
A few weeks ago, I used this pack for a 4 day trip, out of state, to visit my family. My load out for the trip included:
- 2 pair of pantss
- 4 pair of socks
- 4 pair of underwear
- 4 T-shirts
- 4 undershirts
- 1 pair of shorts
- small toiletry kit
- electric razor (for my large bald head)
- CPAP machine (yes I have apnea, blah)
- CPAP hose and mask
- laptop and power cable (brick)
- 3 Nexus 7 tablets (with 3 chargers)
- Glock 19
- Phone Charger
- 2 motorola droid phones (long drive with 3 kids, explains all the gadgets)
- Pocket size Army Ranger manual (for my entertainment while the wife was driving)
- rope for knots practice
- AR15 lower (to show my brother, the gun smith)
Keep in mind, this is not the full list. The items were all crammed into the bag, and I managed to bring home more stuff than I originally brought with me.
