Tactical Patrick Backpack

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!

tc99-4This was well over a year ago, I wanted to wait at least this long before posting about it to see how it would stand the test of time and abuse.

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.
