...or: The Big Brother Since the new Tasmanian Tiger Modular Combat Pack is out, it has imperceptibly asserted itself as my daypack, the other backpacks are actually gathering dust a bit. As a reminder, here's what it looks like: As a daypack it´s great, super organization, great size, very comfortable carrying system. Especially the "three compartment system“ has convinced me. A large main compartment, an organizational compartment (also called the Modular lid compartment) and a small parts compartment. Me likey! For multi-day trips, or if more equipment is required, you´ll run into space limitations, no questions about it. And this is where the Trooper comes into play. This is what it looks like: Again, first the hard facts: Dimensions: 62 x 34 x 19 cm Volume: 55 liters Empty weight: 2.7 kg Material: 700 den Cordura With 55 liters (and Molle expandability) for me the ideal size as a multi-day system or winter pack. The lid compartment could be familiar to one or the other, it is the now „standard Modular lid“ compartment. Also the shown equipment is not new, my Mini First Aid Kit has its regular place here. D-rings and clear zipper pocket make it really easy to organize things. The Velcro area at the bottom is new, ideal for, for example, the MUP from LMS Gear or other smaller velcro backed pouches. On the outside of the bag the first version still has flat rings for webbing, as far as I've seen the current versions don't have that anymore, there you find Molle. On top there are more D-rings and the outlet for a hydration bladder. A dedicated hydration bladder compartment is missing inside, however, if desired, you can help with ShockCord or webbing. I thought at first that with my pack the ShockCord had been lost somehow. I used some from my stock. Had I just looked more closely, it was simply inside one of the clear zipper pockets.... In the front compartment we find five zipper pockets, four of them transparent, plus a slide-in pocket. In the picture you can see the left over from my cord, below in the compartment the supplied one. One could mount the now surplus ShockCord inside, loops are available for this. Velcro as well, for mounting Velcro pockets, very modular once again, top! Also in the main compartment we find sturdy mounting loops, here with cord: Right and left you´ll find mesh pockets, the bottom right one is a slightly larger one which also fits the thick Nalgene/KleanKanteen bottles. In the picture above my gloves and a large Israeli Bandage. Then on the other side three large mesh zipper pockets plus velcro area at the bottom. Not to mention the hanger for the water bladder. I ended up going with the webbing/g-hook option: Heavier objects can be pressed against the back, whether it's a SAPI plate or a large water bladder.... On the sides, we find sufficiently large side pockets to accommodate water bottles or the like. And by "sufficient" I mean so big that even the thick 40 oz Klean Kanteen fits in along with a Tatonka 0.75 l cup, that really makes me happy. Thanks Tasmanian Tiger!!!
