    All,

    I'm looking for a cheap version of Tactical Tailor's Three Day Assult Pack. Its basically something that will be living in the back of the car and barely used. But I also don't want to rely on it then it falls apart either.

    Know where I can find such a bag?

    Thanks,
    Kris

    I'd recommend checking out your local Union Surplus stores.

    Er.... Army surplus stores and the like I guess. I don't know if they're all called that.

    But ya, sometimes they have nice packs for pretty cheap that are rugged and durable.
    Be careful though, sometimes they get stuff from overseas that are knockoffs.
    The quality on those products are suspect.

    The easiest way to tell is to examine the zippers. If they're cheap, most likely it's a
    knockoff.

    My other suggestion would be to try REI when they have sales and closeouts.
    Especially at their Outlet site online.

    Good luck!

    I was just looking at the outlet and considering posting about it. There were some good deals. Another option for an inexpensive quality bag is Campmor; they have 'Hot deals' and there is always something worth considering.

    As for the surplus store route, check to see if they carry any surplus or used ALICE packs.

    Great ideas... one hitch, i'm in the Caribbean. Any places that you know of that sell cheap (or used) bags without breaking your wallet?

    I will be going to the states this May for a week, so I might be able to check some stuff out then.

    Thanks all,
    Kris

    Diplomat's great gear for the money. I own 2 of the larger BOBs and the 3 day pack. Also 2 each of the pouches. All for less than a lot of bags alone.
