Military or Tactical backpack for carry on

Has anyone ordered on of these Tactical backpacks from Amazon?

http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00...NP545SXQ446KLM

I am looking for a backpack that I can keep a computer in a small section, clothes in another, and misc wires and drives in different areas without having to unpack the whole bag each time I go through TSA.

Something that makes it easy to go to a clients shop, pull out what I need and still have some privacy as to what I brought.

I do a lot of over night trips and try not to check a bag.

I've got the 511 rush 72 and love it. I just went the "tactical" route because I wanted something rugged that I could also use for camping/hiking. I've had it for about 3 years and it doesn't show the slightest sign of wear. I've taken it on about 5 flights, a few months of traveling non stop for work, and a few hiking trips. The front pouch holds my laptop perfectly and fits enough clothes, shoes, etc for a few days. It's got good back support and all the straps keep it snug. I've had it filled to the brim and it fits on carry on.

My brother has the rush 24 that he uses for work but the front compartment wouldn't fit a laptop and it fills up fast.


Edit- it also has room for a metal plate or a large water bladder in the back of it. The top pouch is felt lined for shades as well.

I saw this guy last year with a tiger print backpack, those wrap around sunglasses, and the tactical hat with the removable patch at the airport. He was fat as fvck and looked like he wanted to flash bang his way through line in Starbucks.

I'd go with a mystery ranch pack. Suspension frame, tri-zip to allow easy access to the sh!t you put in the bottom without having to take everything out. They make some great bags. I've got their Thor pack.

You'll have to pony up a bit more than that amazon back pack, though.

Those look really nice, but damn some of those prices.......


Also agree on paying more than OP's Amazon backpack. I wouldn't want to shell out $300-$400 on a pack, but I wouldn't expect much for $30. I'm pretty sure a Spider-Man kids pack cost that much.

LAPG and 5.11 make some nice backpacks.



Also, molle straps and cordura =/= tactical backpack

OP, I'd check out 511 and mystery ranch packs. You can get some good deals on both those brands on ebay too. I think my brother paid $90 for the 24.

I definitely wouldn't trust a $20 something dollar pack to hold up long or have good quality. I paid almost $200 for the rush 72 and seriously expect it to last forever.

I take out the water bladder on my camelbak when I'm not hiking and need a bag. Seems to be sturdy enough.

Yeah, I've used my Camelbak Mule a few times for hiking when I don't want to carry the Rush 72. It's held up pretty good and went through a World's Toughest Mudder too. My brother went back to prison so I've confiscated his Rush 24 till he gets out. Now I have the Camelbak for light hikes, the 24 for a day trip, and the 72 for longer trips or pressure cookers.
