Red Rock Outdoor Gear Assault Pack Review
The main selling point of this backpack is its value – although it is a large, 20-Liter tactical backpack with numerous unique features, it is priced relatively low and thus can be a great gift for someone (or for yourself).
The Red Rock Outdoor Gear Assault Pack, as you can guess judging by its name, is made to survive the outdoors – rain or shine, hot or cold, snow or hail. Here are just a few of its features.
At 20 Liters, this pack holds a significant amount of gear without being so large that you can’t take it with you on an airplane.
It has numerous compartments so that you can keep all of your items organized; 1,178 cubic inches of storage space in total are great for small items like cameras and binoculars, or larger ones like concealed carry weapons. A medium two-liter external pocket is made for organizing survival essentials.
This pack has a padded sleeve on its back panel, which can be used to hold a hydration bladder and thus maximize your space in the main compartment while meeting your survival needs. However, it can also double as a secure compartment for an iPad or tablet.
Adjustable to fit your needs.
This backpack is made to fit the individual person; for example, it has contoured shoulder straps that are constructed with mesh padding for extra comfort and ventilation, and which – most importantly – are fully adjustable. The waist strap, which adjusts the weight of the load, is also adjustable.
Made to be comfortable.
Just because a backpack is practical doesn’t mean it can’t also be comfortable. The mesh of the padded back panel (which, by the way, also has a convenient Velcro top closure) is ventilated, which allows heat and sweat to be released while fresh air circulates, cooling you down. Four quick-release compression straps are there for expansion or consolidation as necessary.
Ready for MOLLE add-ons.
The Assault Pack from Red Rock Outdoor Gear is equipped with MOLLE webbing throughout, which is perfect for attaching additional pouches or gear (that is, of course, if you find the storage space in this pack to not actually be enough).
This makes it great if you already have lots of accessories and just want to attach them to a new pack instead of buying fully new ones altogether.
