3V Gear Velox II Large Tactical Backpack MOLLE Review
If you’re a fan of tactical backpacks, you’ve probably often felt restricted by the lack of all-in-one options. It’s incredibly difficult to find a tactical backpack that’s not only tough enough to carry many pounds of gear through rugged terrain, but is also sleek enough to bring laptops and travel items with you on more urban trips.
That’s why this backpack stands out; it’s perfect for whatever occasion you may need, and this versatility makes it unique among tactical backpacks. It has several important features that are particularly notable when helping you chose between this and other models:
Lots of storage space
This backpack has 1628 cubic inches of space, which allows you to pack enough gear for any mission, operation or day trip that you might need.
Furthermore, it’s made with large, self-healing zippers that give you easy, wide access to the many compartments and subcompartments accessible in this pack, which only increases the storage volume available to you. The key here is easy – you don’t have to force the compartments open or closed, and you can trust that they won’t break no matter how much stuff you have in them!
This backpack comes in four colors – Black, Olive, Coyote and Gray – so that you can choose the one that works best for you and the uses you have planned for it. Furthermore, it’s many compartments mean that you can make it as large or small as you want – keeping it compact for flights and expanding it for when you make less formal journeys.
Durability, no matter the conditions
This backpack is made with PVC, which is a type of plastic that is often used to make pipes used in construction – that may give you an indication of how tough this pack is. It’s backed with nylon that gives the large backpack some rigidity, keeping it together even as you may need to stretch it to fit gear of different shapes and sizes.
The nylon also makes it weather resistant, which is especially important if you are planning to travel to rugged environments where you may not be able to anticipate what’s coming next.
MOLLE, or Modular Lightweight Load-carrying Equipment, is a term for the general class of backpacks and other accessories that you use to carry different types of gear and equipment. It is currently utilized by a number of NATO armed forces, especially the British Army and the United States Army. This backpack is MOLLE compatible and can carry pouches and attachments through its various compartments.
Hydration bladder readiness
This backpack is ready to store as much water as you need for at least a day’s journey in a hydration bladder, which you can slip inside comfortably.
This extends to other types of attachments, which you can move around to have room for the things that you may not be able to attach so easily to the outside of the pack. That means that you won’t have to buy all-new gear, but can simply use what you’ve collected so far.
