Fresh back from our winter camping trip I present a couple of reivews on new and not so new gear.
First up will be my most recent aquisition. T.A.D. Gear F.A.S.T. Pack PS v2. This pack is to replace my Blackhawk! OPSEC pack. The over all quality of the T.A.D. pack is far superior to Blackhawk or most other packs I have seen. This much was expected due to the high price tag. MOLLE webbing and PALS webbing are in no short supply which gives me the option to move gear normally stored in the bag to the outside. The pack has 2 internal zipper pockets one above the other. The top pocket is gussetted which allowed storeage of things like energy bars to my Panasonic DLSR. The bottom pocket swallowed up my Goretex parka and pants. Though there is a hydration compatable pocket, there is not much in the way of securing it from movement. The pocket is far too deep for a 100oz bag which leaves it hanging. Not a huge problem, but a small annoyance. Empty weight of the bag seems a little heavy, however once loaded up and worn the pack rides very close to the back with the weight of the pack placed on the hips. Fully contoured shoulder straps keep them where the should be. All in all there are no regrets with this bag.
