Title: I miss my Small Pack
Post by: Griffy42 on August 24, 2018, 19:21:39
My last posting was to Petawawa, so I had a Small Pack. I LOVED it,  I used it everyday to hold my uniform, lunch, kit... everything.  Now that I'm posted to an Air Force Base (Trenton) I'm no longer entitled to one.

I can't seem to find a bag that can hold my uniform including my boots for after PT let alone all the kit that I need with me in the winter.

I'm looking for suggestions! I'm only 5'4" so I'm hoping to find something that's no bigger than the small pack but will hold everything I need.

Maybe have a look at MEC, they have some really good gear, a bit pricey but imo worth it most of the time.

How about trying a search on Ebay  (https://www.ebay.ca/sch/i.html?_from=R40&_trksid=p2380057.m570.l1313.TR12.TRC2.A0.H0.Xarmy+backpack.TRS0&_nkw=army+backpack&_sacat=0)for options.

Might not be Maxpedition-like quality, but fairly less costly.

Highly recommend 5.11 Rush 72 hr pack.  Great piece of kit. Carries extra uniform, boots, pt gear and more in garrison and it's what I use for exercises that are 3 days or less.

If you TD to the US, check out the NEX/PX/MCX (dependent on base) for their selection.  SOG and 5.11 have some great packs that are pretty cheap there.

I have to hand it to them... copying our POS Day Pack and selling it for 90 bucks is sheer 'Dragon's Den Worthy' genius :)

If you want an "army-ish" bag there's loads of companies making versions of a "3 day assault pack".

Pro-tip, get it in black so you don't look silly wearing it with civies.

These guys make darn good bags veteran owned too in the US.

I of course work with CN rail so I bought the railroad grip off them embroidered and all.. let's just say it is a tank of a bag. It may be worth considering. I am also a chap who is hard on his bags and this thing looks like it will stand up nicely.

Pretty much this. I have a black bag I got online and it's one of my best investments.
