The LA Police Gear Operator Backpack is one of the latest products from LA Police Gear that will astound you with the level of features it has. This backpack is available in Black, Tan and OD Green. It features a padded back and ergonomically designed pockets and compartments that will meet your needs, no matter what the job.

This hydration compatible backpack will hold up to a 100 oz (3 Liter) Hydration Reservoir (reservoir not included) and allows you to route the tube to whichever side you prefer.

The main compartment of this pack features a large amount of space for bulky items, and also adjustable straps to tie down smaller items or clothing. The inner flap features two zippered mesh compartments. It also has two radio ports at the top of the compartment for the antenna.

The lower front compartment features mesh dividers and compartments for extra storage and organization. The outside of this compartment is covered in molle for additional pouches or attachments to be mounted.

The upper front compartment features two sections. The first is a narrow compartment accessed from the very front that can be used for even more additional storage (no organizers in this one). The larger bulk of the pocket features numerous organizers and two adjustable magazine pouches. It is great for holding ammo, medical kits, pens, or anything else you may need. This compartment is also covered in molle externally for you to mount additional pouches or attachments.

    Not recommended for backpacking/long distance carrying of overnight loads.
    November 1, 2016
    I had planned to use the pack for short-duration/light use bushcraft backpacking. As such, I only packed it with a few essential items including: -Lightweight parachute hammock -3x3meter hammock tarp -Hammock bugnet -Small Hatchet -Stanley Adventure Prep + Cook Set (my 2-person cookset. Individual cook set is just a GI canteen cup/lid for use with the GI canteen) - ~2 liters of water in plastic canteens including a GI canteen and a collapsible roll-up style canteen -50' rope -20' 550 cord -1 pair spare pants -GI poncho -Spare wool socks - Misc small kit items such as fire prep tinder kit, water purification tabs, headlamp, headnet, etc -Lunch for two consisting of Nature valley bars, nutrigrain bars, 2 sandwiches, and 1 ramen pack I list these things to give the reader an idea of the weight. I didn't set up a scale to fully measure it, but if I was forced to guess, I'd say north of 20lbs. Note I did not have insulation (woobie/poncho liner) added as I just didn't get around to strapping it to the bottom loops, so this is lighter than I would normally have it. Obviously way more than is necessary for just a day trip, but I wanted to test it out on a short but challenging day hike before I took it out overnight "for real". The trail was a 7 mile out-and-back over rugged, rocky terrain with many small hills (lots of up-and-down). I won't pretend that I am in the best shape or even in fairly great shape, but I've done the hike with smaller true daypacks without much issue. This load on this pack killed my shoulders and back just after the first mile. When we got to the halfway point for lunch, I was hating the pack. I had it fully adjusted to sit on my hips as best I could, but nothing seemed to help. My back and shoulders were practically shot by the time we made it back to the truck. I've carried heavier weights on more difficult terrain with other packs with no issue. The suspension "system" for this pack is just not up to the task. If it had a better way to distribute the load, I would give it two more stars as everything else about the pack was just fine.
    Solid construction. Seams appear to be strong, but had it long enough to properly test longevity. Material is thick and durable. I'd believe the seams would go before the material itself does. Loving the organizational features within the pockets. Very helpful if you don't want everything bundled into stuff sacks.
    Would prefer the smaller center pouch to be on top of the larger center pouch. A fully loaded pack makes it difficult to access the smaller pouch. The suspension, as mentioned.

    Nice pack

    I bought this to replace an LA Police gear 3 day pack, gives me just enough room for all my gear. The 3 day was good and I used it for over a year, but this one is just a bit bigger and after a couple weeks I am really liking it.

    First off, I'll just say that this backpack doesn't look all that large. That is until you start putting stuff into it. Then, man, it's massive! Personally, I could do without the clothes tie-down straps, but I can see their purpose and will refrain from cutting them out. Bag seems very durable and seems heavy duty. Funny thing is that, fully loaded with books for school, it seems really heavy until you put it on. Then, it seems a whole lot lighter. Quality stuff, as always.

    Excellent Bag. Can't beat the price point
    September 11, 2016
    I've had this bag for 3 years now. Maybe 4? I use it as my daily bag to carry my Dell laptop, a bunch of EDC stuff, extra jacket, hat, my lunch etc. I have used this as a 3+ day bag to carry my laptop and EDC plus 3-4 days of clothing. What I can't fit inside I strap on the outside. I is also very comfortable to wear when loaded. fits very nice over the shoulders and sits just right in the small of my back. After stuffing this thing full for the last few years, a portion of on of the main compartment zippers has pulled loose. Just need to take some black thread and sew it up. I keep looking at other bags to replace/upgrade this one but for the price and features I keep coming back to this bag. It has been to Michigan, New Hampshire, Md and its even been to Parris Island to retrieve my son from Boot Camp after graduation. here is my review on FB:
    Size, pocket configuration, features (emergency buckles on straps, removable waist belt, sternum strap etc). Materials are pretty good.
    A couple of small things - the slick nylon backing on the underside of the shoulder straps is slippery which can be a con if you carry it one one shoulder as I often do. I would like to see taller side pockets instead of the grab handles sewn on - i don't see the need for them and a larger pocket, on one side at least, would be good to stash a 1 lt water bottle. Lastly the interior admin pocket material did pull out on the bottom. it could be sewn stronger, or use a stronger material. That happened within one year. Zippers are fine, but can be a little sticky. Not as smooth as YKK as on Kelty or Maxpedition but then I'm not paying 150.00 for better zippers either.

    Awesome bag
    September 7, 2016
    Seems like a sturdy and well made backpack. As the picture I included shows however, the color is brown and not "coyote tan" or "coyote brown" (the small MOLLE pouch on top is "coyote tan/brown" from another manufacturer.) The color is kind of different and I personally like it, even if it is tricky to match it with other pouches.
    All stress points are double-stiched or bar-tacked. Nylon feels heavy. Price was great! Numerous organizer pockets inside. Includes rigid back-frame. Removable waistbelt.
    Zippers are not heavy-duty. Side pockets are too short for a 32 ounce Nalgene bottle, too narrow for a "GI-style" canteen.

    Used for patrol. Overall, excellent bag with for the price. It holds all my needed equipment for duty. Only drawback is the shoulder straps; they aren't the comfiest backpack straps and when you have the bag fully loaded, it doesn't help.
    Tough material Plenty of space Multiple pockets
    Shoulder strap comfort

    If I remove the plastic backplate, can I use that compartment to hold a laptop?
    on August 1, 2013

    Yes, you could put a laptop in the sleeve where the backplate is. However, it might be uncomfortable. You would be better off putting in where the hydration bladder would go if you are not going to use a bladder.

    By Adam on March 30, 2013

    Is there a way to attach a sleeping bag to the bottom of this? If so, can you tell me what item to buy to make it work.
    on March 20, 2013

    The bottom of this backpack has 4 individual MOLLE straps, 2 of which can be seen in the first picture, that can have rope or some other type of fastner run through that can hold a sleeping bag to the bottom of the pack. We do not have any sort of pouch or pocket that is designed to hold a sleeping bag.
