    I do love it. Perfect for one person stuff. Wish it had a pocket for hydration pack. I put my hydration pack where the cushioning is but it had to be a wide hydration bladder
    Nice features
    No dedicated place to put hydration pack

    Operating efficiently
    November 16, 2015
    There are more backpacks on the market today than Quaker makes oats. Some are good....some are bad. I must have researched at least 20 different bags before making a final decision. You also need to understand just what will you be toting around in selecting a bag. Keep it light as possible and simple. The LA Police gear Operator Backpack is just big enough to carry the essentials you need. Well built and feature friendly too! If I have any complaints it would be the side pouches built into the bag. If the openings could be just a tad larger! But hey, that is a minor quibble. This is a lot of bag for the price as well. I think you would be hard pressed to find a bag that offers as much as the Operator Backpack for price paid. Thank you LA Police Gear for making an outstanding product!
    Lots of space. Main compartment has straps for lashing down items. Able to add a water hydration system if you want. Well built and sturdy. The hip or side strap pads actually work very well. The side strap pads can be removed and stored. Love this feature. The water hydration section has a support board inserted to eliminate accidental puncture.
    The side pouches are great but I wish they were just a little bit wider at the opening. The zippers work pretty good but the para cord type attachment to the zipper housing seems a little thin. Other than that they are fine.

    Good bag but won't hold up to weight
    November 12, 2015
    I love LA Police gear. Their customer service is above the rest. I got this bag because my last edc bag was falling apart. I was really happy with how this bag was set up. I like to have all my stuff organized so I know where it's at. It held all my edc, survival, medical and school stuff just fine. With that I need to touch on the bad. I have go through 2 of these bags. The first my dog chewed on but it was still servisable the 2ND la police gear sent me to replace the one my dog ate. Both ended up with having the same problem. The seam to the main compartment zipped splits from having to much weight in the bag. After one hike with about 20 pounds it split. I still think it's a great pack. Just need to carry less weight.
    Organization, lots of room,
    Seams split easy

    4 years of daily use and I'll be buying another soon.
    November 3, 2015
    I commute by motorcycle and have been using this pack *daily* since I got it 4 years ago. That's approximately 800 days where my pack is loaded and hanging from my shoulders for 50 miles of bouncy country roads and does not include the hikes and weekend trips where it served as my sole piece of luggage. Only now is it starting to come apart at the seam above the hydration pocket. I've jammed it full with cold weather gear that I need on the morning ride but didn't in the evening and have never had any problem at all with zippers breaking or opening while I'm on the road. I wish it had rubberized shoulder straps and Nalgene bottle-sized side pockets, but these are suggestions for improvement and not complaints about the current product. For this price, there is nothing better on the market than this pack.
    Amazing value compared to similar products by major brands Excellent design and construction Great interior storage and organization
    I have no complaints. This pack has exceeded anything I'd expected at this price. Please note that the pic of the torn seam is meant to show the only failure thus far after years of constant use and IS NOT a complaint in any way.

    Pretty Good for the price!
    October 22, 2015
    I am a member of the Civil Air Patrol (USAF Civilian Auxiliary) and am the emergency services officer for my squadron. I was looking for a good, but inexpensive pack for my 24 hour bag for disaster relief and SAR missions. So far this fits the bill. It looks and feels pretty rugged. The stitching looks good (had a Fox tactical bag that ripped with very little use). It is large enough for all my 24 hour gear and with some "tricking out" with extra MOLLE pouches (there is plenty of webbing) could possibly work as a 72hr bag (especially in the Spring/Summer when I need to carry less cold weather gear). Plenty of pouches and organizational pockets. I haven't put it into any major test yet but I think it will do all right. Might consider getting a second one to make as a spare "Bug Out" bag.
    Good pack for the price. Could meet a variety of uses. Pretty rugged at first inspection, but don't know if it would take long term day to day abuse such as a year long military deployment.
    If there is one con to this bag, while it is "hydration compatible" it does not have a seperate compartment for the bladder. It sits in the main pack and has straps to secure it. I worry about springing a leak and everything else in the pack getting wet. At least there are drain holes.

    Very good backpack
    October 21, 2015
    I am satisfied with this backpack, it is what I was expecting and I love almost everything about it. The only thing I don't like is the zipper doesn't open as smoothly as other backpacks I have had.

    A Great All Around Everyday Pack
    October 20, 2015
    I received this pack as a gift and honestly it is my most used birthday present! This pack carries about 20 pounds of college text books and another 8 pounds of stuff I find I need to carry in it (Multi-tool, small med kit, extra batteries etc, etc,) and after taking it camping and for a short hike to a bat cave I know this pack is a very versatile. Ill also add that I am a 18 year old 5 foot 8 male who weigh about 115 pounds so as you can imagine I do not have the biggest shoulders and this pack fits me well after spending some time with the pack weighting down and adjusting the shoulder straps!
    Plenty of space for all your stuff and it is very well designed as to keep it all organized. Also it is excellent quality materials I have found that no matter how much strain I put on the bag in a day to day bases I never makes any straining noises (If that makes sense?) the only complaints of doing strenuous endeavors is me.
    The only real con I think of is the straps. Though there is nothing really wrong with the straps they can just seem overwhelming at times but this can easily be overcome by slowing down and taking your time to decide what you need.

    Maybe for light duty use
    October 12, 2015
    I had high hopes for this bag since I have owned two of the three day packs that are smaller and had no issues. I took this one on a 10 mile hike loaded with about 30 pounds including my water. The main compartment zipper blew out several times. Stitching on the lower back pad started to come unraveled. Overall, the bag is very functional and looks great with lots of storage, but its just can't hold up to any kind of heavy duty use. Not that 30lbs for a 10 mile hike should be considered that heavy duty use I guess. I'm going to return it.
    Lots of molle, nice handles, very adjustable
    Poor zipper quality Not very durable (back padding material gets runs)

    Well made
    October 10, 2015
    I love this pack, rugged, great color, I have the coyote brown, they call it tan. I use mine as a car/emergency bag, but would be OK for a day hike also. I wouldn't use it as multi day, it's a bit heavy. If you don't mind the weight, then it would be fine. Lots of room, straps, webbing and a great waist belt, the shoulder straps, very comfortable as well. For the money, you can't beat this pack, you would pay allot more for a comparable/name brand bag.
    Room, color, comfort and ruggedness
    Weight, maybe zippers

    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.
