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.

The two small side pouches on this bag are great for throwing any small objects in, or you can also use them to hold a water bottle or two.

    Poorly constructed
    April 19, 2014
    I really wanted to like this backpack. For the price, it seemed like a great purchase. However, within the first month the zippers detached and the seams on both sides of the bag burst, detaching the outer pockets from the main compartment. The bag is still usable, but it's only held together by the buckles on either side. I guess it's worth it to spend a little extra and get a bag that will last.

    Fantastic Value
    April 18, 2014
    There is simply no way to find a better, similar bag at this price point. Sure, if you compare it to a bag that is 2X or 3X the price you will find shortcomings in this bag. But, if you are looking for a really good value backpack this is it. Upon first glance it looked smaller than I had expected. But will all the pockets and compartments stuffed into this bag you will have no issues finding a place for whatever you want to stuff in this. Plus there are a metric crap ton of molle attachment points for pouches and gear. The zippers and buckles are the weakest point of this bag, but for me that was expected at $50. I wasn't expecting to see high end zippers on this bag. Like others have stated they are stiff initially. Nut, I think all you really need is a little zipper lubrication to make them perform well. I wish that the zipper sliders were metal instead of plastic I hope they will last. The bag itself seems to be very well constructed and stitched and that exceeded my expectations. The back, shoulder and waist strap padding are all excellent. Equally as good as some of the larger outdoor long range packs I have owned. You could easily shoulder a hefty weight of gear comfortably in this bag. The only hesitation I might have would be whether or not the plastic buckles could handle a more extreme load. The padding is certainly not going to let you down. For everyday use I think the waist strap will be a nuisance, but it is removable and will probably be stuffed inside until needed for a long range expedition. The bag also seems well organized. The cavernous main compartment is easily accessible as the entire bag can open like a clam shell. Plenty of room to organize a load with smaller pouches or packing cubes. Elastic straps can hold all of that securely in place on the move. This is a great feature for traveling with the bag. Beyond that the forward compartment has tons of pockets for pens notepads and small gear. And you still have several more pockets and the hydration pocket left to stuff. The large pocket at the bottom has mesh for corralling small items, or for stuffing clothing. For outdoor use I would highly recommend waterproofing the bag (Scotchguard) thoroughly, or you better carry a rain cover. The bag is heavier that it looks even dry. If this bag became wet it's going to really weigh you down. Probably the best feature of this bag are the three carry handles. They seem very strong and allow you to hand carry the bad in either hand and in either horizontal or vertical orientation comfortably. That is a nice touch. This bag will work superbly for my intended use as a 72 Hour EDC bag. If your gear won't fit in or on this bag you have too much gear!
    Well constructed as far as the material and stitching Very roomy and well organized Tons of molle attachment points Thick padding on all the straps means comfort under load Hydration pocket, and multiple ways to route the hose Hydration pocket can easily double as a laptop pocket Nice details like the carry handles and para cord-ish zipper pulls. Great value
    Like most I wish the zippers and buckles were a little better. If the zippers and buckles would be improved it would still be a good value at $80, at $50 it is a great value despite the shortcomings. Even when empty the bag is heavier than expected, I would hate to have to carry this thing if the pack got wet. Definitely need to waterproof it well or carry a waterproof cover for it in case of rain.

    Large rip on the side
    April 15, 2014
    I had this bag for about two months and one whole side ripped open. I'm normally at a post all day so the pack has not been roughly used. Do no recommend

    Nice pack for the price
    April 15, 2014
    This pack appears to be of good quality and should serve well as a go bag for patrol. It has lots of room and the OD green is a good color. Most of the areas of stress are only single stitched, but again, for the price it's a nice pack.
    Lots of room Hook and loop on outside Padded waist belt Price

    Great bag and it seems to be well though through.
    Lots of pockets and velcro for all things.
    Lots of velcro on the straps make it a process to tighten or loosen any straps for comfort.

    Big but organized
    April 13, 2014
    I bought this bag to use as a gym bag. I CrossFit, so it comes with lots of gear. The bag allows me to keep all of my shoes, wraps, knee sleeves, jump rope etc organized. The side pouches are large enough for water bottles and protein shakers, so I don't have to worry about anything spilling in the bag.
    Organizational pouches Inner straps and clips
    The bag is a bit bulky for my 5'3" frame

    Great bag for the money
    April 10, 2014
    Happy with this bag for the price. I have been using it daily since it came in.
    Extremely tough. Plenty of space.
    I have to constantly readjust shoulder straps as they do not stay where they are set to. Being picky here: the compartment with the organization pockets could be set up better. Don't need so many pen pickets. Some pockets for pistol mags would be great.

    Great bag!
    March 30, 2014
    I've had my Tactical Operator Backpack for a couple weeks and so far I'm really enjoying it. I've not carried a backpack in years, so this is a big change from my usual messenger style EDC bag. This backpack is my EDC pack, plus it has plenty of room to throw in a day or two of clothes.
    Solid construction. Lots of room. Good internal organization.
    Flaps makes opening and closing the main compartments more difficult than it should be. The bottom compartment on front is sort of "floppy", which makes the pack not stand upright. The internal admin panel is noisy.

    Overall a great deal for the money
    March 29, 2014
    Okay guys, have had this pack since August of 13 so I guess it is time to write a review of my experience with it. First of all let me just say that I have 3 of the LAPG 3 day packs, 2 of which (the first 2 I ordered) are still in use by me, and the 3rd is used daily by my oldest son as a school bag. The quality changed from the first 2 to the 3rd. Which I will get into below. First order of LAPG 3 day packs was in Feburary of 10. Both packs are thicker nylon, probably closer to 800D and had YKK (BIG/TOUGH) zippers. The buckles were the weak point and were the only thing that I replaced utilizing issue ITW kit. I did add hook loop material for name tapes and unit insignia to the two exterior pouches as this was lacking but not a reason for complaint as the bags were cost effective comparitively speaking. The third bag I ordered for my son is clearly a 600D nylon, and does NOT have the YKK zippers. The material is strong and has served him well as he is 9 and beats the (insert choice explitive here) out of everything he has unfortunately. With that said...onto the Operator: The Operator came in and was surprisingly heavy, right out of the box. Upon initial inspection I found that the material is the same as the 3rd LAPG 3 day pack my son has. The buckles are of the same quality as well, and were promptly replaced with ITW kit as I had failures previously with "Factory" hardware on the first run of LAPG bags, and did not want this to happen again. The zippers are the same, not YKK and were stiff as hell. I treated with beeswax and removed the cheap nylon pulls and replaced with 550 cord. They pull MUCH easier now. The multiple carry handles are a nice touch, but eat up some of the MOLLE real estate. I ended up wrapping them with a 550 cobra weave in orer to stiffen them up and make them easier to grab while wearing gloves. The interior "dividers" which are what appeared to be thin polyester were poorly sewn in and were already tearing away from the nylon bag material, therefore I utilized a stitch remover and discarded it. Ultimately the pack appears to be larger in the pictures than it actually is. It does hold quite a bit, but you better get your Martha Stewart organizational skills honed to get full use of the space. Overall I have deployed this pack multiple times in various environments and it has held up well. It is relatively comfortable while wearing a rear plate, however I usually utilize a front plate only setup which THOROUGHLY enhances comfort. On a side note: It rolled down a hill and over a rocky cliff, a fall of about 45 feet and traveled another 2-300 yards before stopping, with no damage...popped a few chem lights that were in the outer pouch but the bag did just fine.
    Multiple carry handles, hook and loop is already there, opens up in a similar fashion to the Blackhawk STOMP bag, is actually pretty tough. holds stuff!
    Material is not as tough as former LAPG bags, where did the YKK zippers go? Interior "dividers" were weak and poorly sewn in, buckles are the WEAKEST point of this bag...ITW hardware kit for the MOLLE II bags works superbly to address this!

    Too small
    March 28, 2014
    I thought this item was going to be bigger. In the picture it seems that is of a really big size which is why i decided to purchase it but it was not the case.
    it has a lot of great features
    way smaller than advertised.

    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.

    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.
