Description

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.

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.

    SO PERFECT IN FIT, FEATURES, FUNCTION, & PRICE THAT I BOUGHT 2 OF THESE BACKPACKS
    My High Sierra backpack, which I used as a gym bag, finally broke down. So, I was in the market for another equivalently-sized backpack. I was considering a 5.11 Rush 24 or 72, because I own 2 5.11 Rush 12s which have lasted about 3 times longer than the old High Sierra backpack. But the 24 was too small and the 72 was too big, and the prices of those 5.11 backpacks were approximately more than double the price of the High Sierra. I also considered the LAPG 3-day backpack, but the 2nd biggest compartment was too small for my purposes. Fortunately, I came across this LAPG Operator Backpack. The size is between the 5.11 Rush 24 and 72. The main compartment measures approximately 19"L x 13"W x 5"H, big enough to accommodate a folded CA-compliant Keltec SU-16. The fit, features, and function suit my purposes perfectly. The price is about 50% lower than the High Sierra and 5.11 backpacks. Durability-wise, this LAPG backpack is definitely much better than the High Sierra and seemingly pretty close to the 5.11s. Time will tell. All those positives persuaded me to reluctantly set aside the negative fact that these LAPG backpacks are made in Vietnam. After all, I am not a wealthy person.
    ProsPerfect fit, features, function, & price. Durability seemingly pretty close to the 5.11 Rush backpacks.
    ConsMade in Vietnam.

    I just received my bag and haven't had a chance to put to use yet. I'm impressed with the construction of the bag at this price. The zippers seem to be heavy duty along with the material used to make the bag. I'm also very pleased with the promptness with which my order was filled and shipped. I look forward to doing more business with this company.
    ProsHeavy duty construction. Great price for a bag of this quality.
    ConsZippers seem a little stiff, but since the bag is brand new they probably need to be used.

    Amazing Pack
    Whatever you want a 45L pack to do, this one will do it, and more. It only suffers from it's age because if it had the new laser cut molle and the yoke type back straps it would be perfect. Other than that, it is!

    Great Backpack and Very Spacious
    The Operator Backpack is very durable and does not need to be treat delicately. It offers a generous amount of storage space for all your needed gear. I use mine for hunting, hiking, camping, and fishing; I always manage to fit everything I need in the backpack with room to spare. Because of the well-designed waist straps, you will not notice the weight resting completely on your shoulders (they are removable if you don't need them).
    Pros-Spacious -Many compartments -Sits well on shoulders and hips -Amazing waist straps
    Cons-The backpack itself (empty) is heavy (but the great waist and shoulder straps offset that)

    1 Answers
    The backplate compartment is where the hydration bladder would go and there is a hole at the top of that compartment that allows you to feed the hose through and secure it down either the right or left straps.

    Could this hold a Sbr or a take down rifle?
    3 Answers
    I don't own either right now, but the usable height inside the main compartment is 21" from bottom to top, a little more if it is at and angle. the inside depth is about 5 inches. There are two horizontal and two vertical straps in that compartment to help secure your cargo. I think that should work, but with these dimensions maybe you can measure what you are planning to carry. Hope this will help

    Yes, but in its stock configuration it does not have specific tie down straps or Velcro straps for that purpose. A 12" barrel with long brake, say Lantac Dragon would be a tight fit and would distort the bag diagonally. I used a 10" Blkout, TranQuillo muzzle device and the skinny MI forend with Battlelink Minimal stock to answer your question. It was empty besides that. I use mine to haul my PRS crap at matches. I am non Mil and non LEO.

    I'm 5' 2'' would this be too long on me? I'm deciding on this or the 3 day pack. This one has more organization that's why I'm leaning towards this one but I want to make sure it won't be to big.
    6 Answers
    The Operator pack will be fine for someone who is 5' 2". The back straps are fully adjustable, and there is a sternum strap and a waist strap as well to tightly secure the pack to one's body. I believe the 3 day pack is actually larger, so I would go with the Operator pack if you don't want too big a pack, and as well for the organization aspects.

    I use the 72hr backpack for a personal 72hr go bag and the operator bag for vehicle use or long term, if you are 5-2 i would recomend the 72hr bag, it will get heavy enough once you fill it up, the operator bag full is extreamly heavy due to the amount of space you can fill.

It has plenty of organization and i love how they make up the unused space with mesh pockets. I will say this bag may seem a bit longer than most bags, but i think its definitely worth it. I would say though that i dont think this bag is too long for your height. I think youll be extremely pleased with it as i am. Very well made and constructed. I hope this helps your decision

    Not having a visual on your physique and myself being six foot, my guess is the bag will be a bit long for you and may end up hanging below your waist as the bag is good size and when heavily loaded will tend to ride lower when lightly added. it is more than a daypack for hiking or daily use for sure. the 3-day pack should allow plenty of organization and cargo for long weekend or overnight events. hope this helps.

    Hi Emily I am 6'1 tall 135lbs male(my mom bought this for me this is why the answer may have a female name) the bag fits me great I bought it last week on monday and it got here this monday,I have not worn it much but when I did it felt comfortable and not too big. The 3 day pack is only 1inch shorter in height it has 300 cubic inches less than the operator bag and does not have side pockets so you would have to buy a water bottle pouch to go along with it, and yes this has no shortage of organization. What is also great is the quick release buckles for the straps are the same buckles that are used on the compression staps so if a buckle for the straps breaks and you are in a bug out situation or some other bad environment you do not have to worry about finding replacments.

    Will 2 500ml commercially packed water bottles (I.e. Poland Springs) fit side by side in each of the 2 side pockets, for a total of carrying 4 bottles? Will they zip up?
    2 Answers
    You may be able to fit two bottles in each pouch, but you might not be able to zip them shut. The Poland Springs 500ml (16oz) bottles are 8 inches in height. I can put one Nalgene, 450ml bottle, which is 7in in height in the pocket and zip it shut, and there is a tad of head-space left. The Poland Springs bottles are going to be a bit thinner in diameter, so you can probably squeeze two in. It's a very close call. But even if you can't zip them shut, you should be able to put the pouch lid over to caps. Even without that, those bottles will be secure if your worried about them falling out while on the move.

    Negative. It's just the nylon material and there isn't any padding at all. There are "luggage" like straps on the inside that can possibly secure your laptop from touching the bottom of the bag, but I would recommend placing your laptop in some sort of protective sleeve of you're going to store a laptop in the main compartment of this bag.

    Yeah back pack should have no problem being a carry on, its the size of the small luggage case. Just be mindful of which airline your going to be on I know spirit has really small planes and might effect carry on size.

    Should be fine. It's not massive. Even fully loaded I see people with larger mini suitcases as carry on bags. The also have an LA Police Gear 3 day pack that is slightly smaller. However, If you put knives and shotshells on it like have it could be an issue at the airport. : ) Great pack!!

    Should not be a problem. I've carried small suitcases about the same size without any problems. I've also seen flyers with tactical packs such as this one boarding a plane. However if u load it to it's full capacity it might not fit in the overhead bin so don't overstuff it and you should be ok

    Absolutely. In fact, I've taken it on two flights and didn't even use it as my carry on but as my extra bag. The difference being, I was able to squeeze it under the seat in front of me enough to be out of the way and took an additional dufflebag as my carry on to throw in the overhead compartment. just as a reference, I had the main compartment completely full but the front and side pouches were either empty or partially filled.

    August 28, 2016
    I bought this bag and the only problem is the waist strap is too short. I have the straps on both sides extended out and when I buckle the belt, one side slips out of the keeper or restrainer. If either side strap was 3-4 inches longer, that would fix the problem. Would a Max Janus extender fix the problem? Do the buckles on the Janus fit inside of the Operator waist strap buckles? Or is there some oter waist belt extender you carry that would work. I really like this backpack
    3 Answers
    Are you sure you're talking about the Operator? I just checked mine, and A) I weight over 300 lbs and have no problems with the girth of the waist belt, and B) the ends of the straps are doubled over and sewn so that they can't pop out. I wonder if you got a one-off or something.

    A solution that I found was the replace the lap belt with the Condor battle belt. It fits just right and is comfortable then u can add any size interior belt u like. Hope that helps. Great backpacks though. I use them for the family bug out / 72 hr packs and general hiking.

    Yes the seems are double stitched. It is a very well made bag. The stiching is well done. It is double tacked where it is needed. The bag is a steal for the price and the quality of the fabrics and the construction. There is also a good amount of internal organization with the built in mesh pockets and dividers. The backpack has a stiffening panel as well to keep its shape. That can also double as a kneeling platform or a seat while in the woods. It has more positives going for it and I have not seen a bag that can come close to it for under $200. The only negatives I have so far are that it is a bit heavy, but that is also expected a bit due to the materials used. The only other negative I have so far is that the sternum strap is not removable. Otherwise it serves my purpose very well. I am currently using two as 72hour BOB out bags for my wife and I. I carry 20-25 pounds in mine comfortably. I also have had good luck using the molle to attach pouches to suit my needs better.

    Can you strap a 20" hunters axe to the sides or inside the large pocket?
    3 Answers
    Good question because this is why I wanted the pack as well. I have a Gransfors Bruk Small Forest Axe and wanted it to fit. The head of the axe will not fit in the side pouch but you have two options. You can put the pole of the axe in the pouch and tighten the two compression straps on the sides to hold it in place. This will have the axe head upright though and then you lose most of the storage in the pouch. Your other option is that it will likely fit in the main compartment which is where I currently store mine. It is certainly big enough for the small forest axe and there are ways you can adjust the pack with molle to accommodate your axe. I hope this helps.
    Jordan
    on June 6, 2016

    Kind of. On the sides you have compression straps so you could easily stash the axe there securely as long as you had the straps cinched down tight. Unfortunately, the lower side pockets don't have a pass through (they're stitched down top and bottom) but it has MOLLE straps so you could attach a MOLLE KaBar adapter (pic att) to secure the lower part of the handle. The pocket will have to be empty if you want the axe to lie flat against the ruck. As far as the interior pocket, it's 20 inches tall so putting the axe in there will probably be a tight fit. I'm assuming you have a sheath for it! :D

    You can strap a 20" axe. It just depends on how you do it. I currently have a Gerber combo axe inside the large compartment, no problem. But to make better use of my compartment, I'm going to carabiner the axe sheaf to the outside. Versatile pack, most ideas are possible.
