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.

    My review for this bag
    I like this bag, all of the reviews comparing it to 5.11's are right. This is a really good bag. The other bags and items I have bought from LA save for 3 other items have been gifts and all of them have been loved. This is a great bag for a great price.

    Almost perfect.
    Build quality is superb. Well thought out Velcro strap management that keeps all loose strap ends neetky tucked in. Feels great on and looks even better! Only 4 out of five stars because of the waist belt. Yes, it removable. But for me, I like to wear it sometimes, while others, I don’t. It is not a quick take off. It does go in decent though. There is no real good place to tuck it into if you leave it on and don’t use it. The waist bands are padded and go all the way around your waist which is awesome when in use but seriously get in the way when not in use. Other than that, it is a supremely built pack. Very heavy even totally empty so take that into consideration but still, just a great job by LAPG!!

    Best budget bag out there, hands down.
    I've had this for about a year now and traveled thousands of miles with it, and will buy a second one. It's very versatile. I like being able to remove the waist straps. You can pack so much into this bag if you do it right. For traveling on a plane it's perfect, I traveled many times without any check in, just this bag. But you should remove the back plate. It has a long aluminum strip that airport security would have problem with as a carry on. Take off the waist straps is recommended too. Then you have a bag that fits on the carry on limits if you don't over pack. The should straps can be put away into where the back plate pocket is and then you can carry it like a bag in your hand or as a backpack. Stowing away the straps to put in the overhead bin is useful . Many people have commented on my bag (i have the tan) at airports and on the plane, all impressed with it. The color is good choice for airports, easy to see and looks very civilian, yet unique for your bag, so you don't ever mistake it. Highly recommend.

    Outstanding value
    I just got my Operator backpack yesterday and spent the evening getting it set up. Very impressed with the overall quality of the pack. For the price point, it is an outstanding value; you can pay much more for a Maxpedition or other major name, but the increment in cost will not be worth the added value, in my view. In fact, I sold a Maxpedition Falcon II and replaced it with this pack. The pack is very thoughtfully designed and put together. Lots of storage options. No loose threads anywhere. Everything is nice and tight. Zippers operate well; adding a little lubricant doesn't hurt. Love the little velcro wraps for the ends of many of the straps. Make the whole thing look very neat and slick. The plastic backplate has an aluminum spine, which makes it very strong. It feels completely solid when you have it on your back, and it helps keep the pack from collapsing on itself when you set it on the floor.
    ProsImpressive design and construction. No flaws, loose threads, poorly done seams. PVC lining to provide water resistance (it is not waterproof). Nice array of pockets.
    ConsIt's a little heavy, especially after I added an LAPG exterior admin pouch and put in travel supplies and first aid kit. But, on the other hand, it's very solid.

    Was hesitant to pull the trigger on this have been burnt by cheap bags before. Oh my god. From best I can tell at initial review this bag is just as good or better than 5.11, Eberlestock, and Blackhawk bags I own or have know. Only time will tell if it can match the endurance. But from what I see and the feel of it I'm very VERY optimistic.

    Used this to create a survival bag with all the things spread around the house. Now have it all in one place that's easy to grab and throw in vehicle for if/when needed. Could also be a great range bag, or - shock - it's intended purpose as a backpack. Just the right size for a variety of uses.
    ProsSolid construction Variety of uses Expandable with Molly bags Hydration capable Hip belt fits!
    ConsNone, seriously.

    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.

    Which ounce water bottles do the LA Police Gear Operator Backpack Side Pockets hold or are they better used 4 Canteens?
    6 Answers
    The side pocket will fit a 32oz/1L Nalgene bottle but the zipper will not close. The top of the pocket comes up to the 32oz mark on the bottle and will not zip closed with the bottle in the pocket.
    EG
    on February 15, 2018
    from Orange CA
    The side pockets are not designed for a water bottle. They are almost square. You could put a small canteen in there I suppose. It depends what size water bottle you have. If you have a typical 16oz plastic bottle from any store, there a tons of places inside the pack for that. Right behind the front panel, there is a deep pocket that would even support a larger bottle than a 16oz. I can fit two bottles of soda in there. Also, you can purchase the LA Police Gear 32oz water bottle pouch with MOLE attachments to attach to this pack. Hope this helps. Pictured is a 24oz bottle.

    Janice

    from Oakland, CA
    I'm not familiar with the size of canteens. The side pockets will fit a standard Nalgene 1000ml (liter) wide mouth bottle if the top sticks with the bottle top shoulder sticking out 1.5 inch. The bottle squeezes in and will take a little of the width room space away from the interior where the bottles are.

    on February 15, 2018
    from Torrance, CA
    A standard, off-the-shelf 0.5 liter (16.9 fl oz) water bottle fits perfectly in the side pockets. One in each. With the water bottles we have, the zipper just barely makes it around. If you used a taller bottle, you'd just have to tuck the top portion of the pocket behind the bottle and leave it unzipped. The pocket should be deep enough that most bottles will stay in.

    Can you wash the backpacks in the washer?
    1 Answers
    Based on my assessment of the bag I got just this week, I would not. I think you'd ruin it. For spills inside, it seems like it would be easy enough to clean the PVC lining and nylon surfaces with something like a Clorox wipe or a damp, soapy sponge. For the exterior, I'd start with a damp soapy sponge or washcloth and spot clean and work my up the ladder of cleaning options from there. I guess you could ask a dry cleaner if they could clean it on a gentle cycle.

Gloves winter watch cap, misc personal grooming items. Pair of light flat running shoes. Soft shell pants. Small size cycling water bottle. That pretty much sums it up. When I carry my duty it doesn't sit like I had planned but it does fit without ruining belt by attempting to bend fold etc. If you are creative it will fit inside with no problem. I still have room for small items . an occasional jacket and such. Hope this helped.

    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.

    Was able to takedown a 10.5" AR Pistol (using Sig first gen arm brace) and place in main compartment of bag with no issue (each part along outside edge of bag). Flash/Comp on muzzle was < 2". Suspect any longer and it wouldn't fit except at an angle. Can arrange straps/clips that are already there to 'hold' the halves but planning to modify the bag with some hook/loop straps. Pretty sure anything beyond a 10.5" barrel wouldn't fit nor would not breaking down the AR pistol. Note that adding AR pistol/mags/ammo adds a lot of overall weight to the bag.

    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?
    3 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.

    The bottom of the bag is not padded, but if you were to use the straps in the main compartment to cinch down the laptop it would not contact the bottom of the bag. I would still put something in the bottom of the bag as padding if you're rough with your bags like I am.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.
