TRU-SPEC 3-Day Elite Backpack
SKU #: TruSpec-3Elite
Large enough to carry personal gear, extra ammo and all manners of tactical gear with dozens of compartments to store all the gear you’ll need for a three day excursion. The side compression straps compress the bag down when not fully loaded and can hold longer items, like M4s, aiming stakes, or tripods securely. Covered with universal straps for adding additional pouches allowing the user to customize the bag to the use they require.

I have a 511 about that is better quality but much heavier. This is a great pack for commutes. The configuration works well for tablets and small computers. The side pockets hold the half liter oncogene perfectly. Also room for umbrella and lunch. Built in rain cover for the northwest is a must.

Great All Around Bug Out Bag
As an LEO this has been an all around grab & go backpack for me, whether On Duty/ Off Duty, carries everything I need from important papers, first aid kit, flexible restraints etc. This Tru-Spec 3-Day Elite backpack will be replacing my 5.11 Tactical COVRT 18 backpack.
ProsHidden compartment for CCW. Numerous compartment pouches, and a Large laptop compartment, perfect for the Spartan Shield Level 3A 11x16 Ballistic Plate, which I also purchased from LAPG.

I packed this bag as a 3 day bag for hiking and disaster applications. It has enough room for my kit which includes normal shtf items and some other camping equipment. It's big enough to hold everything I need and still be comfortable to wear.

Regular Guy Review
I gave the pack 3 stars because it is a quality item as you would expect from Tru-Spec however the excessive padding that make up the rear panel give a fair amount of noticeable weight to the pack. There are alot of pockets in the front pouch I felt it may be more than needed for an assault pack imo; lastly the main compartment is said to accommodate a 17" laptop which it does however it is an extremely tight fit. I would recommend buying a Blackhawk ultralight or standard version 3 day assault pack over this model.

This back is fantastic, rugged and durable. Huge main pocket easily allows full clothing for four-five days with room for a shaving kit on top. Front pocket easily fits 15.5" laptop and tons of pockets for accessories. Fantastic bag.

Great bag for cost
I've had this as my work bag for about a week, taking the place of my condor commuter. To be perfectly honest, the main reason I wanted this bag over my other was because the tru spec has pockets that fit my coffee bottle and nalgene, whereas my condor doesn't. Placing those items inside a daypack takes up valuable space. I'm able to pack a foul weather jacket, a pair of low top boots, and still have room for lunch and other gear in the main compartment. The secondary compartment is good for small items. It has the two zippered mesh pockets to keep small items accessible. My biggest complaint about this bag is that the admin organizer is on the outlying wall. There's two stacked pockets, a couple pen sleeves, key clip, and a velcr closed pocket. Keeping items in those pockets when the bag is laying flat on the harness is difficult. There are two zippered "hidden" pockets on the front that are great for keeping a tablet or small documents/writing pads close at hand. The hidden rain cover is an awesome feature, especially here in the PNW.
ProsRoomy Durable Added weather protection that still allows the use of harness Well placed pockets for quick access to essential items.
ConsAdmin pocket would work better if it was built into the inside wall

New EDC Bag
The Tru-Spec 3-Day Elite Backpack was a great grab. With it being on sale when I purchased it, and the free watch I am completely satisfied with the quality of the material. I have this bag with me every day. I ended up putting my 13 inch MacBook Air in the hydration pouch - adding a layer of protection. The bag comfortably carries 45lbs and has held up great. Can't recommend this bag enough.
Pros-Concealed carry kidney pouch -Cinch down straps surrounding the bag -Comfortable padding on shoulders -Many small pockets to allow for miscellaneous items to fit comfortably -Multicam looks great
Cons-The Velcro for the cinch gets caught on the breathable mesh on the back - causing some cosmetic issues

This is a really heavy duty back pack. As an International traveler from Australia, my luggage gets knocked about a lot. This back pack has stood the test of baggage handlers world wide. Thank you LA Police Gear & Tru-Spec. Love it. Graham Barry Australia
ProsWell made & roomy. Carries enough for 2 weeks overseas. Comfortable to carry.
ConsA bit heavy, but that is the trade off for a quality backpack. Not really an issue though

Good bag, not as advertised
I've been using the bag for a couple weeks, traveling with a computer and work supplies, it looks well made, carries well, and fits under airplane seats There is no "Padded computer compartment that accommodates up to 17" computers". I had to buy a padded sleeve and put my computer in the main compartment. The "Large padded main compartment ..." is padded on the back panel only. Worth keeping; Gunny - keep an eye on those marketers.
Pros15.6" with sleeve, or 17" Dell notepad/laptop computer fits in the main compartment The molle straps make the bag flexible/modular Built in rain cover is good The water bottle pockets have an internal elastic strap and hold 32 oz Nalgene bottles securely 4 side compression straps work well Carries well with 20+ lbs, even bike commuting 3 compartments: main, front, kidney pad, 2 zippered pockets on front pocket Looks good with a flag patch
ConsThe top handle is too close to the top of the bag, an extra inch of strap would make it easier to grab The zippers bind up on the curved sections, YKK zippers are a lot smoother/faster I tightened the waist belt as much as possible, and still had a 6" gap to my waist, looped the excess thru the adjusters/triglides. The sternum strap is extra long as well. The Admin pocket is minimal, 2 mesh zippered pockets, 3 pockets, 1 pocket with velcro cover, plastic key clip A light colored interior lining would make things easier to find NO padded computer compartment

How much does the elite 3 day 500 d and 1050c weigh?

Hi Guys, The Tru-Spec weighs in at around 1.5 kilograms. Very strong construction, however the smaller outer pocket is just to small to take a laptop. In its defense though,this is a good quality, light weight backpack. I will be using mine again next week on my return visit to USA.

I brought this pack on the fly as I was heading out of state and my other assault packs where full. One thing I can say is: it is extremely durable but heavily weighted on its own. You will visually notice and feel the additional padding in the back plate. This padding adds bulk to the pack and takes up space internally. I recommend buying a Blackhawk 3 day assault standard or their ultralight pack instead if weight is an issue.

The weight of the backpack is fairly light. I use it for everyday use and despite age density of material very comfortable
