I have been looking for a new Every Day Carry (EDC) bag and a smaller range bag that won’t fall apart on me and won’t break the bank, so I thought I’d try out a few… I ran across 3V Gear’s Outlaw Sling Packs and thought that it might work at 684 cubic inches. At a little under $40, it is certainly affordable option.
3V Gear’s Outlaw sling-styled pack is hydration-capable and designed to provide quick and easy access to your gear without having removing the pack. Simply swing the pack from your back to your chest to gain access to gear stored in the side oriented compartments making the pack Concealed Carry compatible.
The Outlaw pack is made from a heavy-duty 600D PVC nylon with double-stitched seams and a lifetime warranty. All zipper-pulls are made from a rust-resistant nylon threaded with para-cord for durability and noise reduction.
The back panel is made from a soft and flexible molded Ethylene Vinyl Acetate (also known as EVA) which is a copolymer of ethylene and vinyl acetate. This provides a durable, vented and waterproof back panel. There is an 8″ x 15″ side-accessible zippered pocket along the back panel that is perfect for a 2 to 3 -liter hydration system with built-in paracord straps for supporting the hydration bladder. In addition, there is a hole located at the top of the pocket and straps along the shoulder strap for holding the hydration hose in place.
The fully-adjustable shoulder strap is padded for comfort. Its sling style design provides a full range of motion and includes an optional stabilizer strap for additional support. The Outlaw pack also features a reinforced top and side handle as alternative carry options.
On the left-side of the pack, there is an easily accessible water bottle pocket approximately 9″ tall and 4″ in diameter with an adjustable strap and push button lock to keep the bottle firmly in place.
The side-accessible main pocket is 15″ x 8″ x 4″ providing 480 cubic inches of usable space lined with various zippered and non-zippered internal compartments and a compression strap. Perfect for smaller laptops and iPad-sized devices.
The topmost front pocket is 4.5″ x 7.5″ x 2″ providing 68 cubic inches of space, also with a built-in pocket and 3 elastic bands sewn in for securing gear. The outer surface of the upper pocket features a MOLLE Velcro ID panel with 3V Gear Logo and American flag 3D PVC patches.
The lower front pocket is 8.5″ x 8″ x 2″ providing 136 cubic inches of space with a built-in pocket and spring clip inside. The outer surface of the lower pocket features a zippered pocket and MOLLE and PALs compatible webbing.
On the exterior of the pack, there is a long compression strap running down the center to keep the pack tight and your gear secure.
This pack is lightweight and assembled from high-quality materials. Perfect for a well-organized EDC daypack if its small stature works for you. My only issue with the pack was after the first use, the elastic band material became a little frayed and it got worse from there… Other than that, the rest of the pack held up nicely, even when overstuffed. AT only $40, this pack is a good value.
For me, this bag turned out to be a little small in size. I need a little more room so my quest for the perfect EDC will continue… With 3V Gear’s lifetime warranty and Amazon’s outstanding return policy, returning the defective pack was a snap.
