What a great backpack all around. It is not too big and not too small. Perfect for hiking, shift work, or a Beat bag. Light weight, strong, and has plenty of useful pockets. I bought it with a Rifle Sleeve (see my rifle sleeve review) and it was my everyday pack for three months. I found the opening for the Rifle Sleeve was a little tight when I had a scoped rifle with a 50mm objective lens. Any AR with RDS had no issues fitting. The Hook and Hang thru system worked perfect and was very secure when hiking. I ended up losing the pack to my wife when she fell in love with it, now it is her EDC pack. I moved on to the Tactix 1-Day Plus Backpack (see my separate review). The price is right for a backpack that will outlast you.

I've had this pack for over a year now and love it. The quality is amazing. It is extremely durable yet lightweight to carry. Has plenty of small pouches and pockets to keep smaller items separated so I'm not hunting for them at the bottom of the large compartment. I own several items from FT and am always impressed with their quality but more impressed with the price point. My advice......buy it! Keep up the good work FT. My only complaint is there is no store front any where (yet) since I live like three miles from their distribution point.

I bought the Specialist 1/2 day backpack a few months ago. I’ve used it carrying 20# weights in it for a GoRuck Light event. I completed the event in Yorktown, Va on 10-15-17. The pack held up just fine. I would like to have seen drain holes in each pocket to help the water drain and a loop of some sort to hang a hydration pack in the middle compartment but otherwise no major complaints. I’ll just add my own drain holes on my pack. Thanks for a well made product once again.

This bag screams quality in every detail. There is no part of this bag where you would think they cheaped out on this part and it'll probably break in a few months. The assembly is beautifully done, you can tell First Tactical takes pride in their products.

I got it as an EDC and after loading it up it meets all my needs. One minor complaint, the zipper into the glasses pocket is a little on the small side. I have a glasses case to keep my frames from getting crushed, and I can barely squeeze them through the opening of the glasses pocket. If the glasses pocket was hardened to protect lenses from getting crushed, or if the opening was larger the bag would be 100% perfect.

I fully recommend this bag, it is awesome, and I'm thrilled to call it mine!

Love this bag! Heavy duty padding on the shoulder straps. Quality gear. Lighter than the bag it replaced. Not sure it needs the gab handle on the bag as it has one on the shoulder straps just 2" apart.
Benjamin Garcia from Texas on Sep 01, 2016
~ Just received this pack and - "instantly" - changed out the pack from the 24hr RUSH to this one . . . .

~ same size as the the competitor (but) hellalot more comfortable and one important thing I noticed straight away when wearing it, that stood out was . ..its placement on my back.

~ I am retired military and in a wheelchair, so I was looking for a pack that didn't ride too low, as I moved about in the chair, was easy to remove, and could take a beating without any compromises.

~ I used 2 of the competitor's packs (sling and strap versions) and though they did the job, I still had issues when it came to back placement and comfort.

~ when I placed this pack on my back, this pack was noticeably more comfortable and the straps are just amazing! (trust me on this, former 11B here)
~ its a perfect size, reminiscent of a small patrol pack (and) fits great on the back.

~ This is the perfect size for my specific needs, the chair, as it rides (just above) the chairs sport seatback, so it doesn't interfere with any movement . . .

~ the ONLY thing I would recommend to this pack, is that it had another (line) of velcro real estate added to both sections (top and main) as it would then be perfect (imo).

~ Do I recommend this pack? - YES.

This bag is tough and screams quality. I own other bags that are "well built" but always seemed to be left wanting a better feature; a strap, buckle, pocket, etc. This bag gets it right. The shoulder straps are incredible. They're contoured and heavily padded. The buckle and straps are heavy duty and well placed. The pockets are generous and the smaller accessory pocket has the best interior chassis I've seen. The hook and hang system is genius. I can't wait to see what's next!
