The original urban tactical pack

Rugged enough for the field and also designed for urban & suburban applications, the original Monsoon™ Gearslinger® carries on your right shoulder and sits on your left hip. 

It features a durable teardrop-shaped design that includes a spacious main compartment, back-to-back pockets, fixed shoulder strap & concealable waist strap, internal MP3 player pouch & rubberized headphone port and a water resistant protective over-flap. 

Dual hydration pockets accommodate a 100oz/3L hydration reservoir and 32oz/1L water bottle to help keep you hydrated on long trips (sold separately).


The ergonomic fixed-strap Gearslinger® rotates 270 degrees to the front of the body, giving you complete top-down access to horizontal pockets. You can easily get to your gear while sitting, standing or moving throughout your day.

I find that I'd the middle of the back sits in the small of my back it is a joy to carry with 15-20 lbs. There are just a few things though. 1. I wish they would have squared out the bottle holder like on other packs not a deal breaker though it still works fine. 2. I wish they put extra female buckles on the bottom of the pack for ... More details
