Prepared Citizen Classic v2.0 (CLOSEOUT SALE. FINAL SALE.)

The "Prepared Citizen Classic" backpack is purpose-built for concealed carry and ballistic protection while looking like the most generic backpack from the "lifestyle" market, in order not to attract attention to itself.  The rearmost "secret" compartment may be used for CCW, for tablets, for securing important documents during travel or for the addition of a ballistic panel (not included).

The current Version 2.0 introduced in October 2019 is the 2nd limited edition run of this wildly popular backpack and made in a total quantity of 2000 pieces:  300 in Black, 750 in Wolf Gray, 650 in Dark Blue and 300 in OD Green.

The 4 major differences as compared to its predecessor:
  • Large central Maxpedition logo was omitted for a lower key appearance
  • 2" x 3.75" loop field replaced the logo, for adding morale / ID patches
  • Hook & loop wings added to manage shoulder strap webbing slack
  • Backpack strap connections to pack improved for strength

Like the earlier version, the Prepared Citizen Classic v2.0 has an overall capacity of 1364 cu. in. / 22L with a dual-side accessible, fully looped lined concealed carry compartment.  It is built extra tough with Teflon-coated 1000-denier nylon fabric, YKK zippers, Duraflex buckles, meticulously reinforced construction and the high degree of quality, fit and finish that you've come to expect from all Maxpedition® products.

        Good Back Pack - High Shipping Costs

        The back pack was of high quality and should last for years. One thing that was disappointing was the cost of shipping, almost $20. Not sure I'd pay that shipping cost again.
