I’ve not heard of Exos-Gear before, and I don’t personally know the owner or designer or anyone at the company… So this review is completely without any built in bias. I’ve been looking for a good Tactical Pack to ungrade from my little Drago Pack that I used as an EDC laptop and work bag. Mainly it packs my laptop, various tech accessories I need, and a notepad and pens. And it’s a carrier for some spare handgun magazines and a couple blades. But really that’s about all it can carry. If I was going to go Adventure I needed something more capable. From what I’ve seen online, the EXOS-GEAR’s BRAVO packs seemed like a perfect solution, so I had to try it out. And I’m glad I did. This is a solid pack.
It’s really easy to say that this is a great pack for the money… Because this is NOT an expensive pack. In fact… It’s cheap. It’s less than $40 bucks. But saying that it’s a great pack for the money really doesn’t do it justice. It’s a great pack. Period. The fact that it’s Un-Expensive is just a total bonus.
If I had any complaint about the pack, it would be that I’d have liked more area for moto-patches. Just because I like patches. There’s a spot for patches on each side, but not on the face of the pack as I’d have liked to have seen. But that’s a small complaint and really a Non-Issue because I’ve never seen a mission critical patch before.
Having got one just to try out – I’m going to be ordering a few more for my Sons, because they need some good packs too. The other option I was looking at was literally double the money for a pack that is no better. So I’m pleased with this one.
The Bravos Series packs – and Exos-Gear makes a more Urban one – comes in some other colors. Black, OD-Green, and Grey, as well as the Coyote Tan as pictured. Order one Here.
