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.

Our friends at High Speed Gear gave Jesse one of their new M24P Day Packs to try out. He’s been using it for a few weeks now and is impressed. Tough zippers that don’t get hung up. Tough stitching everywhere. Handle and and straps that are anchored solid. Very well constructed pack. Molle where Molle is useful. Patch area up top for Motopatches. Good size for every day use without being too small, big enough for what you need for a day. Great pack. Hung my 92FS on it using a GCA87 and an OSH-RTI holster. Carried it just fine… Did that to test the weight bearing. I could see putting all sorts of stuff on there. Extra pouches or medkit. Set it up for what you need for fast access.
From the Web Store:
High Speed Gear is proud to introduce our new M24P Day Pack. HSGI simplified and refined this design from their original “Moose” pack line. The design provides a basic, but incredibly tough pack that retains features capable of meeting the needs of military personal, law enforcement officers, and civilians alike.
The M24P is large enough to carry sustainment gear, extra ammunition, medical supplies and other gear for a rapid deployment, but is small enough to provide versatile storage options. The internal compartment has 2 large mesh pockets that can fit a large armor plate.
Dimensions: 14.50”L x 10”W x 5″D
Volume: 725 Cubic Inches
Fits up to 10″x12″ armor plate
