    Can you say Goldie Locks! This is it, …, November 15, 2015
    Rose (Gloucester) –

    Can you say Goldie Locks ! This is it, FINALLY. After searching, shopping and buying a few losers, I finally have a winner, thank you Direct Action !!! I bought this via the great review on You Tube by Living Survival. It did not disappoint. Some of the features are hard to see on videos so I will take the time to break them down here. Hope my pics help you.
    It’s all about special detail, and this bag is loaded.

    Pic 1 The bag, this is the bag fully loaded with tent ( will show load out at the end)
    Pic 2 The bottom, notice this design has quality buckles, not just lashing to hold the tent, also notice the Velcro keepers for extra strapping, no more dangling mess while not in use.
    Pic 3 The bottom, without the tent, strap tucked away nice and neat
    Pic 4 The back Shoulder straps are on the thin side, no more bulky stiff neck, thickly padded with ventilation. Great for women like me… Or when wearing bulky winter coats. Chest strap fully adjustable with ELEASTC ! Every strap and the waist belt has keepers, some Velcro on belt, elastic, again no more dangling strap mess getting caught on everything. Buckles are all top quality with the cool logo. Nice detail.
    Pic 5. Side pockets expand, but this side I attached a pouch. When closed pockets are great to securely hold knives, saws, axes, etc… Notice there are two sets of buckles that can lash the tools in. In this pic used my mans wall collection for demonstration, (knife is huge) see Pic 6 shows size of knife and how much room you have.
    Pic 7 Side pocket expanded with my Stanley 32 oz stainless water bottle, securely buckled in. I put paracord through a loop on the pocket to highlight the you can tie stuff down or put a carabiner there as well. Pockets close with Velcro as well to use as –small pockets. So much detail !
    Pic 8. Zipper pulls are all 550 paracord with what feels like rubber, or ranger band material as a protective sheath. Zipper tabs are heavy plastic and get this, are curved to the countour of your fingers…lol. Zippers heavy duty top quality, and are inverted like all smart manufactures are doing now to add barrier for rain/ snow leaks. Three major compartments are double zipped.
    Pic 9. Check out the handle! To be honest this drew me in, and the beautiful pattern, and the name…lol ok, ok …. Yes, it’s 550 braided paracord on a heavy plastic loop. Loops everywhere on this bag! In this pic check out also the double stitching, it’s flawless, everywhere, not a thread out of place.
    Pic 10. The front pocket is good size, fits my Galaxy Note 5, head lamp, and still more room for other things
    Pic 11. The first compartment opens all the way !!! Clam shell !! Yes !! Organization is just great. It is wider at the bottom so it fits tons of stuff.
    Pic 12. The main compartment does not fully open but opens enough to get to everything easily… it’s perfect. Has a back slip pocket for a water bladder, tried to show attachment point on pic, and a mesh pocket. What you don’t see is my big Grand Trunk hammock/tarp combo at the bottom.
    Pic 13. And last the back with a padded compartment with Velcro strap that also can be used for a water bladder as well, has the attachment buckle like inside, or used for iPad, tablet, etc…
    Pic 14. This is all the gear that fits in and on this bag, including military poncho, tarp and nylon shelter in the green bag more stuff still inside pockets, including my radio etc… ( minus the cat )

    …good looking backpack,…but uncomfortable to use, August 14, 2015
    Roberto Pommerening (São Paulo, SP Brazil) –

    Verified Purchase(What’s this?)
    I really like Tactical/ Military bags and was really looking forward to use this backpack after reading (amazon) and watching (youtube) so many reviews online. Now, after using it a couple of times I would like to pass on my impressions. I am NOT planning to use it for Hunting, Fishing, Bug out bag, Get Home Bag, ” stay-in the-woods” bag, Survival training, “leave-in-the-car” bag.

    I am 6’1″ tall, 170 pounds and bought it just as an “urban” EDC “travel-with-the-family” / “Walk-all-day-Sightseeing” bag / Diaper Bag! So, I was looking for a comfortable backpack with a large enough storage room for my Macbook 13″ or my iPad, some food/ snacks, beverages, camera, some baby stuff you need while on the road.

    It is a shame that a such nice looking bag is quite uncomfortable to use after all. All reviews mentioned the thick padding as a nice feature, but to me they are just a bit too hard/ stiff. I understand this is a military backpack and sturdiness and durability is a major factor here, but they could have used a bit softer padding, in my opinion. If you use this bag while wearing a thick jacket, it is not much of a problem, but, nevertheless, the shoulder straps get even more uncomfortable if you have to put both arms forward (when riding a bike) or carry your child. It makes me wonder why the shoulder straps on their bigger model GHOST (which carries more weight) is thinner padded and apparently very comfortable, according to reviews. (BTW. I have read a few reviews mentioning how uncomfortable this backpack is…but still gave it a try…my mistake)

    Another annoying issue are the buckles at the bottom of the bag. they are fixed at the inner side of the bag and therefore constantly in contact with your lower back. So, you can feel the buckles on your back if you use the backpack wearing only a T-Shirt. (again, with a jacket, this is not much of a problem)…this could have been easily avoided by fixing the buckles on the other/outer side of the bag.

    Now to the outer pockets. They are good if you want to carry any kind of bottle or canteen, but one would be enough, imo. I really miss a kind of utility pouch with Zippers (like the ones on the 5.11 Rush 24)…that combination would be great.

    Material and overall “building” quality
    Shape and Look
    Storage Capacity (for its purpose)
    Color options

    Cons (for me)
    side pockets are both open at the top (no zipper to close)…would have preferred if one side would have a pouch-like pocket.
    Padding of shoulder straps are too thick/ hard/ stiff – Backpack is NOT Comfortable to use
    Lower part of padding on the back has a very abrasive finishing and it keeps rubbing against your cloth. Unless you wear a 500 D Cordura t-shirt, your cloth will not last long using this bag.
    (no Amazon PRIME shipping)

    I haven’t tried other military specs brands like 5.11 Rush, Vanquest, Maxpedition, etc…to compare. But the Dragon Egg is not suited for me, specially at this price range.
