Review of 5.11 Tactical's All Hazards PRIME Pack

Short of being a combat pack for contemporary soldiers, but not designed to be, the PRIME pack pretty well meets the needs of many other warriors of the day. Whether you are a police officer seeking a great active-shooter response bag, a prepper looking...

The other field test report I received was from a friend of mine who works overseas a lot in areas that are less than friendly. He had been looking for a pack that would carry all his "emergency necessities" when he had to leave wherever his secure area of rest was at the moment. His necessities include ammo, a first aid kit, toiletries, change of clothes, gloves, knife, glow sticks, flashlight, notebook, pens, pencils, compass, maps, etc. He's reported no deficiencies and has truly "customized" his with ammo pouches, a utility pouch and a GPS pouch on the outer surfaces.

The PRIME Pack is available in three colors: black, sandstone (a darker shade of Khaki) and OD Green. The MSRP on the 5.11 Tactical website is $219.99 which may seem steep but is about right given the current industry and the features/size of the pack. Of course, as always, I recommend that you do a Google search and find the lowest price available from the various 5.11 Tactical retailers, wholesalers, distributors, etc.

With nine reviewers having commented on it on the 5.11 Tactical site so far, the pack is carrying a 9.8 rating (out of ten). I don't think you'll be disappointed.
