This started out as a request for options to buying a quality larger EDC pack that would comfortably hold my EDC junk plus all of my work stuff for less then $160. I was referred to lapolicegear.com and I was impressed with their pricing and free shipping over $60. After a lot of personal back and forth between their 3 day pack and their Operators pack I decided the Operators pack ultimately had the side pockets that if I bought separately and attached to the 3 day pack with the molle points it would be more expensive then the Operators pack. The 3 day is more of a stuff it Bag like my hunting pack with large compartments that you have to empty to get to the bottom contents. The Operators pack opens up more like a suitcase in the back large compartment (and has many straps to keep your gear in place). I was able to get my EDC gear into it with loads of room to spare so adding my work stuff will be very easy. (Of course the bigger the bag the more I seem to "need" lol) Now I'll be honest, between my Badlands super day pack at $160 vs the Operator pack for $50 there is a much better fit and finish on my Badlands pack but for $110 cheaper the operator pack is very practical for everyday carry and seems pretty durable so far. Plus it's just black (comes in a couple colors) and not realtree camo. I'm sure I'll rearrange as well as add and subtract gear as I find I am using it or not but so far I'm happy with the amount of room and organization the pack has. Link to their video: They also sell 5.11, Maxpedition and some other name brand stuff at very reasonable prices.
