Tech Go Bag was designed for aircraft crews
as a grab and go back. the first thing that strikes
you is the slim profile compared to the normal tear
dropped one we are used to with most bags.
That and the fact that it only has one shoulder strap
and is intended to be worn in the sling postion or around
the waistband (I doubt that postion would be very comfortable)
For comparison here it is pictured next to my old school
Here are back and side views.
And a borrowed front picture since
I forgot to take one. The sling features a side release
Below is the main compartment, I like this
more than the traditional three day pack. It opens all
the way so you can see everything you have int the bag
as it lays flat, you are not stuck digging for stuff
in the bottom of the bag. It can be accessed by ripping
a pull tab at the top of the flap or using a strap that
runs between both zippers.
The MOLLE pouch shown at the bottom of the bag and by
itself is this
one from Cheaper Than Dirt and is perfect for fitting
the width of the bag. This one is my FAK. May pick up
a few more since it would be great for sub loading.
Using three or four of them would be great.
The pocket that you can see the Microtech
Auto sitting in is supposed to be a hydration pouch.
I just don't see it. Too narrow and I did not see any
tube access at the top of the pack. I may try to use
it as a slash pocket for my Becker Tac Tool. As for
water you can see the custom Nalgene pouch made by Arron
Chen AKA Snake Eyes on the forum mounted on the right
side of the pack in the first pictures.
Here you can see the two slash pockets
that run the length of the main compartment on each side.
They are good size and can be overstuffed. They have dual
The most obvious pockets on the bag
are the three on the outside. You can see here in the
picture that a Pelican 1020 Micro Case fits well in the
pockets. I keep my camera in mine. In the middle one I
have a Taurus Model 85 UL and the top one is just and
admin pouch with pens etc. I do wonder why SO Tech chose
not to use dual zippers on these pockets since I like
that on all pockets.
are three rows of PALS webbing on the top and bottom
of each side of the pack. All of them are usable and
not just there for show. The bag also has the traditonal
drag handle on top as well as one on the bottom that
is velcroed down when not in use to avoid snagging.This
is the new Bag of Evil.
There are two things that I don't like about the bag
and they are small ones.
One is that there is no velcro on the bag for adding
a name tag, but I can take care of that.
The second is the big SO
Tech green tag on the side of the bag that looks
like it should be on the inside of the bag. But I can
cut that off too, that is unless I want eveyone to know
how damn cool I am.
Final points, I love the fact that because of the one
shoulder strap for sling carry this bag fits me and
is comfortable. Because of my size most backpacks I
can tolerate if I am in just a t-shirt. Add a light
jacket and forget about it.
Another think I love is that because of the design of
the pack everything stays where you put it when it wasy
laying flat to pack it, unlike most packs that lay flat
to pack and when you pick it up everything falls to
So far I am very fond of this pack and expect to see
it become very popular with civilians and troops.
