Great short term OP bag.
I gotta say I really like this pack. I have used it in conjunction with the overload pack for extras that I need for field maneuvers. Over our last annual training I was able to make better use out of the pack as a 12hr OP/LP pack. I was able to fit an LTLM along with an extra battery cassette, loads of extra double A battery for the optic, an extra BB-2590/U battery for my Radio, an MRE (2 if I broke them down) along with a map,notebook and protractor and a little room to spare.The pack was great for moving both in and out of Humvee patrols with its compact size and carry capacity, you could always keep the pack with you no matter where you went. The problem I had with it was with the hinge in the middle of the pack. The hinge is key to the design as a pack lid but as a pack ,sometimes has a tendency to fold up on itself making the pack uncomfortable to wear.
Doesn’t mate tightly with the NICE frame if you have a pack attached to it. Flops around and adds weight to the top of your frame. As a separate day pack the straps have little support or heft, causing them to dig into your shoulders and pinch the sides of your back/underarms.
It just hasn't been thought through well enough. As a Mystery Ranch product it is essentially indestructable, but you don't want to carry it.
Daypack LID as an OP bag.
From using this sense 2012. I have to say I am please with the quality and durability of the Daypack Lid. I have used this bag as an OP bag, shooting bag, shooting platform, Optics bag. I at first admit that I thought the Daypack was too small at first, but I can fit 1DOS of chow 2 liters of water and a couple of 5-hour energies in the top pouch alone. I have also fitted a camera, V-21B LRF (yes they are still around), couple of 148 batteries and extra socks. The idea of the Daypack can be clipped to the top of the pack is an answer to me for ditch and run situations for obvious reasons. I do however wish that there is other designs for the main pouch for different items that may need to be carried. All in all, hands down I don't want to try another OP bag.
