THE BRAZOS BACKPACK
The Brazos Backpack from Flying Circle Gear is the ultimate tactical pack for military, concealed carry and recreational use. Sporting more than 20 individual pockets, the Brazos pack is built around a hidden “pass-through” back pocket that is ideal for concealed carry of a firearm. Festooned with MOLLE webbing and including hook-and-loop patches for name tapes and "cool guy" stuff, the Brazos pack can be dressed up or down to suit any environment.
The spacious center compartments are adequate for toting a laptop computer ... or a tiny carbine. Compression straps keep the bag as small as possible, while padded shoulder straps are mesh lined for comfort and moisture management. The Brazos pack is literally packed with features and comes available in both black and coyote tan. It measures 16.5x19x12 inches when fully expanded and accepts most any standard hydration system.
A great pack such as this can literally be your home away from home. Back when I wore the uniform, I could break down a couple of MRES, arrange a little minimalist gear and live out of such a bag for a couple of days in a pinch.
Plan your loadout, and pack carefully. Include a water filter, some shelf-stable calories, a fire starter, something warm, a decent weapon and some spare magazines to effectively inoculate yourself against the unpleasant realities of life. Put one together for each member of your family, and you can be mobile in a moment’s notice when faced with threats ranging from an angry mob to terrorists to weather gone wild.
True, we live in some of the most discouraging times in American history, but that doesn’t mean you have to just roll over and die. Get some gear, get your mind around the problem, and make a plan.
The Brazos pack from Flying Circle Tactical demands its own unique manual of arms. Slip a soft armor panel from Patriot Armor into the back of the thing, along with your weapon and sundry gear. Nothing will be easy to access with the pack on your back. However, when faced with a threat, you quickly reverse the pack onto your front, and everything becomes handy.
The Brazos pack is comfortable when worn on the chest; and in this configuration (with an armor panel installed), it provides splendid ballistic protection. Your sidearm is instantly accessible from either side, and there is plenty of space for spare ammo. The pack maneuvers quickly and doesn’t get in the way.
I have scads of tactical bags, and you can tell at a glance which ones are “war worthy” and which ones are not. Every joint on the Brazos bag is heavy, reinforced and stout. The components are well reasoned, and the accouterments, such as zippers and pouches, are battleship tough. Wide shoulder straps make the bag easy to tote, and the transformation from book bag to tactical tool takes maybe four seconds.
The Flying Circle Tactical Brazos bag is the good stuff.
