The Le­gion Tac­ti­cal Day Pack from Can­nae sounds as im­pres­sive as it is

The Can­nae brand may be new to most of our read­ers, but we think this high-specification out­fit from the U.S., dis­trib­uted over here by Scott Coun­try In­ter­na­tional, is go­ing to be­come a ma­jor player in U.K. shoot­ing. If thor­oughly re­searched, to­tally tested per­for­mance fea­tures grab your in­ter­est, then the Le­gion Tac­ti­cal Day Pack we brought back from the North­ern Shoot­ing Show is sure to be worth study­ing. We thought so, and here’s what we found out about this truly re­mark­able prod­uct.

Com­bat her­itage

Can­nae Vice-Pres­i­dent, Tor An­der­son, took us through the main fea­tures of the Le­gion Day Pack, and such was the range and devel­op­ment of them, he was still ex­plain­ing over an hour later. Tor is ex-spe­cial forces and his Can­nae devel­op­ment team has a strong mil­i­tary back­ground where only the very best will do, so lis­ten­ing to the evo­lu­tion of what most would con­sider to be a sim­ple back­pack was truly fas­ci­nat­ing stuff. Equally in­trigu­ing, was the fact that some­thing cre­ated from the ex­pe­ri­ence of front­line com­bat, is also at home in the airgun hunt­ing field, or as an ev­ery­day ac­ces­sory.

Main fea­tures

The 21 litre ca­pac­ity Le­gion Day Pack is built – and built is the right term – around a su­per­tough 500D Cor­dura ny­lon shell, and an ar­ray of 12 com­part­ments and straps se­cured by Du­raflex buck­les and spe­cially com­mis­sioned YKK zip­pers, plus four, heavy-duty D-Ring ex­te­rior at­tach­ment points, and 54 mil-spec MOLLE at­tach­ment points. A thick, rub­berised Easy Grab top han­dle is de­signed to cope with any amount of load, and each zip­per tab is fit­ted with Su­per-Grip pulls for fum­ble-free op­er­a­tion.

The pack’s back pad has moulded grooves for max­i­mum air-flow, which keeps the wearer cool dur­ing ex­tended use, with­out com­pro­mis­ing on com­fort. This ‘no com­pro­mise’ brief is per­haps the main fea­ture of the Can­nae phi­los­o­phy.

In­te­rior de­vel­op­ments

In­side the Day Pack, you’ll find a ful­ly­padded, 15-inch lap-top com­part­ment, a pro­tected, sun­glasses pouch, plus pock­ets for what­ever ac­ces­sories you need, in­clud­ing a 2-litre hy­dra­tion blad­der. The in­te­rior lin­ing has been de­signed to work with Vel­cro pouches and the main com­part­ment zip­per of­fers sin­gle-pull, quick ac­cess to the Day Pack’s con­tents.

Other fea­tures

The small fea­tures so of­ten de­fine the true qual­ity of a prod­uct, and the Com­bat Day Pack is packed with them. Each ex­te­rior zip is pro­tected and there are drainage vents at the base of the side pock­ets and main com­part­ment. The tag ends of the ad­just­ment straps carry Vel­cro tabs to stop them flap­ping around, and there’s a neat lit­tle port for your ear­phone, plus, should you de­cide you don’t need the waist­band, this tucks away neatly and can’t snag on un­der­growth and the like.


Ev­ery fea­ture, fix­ture and fit­ting of this prod­uct has been de­signed and tested by ex­perts who will not tol­er­ate sec­ond-best. This is a gen­uinely im­pres­sive piece of kit, it car­ries a life­time war­ranty – and there’s much, much more on its way from the Can­nae team.
