Welcome back to the blog!

Today I have another review for you - we’re going to be looking at the LBX Tactical Minimalist Gear Pack, a 24-hour ops pack from one of my favourite gear manufacturers!

Firstly, let’s talk about the features of the MGP. It is a small backpack designed for 24-hour ops, and is split into two sections - forward and the rear. The forward opens 3/4 of the way down the length of the bag and has an opening section lined with loop velcro for attachment of hook pouches/accessories, it has an elastic hydration port and the contents are secured with 2 heavy-duty zippers with paracord pull tabs. The rear compartment has a sleeve for a hydration bladder (up to 2L) w/ built-in hanger, a lower portion lined with loop velcro for attachment of hook pouches/accessories and a pass-thru between rear/forward for hydration tube. What I love the most about the MGP is its versatility - it’s roomy enough to be used in-game but also, lightweight and compact enough to use in everyday life without looking out of place. When being used for a game, the front compartment is roomy enough for a shit tonne of pyro, BBs, gas and speedloaders, whilst still having room in the rear to carry a full 2L hydration bladder - perfect for those longer ops! I have used this pack in my day to day life and although the camo colours can look out of place with the wrong outfit, the pack serves me well, especially as the rear section of the MGP is also PERFECT for stowing my MacBook Pro when I take it out and about.

The exterior of the pack also has some pretty cool features - it has 6x6 loop modular webbing, a zippered admin pocket that has loop velcro for identification patches, each side of the pack has modular webbing for accessory pouches, padded adjustable shoulder straps w/ adjustable sternum strap for comfort, the entire back of the pack is padded, w/ air channels to promote comfort, and it has drain grommets on rear and bottom to enable drainage should the pack get wet.

The Minimalist Gear Pack from LBX retails for $99.99 (which is around £78 at the current exchange rate - not including shipping and customs, be sure to take those into account when purchasing from overseas) and is available in MultiCam Tropic, MultiCam, MultiCam Arid, MultiCam Black, Ranger Green and MAS Grey. I chose MultiCam Tropic so I could run the pack with my MCT X MC loadout and so that it wouldn’t stand out too much should I use it for everyday wear. The LBX MGP is an awesome, little pack - my only regret is not getting it in more colours!
