Maritime Load Carrying Pouch Suite

At their booth, Eagle had their upcoming Maritime Load Carrying Pouch Suite on display. The various pouches are made of 520 4-way stretch material and Hypalon. Pouches, such as horizontal and vertical 9x3x5 Utility Pouches, radio pouches, a low-profile admin pouch, and magazine pouches were shown.

Taking a look at the mag and radio pouches, you’ll notice they have elastic retention and quick-detach buckles, as well as a roll top around the pouch opening; this later feature is intended to provide easier insertion of magazines.

Turtle Assault Pack

The Turtle is a low-profile assault pack, constructed of 500D Cordura nylon. It features an expanding main compartment which will accommodate a hydration bladder, ballistic helmet, or similar sized items. Two expanding external pockets accommodate up to 1 L Nalgene bottles. Additionally, the Turtle can be worn alone, or connected to other Eagle carriers using adapter systems.

    Looks well-made as always, excited about the Turtle Pack. I’d spoken to Eagle about it before for the Aero vest (I believe it’s a development of that backpanel design?). The new assault pack looks very interesting – it’s a shame that Eagle products are almost impossible to get commercially (one vendor, EntryGear, to my knowledge – and his fill time is hit or miss).

    • Stephen says:

      What I don’t get is why they don’t use multicam jacquard weave webbing where they can instead of the solution dyed webbing since it fades and is rather dark/off in appearance compared to actual multicam??? A lot in industry have gone on to adopt this as standard for multicam, not sure why Eagle, leader in industry, cant get with the times… I understand it costs more but come on… I have an AERO SOFBAV with the weave, but even at shot show the SOFBAV on display was sporting the older solution dyed webbing… First Spear definitely looks to be ahead in the game these days.

      • Phil says:

        neither does the inventor of multicam, crye.

      • Lasse says:

        I hate to nitpick (just kidding, I love it), but this webbing isn’t solution dyed unless it’s solution dyed white. This is printed webbing, which is one of the reasons why it fades. A solution dyed product can’t really fade, as the color is melted into the yarn when it’s spun.

        And this type of webbing (from Texcel) is more abrasion resistant than the stuff Murdoc offers from what I’ve seen. And I’m pretty sure the price of printed webbing is higher than the jaquard. My guess is that they simply offer different values, one is a more accurate color match, the other one is durability.

  2. Oscar says:

    I wonder when these products will be uploaded onto Eagle’s website

    • Adrian says:

      No kidding man. No point in making products if they aren’t going to push the products to the customers.

  3. Lean-N-Supreme says:

    Anyone know any retailers carrying Eagle products? Can’t find their products anywhere.

    • ThatBlueFalcon says:

      Entrygear.com (Tactical Advantage)

    • straps says:

      Entry Gear and OPT get select pieces like Yotes and Armor carriers now an again.

      Eagle seems to be almost exclusively contract sales nowadays. In comparison, sales to individuals are a PITA.

    • Chris K. says:

      O P Tactical will continue to carry select items as long as we can work it out with Eagle to make it viable. This hopefully will be the case in the near future.

  4. That Jungle Ruck honestly blew me away when I picked it up. I can’t imagine I’ll ever get to try one but I really hope to hear test results some day from anyone who tries it out while fully weighted.

    Here’s hoping us mortals can actually get hold of some of the pouch line too.

  5. Mike D says:

    Modular Assault Pack? Hmmm, the MAP I remember was a little more plain and streamlined. Either way, glad to see that Eagle is moving forward and trying to catch back up!

  6. james says:

    Eagle can make pretty good kit and I know the craziness to get your samples ready for a big show…

    But the bar tack on the zipper pull is not even close… God is found in the details and that just does not represent well for them.

    As for the pack design… pretty spiffy!
